When you are looking up to Mother Nature to treat and cure a disease or disorder, you are not the first one to do so. This has been tried out by our ancestors who did not have any of the modern facilities like the ones we have in the contemporary world.
Human history is replete with stories of all kinds of breakouts of deadly diseases, and it is quite surprising how mankind survived them without the modern advancements. There is the incident of The Black Death that was common in Europe between 1346 and 1353.
Contemporary society relied on the anti-microbial properties of thyme to keep away from the disease. Thyme can be used to deliver relief from the discomforts of cough too. Thyme is known to sooth the trachea and bronchi. It opens up congested and blocked passages.
All you need to get started is a bit of thyme and some fresh water. To begin with, crush the thyme and place the crushed thyme in a clean mug. Fill it with water and let it be for about 10-15 minutes.
You can boost the flavor of this mixture by adding drops of honey or lemon-juice. Drink the mixture 2-3 times everyday, particularly before you sleep.
The miracle produced by thyme is attributed to chemicals present in thyme that treat infections caused by bacteria or fungus. It is widely used to treat and alleviate a lot of irritations. It is also found to be effective in relieving a lot of muscle spasms like those occurring while dealing with a cough.
