(NaturalNews) Every year millions of us will come down with troublesome coughs. Sometimes those coughs can linger on and on and often the irritation and tickling of coughs may keep us up at night. The next time you have a cough, instead of reaching for potentially dangerous over the counter cough medicines, try some of the following safe and effective natural and home remedies.

*For deep coughs, nebulize with superior colloidal or ionic silver and lobelia (five parts colloidal silver to one part lobelia) as well as take colloidal silver internally. You can make the nebulizer combination even more effective by adding one part mullein extract.

*Mullein is a very useful herb for coughing. It can be taken internally as well as nebulized in extract form.

*Use neti pots. Many people have found relief from coughs by using saline solution in neti pots.

*Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra) may be best known as a candy, but as a tea it can lick a lingering cough. Steep a licorice root tea bag or one teaspoon of the loose dried root in one cup boiling hot water for five minutes, and drink up to three mugs of it throughout the day. Your cough should improve right away, but you can continue to drink three cups a day for up to three days. Licorice can raise your blood pressure, so don't drink it if you have hypertension or diabetes.

*Make your own wild cherry cough syrup and decongestant. Cover the bottom of a crock pot with wild cherry bark and add enough honey to cover the bark. Set the crock pot at the lowest setting; then, cover and let the mixture cook for two days, stirring occasionally. After two days, strain the mixture and use the syrup as a cough syrup and/or decongestant.

*Boil Thyme leaves and make thyme Tea. This will help stop the cough from tickling you and from waking you up.

*Try this almond paste remedy: Soak almonds overnight. Remove their skin. Make a paste of the almonds with a bit of butter and sugar (organic unrefined sugar is best). This remedy can be especially useful for a dry cough.

*Make a hot tea with lemon and raspberry jam and then drink plentiful amounts of it throughout the day.

*Drink hot organic milk with honey at bedtime for nighttime cough relief.

*Herbal cough syrup made from yarrow extract can be very effective and can often be found at health and supplement outlets.

*An odd sounding home cough remedy is this one: Sprinkle sugar (organic unrefined is best) on one tablespoon of butter and eat it. Sounds odd, but many report it usually does the trick.

*Though perhaps not completely "natural", the combination of alcohol spirits, lemon and honey often works well for eliminating and relieving coughs. Mix four ounces of honey (especially locally produced raw clover honey), four tablespoons of lemon juice and a shot glass of spirits. Take a tablespoon at a time as needed. As one person who was told of this remedy observed, "either my cough will either get better or I will cease to care about it!" (His cough got better)
