A spoonful of sugar …

Hopefully, most of you have been spared from the nasty spring viruses that have been circulating Denver.  For those of you the haven’t been so lucky I wanted to share a safe and effective home remedy for coughing – honey!

A study comparing 2 teaspoons of  honey to children’s cough syrups containing dextromethorphan found  honey to be more effective.  This is great news considering dextromethorphan can cause life-threatening side effects in kids under 4.

Consider using local honey and you might gain some additional protection against seasonal allergies.

I have tried this remedy on myself, my partner and my new puppy and it was effective for everyone :)

In Health,

Dr. Caitlin
