Lemon helps loosen mucus for easy elimination. In addition, the high vitamin C content improves the body’s resistance to infections.
- Squeeze the juice of ½ lemon into a cup of warm water. Add raw honey for taste. Drink this first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and a few times throughout the day to control the overproduction of mucus.
- You can also add lemon juice to your cup of black or green tea.
8. Apple Cider Vinegar
An alkalizing remedy like apple cider vinegar is another effective option. It will help thin the mucus, making its elimination easier. In addition, it boosts your immunity to fight infections.
- Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar and a little raw honey in a cup of warm water. Drink this tonic 2 times a day for a few days.
- You can also dilute raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with equal amounts of water, heat the solution until it steams and then inhale the steam. Do this a few times a day for a few days.
