I’ve been sick. Sore throat. Tired. Generally yucky. And I’m totally not blaming that kid with “hand, foot and mouth” disease or that adult with the 24 hour flu. Both who I spent a week with. I’m blaming all those people on the airplane that can’t COVER THEIR MOUTHS when they are hacking and sneezing.
I tried “cold-eze”, ibuprophene, Alka seltzer cold tablets, — mostly cause those were in my cupboard. Too tired and puny to drive anywhere and buy anything else. Then I tried hot water with lemon and tea which actually helped the throat a little. So I started thinking about home remedies. Hmmmm, what else could I whip up without leaving the house? A little research on the Internet for home remedies. One cup of hot water with 1 tablespoon of lemon and 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Had all the ingredients and I have to say it was totally disgusting. But the sore throat went away briefly. Long enough to get to the store and buy heavily marketed OTC drugs.
So, my question to you is, what home remedies do you rely on to cure those little miseries? Not sick enough to go to the doctor, just sick enough.
