Good day to all. It is winter time in our part of the world. It is very common to get cough and cold. Years back, I used to get cough in winter time and it lasts for three months even if taking much medicines. It is an old story and now I am happy to say 'Cough' never disturbs me that way. Now any one in my home got cough then I am treating it my own natural way. Indian gooseberry juice with a pinch of turmeric powder in early morning, in empty stomach will heal the cough within a week. Yes, it may take one week to get relief but it won't come back for long time. A word of caution, - 1. People have acidity problem, is not recommended to take the same in empty stomach. 2. Those who are taking medicine for diabetics also take bit extra care, Gooseberry can reduce blood sugar so people who are taking medicines may be affected badly. Nature is always wonderful and natural things won't give quick relief, but slowly and steadily. Wishing you all good health and happiness.

Amla is available here in the US in powder or pill form. I wonder if the benefits are equal to fresh berries or juice? If I get a scratchy throat or a cough, I use mentholatum on my neck and chest and drink hot lemons with honey. If the cough is bad, I'll stop smoking for a few days lol.

The powder form is also very effective. It is well known for it Vitamin C content. The specialty is amala does not lost the vitamin C content even after cooking the same.

@Sreekala I saw that. The vitamin C is high and WebMD states that it is effective in lowering risk for many diseases and illness. I will pick some up next time I go out. I haven't seen any of the gooseberries in the stores around here so they may not be an option.

When in Chennai I once had the gooseberry juice and it gave me a chronic dry cough problem.... Went for whole 3 months Before that I had never had any issue with it. Nor did later, when I changed the city.

That's a powerful remedy and a well tested one. I use amla a lot when in season. And it's good for diabetes too. It will not only keep the cold and cough away, but will keep you healthy and stronger in all other ways too.

@Sreekala Yes, it's the season and it's reasonable right now. We get it throughout the year in Bangalore but then rate increases after March.

You can experiment for one week. Amla is good for health so there is nothing bad to test. For allergic cough, I heard, dry ginger powder with ghee is good.
