Did you know that eating fresh olives can heal a chronic cough? This is a ‘heong har’ (hometown in China) home remedy. I didn’t believe it until I tried it recently. My mil had brought some fresh olives back from Hong Kong recently and she asked me to chew on the fresh olives. Though the fresh olives tasted a tad bitter and sour, nevertheless, you have a fantastic aftertaste in your mouth. You would feel sweetness in your mouth after eating the olives. My mil also double boiled some soup made of fresh olives with lean pork for me. I drank a few bowls and I must say, the result is miraculous. I have no more cough now! Well, I’m not sure if it works well for you but it did for me.
