  • 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.

  • To make it go away... take a clove of garlic and cut it into little pieces. Swallow them like pills. Within 2 hours your sore throat will pretty much be gone. Garlic is a natural antibiotic and "cure-all". I've done it and NOT smelled like a walking bread stick :) Its cheap and worth it!!!
