Healing your cough
Apart from taking cough medication from the pharmacy or you are on a dosage of antibiotics prescribed by the doctor, how else do you take care of that cough? 
Hot Chicken soup
Chicken soup is a traditional remedy for cold and coughs. Include onions, sweet potato, carrots, celery and parsley in it. Researchers at the University of Nebraska found that it acts as an anti-inflammatory, and speeds up the discharge of mucus to ease the symptoms of coughs and colds. 
Menthol/essential oils
Essential oils containing menthol and eucalyptus:  Menthol works as a mild anaesthetic and is used to relieve sore throats. Menthol gives a cool sensation to the mouth and throat giving it relief from nasal congestion. It also relieves the symptoms of sore throats and coughs by a local anaesthetic action. It may also help to inhibit infection of the airway.
Duck liver
Oscillococcinum is a medicine made from the heart and liver of the duck effective in treating flu symptoms and cough. 

Chocolate
Theobromine, an ingredient in dark chocolate,  suppresses vagus nerve activity involved in causing coughing. It currently has no kniwn side effects, unless of course, you take it in large quantities affecting your healthy weight management. 

Hot Water Steam 


Do the head-over-a-bowl-approach (just like you do your home facial), or by adding moisture to air with a steam vaporiser or cool-mist humidifier. Inhalations with steam help. It makes the secretions looser and easier to cough up.
How to do the head-over-a-bowl-approach:
1. Boil some water,
2. Pour it into a basin, 
3. Drape a towel over your head, 
4. Inhale the steam for four or five minutes, several times a day.
5. Drink frequent hot drinks.

Rest and Sleep
Rest and sleep is a must as it helps in the recovery process. Recommended 8 hours of shut eye.

Yours always in good health and happiness,

Dee Dee

The Truth about Norwegian Salmon

I was asked the other day - how safe is Norwegian salmon for consumption?  Farmed salmon  against wild salmon? The Truth About Norwegian Farm-Raised Salmon
Here's the facts about farm-raised salmon. Do you know that Norway is the second-largest exporter of seafood? Thus it is not only extremely important  for Norway to  safeguard its environment and fish stocks for its economy - the future and sustainability - it is their priority.  The Norwegian aquaculture industry has set the standard for high-quality and safe farmed salmon.
Looking at the quality of the fish stock of Norwegian Salmon: First year of their life, norwegian salmon spends in the safety of a hatchery tank on land until they are large and strong enough for life at sea.  Maximum freedom to grow and no overcrowding -Checked! The salmon are thereafter carefully transferred to spacious, protected ocean pens that allow maximum freedom for growth. The Norwegian law requires that salmon make up less than 2.5% of an aquacultur…
