Baby Respiratory Issues

Preparation Time

15 min Preparation

Persimmons are a real superfood for cough and persistent phlegm! Actually, they are a cold food according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Therefore, they are very beneficial for “hot” conditions, such as a sore throat, a congested nose (with yellowish discharge) or congested lungs, fever, as well as persistent phlegm which is difficult to expectorate.

Moreover, they can help relieve a cough, quench thirst, kill parasites and reduce inflammation present in your little one’s body. However, due to the cooling ability, persimmons should only be consumed in the presence of heat or inflammation.
