I have found that using 1 g of turmeric with raw honey and warm milk is an effective cough suppressant. Unfortunately, with me, turmeric also causes rapid and extreme nasal congestion. Is there something within Ayurveda, which I can add to turmeric, which will nullify or reverse the nasal congestive property of the salicylates in turmeric? I am one week into the most extreme upper respiratory viral infection in 62 years and the coughing is terrible. I have not been able to sleep in our bed for a week now (I have to sleep sitting up) and I am getting quite desperate. Western medicine is helpless. Thank you.
