A spoonful of honey?

You may have seen the recent story in The New York Times’ Well Blog about honey as a cough remedy. Stuck in the midst of a rather stubborn URI with coughing fits, I thought the timing couldn’t have been better! After trying every OTC cough and cold remedy on the market, I read the article and promptly reached for the honey bear, squeezed out a big spoonful and hoped for the best. And kept coughing. At least it tastes better than cough syrup.

  1. Yep. My dad always made cough syrup for us by heating together equal parts of honey and lemon juice. It never seemed to work for me, so I felt vindicated when that article came out.
