What do you do for a sore throat?

I have a sore throat and a squeaky voice. I usually drink warm tea but I was wondering what other moms do.

  • family recipe, this has cured me of even strep throat in a single day. And it tastes wonderful!

    Make a liquid with the juice of one lemon, & about 2-3 tablespoons honey. (add as much honey as you want)

    the honey not only kills germs/virus's, but it also draws out the virus to the surface & the lemon kills virus's & bacteria very quicky! Lemon is a wonderful germ killer!

    Gargle with it, sip it slowly & do this about 3 times a day. Not only will it soothe your soar throat, but it wil treat it too. Guaranteed to work (at least it always works for my family & always has, mom's been doing this since the 40's & her family are all Dr.'s)

    unless you want to wrap dirty socks around your neck, this works like a charm & tastes really good!

  • You might not want to do this are not even heard about this. This is something I know works very well. Get the dirtiest socks in the house or anyone socks who is very dirty, put them together and wrap them around yur neck for at least 4 hours, and repeat this when you go to bed, if your sore throat hadn't already gone away by then(within the 4 hours).
