chest congestion remedies

What to eat when you're sick, according to a nutritionist

Easing congested airways can also be helped by staying hydrated [1] and drinking "warm fluids such as herbal teas and broths, as they help moisten the throat and promote hydration." Tuck says to "look for ginger, peppermint, or lemon tea, or try making your own by adding fresh lemon, grated ginger and a teaspoon of honey to hot water."

Cold remedies

Tuck suggests tucking into warming soups and stews when fighting a cold. "Bone broths help feed the body with nutrient-rich ingredients that may help support the immune system," she shares.

Her tip for sipping? "Add chilli or capsicum for extra spice and antioxidant benefits. Capsicum contains vitamin C and bioflavonoids, both of which may help to reduce the severity of colds, while cayenne pepper also contains the important nutrient beta carotene (provitamin A), which may help to keep the mucous membranes healthy and protected against harmful pathogens[2]."

For the cough and chest you can try any of these. Which ever best suits you ok.

1. Put half a teaspoon of licorice root tea in a cup of hot water, wait 10 minutes, strain and drink. Repeat 3 times daily.

2. Start now by


Vix, You can buy the strips and but on your nose, or you can inhale it from the bottle - or, rub some on your chest. When you wake up in the morning, you'll already be feeling better!


Tea is a natural antiseptic so is good for coughs etc. Honey is also good for chests and coughs. I'd suggest trying some eucaplyptus oil and putting a few drops on your pillow when you sleep - it will help clear the congestion as you breath it in.
