Brad thought it was a good remedy. It tasted pretty bad, but not unbearable, like sweet onion. It was easy to make and easy to take. He said it felt very soothing when he took it, and it helped quickly with the cough. The biggest downside was his breath afterwards, haha. The downside from my point of view is that it takes 6-8 hours to make. Also, I have read that sugar suppresses the immune system, and thus I wonder if it is hindering the healing process. Perhaps honey would work in place of it.
How do you fight off a cough?
