A spoonful of sugar ...
Hopefully, most of you have been spared from the nasty spring viruses that have been circulating Denver. For those of you the haven't been so lucky I wanted to share a safe and effective home remedy for coughing - honey! A study comparing 2 teaspoons of honey to children's cough syrups containing dextromethorphan found honey to be more effective. This is great news considering dextromethorphan can cause life-threatening side effects in kids under 4.
Consider using local honey and you might gain some additional protection against seasonal allergies.
I have tried this remedy on myself, my partner and my new puppy and it was effective for everyone :)
