  • Gargle with salt water for the sore throat. Try taking a nice long bath and drinking plenty of fluids and sleep.

  • Lots of fluids and rest. That is about it. Try hot tea with lemon and honey.

  • Mix honey (anti bacterial) and cayenne pepper (anti-inflammatory) for a great cough syrup and throat soother. Peppermint (natural decongestant) tea is great for congestion. Miso soup will make you feel better inside and out.
