How Do You Cure A Sore Throat? Rhaa!

Fri Nov 03, 2006 7:57 pm

Hello all,

It appears (c'est une poire) that I am coming down with some form of flu (hopefully not the bird one) which manifests itself in the early stages by a sore throat and a light temperature but also clogged (not the toilet) ears.

Can this be quashed in these early stages as I am on holiday from this evening and do not wish to be sneezing with -2 degrees when in the Elbonia.

My sister woke up this morning and told me her throat was bleeding. Thankfully she isn't too good at talking yet and she actually meant to say she had a sore throat!

So Tim, go out and buy some Calpol!

If I wake up with a sore throat, I grab some Orange Juice, swill a bit of that and then ignore it, it'll go away when it goes away.
It may be too early to drink scotch... But it is NEVER too early to think about it...

The best cure is as follows

1 mug
1 large tablespoon of honey
juice of 1 large lemon
1 large tablespoon of brandy
Top up with boiling water

Take 2 aspirin or equivalent and drink that down as quick as you can, it works without fail. Kills all known germs dead.

Ok well it is unfortunately turning for the worse.

I went to university but came back pretty much instantly as can hardly stay on my feet.

Is turning out to be quite a nasty thing: sore throat, headache, ears, sweating.

I have the usual medication (note for skidmarks, that does not include viagrhaa).

Anybody have the quantities for someone who isn't a bear?

I fear if I take those quantities I may infact kill myself off.

A couple large cups of orange juice, a cough drop a little later, and no talking. Or enough whiskey to make you forget you have a sore throat  biggrin

I hope you people understand there is no DELICIOUS way of curing a soar throat. THe best which always works for me.... is pickle juice. Just get a shot of pickle juice, no jokes, and as much as you will gag and what not , it will go away.  Smile

Tequila. 8 one-ounce shots are known to do the trick. Even if it doesn't heal you, at least you'll be too pissed to notice it still hurts.  drunk 

Seriously... The following is Mom's recipe to relief flu symptoms:

2 cups water
2 tbsp honey
The juice of 1 lemon
Eucalyptus leaves
3 cloves of garlic
A piece of red onion

Boil everything for 5 minutes, then drink it as hot as you can take it. Contrhaary to what it may seem, it tastes quite good.

Sore throat - the onset of a cold....Well, let me tell you something. With the horrible cold I just had it started with a sore throat, then quickly went to congestion which lasted for two weeks. Approx. 3 days after the sore throat a light cough started which went to a heavy hacking cough, the kind that keeps you awake at 2:36 in the AM, coughing as if a lung is trying to be expelled and never lets you get a good nights sleep. You'll never get any sleep for two weeks. I feel sorry for you.

Try to stop saying 'rhaa' so much. It's probably shot your throat all to hell.

Here's a solution to your sore throat, and it'll also stop you using that childish rhaa.

I´ve been talking glycerine, honey and lemon and it´s been soothing my throat. I´ve also been on antibiotics from the chemist too as I have had a sore throat for over a week now.

Sorry to hear about your condition. Perhaps a bit of bed rest will do you good; if things are other than a simple cold, you may also wish to consult a doctor.

My best to you!  Smile

I always find a few doses of Deep Throat do the trick for me. I feel so much better afterwards.

Nitro-glycerine works better - that DEFINITELY kills all known germs dead.

Trust me, it doesn't taste bad! The honey and lemon seem to be stronger than the garlic and onion, and the eucalyptus makes it refreshing to the throat.

Only because you can't hold it for more than a couple of seconds in your mouth before passing out in horror, I would imagine. My version works beautifully, and has no onion, garlic or leaves in it. Yours might make quite a nice fish marinade though  Smile

I yield to no-one in my enthusiasm for onions and garlic, in stews and things, but not in a cold cure. Hot honey 'n lemon with brandy is extra delicious (if a bit caustic - just like me !) and needs no Toltec onion-voodoo sullying it's perfection  yuck  - no offence Carmen  biggrin
