Hi, I am 6 months pregnant and I am having cold and dry cough, no fever. I understand, doctors do not recommend any medicine during pregnancy, but I am having hard time getting any sleep. Can you recommend any ayurvedic medicine that we can get in US. Also, Can I take Sambucus syrup for kids? This is an ayurvedic medicine available here for kids.

Thanks for your response.

Thanks for writing to us.
Given your symptoms, the following treatment would be useful for you. It will also not harm your child.

1. Take XXXXXXX (tulasi ) leaves 10 nos with black pepper 5nos. With honey twice a day.
2. Gargle Thrice with turmeric and salt with warm water.
3. Syrup Septilin or bresol (himalaya ) 5 ml thrice a day.

Do not take chilled water or cold food.

Honey and dry ginger is also beneficial if you can not manage anything.
