So, I thought I would write about the home-made "cures" that people believe will help them get better when they are feeling sick.
- For me, I go with the traditional bowl of chicken soup. The chicken soup I eat probably only makes me feel better psychologically, but then again, when I was growing up, this is what my mom served me when I was sick, so it's logical that I continue to eat the soup as an adult.
- One of my coworkers said while growing up, her mom would soften some butter with sugar, salt, and pepper. It's a paste texture and you were to eat a couple of teaspoons. Then later have some honey.
- Another coworker said when she had a sore throat as a kid, her mom would make her gargle baking soda and water.
- A friend of mine suggested to boil onion peel, garlic, lemon to make a tea out of it. When the tea is ready add some honey.
