As symptoms take over, you grope for more information on this year’s flu strain, what to watch out for, and its treatment. You may even look for this year’s best flu medicines, but I can tell your right now, save your money and your body. Those things aren’t effective anyways. Trying to deal with a sore throat, dry cough, and losing your voice is certainly never pleasant.
Gelatin is perfect when it comes to coating and soothing a sore throat, lessening the chance of a nasty, dry cough. Both marshmallows and Jello contain gelatin, so take your pick!
Honey is packed with countless antimicrobial properties, and studies have shown that it can help reduce coughs associated with the common cold and flu. Adding honey to a tea is a good option too.
Lemon is packed with lots of Vitamin C, which makes it one of the best remedies for sore throats and general sickness. You can add some lemon wedges to warm water and drink the solution for a lemon “tea.”
Ginger and cinnamon are packed with properties that have the ability to help fight a cold, cough, and similar bouts of sickness. All you have to do is add ground ginger or cinnamon to warm water or tea and drinking the solution.
