Cough Treatment with Folk Remedies
Cough is an involuntary exhalation that is caused by irritation of the larynx, bronchus, throat or lung tissue( tuberculosis, pneumonia, asthma).Cough is manifested as a symptom of many diseases. It is dry and wet, periodic and paroxysmal. But, regardless of the types and causes of cough, it causes significant discomfort, and a run-in cough can lead to serious and dangerous consequences. Therefore, cough requires timely and correct treatment. It can be of two types: medical and folk. Clearly, the main advantage of medical treatment is a quick result, but the active use of antibiotics adversely affects the body and immunity. Treating cough with folk remedies on the contrary can last a little longer, but, on the other hand, it is absolutely safe. In addition, another advantage is the fact that cough treatment with folk remedies involves the use of mostly not expensive herbs, tinctures and other means. Therefore, it does not require large financial costs. This is very relevant for today, as the drugs are very expensive.
