This cough remedy works!

Most of you know that I’ve been coughing close to 3 weeks now and after 2 visits to the GP, my cough was no where better. I still have lots of phlegm and my throat get itchy especially during my zzz time at night. I kept drinking water and that disturbed my sleeps as I have to wake up and go to the loo the entire night!

Then last week my mom told me to try warm Coke with ginger. I was a little doubtful initially but I’ve heard about some Hongkies taking warm Coke to sooth their throat so I decided to give it a shot! And I must say, its kind of works!

What you need to do is open a can of Coke and put it into a double-boiler and boil it with a piece of ginger of 0.5cm thickness for about 30 minutes. Drink it warm.

Both Darrius and myself have been taking it for the past 3 days and I can feel my throat is less itchy now. Will get a few more cans later so we can have it for a few more days.

    I drink ‘not-cold’ coke with salt to soothe my sore throat all the time and that works too…

    now I know this method to deal with itchy-cough – Wow! That’s marvelous! Thank you for sharing.

    Just curious, wouldn’t Darrius feel that the ginger taste is too ‘SPICY’ for him?

  2. Have you check with doctor what is that in Coke ingredient that can help your cough. Better find out more, afraid will have long term side effects. Furthermore Coke contain high level of sugar, isit safe for baby?

    Haven’t heard of this method before. Glad it works for you. For me, I would have honey and ginger instead. But that’s because the only soft drink I take is 100-plus.

    Oh. I ‘m so going to try.

    One question… does drinking it keep you up? If I drink Coke or Coffee or anything with caffeine after 9pm, I’ll be up all night.

    Coke has a high sugar content, so if drink, drink in moderation.

    Thanks for the tip. My mom starts coughing easily and it would take weeks for her to stop it. I will ask her to try this when it happens next. Thanks again.

    Angeline,
    Yeah, you can always try this one. I do drink with salt sometimes.
    Darrius loves all things that we don’t allow him to have all the time so when I gave him this he just sapu all!

    Stephanie,
    Drink a little once in a while won’t have adverse effects.

    Irene,
    You are most welcome!

    3lilangels,
    Actually 100 plus is just salt water 😛

    Irene,
    Take them in the morning so by night time all down the system.

    Chin Nee,
    Well, according to my dad, Coke was initially a cough syrup… but they dilute it coz of the taste people do not want to drink it. He works with Coke for over 20+ years… so you got to trust him!

    Michelle,
    Yeap… we don’t always drink so not a problem

    FamilyFirst,
    Hope this remedy works for your mom!
