Natural Remedy For Sore Throat

Both of my kids were sick last week so of course I am now sick too. Isn't that the way it always is? I had a killer sore throat for three days without any other symptoms so I was convinced I had strep throat. I even lost my voice for a couple of days, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise but I will save that for another day. Luckily I developed some cold symptoms later so I knew I had a cold. I am nursing so I can't take any medicine right now and I needed to get rid of the pain. My sister-in-law gave me a recipe for some ginger tea to help me and it worked wonders! I drank it before bed and my pain was mostly gone the next day, I couldn't believe it.

To make the tea boil one cup of water, get it nice and hot. Add a small unpeeled piece of ginger to your cup and then add in your boiling water. Squeeze a slice of lemon into your cup and add a pinch of salt. Stir for a minute until everything is mixed. Drink the tea once it has cooled down slightly, make sure it's still hot though just don't burn yourself.
