YOUR HEALTHWhy cider vinegar can be a good medicine
At the first sign of a sore throat reach for the cider vinegar as it has the power to kill germs and viruses.
Try putting two tablespoons in a cup or glass and fill it with cold water. Use it to gargle three or four times a day and before bed and you shouldn’t suffer for very long.
Add clear honey if you prefer a sweeter taste.
For young children who might struggle to gargle take a piece of lint folded to fit around the front of the child’s neck and plunge it into a third of a pint of warm water to which two tablespoons of cider vinegar have been added.
Squeeze it out and apply to the throat. The cider vinegar draws out the toxins.
