I was prone to whooping cough caused by allergy. An x-ray showed my lungs were clear; however oftentimes, I had sore throat followed by coughing. Prescribed medicines done nothing, it came back. My kids were worried because their sleeps were disturbed as well as mine.
They researched from the internet. My eldest daughter found out that the kind of cough I had was a symptom of heartburn and an apple a day was a remedy. My son found out too, a slow cooking rice milk was also a cure to my kind of cough. Leek was good to the lungs too.
So, one apple a day, plus one cup of rice milk every morning and a leek tied by handkerchief on my neck were a routine daily.
Amazing three, for two weeks my coughs were released and I was relieved now of that disturbing sickness.
