How To Stop Coughing At Night
Hello there. Welcome to Hero TV! Our hero for today is Cynthia Sumner, and she’s going to teach us how to stop coughing at night. You might find it strange that I’m talking about emotions with the subject of coughing.
But what I have found through my experience in my opinion is the root of all physical issues is an emotion so I have found for myself that when there’s a cough there’s there’s something that I’m holding in that needs to be moved out, that needs to be heard.
There’s something inside me that’s not being heard and sometimes it’s something for my our childhood that we felt suppressed or maybe it’s something we’re afraid to say as an adult but especially be aware of that if you have a child that is dealing with the cough.
There’s an emotion, there’s something inside of them that needs to be heard and you can calm it by spending time and listening asking a lot of questions, looking them in the eye, this is the root of healing a cough is the love. And being a listening ear and making creating a safe place for yourself to be heard or for your child to be heard or a friend or anybody that you’re listening to this video for to help with the cost.
So to make this garlic ointment it’s super simple and you want to use vaseline or another lotion or ointment that’s like that and you’ll probably be thinking why would you use vaseline it is not natural. I normally don’t use that. That’s a very clogging and natural a synthetic source but this is different because we want to use something that won’t absorb right into the foot. Something that can stay there for a long period of time and vaseline is the perfect way to hold the garlic that we’re going to put on it ,in it on your foot all night.
So that this is pretty much the only time that I use vaseline. So I’m going to use about three or four cloves of garlic and you want it crushed. And that just opens up the healing juices of the garlic and that’s it. You stir it up smells like a… restaurant in here.
And there’s your garlic ointment for your feet. So now, I’m going to explain to you how to apply the ointment on your feet. But first I want to share the steps to do before if you have time or you can just put it right on your feet. But I highly recommend getting into a hot bath and it’s good to do a pinch of cayenne or maybe some yarrow herb because that helps open up the skin, open up the chest, so that you can detox through your skin.
So sitting in a hot bath and then when you get out or if it’s for a child, get them dressed wet and they won’t like it. They probably will cry. And if it’s for yourself, it’s hard to get your pajamas on while you’re wet but your body needs that water and it will actually absorb right into your chest to help decongest. And this is very effective. This is when you would put on the ointment on the bottom of your feet so sit down make sure you have some socks handy and I also like to use some plastic wrap. So just a piece of plastic wrap on the bottom of your foot so that you can keep the ointment there instead of absorbing through your stockin into your bed sheets. But if you have some good thick socks, you can use that too if you want to use one hundred percent cotton socks and put a good amount probably this thick on the bottom of your foot and pull your sock over your foot and just standard those covers and that will help calm your system down.
So you’re not coughing through the night it also helps to go into your system and break up the congestion. So when you wake up, you’ll start coughing that you won’t cough for long because you’ll actually get out what your body is trying to get out.
Some steps that you can add to this that will just help you get better faster is to what I call onion on the chest and if this is something you’ve never heard before you’re going to be like huh? What?
Why would you do that? But let me tell you why and the healing agents in an onion is very effective.
So there’s a couple ways that you can do this. You can cut, just dice up an onion and put it on a plate and put it on your nightstand breathing the fumes breaks up congestion all through the night. You also can cut a slice of onion about a half inch thick and put it in some olive oil on the stove on low because you don’t want to, you don’t want to burn out those healing agents but you want to be sure to saute the onion on low and then you take it off the pan let it cool down and this is what you’ll use after you get off the bath, out of the bath and you’ve got your pajamas on.
You put the onion on your chest. So I use that plastic wrap that has a sticky side on one side and so you can do a big square over your chest to hold the onion on and then you want to put a tighter pajama top on to help hold it in place try and stay on your back to sleep through the night and having that on your chest is, it just goes deep down and breaks up what your body is trying to cough up and get out. And another thing that would be very helpful on your nightstand is to do a humidifier. You have that moisture going in and and it’s all working together to decongest and the faster you can get that out, the faster you can get better. There’s a really great recipe it’s super simple and super easy and super effective. And in contrast to the medicine at the store, there’s color die.Sometimes there sugar and it’s hard on your liver because it’s a process medication so you can use this as an alternative. it’s just raw honey and onions and the best way to do it is onion juice.
So you can grade it just on a fine that small grader and let the juice of the onion drip into a bowl. A little bowl of honey. Maybe like a fourth cup of honey or just grate the onion right into the honey. Stir it up and take a teaspoon or a tablespoon before going to bed. So you want to take a drink of water before so you don’t drink after the cough syrup so it can sit on your throat and stay there in your body. So your body can use it to help suppress a cough so you can sleep but you never want to suppress a cough through the day. Your body needs to be able to cop it out that’s what it does.
The reason why you’re coughing is to get out something the body doesn’t need that’s in there. So, but it is important to sleep so I can calm a cost to sleep and then you want to be able to get that congestion out the next day.
