How to Cure a Sore Throat
Sheesh, some people will do anything to save a buck! Going for my 4th No Spend day in a row and I was looking for a fresh approach so thought if I got sick and stayed inside for a couple of days I wouldn't be tempted to SPEND!
Top that one!
I have a lot of lemons, honey and a bottle of nice dark Appleton rum so hot toddy and a warm bed - here I come!
Please note below where it says to "avoid strenuous physical activity" - I'm going to pass on biking tonight;p Also note that I can eat icecream:) Now if only I had some in the house! Rats.
"People with sore throats will first look to heal the pain, but it is very important to cure the cause of the sore throat altogether. In order to do this, one must drink lots of fluids, rest well, avoid smoke, pollutants in the air and allergens as much as possible, eat foods that are soothing to the throat such as ice cream and hot soup, consume plenty of Vitamin C and Selenium, and avoid strenuous physical activity."
Know any other home remedies that make use of things I may already have in the house?? Got any extra icecream??
