Lemon Juice For Cough, Sore Throat

Last week's health tip (lemon juice deodorant) generated more feedback than ever before. Lemon juice really is a great deodorant so try it - especially if you're worried about the negative health effects of using regular deodorants over many years.

I mentioned last week that lemon juice also stops cough and sore throat and many people wanted to know how.

For cough or sore throat mix the juice from one lemon 50/50 with room temp or warm water. No sugar or honey. Sip slowly. Do this several times throughout the day, i.e. use 3 or 4 lemons throughout the day.

To help this work better and to hopefully stop the cough or sore throat from worsening you should cut out all junk food, sweets, sodas, heavy and hard to digest foods (like big slabs of meat), coffee and alcohol.

Consume simple, bland things like soups, stews, steamed veges, fresh vege juices, plain water, etc. And take it easy - don't overwork, overexercise or get stressed out. This gives your body a much greater chance of re-balancing itself quickly.

All the best and as usual let me know if you have questions about this or anything on the sites.
