Homemade Pineapple Syrup For Sore Throat and Coughs 

Since I took herbology classes which I love! I love learning to me new things but actually this form of natural medicine has been around for thousands of years. 
My teacher is a Board Certified Naturopath DN

She is very interesting 
I  feel blessed to have her as a teacher and grateful I found this class. 

I enjoy her classes and could listen to her for hours. 

But she not only teaches she inspired me , and I’m sure others as well. 
I now read every label , 
I make so many of my own tinctures and pain rubs. And it saves money.
I am more mindful of what I put in my body. 


So I made my own sore throat / cough medicine. I take this during allergy season. 
The deal is that pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain, which is a natural anti-inflammatory, and it’s been proven to help control coughing and mucus. 
 I mixed it with ginger, another natural anti-inflammatory, honey, a throat soother, warming chili pepper, and astringent lemon to make a potent but delicious cough remedy.   

At the first sign of a tickle in my throat, I mix up a batch and keep it in the fridge.  Take it as often as needed; it will give you a nutrition boost with each dose!  It’s easy to mix up in a blender, and it will keep in the fridge for at least a week or more.

* 2 thick slices of fresh pineapple, peel removed, but core intact (about two good cups)

* 1 Tbsp honey

* 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 

* a thumb sized piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced or rough chopped

* juice of 1 lemon 🍋 Instructions 

1. Give the pineapple a rough chop, including the core, which is not only edible but particularly healthy.

2. Blend everything up in a blender or food processor until smooth.

3. Use as is, or push the mixture through a mesh strainer to get a smoother syrup.

4. I Keep in the refrigerator and I take as needed.
* DO NOT EVER give anything with honey to children under 2 years old. 

* If you have a persistent cough, seek medical attention.

* This is not medical advice just information on things I’ve learned and tried for myself based on herbology classes.
