    Sore throat remedy please?

    Hi guys - not sure if this is another carb flu related thing (not sure becuase I have been really low carb for over a month now... but I have a sore throat... dont really want to use honey but am wondering if anyone has any ideas? Im taking a multivitamin and fish oil.... eat plenty of dark leafy greens and berries.... maybe I need a blast of vit c?....

    Thanks in advance

    Ginger tea - grate ginger, put it in boiling water and let it infuse for 5 minutes. I take a piece about as big as my thumb, just a bit thicker, and it is good for 3-4 cups of tea. You can drink it like that or with lemon.

    If you need a vitamin blast, I suggest sauerkraut or kimchi.

    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    Or, if you don't want or can't have the whisky, then try gargling with salt and water - as hot as you can stand it! Tastes vile, but works wonders.

    Throat Coat tea made with Slippery Elm bark is amazing. You can find it in health food stores.

    Also take 15000 iu Vitamin D3 for 3 days to boost your immune system.

    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.

    There's a bad cold going around so I doubt it's carb flu. As has been said, salt water gargle, Vit C, rest, drink plenty of fluids. I've been known to dissolve an aspirin in the salt water as well. Gross as hell, but if it's really bad.

    Fresh sage tea with honey. That's been a lifesaver for me when I felt too horrible to go out and buy something, but there was sage in the garden.
