Recipe to Reduce Phlegm

Take 1 pear.

Cut the pear in half, remove and discard the core. Put the pear in a bowl. Fill the hole with approximately 1 tsp. rock sugar (break up sugar if necessary). If you can't find rock sugar, use honey instead. 

Add 1-2 cups of water to a pot. Place the bowl in the pot.

Cover the pot with a lid. Steam for 15-20 minutes. Eat the pear and drink the liquid in the bowl:

-         at night before resting (if not sleeping well).

-         in the morning (if a lot of phlegm in the morning or to facilitate expectoration)

-         twice a day (if severe, when getting better, reduce to once a day)
