The Cough Complex is a combination of homoeopathic remedies used traditionally for the symptoms associated with uncomplicated coughs which are the result of a cold or flu. The complex includes the following remedies: Belladonna 6c, Drosera 6c, Ipecac 6c, Kali Carb 6c, Phosphorous 6c, Pulsatilla 6c, Spongia 6c.
This remedy can be repeated a few times daily and may need to be continued for a week or so before the cough is fully resolved.
If there is no change after a couple of days then consult your homoeopathic home prescribing book to select a more suitable remedy.
If coughs become harsh and uncomfortable it is often a good idea to use a natural herbal cough medicine along with the remedies to soothe irritation and/or aid in expectoration. A warm drink of lemon, honey and garlic can soothe troublesome coughs.
As a complement to your remedies the herbal complex Echinacea with Vitamins A,C,E and Zinc is an excellent immune stimulant. For children it is better to use a Children’s Multi-Vitamin and Echinacea Herbal Liquid. Increasing the uptake of Vitamin C will accelerate the process and help with resolution. Should you have problems with persistent cough or sinus congestion there are other homoeopathic remedies to address these specific areas.
Always read the label. Homoeopathic principles should be applied when using this remedy. If symptoms persist consult your health care practitioner promptly.
