If you are having issues with Sore Throat, an excellent remedy is to gargle with Black Tea and Salt .
1 teaspoon black tea
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
Boil some black tea in 1.25 in water. Remove from heat. Add the salt and stir. After cooling, gargle when adequately warm. I was given this remarkable remedy by my Ayurveda Guru, Vaidya Dr Krishnan Pishardy.
Thank you Sir : )
