Now seems to be the time of year where everyone is getting colds. I'm not one to get sick very often, but it must have been my turn! Last week I could feel a sore throat coming on and I wanted to stop it before it got worse. I don't go rushing off to the doctor because I believe in natural healing. This is what I did to stop my sore throat and a cold from making it's annoying self present! It worked and I am as good as new after 2 days of this! As soon as I felt the 'scratchy tickle' in my throat, I first vigorously gargled warm salt water. I didn't use a specific measurement of salt. I used SEA SALT, by the way and put enough in my glass to just cover the bottom. Then filled with warm water, stirred it up a bit and gargled. Do this vigorously though and tilt your head back so the salt water reaches deep in your throat. Then I ate a few spoonfuls of RAW ORGANIC HONEY (You can do this throughout the day as well to sooth). Then, I took a spoonful of HEMP SEED OIL, once a day for 2 days, about 4 hours before I went to bed. Each morning I woke up feeling perfectly fine. Another tip for helping a sore throat if this doesn't quite do the trick is to drink 8oz of ORANGE JUICE with 1/4 of a teaspoon of CAYENNE PEPPER mixed in. You won't really taste the pepper and you will feel immediate relief.
