    When I get a sore throat I drink coffee with coconut milk, cinnamon and raw cocoa powder.

    I've never heard of using hot water for a salt-water gargle. I've always used tap water. It's the same effect as bathing a wound in the ocean. Not sure exactly what it is, but the healing is amazing.

    Also- copious amounts of lemon tea- whether it's a tea bag or a squirt of lemon juice in hot water. Can be drunk with or without honey (but isn't everything better with? Particlularly when you don't feel well?) Also, honey does have mild anti-bacterial properties. Might not be a bad compromise given that you've got something in you that apparently shouldn't be there.

    Kitty,

    I totally agree with Adrian.

    However, after 3 days at 15,000 IU then stay on 10,000 IU Vitamin D3 for 3 months, & get your blood tested to verify your ng/ml level is at 70 to 80. Adjust your dosage as required, each 1,000 IU change will adjust your blood level by 10.

    Unless you get a LOT of direct sunshine you will need Vitamin D3 supplements for life.

    Best to you,

    What works for me is raw honey. Its got antibacterial properties etc. And it soothes my throat. Meat stock also helps.

    I took a tbsp of coconut oil every time my throat got sore last year and it helped. Sorta let it just ooze down your throat.

    The salt water gargle can work -- 1/4 teaspoon in 8 oz. of water. Cool to warm water. Not hot. It bathes your throat in an essentially isotonic solution and helps keep it moist. I've never been a big fan. Good broth is probably similar and also tastes better.

    Lately I've used elderberry syrup, but it is made with honey.
