December 1, 2015 1:45am CST
People always have a problem with sore throat. I am going to share some of my homemade remedy for the same. Hope this would help everyone. 1. You need to drink lots of water. (The idea is to have a lot of fluids in you so you don't get dehydrated) 2. Mix Honey in your Tea. 3.Use Vicks Vapo Rub it is a cough suppressant this would give relieve to your cough. If you guys have any other remedies. Please post and help everyone.

My mom used to soak cooked rice overnight. And she will drink the water the next morning. She swears by this. I never try this out because apparently, you have to leave the soaked rice outside the house. If I were to leave such a thing outside my house, the chickens will start to eat the rice! Another remedy for sore throat that my mom recommends is to drink tamarind juice. I never try this either because I don't think I would like the taste. All I do when I have an irritating sore throat is to drink lots of water. That somehow soothes my throat. And I will just drink cough medicine. My doctor suggests to gargle with salt water. That will kill the bacteria that is causing the sore throat. I think gargling with an anti-bacterial mouthwash can also do the trick.

I think you are familiar with joshanda and on the other hand ginger tea is very effective.
