Breathe Easy: Cough Relief might be easier than you think!

CoughingYou can help relieve coughs, assist recuperation and support healthy lung function all at the same time…

1. Help relieve coughs

Firstly, you need to address the symptoms of a coughto help you feel better. Reach for herbs with anti-infective, anticatarrhal (mucus resolving), expectorant and antitussive (coughrelieving) actions to relieve coughs caused by:
  • Bronchial congestion (productive and non-productive)
  • Bronchitis
  • Common cold, flu
  • Upper respiratory tract infections, such as laryngitis
In Chinese medicine terms, some Chinese herbs help relieve a cough by dissolving and clearing phlegm, moistening dryness, reducing spasm and easing Lung Qi(vital energy).

2. Assist recuperation

Coughing can be exhausting, especially if your cough disturbs your precious sleep, which can further hinder your recovery. Specific tonic (trophorestorative) herbs can assist with recuperation.

3. Support healthy lung function

More than cough relief alone, specific Chinese herbs can also help maintain healthy respiratory function. Some people, who get repeated lung infections and coughs, could benefit from nourishing their overall lung health. Nine herbs to know when it comes to coughs and lung health:
  • Inula helenium (Elecampane)
  • Marrubium vulgare (White Horehound)
  • Pinellia ternate (Pinellia)
  • Aster tataricus (Aster)
  • Houttuynia cordata (Houttuynia)
  • Platycodon grandiflorus (Balloon flower)
  • Stemona japonica (Stemona)
  • Glycyrrhiza uralensis (Licorice)
