Recently, a friend has been suffering from some severe strep throat/pain issues. Here is a recipe for an all natural remedy.
Brit, this one is for you….
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 cup warm water
Place lemon juice in a cup, add honey second. The honey will dissolve easier in the juice. Stir. Next add the warm water and stir until fully dissolved. Be sure the water is very warm to help. Allow to cool and gargle for 20-30 seconds. Repeat every hour.
You can add the antimicrobial effects of garlic by gently simmering a fresh clove in the water first. It won’t taste quite as pleasant and chances are you will use it less often, however.
