Treatments for a Sore Throat

To ease a painful throat:

Honey is good for sore throats, coughs and colds. Honey and lemon juice in equal parts, dissolved in hot water, is a soothing drink which helps to relax the throat and kill off any harmful bacteria.

Also, gargling a mixture made from apple cider vinegar and water could prove to be a great relief for a sore throat be that a bacterial or viral infection.

Use a 50/50 mixture, and spit out the solution after gargling, which should be repeated every hour or so.

After gargling rinse the mouth with clean water to prevent the acid from eroding the enamel on your teeth.

This information is an edited extract from the book 'Honey and its many health benefits' by Margaret Briggs. And is available for purchase from Bookmart Ltd, Blaby Road, Wigston, Leicester, LE18 1SE.
