UK Guidelines Recommend Honey for Cough – Dr Mercola

UK Guidelines Recommend Honey for Cough – Dr Mercola

With the goal of reducing inappropriate antibiotic use by half by 2021, the U.K. Department of Health has proposed new guidelines recommending the use of honey as a first line of treatment for coughs
Antibiotics do little to improve colds and flu or symptoms like coughs and sore throat because they are not designed to treat viral infections, which typically run their course within a week or two
The antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of honey are well-known, making honey a great alternative to prescription drugs when treating coughs
I highly recommend Manuka honey, which has a long history of use as a treatment for bacterial infections and wounds, making it a beneficial natural health remedy
