I am suggesting EC readers try horseradish for treating laryngitis. I remembered it being suggested years ago, and I noticed it wasn't on the list of remedies yet. I'm using as pure of horseradish as I can find, without all the mayo and salad dressings, etc.. I am taking "Bubbies" Prepared Horseradish. Ingredients: horseradish, water, white vinegar, pure cane sugar, salt, mustard oil. I believe it is helping. It is fairly hot, but not crazy hot...so good luck, and soon you will be talking again!
