Coughs: An Ayurvedic remedy that actually works

Looking for a cough remedy that might actually work? While we're told that none of the over-the-counter concoctions are worth the money, one top doctor is using an Ayurvedic treatment that seems to be doing the business.

The remedy, Andrographis paniculata, is being used by Saul Berkovitz, consultant physician at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital. Not only does it work for the patients for whom he prescribes it, it is also supported by a study that involved 896 patients.

As Berkovitz points out, it's a successful remedy that other doctors should be advocating, especially at a time when we are over-using antibiotics. He says: "It is far too bitter to be used as a syrup, and it must instad by taken as a capsule or tablet. It doesn't work by soothing coughs directly, but it seems to boost immune function."
