No, I don’t have a sore throat. But a sore throat was one of the main symptoms of the illness I had in early September (see my Sept 18 “Feverzzz!” post). Then, at some point during my convalescence, I started getting a sore throat again (what happened is that one day I did too much, too soon…dumb me!).
Well, as it turns out, I managed to come up with a super easy, tasty and effective remedy. I took it for four days, as soon as I had the first symptom, which included difficulty swallowing.
Without further ado, here’s what I did:
I mixed about a half a spoonful of good (read: expensive!) Manuka honey from New Zealand with about a 1/4 teaspoon of C3 Complex curcumin.
I kept small “sips” of this mixture in my mouth and under my tongue for as long as possible, so that they would slowly trickle down my poor swollen, inflamed throat…
I took this “potion” twice a day, first thing in the morning and before going to bed. And after only two days my throat was as good as new. No, I kid you not! Oh, by the way, I kept taking it for two more days, just in case…Four days in all…
Anyway, I thought I would share my experience with you…I mean, all you need is to keep a jar of good Manuka honey and some good curcumin powder in your pantry at all times. Easy peasy!
By the way, quelle coincidence!, a friend sent me the link to this abstract demonstrating the strong antibacterial activity of curcumin against a bunch of real nasties, such as MRSA, E. coli, K. Pneumoniae, etc. Check it out here: http://goo.gl/lXPL0i Impressive, huh?
Special thanks to my kitty, Pinga, who really helped me write this post, as you can see (yes, she’s looking right at the screen in this photo…helping me edit my post, of course!)… 😉
ahh good to know! ’tis the season.
What’s curcumin please? I’m well acquainted with the beautiful manuka honey 🙂
