Nmami says a simple way to ease cough is to gargle with salt water. Now, this solution is effective in killing bacteria and also easing the pain. To make one at home, mix half a teaspoon of salt and one glass of warm water.
2. Sip on ginger water
Ginger can work wonders for cough. Its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties can actually help you get rid of cough.
3. Betadine gargle
Again, Namami states that this solution is effective in killing bacteria, easing the pain and loosening up the mucus. So, when the cough is at the initial stage, start with these three simple home remedies to prevent cough aggravation.
Take a look:
As per Nmami Agarwal, these four home remedies can help keep acidity at bay. She suggests having one teaspoon of fennel seed with warm water to help you get some relief from acidity and other symptoms like heartburn. She also adds that jaggery contains potassium and magnesium. While Potassium is great to maintain pH balance, it’s also required for the production of mucus in the stomach lining. Magnesium is required for your digestive system to work smoothly. So, just a small piece of jaggery will take care of your issue related to acidity. As per what Nmami advises, simply chew cumin seeds or boil one tablespoon of the same in a glass of water to relieve acidity. The fourth home remedy includes ajwain. The nutritionist says it’s great for acidity and flatulence. It’s an effective anti-acidic agent and helps in the process of digestion as well.
Hope these home remedies by Nmami Agarwal help you in your day-to-day life.
