    I have a really bad sore throat, it hurts to talk and swallow. Got any remedies?

    First I would make sure it is not strep throat or something that needs a prescription. If it is just a sore throat, I love making a drink with hot water, fresh squeezed lemon, and honey. It really helps soothe the throat. I also will gargle with a little hydrogen peroxide mixed in with a cup of warm water to help kill any germs.

    Salt water gargle or a few drops of grapefruit seed extract in water to gargle.

    Copied this from the Sufficient Self site. I used it myself a few weeks ago when I had a sore throat and chest congestion, it cleared both up within a day. I was very happy [​IMG]

    Use the white parts and the roots of scallions and some minced ginger (no need to peel, just scrub.) Simmer in some filtered water, covered, on low heat for 30 minutes. Strain and drink throughout the day, hot, with honey. This is an expectorant.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Sass, there's only one solution. Immediate and complete amputation.
