I have made a tea with a few pieces of chopped up ginger root.. 2 tablespoons of Apple cider vinigear (ORAGNIC) (mother) and some honey.. seems to be working very well for me. Give it a shot.
Lorraine's Tonsillitis Tea
I made a sort of "tea" with 2 tablespoons of honey, lemon juice from one wedge, pinch of salt, a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, one minced garlic clove, a dash of cayenne pepper, and boiling water (to fill a mug) for tonsillitis. Works better than anything I have ever tried before.
