These steps directly influence the amount of beneficial components that will end up in your teacup! Gently squeeze the tea bag to release any remaining extract. Drink 4 to 6 cups daily or as needed. To maximize the coating action of the herbs, gargle before swallowing. To enhance benefits, add honey, especially in dry climates.

    Health Notes

    Kid-Safe Cold Care

    Kid-Safe Cold Care
    Kid-Safe Cold Care: Main Image
    Parents have some simple, effective, and inexpensive alternatives at their disposal to soothe children's symptoms during the cold season
    Concerns in the news about the safety of cough and cold medicines have left many parents confused about the ways to treat their children's cold symptoms. At a hearing the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concluded that, until more research shows safety and efficacy, these medicines should not be given to children under two years old unless instructed by a healthcare provider. Fortunately, parents have some simple, effective, and inexpensive alternatives at their disposal to soothe children's symptoms during the cold season.

    Try a saline rinse

    A new study found that a daily saltwater nasal rinse is beneficial for kids with colds. The children who used saline nasal rinses (six times per day initially and three times per day during the rest of the 12-week study) had fewer nasal and throat symptoms, they were healthier, and fewer of them used medications to manage their symptoms than the children who did not use the rinses. They were also less likely to have been sick again, and they missed less school.

    The nasal rinse was a standard 0.9% saline solution (about 1/2 teaspoon of sodium chloride per 8 ounces of water) with trace elements and minerals in concentrations similar to those in seawater. Neti pots, small pots for nasal rinsing, and mineral salts to use with them, are now widely available.

    Sweet relief

    Honey is another cold-symptom remedy. A recent study found that children who received a single dose of raw buckwheat honey had less coughing and fewer sleep difficulties than children who received either a dose of honey-flavored dextromethorphan or no treatment.

    Honey has antimicrobial properties and can soothe irritated mucous membranes. As it may contain bacteria harmful to infants, honey should not be given to babies under 12 months old.

    Good old-fashioned cold care

    Parents can also look to the common sense cold remedies they may have grown up with. These time-tested techniques can help kids who tend to get lots of colds stay healthy and recover quickly during the cold and flu season:

    • Make sure your child gets plenty of fluids in order to maintain water balance and to thin secretions.
    • Feed them raw garlic, which has antibacterial and antiviral properties. Crush a clove or two and add to foods like soups and grains just before you serve them.
    • Gargling with plain water three times a day removes mucus and keeps bacteria and viruses from sticking around.
    • Give them plenty of vitamin C: 100 to 250 mg per day is a good idea, but it may take 500 to 1,000 mg per day once a cold hits to reduce the severity of symptoms and shorten their duration.
    • A warm, humid environment created by a humidifier may provide some comfort while riding out a cold.

    Cold medicine dos & don'ts

    For parents who may want to continue giving over-the-counter cold medicines to their children, the FDA has the following recommendations:

    • Read all of the information in the "Drug Facts" box on the product label.
    • Do not give children medicine more often or in greater amounts than what is listed on the product label and use only as directed.
    • Do not give children medication that is intended for adult use.
    • Be aware that using various cough and cold medicines in combination may pose health risks; parents should ask a doctor whether or not it is safe to use products in combination.
    • Use appropriate measuring devices; parents should contact their doctor or pharmacist if they do not understand the dosing directions.

    Even though a cold will naturally run its course, it's good to know that as a parent you have plenty of treatment options at your disposal to relieve your children's uncomfortable symptoms during cold and flu season and get them back on the road to wellness.

      Comments about Traditional Medicinals® Throat Coat®:

      The herbs in this tea have worked for hundreds of years, and they still work today to kick a horrible sore throat. If you do not like the flavor of licorice, you will HATE the taste of this tea. However, if you can get past that and get a few cups of this strong brew down over several hours, you will notice an immediate result. A cold with a severely painful sore throat that led to laryngitis was remedied remarkably over just three large cups of this tea. I simmer the tea bag in the pot with the water to really release the herbals into the brew, but it works as brewed on the box as well.

          I am a singer & I also suffer from allergies, especially post nasal drip which tends to dry & irritate my throat. I was introduced to Throat Coat tea by another singer & it was amazing! After a few sips, my throat felt relaxed & soothed. I drink a cup just before I have to sing & I instantly sing better. No more coughing or clearing my throat during a performance or rehearsal. I highly recommend it to anyone who sings.

            I stock up on this product when I know I'm going into long multi-day practices and performances. Nothing soothes my throat like this product, not only does it sooth, but it also allows me to actually sing when I need some rehab after a couple days. I drink it 30-45 minutes before a performance or practice and it helps every time! I love it!

            Comments about Traditional Medicinals® Throat Coat®:

            This is my magic 'make me sing' juice. When my voice goes and it's not a good time for that to be happening, stirct vocal rest only gets you so far, and that's not guaranteeing getting better just not worse. There's been times that I've woken up with barely a speaking voice, forget singing, and I'll drink about 5 glasses of this in a day before an audition, and not only was I able to sing but had an amazing audition. I would recommend this to everyone ESPECIALLY singers. Just add a bit of honey to enhance the taste and benefits :)
