Cough remedies

Cough remedies work by soothing the cough reflex or helping the body expel mucus

Echinacea is a traditional herb known to aid the body in its fight against the symptoms of cold and flu. Supplements like Echinaforce help increase the body’s resistance to infection by strengthening the immune system, allowing the body to fight the misery of colds and flu.

      This suggests that you have thick mucus at the back of the throat. There is a herb called Plantago that can help with this. In addition, avoid dairy produce as this class of foods tend to create mucus in the respiratory system.
