Fennel Seeds For Dry Cough

Last month I had a terrible dry cough after exposure to some cold Colorado winds while taking nature walks.  I would break out into a coughing episode anytime anywhere which was quite embarrassing. I tried cough suppressant but after I stopped taking them the choking coughs returned.  eventually I realized I was taking too much of ginger and other heating spices in my food and decided to chew on 1/2 a teaspoon of fennel/saunf seeds followed by some water.  My dry choking coughs stopped immediately after just one dose.  I continued with some fennel tea and also chewing 1/4 tsp of fennel seeds after each meal and the cough disappeared in 2-3 days.

NOTE: Honey is extremely heating in nature and is great for coughs only if you have a lot of phlegm.
