Home Remedies for Cough

Probiotics

Probiotics are not able to give direct relief from a cough, but still able to help balance the build up of bacteria in the intestines. By controlling the bacteria it is possible to promote the immune system to make it more efficient at fighting off the cough. Probiotics are naturally found in several foods, including sourdough breads, miso soup and some yogurt types.

Bromelain

Bromelain is a type of enzyme found in fruit like the pineapple. It is useful for loosening the build up of mucus in the throat and to suppress further coughs. The best way to introduce bromelain to the diet is to drink a glass of pineapple juice two or three times per day, or simply eat a slice of fresh fruit.

This enzyme can have other useful benefits such as treating swelling and inflammation, as well as allergy-based sinus issues.

Peppermint

Peppermint leaves act much like a decongestant to help break down mucus and soothe the throat. The preferred way to benefit from this remedy is a regular drink of peppermint tea. Alternatively, it is possible to inhale peppermint vapors by creating a steam bath consisting of hot water and peppermint oil. Add 150 ml of hot water for every ¾ drops of oil.

Thyme

Thyme is rich in flavonoids that are useful for relaxing the throat muscles to lessen inflammation and minimize the discomfort from coughing. A regular drink of thyme tea is a useful remedy. This is created by blending 2 tsp of thyme leaves with 1-cup of hot water. Leave the tea to steep for 8-10 minutes before drinking.

Caregivers

Understanding your triggers for stress will also provide the information you need, to combat the situation before it rises to an unmanageable level. Use the tips below to provide the self-care required to maintain your well being in your role as caregiver.

1. Your needs

Determine what is it that you do now or have done in the past to eliminate your stress. There are many ways to reduce, or eliminate stress. Some common activities include – deep breathing, physical & mental exercises, meditation, comedy clubs or movies, 7-9 hours of sleep per night, petting your dog or cat, and massage. Think about what you usually do to tone it down when faced with a stressful situation.

2. Schedule ‘me time’ regularly

The definition of ‘me time’, and the regularity will be different for everyone. For some it could mean something as small as a 15 minute warm, bubble bath. For others it could mean a two hour lunch with the girls. It actually means whatever it takes for you to unwind, and recharge.

3. Let your emotions come out

Realize that caregiving is a tough job, and most care recipients understand that as well. When you provide care for someone else, you WILL feel frustrated, angry, sad, overwhelmed, and many more negative feelings, and also some positive feelings. We have a tendency to try to keep these negative feelings inside, so we don’t upset our care recipients. It’s true we don’t want to upset them, but even though you try not to let it show, it will. When you realize a negative feeling is coming on, I recommend that you go someplace out of earshot to let out your feelings. I even apologized in advance to one of my care recipients, because I knew that I may, let’s say, be less than amiable at some point. You need to get it out of your system in some way. Sometimes just talking with another family member or a friend helps. There are also support groups for caregivers that really understand what you’re going through.

4. Get help

No one can, or should take on the role of caregiver alone. We all have full lives, and this role will add to a potentially already full schedule of activities for ourselves. Because of this fact, we need help to fulfill our role of caregiver, not only for us but also for the care recipient. The type of help you need will depend on the level of care required by the care recipient. Determine the times in the day or night when you need the most help. If you have other family members that can help, that’s great, if not, there are respite care services available.

Hopsice Program

Your doctor has likely dealt with most of the programs surrounding your hospital. Ask for his opinion on the matter. If a member of his or her family were to need hospice care, where would he send them? What criteria does he base that decision on? Does he have a personal connection with that facility that influences his decision? Have previous patients complained to him about any specific programs? Your doctor is a valuable resource for information, so use it to the fullest extent.

How does the program communicate with the hospital?
Are the workers and volunteers up to speed on your loved one’s condition, or will you need to provide a copy of the medical records yourself? Will they be sending updates to your doctor? Make sure that the service you are entrusting with the last days of someone’s life is playing an active role in their treatment plan.

How are services provided after hours?
How many staff are available at night? Who will be available to administer treatments after hours? How many after hours staff are volunteers? How thoroughly have the volunteers been trained on your loved one’s treatment program?

What services are provided?
Obviously food and lodging must meet your standards, but what other services does the program offer? What entertainment will be available for your loved one on their good days? Is childcare provided for family members coming for an extended visit? What kind of grief counseling is available? With which long-term care facilities do they work? These questions are critical when choosing a program with an indeterminate length of stay.

What is the hospice program’s mission, or goal, for your loved one?
This question may seem superfluous, but it is critical to understanding the vision behind the program’s treatment plan. Do they have a clear idea of what they hope to provide not only to the patient, but also to the family and friends who will be leaning on this program to provide for their loved one in their greatest moment of need. Make sure that the mission statement of the program matches up with what you desire for your loved one in their final days.
