I just took my daughter to the doctor yesterday to find out she has strep. So both my kids are on antibiotics. Well the price for doctors are just do expensive, it's kids first & by time mom's sick, well she has to find cheap ways to a cure. Well long story short my throat was so swollen I couldn't really eat and it hurt like the dickens to drink so I bought some lemon juice and drink mine straight. I had read that lemon juice is great for curing sore throat, and bad breath plus it is an effective non chemical cleaning agent in some cases (never tried it myself). In less than four hours the swelling is completely gone and the soreness is reduced dramatically. I highly recommend this to people who are like me and really can't get to the doctor or who just prefer to avoid doctors. In less severe cases I have used pickled juice to sooth soreness to lol but I don't know if there is any really proof it helps ;)!
I usually do not post to these things but I was recently diagnosed with strep throat and I have been miserable! I am on antibiotics and sore throat meds plus ib profren for pain and still no relief. So I am up at my house in the middle of the night trying to think of anything and I see lemon juice in the kitchen so I squirt the juice in a big glass add some water and start sipping it for about a hour. It stings the first couple drinks but gets better the longer you drink and now I'm here with no throat pain and finally relief!
So if anyone needs a natural remedy for strep throat, lemon juice and water will give you almost immediate relief!!
I may only be 11 but i have strep throat and it's really painful, so i was trying to find a temporary cure to the pain, and i tried this water with lemon and honey, and it worked! whoever invented this cure is trul brilliant!
