  • Try a humidifier and warm tea with honey and lemon. But if your cough gets worse when you lay down or this cough stays around for 2 weeks you should see a care provider to make sure it is not pneumonia.

  • Try taking about 2 tablespoons of ACV and add about the same amount of water. Warm it up and add a little honey (to make it taste good AND to coat your throat) ...then drink it! The ACV will kill any bacteria as well as break up mucus and the honey will help soothe and coat your throat. GL

  • Oh. And drinking a daily dose of ACV will boost your immune system!
