Phlegm often accompanies colds and other upper respiratory infections. It tends to collect and congest in the chest and throat and is usually expelled through coughing.
The presence of phlegm is usually indicated by a constant need for throat clearing, constant cough, runny nose, difficulty breathing, feeling weak and, in some cases, fever.
While not a serious health problem, if phlegm is not treated timely, it can clog and irritate the bronchial tubes and in turn cause a secondary upper respiratory infection.
Dealing with phlegm can be incredibly frustrating and seemingly never ending. But there are effective, natural home remedies that work quickly and without causing side effects.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
- Apple cider vinegar
- coconut oil
Just slice a piece of fresh ginger and put the slices in a pan filled with water. Next, let it boil, remove it and leave it for 15 minutes. When it’s cool just pour it into glass container and refrigerate it.
Whenever you feel suffocated, just add 1 teaspoon of raw honey, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to your drink. Within 2 hours your lungs will be swept clean!
