Combine grated ginger, onion, garlic, lemon juice, and honey. Here’s how to prepare it

The flu, a common viral illness, manifests with various health symptoms and is typically treated with remedies and syrups readily available in pharmacies. While pharmacies offer a wide range of products aimed at alleviating symptoms like mucus and chest congestion, we’d like to introduce a simple natural alternative to address these issues. If you’re interested, please continue reading.

Here are home remedies for managing mucus and phlegm in the chest:


  • 1 tablespoon of black pepper.
  • 1 tablespoon of honey.
  • 2 tablespoons of grated ginger.
  • 3 cups of water.

Preparation and Usage:

  1. Begin by pouring the water into a small pot and placing it on medium heat. Once it reaches a boil, add the ginger and black pepper.
  2. Boil this mixture for 3 minutes, then let it cool until it reaches a comfortable temperature.
  3. Add honey to taste to sweeten the mixture.
  4. Consume this drink as needed.

Recommended Usage:

  • Ideally, aim to drink 3 to 4 cups of this solution daily to help relieve congestion and cough. However, for milder symptoms, one cup on an empty stomach may suffice to alleviate mucus-related issues.

Additionally, for addressing colds and flu, we have a potent natural remedy:


  • Freshly chopped or crushed garlic.
  • Freshly chopped onion.
  • Grated fresh ginger root.
  • Grated fresh horseradish.
  • Fresh cayenne pepper (seeded), thinly sliced or chopped.

Preparation and Usage:

  1. Combine all these ingredients in a blender and blend until you achieve a smooth, lump-free mixture.
  2. Transfer this blend into an airtight glass jar and store it for two weeks. During this period, gently shake the jar once a day (1 jar per day).
  3. After the two-week period, strain the mixture, retaining only the liquid.
