HERBAL REMEDY FOR COUGH





One of my friend's wife had been coughing more than two years.  She had tried a lot of medication and cures but the cough did not go away.  She even had her chest X-rayed on the advice of her doctor.  The X-ray showed that the lungs were okay.

I asked my Sifu for advice and he recommended a herbal remedy for her cough.  He said that she needed to drink the herbal concoction for 3 times and she'd be okay.  Know what?  She only drank it once and became better. Last week, I heard from her hubby that she was not coughing any more. 

Here is the recipe.

Ingredients
1 winter melon (kundur)
a handful of dried longan
a handful of Snow fungus (Tremella fuciformis))
1 lo han ko (Arhat Fruit)

Method

  1. Wash the winter melon.
  2. Cut the top to make a lid.
  3. Scoop out the seeds from the winter melon.
  4. Add into the winter melon the lo han ko, the snow fungus and dried longan
  5. Add boiled water to the winter melon.
  6. Close the lid.
  7. Double boil for half an hour before drinking. 
**  You can add in one lump of rock sugar if you want it a bit sweet but this is optional.
