I consulted my phyto-medicine book for remedies for coughing/upper respiratory issues and put the following together:

This is for one mug of brew:

1 tsp licorice root
1 tsp anise seeds (crushed)
1 tsp fennel (crushed)
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp cardamom (crushed)

Heat up ingredients in water to boiling point, let it steep for 15 minutes then strain and drink.

This doesn't need any sweetener as the licorice root is plenty sweet.

Also interesting to notice is the majority of the ingredients also have powerful anti-fungal properties. This helped me out quite a bit when I had upper respiratory problems. I found after straining the first round, the remains were good enough for at least another round, you may want it to steep a little longer though.

Have a cup 3 times a day.

Aww sweetness patpat.gif Good morning hug.gif So you're still suffering from that cold sad2.gif A nasty cough can stay with you for a long time. When I had a cold my chest was so tight I couldn't cough anything up at all, just made me almost vomit and piss my pants. This brew got me all sorted out in a few days thank goodness, I was worried it would turn into something worse so I had to try something.

I feel for you. Coughing causes me great pain. Every time I cough it feels like I am being stabbed in the side of my head. Not just this time around. Always...

A couple of years back Octo, myself and AS caught a similar bug, can't imagine how that happened it's not like we were passing doobie.gif or anything chuckle.gif
My point was, that's one of the strangest nastiest cold (almost flu) experiences I've ever had. Some things you never forget, and that's unfortunately on my list. Sickness can be a mind bender just due to the physical stress.
