This thing that’s been kicking around in my chest for the past week really came full force this morning, so I stayed home to rest. But I felt awful. And the medicine I tried last night did nothing to help, so I thought I’d check out some home remedies online.
This one sounded the least terrible and I actually had all the neccessary ingredients in stock:
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons water
As you can tell from the video, it isn’t exactly the smoothest concoction I’ve ever drank but what you can’t tell from the video is that about 15 minutes later, it worked!
Most of my congestion went away during the day, my throat was soothed and my coughing lessened. It didn’t cure me, but it made the day a lot more bearable than I think it would have been without it.
Screw you Robitussin!
