View Full Version : RAW cough syrup?

My cough is getting worse to the point my throat is swollen as well as my neck. Keeping in mind I don't have honey, is there any kind of raw cough syrup or something for the cough/throat anyone would recommend? :)

Try some Lemon Tea with Cayenne.

slippery elm. im not sure if you mean you dont have honey at the moment or you dont use honey. if you use honey, honey with lemon and slippery elm is good. slippery elm coats the throat and is soothing

I'd target the problem. Is it an allergy, illness related, what?

I'm pretty sure it's just my lungs coughing up years of nastiness from being a smoker. Since I started detoxing I've cut down from 40 a day to about 8 a day and my cough is getting worse and worse and I'm smoking less and less (Which is excellent as I want to quit) but the detox is trying to purge toxins from my lungs. I'm willing to let it happen but it's just so painful. Right now my ribs and sides feel bruised from coughing so much. I cannot simply stop smoking cold turkey else I'll go insane and go right back to 40 a day (I'm not a cold turkey person, I'm a cut down person!)
I just needed something to help sooth the pain. I have some slippery elm, I'll make that tea. I don't eat honey, can I substitute it with agave?

Toxins don't "come out" of lungs all of the sudden. By not smoking (as much) you are probably not impairing the cilia in your lungs that push mucus up and out of your throat. Since they are working better now, you are just experiencing a mucus buildup. The mucus is due to smoking itself. Marijuana in particular pisses off the cilia as well as builds up a lot of mucus, so lots of mucus the day after smoking weed.

Feel better soon. I stumbled on a natural cough rememdy, but it uses honey and lots of odd ingredients. Anyway... all illness is detox, no matter what we call it. I would rest and drink green juices and water.
