  • I've heard of using a spoonful of honey, or hot water and honey.

    Hey lady! Congrats on your pregnancy!!! I'm so happy for you!

    I have been sick all week and what I use is raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar mixed in equal parts honey. I take 2 tablespoons every few hours and it works great!

  • Seconding Honey - started giving it to my daughter a few years ago after a huge kids' medicine recall and have never looked back. She'll have it in a little hot water with lemon but usually just takes a teaspoon full in the AM and at bedtime. She also gets a sore throat from post nasal drip and we were able to send a bottle of honey to the school nurse for her to administer when we found out she visited the nurse every day for two weeks with a sore throat and they never called us.

  • I slice a few pieces of ginger, crush it a little and let it steep in hot water. I then mix in raw honey with lemon juice. The raw part is important. Grocery store honey is not as effective. For little ones, I put matys natural vapor rub on the feet and cover with socks. I have heard the wet sock treatment works too.
