My sore throat was hurting so bad today that I thought I might have strep throat (something I get about 2 times a year). I just seem to get it a lot. The doctor said that I tested negative, but gave me a homemade remedy that he swears by. He said his wife is German and told him to do this. It was pretty strange so I thought I'd put it on my blog.
Natural German Remedy for Sore Throat
Take an onion, slice it up and sprinkle a couple of tsps of sugar on it.
Put it in the fridge (covered).
The sugar draws the juice out of the onion. Take a tsp of onion juice. Apparently, onions are natural anti-inflammatory.
I can't take this though because onions bother Lily. So I'm getting a prescription to help numb my throat so that I can sleep tonight. So if anyone tries this, comment and tell me if it worked or not. I'm dying to know!
