While it is recommended that you see a physician for your throat problems, there are certain naturally soothing ingredients that could also help alongside your prescription medications.

Types of coughs and their treatments
Coughing may occur in normal situations at a rate of once or twice an hour to clear any foreign bodies from the respiratory tract, such as dust or pollen, but sometimes coughing can occur for a number of reasons, and infection from respiratory diseases may be the most important. Coughing may occur more or less forcefully depending on the individual. Coughs can be divided into two types according to their characteristics:
- Moist cough: This is a cough that produces secretions and mucus, and can be abundant or regular depending on the cause of its appearance. It can occur when there is a common cold or flu. The secretions are nasal and also produce postnasal drip. It can be found in different parts of the respiratory system.
- Dry Cough: Cough without secretions that usually occurs mainly in the throat, there is a tickling sensation due to irritation. It is also caused by respiratory infections, and there are different ways to treat it.

There are many natural ingredients that have been shown to have a good effect on different types of coughs, which have become an excellent aid to soothe the symptoms. Among these natural remedies is the use of honey as a natural alternative to soothe persistent coughs. Ginger is one of the great heroes for fighting coughs naturally. Thyme leaves combined with ivy leaves can soothe coughs.
Nature has blessed us with potent ingredients that can be used to soothe symptoms like cough, mucus, nasal obstruction, and sore throat, among other things. Here are some of the most effective ones:

It is of a waxy nature and has antimicrobial properties which can be especially helpful in treating symptoms of flu and the common cold.
