7 Ways to Calm a Cough Your Pediatrician

Every cold and flu season many children come down with a head cold that results in a
cough. Coughing can be uncomfortable and downright irritating if it’s strong and
persistent or keeping everyone up at night. It may be annoying, but it is the body’s way of
trying to expel all the bugs that make us sick and clear out phlegm that clogs our
breathing tract. Hearing your child cough night after night can be enough to tempt you
to give them over-the-counter cough medicine.
I’m not going to sugar coat this: Over-the-counter cough syrup doesn’t work for children. In
fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) does not recommend the use of cough
medicine at all in children under age 6 because they don’t work and are unsafe (1). Most
cough and cold medicines contain dextromethorphan (DXM) which can be harmful and
even fatal in about 5% – 10% of children who can’t properly metabolize it.(2) Don’t take
my word for it, here is what the AAP has to say on over-the-counter cough & cold
medicines for kids:

…research has shown these products [over-the-counter cough and cold
medicine] offer little benefit to young children – and can have potentially serious
side effects. Many cough and cold products for children have more than one
ingredient, increasing the chance of accidental overdose if combined with
another product (3).
Even though children’s cough medicine doesn’t work it’s still on drug store shelves today!
(I’ll refrain from inserting some snide, but funny, comment here). Rather than take these
ineffective and unsafe products off the market, drug companies have relabeled them
with a warning that they shouldn’t be used in children under 4. You may not easily find
this warning since the front of the box usually says, “Children’s Cough Medicine,” meaning
most people are going to assume it is safe for their kids. Unless you turn the box over and
check the dosage information you may not realize it.
As if to prove my point, while I was taking pictures of the cough medicine at the drugstore
for this post, a mom and her three children (all clearly under the age of 4) came down
the cough and cold aisle and the mom quickly grabbed a box of children’s multi-
symptom cough and cold medicine and plopped it into her cart.

Stop a Cough Naturally
If medicine doesn’t work what else can parents do to help treat a child’s cough beyond
rest, fluids, humidifier and cough drops? Here are seven natural ways calm a cough your
pediatrician won’t tell you about.
1. Pediatric Tuina Massage for Cough
Whether your child has a wet, dry, hacking or croupy cough these massage techniques
work by stimulating the body to heal itself while simultaneously treating the cough. Please
see my post Treating Cough with Pediatric Tuina Massage for instructions on how to do this
massage on your child. I also have a video so you can see how to do it. Kids love it, it feels
great and it makes them feel better. The best part is it’s safe, effective and can be used at
any age.
2. Honey & Lemons
Ok, you’re pediatrician might tell you about honey because it is officially recommended
by the AAP for cough, but you don’t want any ordinary highly processed honey bear.
What really works is raw, dark amber honey. Buckwheat honey has received the most
research for cough, but you can use any dark amber raw honey like avocado or
blackberry. Local dark honey is great, too. I use local raw Uvas Gold Apiary Honey for
coughs in the winter and allergies in the spring.
Honey Dosage for Cough
For children ages 2 to 5 years use 1/2 teaspoon, children between 6 – 12 use 1 teaspoon
and children 12 year and older use 2 teaspoons. It can be given 2 – 4 times daily as

needed for cough. CAUTION: For children 12 months or younger do not give them honey.
Lemon and Honey tea is a great way to soothe a sore throat and calm a cough. Honey
helps to break up mucous and the astringent nature of lemon juice does the same thing
while also providing vitamin C. Here is a recipe from NourishingJoy.com for a Homemade
Cough Syrup . NourishingJoy.com also recommends an easy-to-make cough syrup using a
ratio of 1 TBS honey & 1 tsp lemon juice.
TIP: Don’t buy honey cough syrups from the drug store. They may contain honey and herbs
but most also have preservatives and “natural flavor” which is food industry code for “a long
list of chemicals we aren’t required by law to reveal on the label.” Honey is yummy and it
shouldn’t require natural flavors to be palatable!
Eliminate Dairy
Why give up dairy? It creates or adds to mucous production. Even if your child can
normally tolerate dairy, take it out of their diet while they’re sick, especially if they have a
wet phlegmy cough. It will lessen the phlegm and the burden of getting rid of it through
coughing.
Herbal Tea
Herbs like licorice root, mullein, sage leaves, wild cherry bark and slippery elm can be
made into a tea with a little honey to calm a cough. If you’re in a rush or you don’t have
these herbs on hand you should be able to pick up a tea called Just for Kids Throat Coat
by Traditional Medicinals. Throat Coat has many of the herbs recommended above and
it’s formulated with kid’s safety and tastes in mind. It’s usually available in grocery stores
and it has a very pleasant taste for a medicinal tea. It’s not only good for cough but
works for sore throats too.
Essential Oil Chest Rub
Essential oils can help break up chest and nasal congestion when used in a chest rub. But
if you’re like me you don’t want to use petrochemicals, like those contained in Vick’s
Vapor Rub. Instead you can mix a drop each of eucalyptus, peppermint and sage
essential oils in about 2 TBS of organic olive oil and make your own herbal oil. If you prefer
a salve, then try this recipe from NourishingJoy.com for a “vapor rub” or you can pick
Gaia’s Warming Vaporous Rub, a safe pre-made chest rub, available at your local health
food store.
Essential Oil Steam Bath
A warm steamy bath can also help a nighttime cough. Start a hot bath using the shower,
close the bathroom door and let the room get steamy. Add a few drops of eucalyptus or
sage into the tub to soothe a cough and open up the chest.
Organic Poached Pears with Cinnamon
This is a personal favorite for dry, tickley coughs. Eat 1/2 to 1 pear before bed. It is so
delicious and it feels great on a dry, scratchy throat.
Directions:
1. Wash & core pears
2. Halve pears lengthwise
3. Sprinkle flesh with cinnamon and put a cinnamon stick in the core.
4. Put in a pyrex glass baking dish with the fleshy part + cinnamon stick down
5. Add about 1/2” water to the pan
Bake at 350 until the pears are soft and the skins are easy to pull off (20-30 min). Will store
in the fridge for 3 – 4 days.
Recommendations from other Doctor Moms
Here are more suggestions on how to treat cough, colds and flus naturally from moms on
the front lines.
For older children where cough drops do not pose a risk of choking, here are a couple
recipes for homemade cough drops from NourishingJoy.com. and sore throat
drops from DIYNaturals.com

DIYNaturals.com offers a deliciously simple recipe for herbal tea to treat colds and flus.
OhLardy.com recommends this “vapor-rub” salve applied to the feet at night to stop
nighttime cough in it’s tracks. I’ve only heard of this recently and haven’t tried it
myself, but from what I can tell, crazy as it might seem, parents say really works. Next
time my kids have a nighttime cough I’m going to try it.
Need more ideas? How about a anti-viral cinnamon-honey elixir or a recipe for
honey-lemon-ginger tea. You’ll find a round up of natural cold and flu remedies at the
end of this post from the bloggers at Village Green Network.
Common Sense Caution
If you have questions or concerns about your child’s cough you should contact a
medical doctor or qualified health care provider like an acupuncturist or naturopathist
specializing in pediatrics.
RED FLAG: Coughing may be due to another more serious illness. If a cough comes on
suddenly with high fever, restlessness, difficulty breathing, wheezing, lethargy, chest tightness
and/or difficulty swallowing your child may need immediate medical attention.
If a lingering cough is associated with wheezing, chest tightness, difficulty breathing it may
be a sign of asthma.
Rarely, but sometimes, a chronic cough may be caused by tuberculosis.

Thanks. Some great advice. Another thing you may want to highlight is
Propolis spray for sore throats.
My mom would also make a “salad” that had red onions, lemon, salt, and garlic. You
can eat the salad or drink a shot glass of the juice from the salad with honey for flus,
colds and coughs.

My 4 kids all have asthma, sometimes the honey helps and sometimes it
doesn’t. I have tried all these methods and there are still some coughs I can’t get them
to kick without albuterol… Do you have any suggestions specifically for asthmatic kids?
I hate giving my kids steroids
REPLY
Robin Green says:
February 2, 2013 at 4:26 am
Melissa,
I totally understand not wanting to use steroids for you kids cough. The only general
advice I can give for a persistent asthma cough is to avoid processed foods,
artificial colors and flavors as they can contribute to inflammation (an underlying
process in asthma). I have had a lot of success treating persistent lingering coughs in
asthmatic kids with acupuncture (both needle and non-needle techniques) and
herbs. There are some fantastic herbal formulas that can help safely and effectively
open the air ways, but you would need an acupuncturist to prescribe them.
Acupuncture can helps stimulate the body to heal itself. For more info on how
acupuncture can help asthma, check out my guest blog post on

Last year my 16yo daughter caught a bug that turned into seven months of
coughing! She is fit, strong and eats incredibly well, from bone broths, home grown
eggs, wild caught salmon by the bucket load, pastured butter and coconut oil to
minimal sugar, gluten and so on…
At first she was just given a Rx for cough syrup, which did nothing, then the strong stuff
cough syrup which did barely more than nothing. By this time six weeks or so had gone

by and my husband was getting irritated and wanted antibiotics so I asked for them,
for all four kids, they all had it. We got our Zpacs, which did nothing. So I went back to
my favorite health care provider (DNP) who is an hour away. She muscle tested my
daughter and came up with a positive for mycoplasma. Prescribed a longer course of
azythromycin, to no avail. Second attempt was Cipro, for another long round. Nada.
Then she said o.k., no more antibiotics (this is why she’s my favorite, and BTW, she has
never prescribed antibiotics for myself or my children before, this was a special case.)
Then she said sports induced asthma and put my daughter on a couple inhalers, one
of which was steroid but only for one month, to see if we could at least achieve a little
healing in the lungs. Still not much results. Meanwhile I had been trying everything in
my mama arsenal: loads of broth, vitamin C, nettles, garlic on the soles of her feet,
colloidal silver, NAC… you name it, we probably tried it. Still, not so much for healing.
Finally our DNP recommended accupuncture and referred us to a friend who lived in
our neck of the woods. After one treatment my daughter slept through the night for the
first time in months. Three more and we stopped, because she seemed to be doing
much better, no symptoms and money, among other things was running low!

Oh my goodness, Beth! What an amazing story. It’s a real testament to
how acupuncture can stimulate the body to heal itself. In my practice I’ve had a
couple cases similar to your daughter’s and it’s amazing how just a few teeny tiny
needles can make such a big difference. Thanks so much for sharing!

Beth Aiken says:
February 6, 2013 at 8:44 pm
Robin,
I had more to the story which I tried to post as a reply but for some reason it just
disappears into cyberspace.
Bottom line is I came across some information, in my never ending search for
complete healing for my daughter, which said that the herb mullein is THE herb
for lungs and milk is THE food for lungs. I am using it now: a strong mullein infusion
mixed in equal parts with milk (in our case it is raw milk), heated to the point of
steam around edges of pot and sweetened with honey.
I am interested in the origin of the milk causes mucus theory and if, in fact, you
have experience that would prove it to be true.
REPLY
Robin Green says:
February 7, 2013 at 4:09 am
Beth,
That’s very interesting about the mullein and milk. In TCM herbology, certain
herbs will have specific actions on the organ systems. Mullein certainly
connects and affects the lungs. With regard to milk, the whole mucus issues
relates to 1) drinking pasteurized milk which is devoid of the enzymes that
help the body digest it and 2) in TCM, rich foods tend to create dampness,
i.e. phlegm, in a person who is vulnerable to dampness (like someone with a
wet cough). I have seen many children in my practice where eliminating
dairy allows the body to heal from coughs and chronic low immunity. In some
cases, reintroduction of raw dairy later doesn’t cause the child to be
symptomatic.

We have been drinking raw milk since before she was born. I
was surprised that she gave it up but figured maybe it was her body
saying, no thanks, don’t need that right now. Just as surprised to see her
slugging it down happily now. Kids. Ya just never know what they’re going
to do. But I AM happy to see her back on this raw milk, especially if it helps
her lungs to repair themselves. So far she definitely has a more vibrant glow
about her… nice to have some hope. It was dreary there for a stretch.
Thanks for getting back to me and explaining TCM. I had a hunch about
your first point, that it was pasteurized milk rather than live milk.

I love all of these natural remedies for coughs! Herbal teas and honey are my
two favorites to use myself whenever I get a cold or cough (although I’ve found that
since I’ve started eating a real-food diet I get far fewer colds and that they hardly ever
come with the nasy lingering cough like I used to get when I was a kid!) Those
poached pears with cinnamon sound absolutely delicious too

While going through your website, it was such a relief to know that there are
so many parents who believe in home remedies. Honey Lemon syrup remedy is quite
handy, I am going to try this out today itself for my son.
My son has started going to creche since past 4 months and since then i have
observed that he is getting cold and severe cough ( which develops into phlegm )
every month. Doc told me he is prone to bronchilitus thats the reason he is getting
infected so frequently, but i cant see him taking those buckets full of medicines and
nebulizer any more. If you have any other suggestions please let me know it will be
great help ! By the time am trying all possible solutions available in my kitchen which
might soothe his coughing.

Hi Deepika,
Home remedies are a great start. If you think your son needs more support I would

will be customized for his specific situation. Let me know how the honey-lemon-
ginger syrup works! My kids LOVE it!
