Most people have busy lives and little time to prepare drinks that will help them soothe a sore throat. That usually ends up with the horrible idea of carrying around easy things like cough drops, which only soothe the throat momentarily. Most people don’t know that most restaurants tend to have all of the ingredients that will help soothe a sore throat. People also have little knowledge of how easy they are to find or carry around. Also, the last thing someone should dare to do is drink anything cold or iced.
I’ll repeat it again. It is vital to remember that when there’s a sore throat involved, nothing cold should be consumed during that time. It’s kind of like scraping your knee, then having someone with a flu cough on it. Yup, completely pointless. But, I see people drink iced or cold drinks when they have a sore throat only to complain later on about how much their throat burns. I have to deal with listening to the same people whine about how it’s been a week, and how they still have a sore throat. Listen and learn, because that will only prolong the process of healing.
Having hot water with lemon/lime is always good for you because warm water with lemon/lime always soothes and aids the digestive system. Honey adds flavor and carries all of the good benefits people need to soothe a sore throat. This will make the healing process for a sore throat go by way faster. If you don’t believe it, test it out.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Hot or room-temperature water
Tips: What if there’s no available honey? What if there’s no hot water? Bummer, but guess what? Lemon/lime with warm water will do just fine. When I have a sore throat I like to carry around cut lemons/lime in a Ziploc bag. Also, every time I go to Starbucks, I grab a few honey packets for emergency days like these. I’ll explain later why it’s very beneficial to drink water with lemon/lime throughout the day.
