Remedy Description

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.
