What is Cough?

It is one of the commonest problems encountered by all. Respiratory ailments such as common cold, bronchitis or pharyngitis cause cough. In Ayurveda, this condition is termed as "Kasa".

  • Ripe grapes are most effective treatment of cough. A cup of grape juice with a teaspoon of honey is advised for cough relief.
  • One teaspoon of onion juice with one teaspoon of honey, kept for 4-5 hrs and taken twice a day, is an excellent treatment for cough. Fresh turmeric juice is useful in dry cough.
