I tried Mucinex a couple of times but it is not working fast enough-what natural remedies are there? Anyone know?

  • Drink lots and lots of water.... it's a natural expectorant. Lemon juice also helps to break up phlegm. I have tried warm or cold water with real lemon juice & honey a great help when I have a lot of phelgm with a cough!

  • eucylyptus. I use the oil and put a drop on my collar or the corner of my daughter's crib. It works very well.

  • Peppermint is a natural decongestant. Drink lots of peppermint tea. Eliminate dairy; it stimulates the production of mucus.
