Expensive cough syrups and pills are fine and all, but people have also been using home remedies for generations to cure winter illnesses.
Take this healthly concoction, for example. Thanks to the power of bananas and honey to sooth both the throat and lungs, pesky coughs and bronchitis could soon be a thing of the past.
Best of all? This natural cure is super easy to throw together. And now that fall is here, this home remedy couldn't have come at a better time. I'm testing it right away!
What you need for a one-day supply:
16 ounces (400 ml) of boiling water
2 medium-sized bananas
2 tablespoons honey
1. Peel the bananas and mash them with a plastic fork. (Don't let bananas come into contact with metal as it causes the fruit to quickly become brown.)
2. Put the mashed bananas in a ceramic or glass container and pour in the boiling water. Let soak for 30 minutes.
3. After the mixture has cooled, stir in the honey. Remember to double check that it's really cool—because the honey will lose its effect when heated.
4. Now, your natural cough and bronchitis cure is ready! Drink it four times a day, four ounces (100 ml) at a time, to see results within about five days. Note that this recipe only makes enough for one day, so you can prepare the next days supply the night before.
