[YEA]  02/25/2007: Ani from Montrose, CA: "I slept over at my friend's house and I woke up with a sore throat. It was so bad I couldn't even swallow my own spit. I felt really sick and when I got home I slept for 12 hours and just whined the whole time. I finally found this site and my dad took me to Ralphs to get ACV and Cayenne Pepper. I'm using it now and its helping me. To tell the truth, I don't like the taste very much but it is helping and I want it to go away so I can go to school tomorrow."


[YEA]  02/13/2007: Carol from Elmwood Park, NJ: "Sunday I awoke with the most painful sore throat of my entire life. I couldn't swallow at all. Talking was painful. Sunday I bought an OTC spray Chloraseptic for my throat. Worked a little and then not at all. By Monday morning, I was in complete agony!!! Then I found this website... I followed the remedy of the sore throat tea. I boiled about 12 oz water and added capful of ACV, large heaping tablespoon of honey, 1/2 lemon squeezed and 1/4 tsp of Cheyenne pepper. Immediately with the first cup it soothed my sore throat and I was able to swallow again. I let the hot liquid lay in my throat for a few long seconds before swallowing. The pain came back after about an hour and I made more tea. Altogether I had about 4 cups throughout the day. It is now Tuesday morning and the pain is almost completely gone!!! I can swallow today! WOW!!, that's amazing to work that quick and that great. It's only been 24 hours and I can swallow without that terrible knife pain in my throat! Thank you Earth Clinic for this website! I will recommend you to everyone. Thank you"

I couldn't even talk. Out of desperation I tried this, and was very skeptical because nothing ever works for me and usually when I gargle stuff I gag really bad. Well, I did gag but I gargled twice within the hour and I can already talk! Hopefully it will be pretty much gone by tomorrow, thank you so much for this! "

[YEA]  01/11/2007: Sheri from Scarborough, Ontario Canada: "I TRIED A FEW OF YOUR REMEDIES FOR SORE THROAT. I TRIED THE REMEDY OF CAYENNE WITH WATER, GARGLING IT EVERY 15 MINUTES. HOWEVER IT WAS TOO HOT FOR ME TO CONTINUE PAST THE FIRST TRY. THEN I DECIDED TO TRY THE REMEDY OF WATER WITH ACV... AND IT WORKED WONDERS, MY SORE THROAT VANISHED WITHIN A FEW DAYS. I THEN RECOMMENDED IT TO MY FAMILY WHEN THEY CAME DOWN WITH A BAD SORE THROAT THAT HAD LASTED FOR MORE THEN A WEEK. THEY TRIED IT ALSO AND TO THEIR AMAZEMENT, IT WORKED IN A FEW DAYS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THIS REMEDY. I ALSO HAVE HEARD ACV IS GOOD FOR WEIGHT LOSS, I INTEND TO TRY THIS IN THE FUTURE FOR THIS REASON."


[YEA]  12/31/2006: Laurie from Corona, CA: "I got sick Christmas Day and Could not talk. My throat was on fire it felt like it was closing up and I couldn't hardly swallow. I used the cayenne pepper remedy and it was still real bad. I got thirsty after all that hot pepper gargling so I drank some ice cold water which I thought was going to make it worse. Almost immediately my sore throat went away and it never returned. My son 15 yrs old got sick with a sore throat the next day and couldn't hardly swallow. I told him to try the cold water and his throat stopped hurting also, but it started hurting again hours later so we're going to repeat the water and gargle with cayenne pepper and APV remedy. This is much cheaper that all the medication I use to buy every time one of my 4 kids gets sick. I love this site, I hope you stay around forever! Laurie"


[YEA]  12/23/2006: Natasha from New Zealand: "Cayenne & apple cider vinegar in hot water with a dash of honey relieved the pain of my sore throat almost instantly. Will keep it up for the rest of the day and hopefully it will not come back."

[YEA]  12/15/2006: Tina from Helena, AL: "Hi There. I ran across this website the other night as I was searching the internet in search of a natural approach to cure a sore throat that was so advanced that my tonsils were red and looked blistery and I could hardly swallow. It was very painful. I ran across the recommendation for the Cayenne pepper gargle but then saw that if I added ACV to this that I could drink it and it would cure my sinuses also which I have had a problem with for years and had a discharge of mucous every morning that was almost a reddish-brown color and tons of pressure in my head and had been taken Advil cold and sinus for it. I began drinking it yesterday morning and still did the Cayenne pepper and water gargle last night. My throat is already cleared up and I believe my sinuses are beginning but I am not sure what is happening with my sinuses. It seems to me like I am coughing up alot of stuff that has probably been there for while and I noticed that my mucous is now a light yellow color. My nose is also stuffy and I feel like I am literally coughing up stuff out of my chest that I didn't even know was there (lol). I am still drinking this little mixture today and will continue to as I believe that what is happening is that I am healing and that all of this that has been there is beginning to come out and I can tell because although my mucous is not clear yet and is very light yellowish, it is not brown/reddish which says something (lol). Despite all of this (The stuffy nose and coughing up mucous) I seem to feel great with a very high energy level and no pressure in the head causing it to ache. So I will let you know the final result and am very grateful for this remedy and this wonderful website and will be consulting it regularly for my health concerns and my clients."


[YEA]  08/14/2006: Natalie from Carmel, IN: "I have a cold that started two days ago and was beginning to really suffer from sore throat and loss of voice. I made a tea of acv and cayenne pepper (non-organic grocery store kind) and sipped two mugs w/in 20 minutes last evening. By the time I went to bed, my throat no longer hurt and this morning I am able to speak more clearly. I know from experience that my colds last quite a long time and this wonderful tea has reduced my sick time. In fact, I didn't get to the "feel worse before you feel better" part! I will continue sipping throughout the day for good measure. Thanks for the great, healthy help!"


[YEA]  07/06/2006: Ani from Ontario, Canada: "Well i'd been struggling with some form of tonsillitis for over a month. Viral (not strep since two swab tests came back negative, though only AFTER i had already taken an entire bottle of Penicillin!). It became so bad this week that i could hardly swallow. I'd never seen my tonsils so swollen, they were covered in white stuff and the doctor pointed out they were secreting puss - eeeuu! Well I made a tea using hot water, a couple spoons of apple cider vinegar and about 1/3 - 1/2 tspn of cayenne pepper. All symptoms are COMPLETELY gone after only 2 days of drinking this once or twice a day. REMARKABLE! I will drink this in a more diluted form on a daily basis as it gave me energy and makes me feel great in general"


[YEA]  06/15/2006: Ed from Ocoee, fl: "First time I have ever been to the Earth Clinic site, and as I had a terrible sore throat and the beginnings of the Flu, I thought I'd try anything. I tried gargling with ACV and Cayenne it took care of it immediately, could not believe anything would work that fast. The next day I woke up with the Flu. I tried the ACV drink and without taking anything else, the Flu was gone in two days. Truly amazing! I have told everyone about the site and my cure. Most impressive - Thanks"


[YEA]  05/08/2006: Diane from PA: "I developed swollen lymph nodes inside my throat - right one was so swollen I could feel it through the outside of my neck and this all developed in 2 days. My doctor is on vacation and I remember hearing something about vinegar so I looked it up and wound up mixing straight apple cider vinegar (store brand) and McCormick Cayenne Pepper powder in a glass and gargled 3 times. The pain was significantly reduced for me and now I am having a hot cup of Irish Breakfast Tea with honey and lemon juice. I plan to keep going with the cayenne and vinegar."


[YEA]  05/04/2006: Steve : "This hit me last Sunday, as I was exhausted, for no reason. Then I woke up Mon. with a slight sore throat, that got worse later in the day. Tues. it hit me like a freight train. I had a horrible sore throat that went all through my neck up to my ear. There wasn't a spot on me that didn't hurt to the touch. Every joint ached. My teeth even hurt. I started taking my wife's ACV on Tues.. Yesterday I put in a little red pepper. Last night I woke up in a cold, thick sweat. Today I feel 100% better with only a mild sore throat and no aches. I am still very weak though, I don't what this was, but I'm sure it was some type of flu. The guys at work gave me this and they went to the Dr. so I'll ask them. Thanks for the tips!!!"


[NAY]  04/02/2006: Kristin from Dallas, TX: "Sorry guys I tried the ACV and the Cayenne Pepper mixed together and diluted down with some water and had no success as of yet. Then, out of desperation, I did a straight shot of the AVC and rinsed with water, still no results. I'll keep trying and see how the day goes!"

[YEA]  Julia from Santa Ana: "This is a fantastic combo. My throat felt immediately better and I am now highly energized. Still spitting out mucous 10 minutes after finishing the drink. I had no idea there was so much mucous in my throat (couldn't feel it). Yikes. I will continue to drink this as a daily health tonic, I think."

[YEA]  08/15/2007: Lynn from Waterville, Maine: "I learned about raspberry tea and started using a cup of warm raspberry tea with 1/2tsp of apple cider vinegar to gargle with and spit back out. I freaked when I saw the gunk it was nasty. If caught in time it gives a nice relief of a sore throat. From time to time I just gargle to keep from getting a build up of gunk. Especially during allergy seasons. I hope this helps as it did for me."


ACV, Baking Soda, Cayenne

[YEA]  07/11/2009: Paul from Melbourne, Australia: "Yes the cayenne pepper works wonders. so does baking soda because of its alkalinity. (bacteria love an acidic environment) But I highly recommend putting a roll of toilet paper in the freezer for when you need it, and boy will you need it. I felt like i was giving birth to a marine distress flare on the toilet.

Also something that is of "enormous" help. WARMTH. keep the neck area warm as possible with a large towel. and sleep with it on all night. you'll be amazed at what a difference it makes. White blood cells in your saliva love love loves warmth, and they are more active in a warm environment.

SO WHAT WORKS FOR ME. First gargle apple cider to quickly remove the flem to expose the bacteria or virus, then hit it with baking soda. the baking soda makes the infected area alkaline. then hit it with the cayenne pepper. then wrap up the neck area with a towel and sleep with it on. If that doesn't work, I'll be dammed !"

05/15/2010: Sundrop881 from Rockford, Illinois replies: "I would be careful about using the baking soda as a great uncle of mine used it almost daily as an anti-acid and eventually it burned holes in his stomach.

I had a sore throat. I just took my tonic (composed of lemon juice, tomato juice, grated garlic and some hot sauce) with 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper and swallowed when I was on my back. I took about 3-4 sips and now my sore throat is gone and I feel like a human being. Other than my stomach is a little jittery, I feel Okay. My nose is still plugged, but I am working on it with a saline nose spray. Thanks, I can finally do some work now."
