Combat the constant wheezing this Christmas

“Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring tingle tingling too. Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you,” goes the popular Christmas carol. Winter truly is a magical time. In some places in the US, the snow has already started to fall.

Meteorological winter starts on December 1 and ends around the February 28 or 29 time frame. These are the coldest 3 months of the year. These 3 months usually see a lot of snowfall. These 3 months can be an amazing time for your family.

Playing in the snow is a wonderful activity. Sleigh riding, snowman making, and snowball fights are great and fun. If you have kids, this is a great time to bond. However, don’t let your guard down.

The cold weather can give you respiratory illnesses if you are not careful. Make sure you keep yourself and your family warm when you go out and play in the snow. Wear extra winter clothing if you need to. If there’s a snowstorm, just stay indoors.

Even when you take all the necessary precautions, things can still go wrong. You can still catch a cold or flu. Aside from the runny nose, you could also develop a cough. This can cause a lot of wheezing and hacking as you try to clear your lungs. 

What’s up with a cough?

A cough is a response of your body. You cough out things which do not belong to your windpipe or lungs. These can be as varied as inhaled dirt of food. Coughing is supposed to protect you and your body.

One of the common causes of coughing are viruses such as those which cause the cold or flu. These coughs may last several days to expel the mucus full of germs out of your lungs. This is the phlegm which you spit out. Your irritated lungs need to be cleared so you can take in more oxygen.

How does that mucus get in your lungs in the first place? How does it cause all that wheezing and coughing? When you have the cold or flu virus, your body produces mucus to help trap these invaders. In most cases, the body produces more mucus than it needs. 

Sometimes, this results in a runny nose. Other times, the mucus runs down the back of your nose to your throat. This is called postnasal drip and it often results in accumulating in the lungs. This causes your body to cough up the mucus.

To help cough up the phlegm, cough syrups were invented. They are a dime a dozen but not all of them are created equal. There is one which is a by-product of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is a popular cough syrup with many Chinese people - Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa.
