The magic works !

When everything else failed, I've tried on the boiled-orange again on YX. My 1st attempt was over here.

Yes. YX were still having cough after the Chinese medications. I have been thinking to bring him to see the handsome senseh again but after second thought, I dropped the idea. That few days, I've been thinking and thinking what should I do. Western? Chinese? Western? Chinese? Then, I resorted for my late aunt home remedy instead and was praying hard that YX will drink them.

This time, I used a different methods (the correct way my late aunt used to do it) and miraculously, the magic works !


1)
Previously : Honey
Now : Honey rock sugar. The purpose of this ingredient is to make the 'juice' sweet enough to swallow.


2)
Previously : I put everything into a slow cooker before I went to bed until the next morning.
Now : I doubled boiled them in a cooking pot for 4 hours (over slow fire).

Cover the mug with a small plate to avoid droplets of water from the steam added into the 'juice'.
3)
Previously : I told YX this is boiled orange juice
Now : I told YX this is his MEDICINE. As he is still having cough, he has to finish them no matter how.
4)
Previously : I pour in a mug and serves YX using a straw. He refused to drink.
Now : I use spoon to feed him. Just like feeding him medicines. He DRANK them without fuss !
.
I served YX this 'juice' 2 days consecutively and am very happy with the results. The taste of the 'juice' are BITTER! but he drank them just like drinking something tasty. Bravo to YX ! He has since stop coughing ! YAY !!! ............... and yes...I found my answer :D

  1. Glad to know that YX has recovered from the persistent cough. I was also very prone to cough when I was small so my mom would double boil a whole orange with rock sugar and made me drink and eat the whole orange! Though bitter, it actually worked.

  3. Lots of mucus or not? Looks like the drink is cooling. The Chinese would say he had a heaty cough...and that would help. If he had a cold cough, that would make it worse...

  33. Great sharing.
    I wonder if the medicine is for adults, is that means we can omit the rock sugar?
    Thanks!

    Recently I have got an email about using oranges to cure coughing too.
    They actually grill the orange.
    If you wish to have the email, I would be happy to share with you. Just drop me a msg at joanne_tiew@yahoo.com
