My mom always gave me a spoonful of honey when I was younger
My mom is from the islands and if she even thinks we're getting sick she makes this drink.
She boils shredded fresh ginger, lemons, apple cider, cinnamon and nutmeg. You can add some oranges too if you want. Once its heated you can strain it or leave it as is since ginger is supposed yo be really healthy for you. Add honey to your drink to sweeten it and sooth your throat. It usually cleared up my colds in a few days. Drinking it twice a day
One thing that works wonders is boiling 1 tea bag and lemon drops, or half a lemon. Bring it to a boil and breathe in the vapors. do this for at least 3 min. do it every few hours with fresh tea and lemons. hope u feel better!
Try hot water with honey and lemon.
Hi Steci,, I am new to this forum so I am not sure of all the tricks, and therefore don't know where you live but have you thought of getting tested for Pertussis (whooping cough)? I know in Minnesota we are having record numbers and it is very contagious and dangerous for newborns....just something to think about....sorry you are so miserable!
