Home Remedy Ingredients:
- Apple Cider Vinegar - 1 to 2 Tablespoons
- Warm Water - Small Glass

Add 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and some honey to a small glass of warm water and drink the mixture to soothe a sore throat and kill off an infection.
[YEA] Josh from Akron, Ohio: "okay ive been so sick for 3 days that i can barely move, cant eat, and general discomfort. i tried the 3 tbs ACV and 3 tbs of honey in a glass of tea. i hate tea but i would do this anytime my throat hurts. it was instant relief for my throat. now if i could get the rest of my body to stop aching, and these cold sweats to go away i'd be good as gold."Replies
06/17/2008: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hey Josh from Akron,
What you are describing could be a number of things - first two that comes to mind is flu and strep throat. Since response ACV/honey worked so well on the first dose and knowing that ACV will kill streptococcus organism, I think I'd be inclined to lean toward strep throat and continue taking ACV/honey until feeling all better. However, I don't think I'd take 2 tablespoons at once - l tsp every hour or so would probably be more tolerable and work the same."
Apple Cider Vinegar, Cayenne
[YEA] 01/16/2012: May from Melbourne, Australia: "I took AL from malaysia's advice on the apple cider vinegar mixed with ground chillies. I woke up with a terrible sore throat this morning and it has lasted all day - 5 mins ago my voice was croaky and horribly sore. I just gargled Apple Cider Vinegar and chili pepper diluted with water and I feel better already! My voice is almost back to normal! Thank you so much!"
[YEA] 08/07/2011: Kyle from Clarksville, Tn: "I just happened to find this site while desperately searching for something to help my sore throat. Its the middle of summer and I didn't exactly have a stock of conventional cold/flu medicine at my home. I did have Nyquil, but it was already 0530 and I did not want to sleep the rest of my Sunday away just to treat a sore throat. Thats where this site came in. I tried a suggestion on here of 8oz of boiling water, 1/4tsp of Cayenne pepper and a couple TBs of ACV. From the moment I took the first sip I was sold. I felt instant relief. I've been gargling/drinking the mixture for the last 15 - 20 minutes and my throat soreness is almost completely gone! I'm going to keep this regiment up throughout the day in hopes that by this evening I won't have anything to worry about. Thanks for providing a place where people can share these types of remedies with one another!"Replies
[YEA] 08/20/2011: Amber from Seattle, Wa replies: "Came down with a raging sore throat, headache & fever yesterday. Was really too sick to do anything but sleep. This morning my throat was still on fire so I resorted to the disgusting recepie that always works after gargling with Hydrogen Peroxide.
8 oz. Hot water, 1 shot glass ACV, 2 TBL honey & 1/2 tsp cayenne. Today I added something else, smashed clove of garlic in a tea ball to steep in my horrible tea. Well, sore throat has lessened and congestion is breaking up. Why resist what Mother Nature gives us when it works so well?"
[YEA] 02/03/2010: Ms. Kaye from Indianapolis, Indiana: "Concoction of apple cider vinegar, cayenne pepper, dash of salt, honey, lemon, organic throat coat tea bag, and honey and lemon tea bag helped my sore throat. Taking Acv straight works, but if u can't stand the taste try this:
ACV: 2-3tbsp; sprinkle of cayenne pepper; a dash of sea salt or reg.salt; 2tsp honey; slice of lemon;(cut in half and sqeeze juice in tea, remove pulp & place in cup) the other half garnish cup, eat after tea is gone; steep organic throat coat for 3-5 mins. & take out. Steep and leave the black tea & honey teabag in glass. SIP, gargle, & swallow. Taste is ok. May not be the best but u should feel better. Repeat as neccessary.
I decided to combine all the remedies into a nice herbal tea. U can add brandy to this. You will sleep well and you will be able to swallow."
[YEA] 01/18/2010: C.summers from Fort Worth, Tx Usa: "I'm 33 yrs old, have had a bad sore throat for 4 days & it's FINALLY going away thanks to this website!!! I read everyones posts & suggestions & tweaked your ideas to make up my own. Here's what I did:
1) Went & got fresh ginger (which I peeled), carrots, apple, lemon (use whatever qty you like) - juiced & drank
2) made a concoction of 1 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1 tblsp. apple cider vinegar, 1 tblsp. honey, 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice - add hot water & a splash of cold water --- gargle as many times as you wish & then continue gargling as you feel like it
3) OPTIONAL - same concoction as #2 MINUS the cayenne pepper - drink it down
I'm telling you - it works! Yesterday I thought I was dying & today I'm almost 100% back to me. WOO HOO!!! Good luck!!!"
11/27/2012: Liliana from Montreal, Qc replies: "I feel so bad is my 2nd day plus I have to work, I will try this without the cayenne, hope it works. Salt and water didn't do anything, thanks for your recipe i'll let you know what happens."
Apple Cider Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide
[YEA] 11/29/2009: Joe from Toledo, Oh: "Apple Cider Vinegar, Hydrogen Peroxide cure for Sore Throat
The last two times I woke up and had a sore throat coming on strong, I used the following method to relieve it overnight. Do this once in the morning, once in the mid-day, and once before bead. And repeat the following day after throat is feeling better.
1. Use Hydrogen Peroxide 3% (any generic brand) as a gargle, make use to gargle enough to get both sides of the tonsils! You can dillute with equal parts water, just make sure to gargle about a half cup if you do (ex: gargle a little, spit, and repeat until gone)
2. Use Hydrogen Peroxide 3% to clean/disinfect ears. (I read somewhere that most viral/bacterial illnesses start in the ears and that if not treated there will persist for days) Clean ears out as good as possible with cotton swab/q-tip. Take a dropper or use the cap and put a good splash (3 drops or so)of Hydrogen Peroxide in each ear, tilting your head and letting it fizz in your ear for about 2 or 3 minutes (on each side). I read that you should not do this if you have tubes in your ear! You can also use a cotton swab/q-tip soaked in peroxide to clean ears if uncomfortable with the first method (which is preferred).
At this point I like to repeat the gargle just to make sure I got it all.
Lastly, Take 2-3 TBL ACV (preferrably organic but it doesn't matter) and 1 TBL Honey (preferrably raw and unfiltered but it doesn't matter) and add to about 1/4 to 1/3rd cup of water (preferrably warm). Take a few big gulps, and some little ones and get it on tonsils. With last swallow gargle it before swallowing.
This covers and eliminates the infection in the throat, the mouth, and the ears.
I have tested this method twice with success. It is rather inexpensive and works great! And it takes about 5 to 10 minutes 3 times a day. The only nagging problem is the congestion which I just use some vapor rub on my chest, throat, and under my nose to get some relief."
[YEA] 04/03/2008: Dallas from Hayesville, NC: "For many years, when I had started to get a soar throat I would take 2 aspirins and let them melt on the back of my throat and let them disolve. This would usually cure the soar throat if I did it early enough."Replies
06/13/2008: Keshia from Jersey City, NJ replies: "My throat had been hurting me since last night. I just tried letting the aspirin dissolve some at the back of my throat, and I'm feeling much better already! I hope it lasts! Thanks!"
[YEA] 11/27/2009: Jennifer from Fontana, Ca: "tea remedy for sore throat
My husband did this for me and I was amazed. I have had a sore throat for 3 days. He took a green tea bag, water, a half lemon, 1-2 tbs honey(taste) and 2 aspirin and put in in the microwave for 2 min... when it cooled enough i drank it and Im telling you my sore throat was gone within 20 min.. this is not a cure it will come back but do it every 6-8 hours or so and you will be able to swallow food! its thanksgiving and i spent it bed but at least i was able to eat what they brought home! This also works for cough and fever!! GOOD LUCK!"Replies
12/18/2009: Pchandra from Piscataway, Nj replies: "I think the key ingredient that worked here is the 'husband preparing it with a touch of love' that probably contributed 80% effect to the relief' rest all added to the remaining 20% :)"
Aspirin, Salt, Baking Soda
[YEA] 07/14/2009: Freshcougarbabe from St Louis, MO: "2 asprins disolved with 1 tablespoon of salt and baking soda in warm water. I get sore throats all the time and I gargle with this mixture and in a day or two my sore throat is gone. Also I tried the apple cider vinegar, then garggling with the salt baking soda and asprin mixture, then garrgled with 1/2 teaspoon of cayeene pepper in warm water and then laid with a warm towel around my next and this really helped me out the last time because my throat was a little more severe than other times. So i suggest that you just play around with combinations until you find the right one for you."
Baked Lemon and Olive Oil
[YEA] Tara McDonald from Perth, ON, Canada: "This recipe was given to my grandparents by a spunky 90 year old (or should I say young) opera singer one day while he was digging in his garden. He valued his voice greatly and refused to take any "modern medications" that might numb his throat instead of heal it.
Recipe: 1 Lemon, Good Cold Pressed Olive Oil, Honey (optional). Go around the lemon - poking it with a fork and then put it in the oven (350') until juice bubbles out the holes. Cool. Squeeze the lemon and put the juice in a jar. Add an equal amount of olive oil. Add some honey if you like. SHAKE! Take a small spoonful now and again - like a lozenge."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 08/10/2009: Linda from Lincoln City, Oregon: "I have been dealing with candida mostly in my digestive track for 9-10 years now.In November of 2008 I had to take an antibotic for a surgery procedure at the time which I had an allergec reaction to.Well ever sense then I have had on and off a presistant extremely sore throat. I follow a fairly strict candiad diet outlined in Dr Crooks book. I had a white pustule in the upper left side of the throat.I knew it was due to the fungi in my system so I began a more aggressive program to treet it.I purchased Candida ___ from ___ ____.After taking this for 4-5 days I woke up with a crick in the upper right side of my neck (extremely painful) After a week and still taking it I became much worse (I had to sleep in my husbands recliner for probably 1 1/2 months)I went to see my ND Susan ___ who after looking me over said that the pain center manifesting in my upper right shoulder/neck was my gall bladder maridean. Susan asked what I had been taking lately. I happened to have some Candida ___ with me, she went over the ingredents and with some testing discovered I'd had an allergic reaction to the oregano in the Candida ___.
Needless to say I quit taking that but it took about another month before my system completly cleared and I could sleep in bed again.Ykes!! What do I do now? Finally able to get back on the computer I have sense started taking, Caprylic acid, Olive Leaf extract and Trifala all 3 times a day with other supplements.Took these for 2 months still not much relief. Went on the cave man diet (which constipated me but helped some)At the same time though I was using 1/2 tsp sodium bicarbonate in 1/2 glass water 3 times a day. The sore throat left WOOHOO. I stopped the soda and the sore throat came back in 3 days with a vengence in spite of taking the my supplements. I made up a Turmeric paste used it like a losenge (some relief).
Back to the computer I came across Dr.Simonsini (cancer is a fungus) again. In one of his statements he said he administered sodium bicarbonate by injeation or aresol. HUMMM I have a nebulizer so this is what I did. Mixed 1/4 cup boiled then cooled water to 1 tsp.sodium bicarbonate mix well.I filled up my nebulizer cup with the mixture, turned it on, started breathing the mixture and simply could hardly believe the YUCK THAT CAME OUT OF ME. I usually use collodial silver in the nebulizer but I tell ya the soda mixture worked 100 times better than silver did!!! The first go round I filled the nebulizer cup up twice and just kept getting rid of YUCK. I did this twice yesterday and two times today and doing much better. (I had no idea I had so much infection) I thought it was just a sore throat. I will only use it again tommorrow if the throat flares up. I am also drinking 1/2 tsp soda with some lime now that I found this wonderful site.THIS WAS THE MOST INCREDABLE EXPECTORANT I HAVE EVER USED!!!!!!!!"Replies
05/11/2010: Tina from Bowling Green, Ohio, Usa replies: "Are you sure you used that much baking soda and water? My nebulizer only holds maybe a table spoon or so of liquid and takes a long time to nebulize what I put in it. It would take a very long time to breath in that much mixture! Please respond soon.Thanks."
[YEA] 03/18/2005: Christine from London: "The Lemon and Honey tea worked but only for around half an hour. I have a cure which lasts longer: Crush black currants to get the juice out but try not to get any of the skin in with the juice. Put it in a mug and heat it until it is is hot, but not so hot you cannot drink it. Then just drink your sore throat away! If you are rushed for time then you could use a store bought blackcurrant juice drink such as Ribeana, which works just as well. The soothing is quite long lasting but depending on how bad your sore throat/laryngitis is you may need to have more than one mug. (YOU CAN HAVE AS MANY AS YOU NEED AS IT IS NOT MEDICINE BASED)."
[YEA] 07/10/2012: Mary from Toronto, Canada: "I read a lot of feedback about the benefits of cayenne pepper for sore throat on this website and I'm happy to say I tried gargle couple of times a day with black pepper instead, and for my surprise it works as well. It took me about one day for sore throat and 3 for tonsils, no need for antibiotics or other medication."
[YEA] 08/21/2007: Cheska from Dahab, Egypt: "This is the most amazing cure! when i got throat infections they would then travel into my lungs and then only antibiotics would cure it, but recently my homeopath told me to make a cup of very strong black tea (2 teaspoons of tea in 2/3 cup of boiling water) then add 1/3 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice, when it has cooled a little gargle half the cup, try keep gargling each mouthful for a long time and as deep in your throat as possible then spit all of it out down sink. repeat with other half of cup a few hours later and then again with a fresh cup a few hours after that, you will see the sore throat disappear!"
[YEA] Amber from Pleasantville, NJ: "Blackberries mildly stop the pain of sore throat but not all the way. it works if you have mild pain in the throat."
