Radish, in spite of its benefit, is a rather aggressive product for a children's stomach, which is contraindicated in infants. Honey in children at an early age can provoke an allergy, therefore, up to 3 years you need to wait with its introduction into the children's diet.

Basic recipe

According to this recipe, you need to make a pot from a vegetable. To do this, take a few small radishes, rinse them thoroughly. Drain the roots (they must be raw, juicy). Next, cut the bottom of the radish, so that it conveniently stood on a plate.

The top of the radish, too, cut off like a lid, do not throw it away. At the top of each root crop, make a groove so that the wall thickness remains about 1.5 cm. You can cut the pulp with a knife or spoon, or other convenient device. In each radish put honey in the amount of 1-2 tablespoons (the larger the root crop, the more honey can be placed in it).

Radishes should be covered with lids, then put them in a warm place.

The course of treatment - before the cessation of symptoms, but not more than 2 weeks. By reducing the dose to 3 spoons per day, you can heal longer - up to 3 weeks. This may be necessary for chronic forms of cough.

For children, radish with honey is prepared in the same way. For the first time, the baby is given a ½ tsp remedy to test the body’s reaction. If there are no allergic reactions, treatment is continued on a teaspoon 3-4 times a day until recovery. More than 7-10 days, radish therapy in children cannot be continued. About the treatment of child radish is written here.

Drug Storage Features

Since the juice in rare pots has been preparing for quite a long time, the question of its storage arises. Indeed, it will be more convenient to immediately prepare more medicines. It can be stored in the refrigerator without loss of valuable substances and basic properties. Within 12 hours it is allowed to drink the juice with honey, not putting in the cold, and later it is better to cool it.

The duration of storage of radish with honey is 2-3 days. For storage, the juice is placed in a clean, water-dried jar, covered with gauze, tied with string. You can also cover the jar with a loose lid. Juice should be stored on the shelf for vegetables in the refrigerator - the temperature is the most suitable for it. As you receive the drink should be heated, but not on the stove or in the microwave. You should pour a portion of the juice into a glass, place it in warm water, then take it as you warm it.

Why add honey

When honey is added, the active secretion of vegetable juice occurs, the root crop together with the liquid releases its healing substances, vitamins, and essential oils. Salt and sugar are similarly affected. Of course, salty rare juice will not appeal to even an adult, let alone children. But sugar can be mixed with the juice of the root, to treat cough in people with allergies to bee products.

Folk recipes

The classic recipe for black radish with cough honey is to fill the fruit with honey, and then use the extracted vegetable juice. To do this, select a ripe fruit of medium size, cut off the top and extract the pulp. The walls of the natural "vessel" should be 2-4 cm thick. Honey is half poured into the cavity, then the root vegetable is left overnight. Root crop should be put in a pan or bowl, it is possible the selection of juice from the bottom.

After 12 hours, the cough medicine from radish with honey is ready. One fruit can be used up to 3 times. So the black radish, when coughing, was cooked back in the old days, when there were no various devices for chopping vegetables. There are other simpler cooking recipes.

For the whole family

There are cases when the disease mows down all family members, then it takes a lot of radish with honey from a cold. Further we will tell how to prepare a medical mix in large quantities, without making special efforts. Take mature roots with a total weight of about 1 kg, wash thoroughly of sand and earth, peel the skin. Small fruits with thin skin can not be peeled.

Next, rub the root vegetable on a grater, put it in a jar, pan or other food container, add 200 g of bee nectar there. Be sure to mix well to distribute the honey throughout the mass. Now cover the medicine with a cap and leave for 10–12 hours. During this time, the vegetable will give the juice, which is mixed with nectar.

There is an even faster way to cook black or green radish with cough honey. When you need to start therapy urgently, you can simply rub the fruit and squeeze the flesh through gauze. Mix the resulting juice with bee nectar.

If possible, use a juicer, so the amount of juice obtained will be more. It is important to respect the proportions of 2 parts of juice and 1 part of bee nectar, store the obtained drug in the refrigerator for no more than 3 days.

For treating baby cough

It is important to visit a pediatrician before starting treatment, to pass the appropriate tests. The physician must make an accurate diagnosis, coordinate therapy with the national method. Often the folk method is used in conjunction with taking medication.

The dosage of the cough remedy is indicative, if the child drinks the drug with joy, it is better to give less, but more often (5 times 1 tsp), if taking the drug is hard, then reduce the amount of intake, while increasing the dosage (1 dec L. 3 times).

Treatment of cough in pregnant women

As you know, while carrying a child a woman should be extremely careful when taking various medications. Many of them can negatively affect the fetus in the womb. The question arises - what is radish juice for pregnant women, benefit or harm? The only contraindication to the use of folk medicine - the tone of the uterus, the threat of miscarriage.

In the case of well-being and favorable pregnancy, a vitamin root vegetable with bee nectar is a safe means.

List of contraindications

If you are allergic to bee products, that is, to pollen, use a product with milk and Borjomi.

For the treatment of dry cough, another recipe fits: grated radish is poured with sugar, placed in a tray with a lid and melted in the oven for 2 hours. The temperature should be 120 C. It will be necessary to be treated with the liquid that is heated. The dosage is indicated in chapter "1".

Pregnancy, also increased acidity

Radish of different varieties contains about the same healing substances. But they are contained in different quantities:

  1. The properties of black radish are such that the juice of this plant should not be eaten if the body is weakened. The same applies to pregnancy and the period of feeding.
  2. Green cough radish helps not worse than black, but its effect will be softer.

All methods that were given above, during pregnancy, you can apply. Only the dosage should be halved, and the radish should not be black, but green. White radish with honey has an even less pronounced effect than green.

Now - with regard to acidity, high and low. Conducted experience:

  1. If you drink warm tea with honey before a meal, the acidity in the stomach decreases,
  2. Well, if the mixture is cold, the acidity will certainly increase.

We have all the means taken before meals, as a rule, are stored in the refrigerator. And it means that they cannot be used at high acidity. That is, from a dry cough, radish with honey in this case will not help.

So we called another contraindication.

Any pop tablet taken from cough to food increases acidity too. A medicine in this sense will not be better than folk remedies.

Shelf life and treatment

Know that the treatment of radish with honey is not always easily tolerated. The duration of the course should be short - 10 days for adults and 7 days for children. Black radish juice, which helps to cope with the disease, cannot be consumed in its pure form. And you can store it, including in the form of mixtures, in the refrigerator for three days. Do not be lazy once every 3 days to prepare the medicine again.

Ready infusion, if it is inside the root, will be stored for the same 3 days, but already at T = 20-25 C. Then fermentation can begin.

In principle, this applies to any root crops. Close the container with a “lid” and there will be no problems.
