Better But With Side Effects

I went to bed with a mild sore throat, and woke up in the middle of the night unable to swallow. Tried ACV, warm water, and creamed cinnamon honey. I think I drank a bit too much of it as my stomach has a nice ball of fire in it, like I drank a fifth of whiskey. However, my throat is still a little sore, but much better than last night. I intend on trying again shortly, without swallowing, to see if it will continue to improve.

Better But With Side Effects

Woohoo, thanks, Earthclinic! I used 2 tbs. ACV, a LOT of honey to cover up the taste, and a little lemon juice in a bunch of hot water and my sore throat is almost gone.

My throat was sore all yesterday and I kept waking up in the middle of the night, it was so bad. I finally Googled a cure on Earthclinic and this came up. I did it last night around 3am and today around 7am and feel scores better.

** The only warning I would say is, use a lot of hot water because the vinegar was so acidic, it made a little part of my tongue bleed the second time I did it - just a minor issue, though.
