Fresh Breath

Gargle mouthwash, 2-3 times a day. Kills the bacteria that causes the throat to be sore and also fights colds and flus in earlier stages if starting in ur throat and nose. i gargled mouthwash only once wen i started to get a cold and it went by the next morning.

Ginger, Cinnamon, Honey Tea

When I have a really bad cold this helps a lot most of the time..

I grab a tea bag, the ground Cinnamon, some Honey and Fresh Ginger..

I chop up the Ginger nice and fine-like, throw it in a mug.. a small amount, maybe a teaspoon.. then i top that with a bunch of Cinnamon, about 4 or 5 shakes.. till it's coated.. top it off with a tea bag and boiling water.. squeeze out all the goodness and mix the flavors... add honey for sweetness.

Sore throat, strep throat & laryngitis

I always keep a bottle of mercurochrome, on hand for swabbing out throats. Get a 6" cotton swab and dip in the mercurochrome then swab the throat well coating it well. It will start working immediately. This was an old home remedy given to my Grandmother by an nurse a long time ago, and I have used it on my daughter.

Choccy Sandwich!

Get two slices of white bread and get some nutella choccy spread and dollop it on so it's good and thick, without any butter. (thats how i like it). make sure when your chewing it's good and lubricated, and it should slide down easily. suppose it would be good for children if they have a sore throat, and getting a cold and you send them to school.(like me)

Dill Pickle Juice Eases The Pain

All you have to do is drink (Dill) Pickle Juice...I always save the juice left in the jars after the pickles are gone... it tastes better than plain vinegar. You can drink it or gargle with it.

Oranges, oranges

At the first scratchy feeling, eat a couple of oranges or chew vitamin C. Chewable c gets into your blood stream quicker. The pills, about two thirds of the potency is eliminated thru the digestive tract.

Chocolate Milk

I have a sore throat and it hurts to cough. I tried Cloraseptic or the generic brand, They are good but dont last but a few seconds. I then started drinking Chocolate milk. I guess because of the thickness and the sugar it actually takes the pain away. I had trouble sleeping because of my sore throat. I drank some chocolate milk and laid down and I slept for at least 6 hours. White milk is ok but it is not quite thick enough. The sugar also helps. You may email me at Tygurlee@clearwire.net if you have any other questions.
