Page 1 of 212

Cough:

  • A cough is a sudden and often repetitively occurring reflex which helps to clear the large breathing passages from secretions, irritants, foreign particles and microbes. The cough reflex consists of three phases: an inhalation, a forced exhalation against a closed glottis, and a violent release of air from the lungs following opening of the glottis, usually accompanied by a distinctive sound. Coughing is either voluntary or involuntary.

Causes:

  • The cause of a cough is dependent upon how long the symptom has been present. For example, the causes of an acute cough may be quite different from the causes of a chronic cough. In at least 25% of cases of a chronic cough, there are at least 2 medical conditions causing the cough in the person.

Symptoms:

  1. Fever
  2. Chills
  3. Body aches
  4. Sore throat
  5. Nausea

Diagnosis:

  • Your doctor may recommend tests based on the results of your medical history and physical exam. For example, if you have symptoms of GERD, your doctor may recommend a pH probe. This test measures the acid level of the fluid in your throat.

Ingredients:

  1. Onion
  2. Sugar

Natural Remedies:

  • Slice up two medium onions into a pan, and sprinkle ½ cup of sugar over it. Set your oven to low heat, and allow the mixture to cook for about thirty minutes. Chop up onions into a bowl, and sprinkl with sugar. Cover the bowl and allow the mixture to sit overnight.
  • Peel the onion and cut into small pieces to grind it. Take the thin cloth to filter the grind paste and take the juice. If you eat one tablespoon of juice, you will subside the cough.
