sore throat

All day today I have had the worse sore throat. I am a big baby when it comes to sore throat. I ask the Mom of a friend of mine. She told me to gargle with two TBSP of apple cider vinegar in 8 oz of water. Then swallow some. Do this every half hour. Guess what it works. I am pain free! Now if she could cure the common cold, I woikd be in Heaven! Lol

  • Hot tea with honey also helps.

  • I've used this method:

    Gargle with warm salt water to help reduce swelling and relieve discomfort:

    • Gargle at least once each hour with 1tsp (5g) of salt dissolved in 8fl oz of warm water.
