Was it the honey or the salt water ?
Tuesday, January 08, 2013
For a challenge this week we were asked to try a home remedy for an aliment that we are having, of course when I read the challenge on Saturday I didn't have anything bothering me and was wondering what I would do this week, well as my luck would have it I got sick. I woke up Sunday morning with a horrible sore throat, So I read the article on sore throats I had heard about gargling with salt water but never heard about how honey was supposed to help with a sore throat.
On Sunday I was trying to just deal with the pain trying to use advil and cough drops to help nothing seemed to give me any relief. On Monday morning I had enough, I decided to try some of these home remedies thinking that it would not do anything but also would not hurt to try. I drank a few glasses of tea with honey in them and I gargled with warm salt water they both seemed to help with the pain for a short time however it still returned. On Tuesday morning I woke up to my surprise I had very little pain, I have never had a sore throat hurt so bad and then over night seem to almost be gone. Something had helped my sore throat, which one of the home remedies it was I will never know, but I do know that next time I have a sore throat I will be using both to help with it.
