How to Cure Chest Congestion Naturally
When you or your family need a cure for chest congestion, this is a natural cure. Instead of using over the counter drugs try this natural remedy. This works wonderfully. Well, it WORKS wonderful, doesn't smell wonderful.
Things You'll Need:
- Cider Vinegar
Slice an onion very thin. Sautee' the slices in apple cider vinegar until clear. Add cornmeal to the onion/vinegar. Just enough to be slightly thicken. It will thicken more as it cools. Cut a square of a t-shirt. Put the mixture into the square and fold it over, like a pillow.
Put the t-shirt with the remedy directly onto the chest of the congested person, as hot as they can stand it. It will smell but that is why it works. The "fumes" from the onions and vinegar will penetrate and break up the chest congestion.
Hold the homemade pillow in your hand, under the blanket, so they will breathe it in. On babies, I wouldn't advise putting it on their chests. Rather, cradle the baby in your arms with a blanket thrown over them.
If you can get them to do it, the mucus will come up and be clear in an hour or two. Your family will fight you on this. You may need need to keep doing this for several applications if the congestion is really bad.
Tips & Warnings
- Heat from a blanket also helps with the remedy to loosen the mucus.
- This also works for ANY congestion... smoker's cough, colds, etc.
- Don't leave the remedy on babies since they move around and it could get in their eyes.
