[YEA] greetings to all and god bless. a few weeks ago i was starting to get laryngitis. my throat was starting to hurt and i was losing my voice. i was drinking apple cider so i added lemon to distilled water and it seemed to stop the progress, i kept drinking water with a squeezed lemon and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. the pain stopped but then i started coughing persistently a dry cough. i had no cough medicine nor honey. so i remembered reading that olive oil was a good cough stopper. so i went to my kitchen and i drank 2 tablespoons and went to sleep. and i slept peacefully thru the night w/o coughing once. now in the morning when i woke up. it started again. so again i drank 2 tablespoons again. i then started experiencing again a copious cough but for my surprise this time i was coughing with phlegm. the coughing lasted about 30 mins. it was serving me as an expectorant also. it cleared me up and no more coughing.
