Home remedies for Cough and Covid

COVID-19, the curse of 2019 that spreads to 2020 and still going in 2021. Analyzing African and Indian versions of the virus we can say that it's mutating and we are not sure when it will be gone. It might take over 2-3  more years to vaccinate the whole earth and with its mutative nature how successful it will be is questionable. We can assume that we will need to live with it for some foreseeable future. 

There is still not much-proven medicine for covid yet. So I am introducing some natural remedies that are working wonders for covid patients. I have experienced it myself so can attest to it. These home remedies not only work for covid but also works wonder for dry cough, bad cough, and cough of children.

Avoid normal temperature water and forbid cold water. Always try to drink warm water. It has always been the strategy with any cold, dry cough, bad cough, and covid at its core is a cold. If you keep drinking warm water instead of normal water the chances of covid deteriorating will be severely weakened. 

Boiled Eggs:

Eat while they are hot for sore throat and it will work for both weakness and sore throat. Eating a whole egg is very nutritious and can cure you of dry cough. It’s best for children as it boosts their immunity. Having a whole egg daily can prevent cough in children. 


Eat lots of juice, especially juice with high vitamin C content. I recommend malta and orange juice. These juices have proven themselves in the fight against the cold for years. You can always depend on them. Also, eat as much fruit as possible. No cold means no dry cough. 

Lemon water: 

Search for lemonade and lemon water recipes on the internet and make the one best suited for you. But always have at least one cup a day. The best time would be in the evening. Avoid cold water in lemonade. Hot lemon water is a great remedy for dry cough.
