A sore throat remedy

Do you ever wake up with a sore throat and swollen glands? I sometimes do in winter and have found the easiest and quickest remedy.

Put some turmeric and salt in hot water and gargle. Swish it round in your mouth too and really try to get it as far back in your throat as you can. Do it several times and then don't eat or drink anything for  at least 5 minutes.

Cleaning your tongue with a tongue scraper will also help as it removes all those nasty toxins that love to hang out there.

Give it a try, it really does work.

* Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and a natural antiseptic and is used in may ayurvedic remedies.
