Coughs are caused mainly by the body's attempt to rid itself of excess
toxic mucus through the lungs and bronchial tubes; the toxins irritate
tender lining of throat, causing the throat to 'cough it up'.
Pineapple: fresh ripe pineapple is rich in bromelin, a proteolytic
(protein-digesting) enzyme; bromelin literally 'digests' dead and diseased
cells and foreign microbes in the throat; cut pineapple into cubes, chew
well,and let juice dribble down throat, but spit out the pulp; or gargle
with the freshly extracted juice of ripe pineapple, and spit it out.
Persimmons: raw, very ripe persimmons soothe sore throats and contain
enzymes that break down damaged cells and foreign microbes.
Horseradish and lemon juice: for coughs and accompanied by heavy mucus
congestion in lungs and sinuses; same usage as for asthma.
Whole lemon puree: same as for colds.
Other beneficial foods: grapefruit and orange juice; raw tomatoes; raw
garlic; carrot and radish juice (as for asthma).
Foods to avoid: pasteurized milk and all dairy products; refined starch,
especially white flour; cooked meats; cooked eggs.
