  • Gargle w/rosemary oil (mix it w/warm water); drink ginger tea w/honey & lemon; use a neti pot to clear out your sinuses and try to alleviate some of the post nasal drip that irritates the throat; increase your probiotic intake.

  • hot tea, lemon and honey. A doctor once told me this, and when I asked him if he learned that in medical school, he said no, that his mother told him, and it worked!
