Herbal Remedies For Cough

In my clinic, I use herbal remedies for cough that match the type of cough and symptoms my patient is showing.

These remedies are from Oriental medicine and are very effective for most of my patients.

To determine which type of herbal remedy is appropriate for you, we first decide whether your cough is a...

  • Acute, productive cough with yellowish phlegm
  • Chronic, productive cough with white or clear phlegm

Got that? O.K., if you have a...

Note - All remedies on this page are available at Chinese markets or from a variety of online vendors. Acu-market.com is a good resource. Typically, a bottle only lasts about 1 week so it's wise to purchase at least 4 at a time.

Avoid these (and in my opinion, all) herbal remedies during pregnancy.
