"Eat honey, my son, for it is good; honey from the comb is sweet to your taste." Prov. 24:13

Helpful tip from Dr. Brenda: honey can be used as cough medicine... and to me, it works just as well as Robitussin, but tastes much better. The first time I tried it on myself, it was because I had a cough traveling in the car and all I had was a honey stick available... the cough stopped right away, but I thought it might be a fluke. Last night, I had a coughing attack and so I tried the honey again. One teaspoon and my cough stopped. This morning, I had another coughing attack and took two teaspoons (for good measure and because the piano tuner was here and I didn't want him to think I have TB or something).....and it stopped right away again. Yay! I love natural remedies!

Funny you mention that. Over Thanksgiving, my brother (the pharmacist) had a horrible cough. My grandmother fixed him up an "old fashioned" cough medicine. The ingredients (and I don't know in what quantities) were honey, peppermint, and bourbon. Maybe you can try that next time and if it doesn't work you can always take a little extra bourbon and sleep it off! :)

I MAY try this one day - though I hate the taste of honey - would rather drink Robitussin ANYDAY! What did you have a "honey stick" for anyway? I don't even know what that is!
