If you suffer from irritating little health issues that are not extreme enough to make you see a doctor, here are some quick fixes that you can probably find in your home. For example, if you have a cough, try a spoonful of honey as sugar molecules are known to help soothe a sore throat. You can also give a hot shower a try as the steam will help loosen any irritant that has traveled down your throat and will act as a lubricant. Finally, if you have turmeric and ginger in your pantry, grind a pinch of each together, add a half cup of water and gargle. The anti-inflammatory properties in both spices should combine to help stop that cough.
