Ginger works really well for sore throats and coughs. My family uses the following ways:
– Drink ‘ginger juice’ or ‘instant salabat’. (Salabat is a not a brand name, but what the drink is called in the Philippines. ) This is a powdered, hot drink mix that you can find in Asian stores and it gives your throat a nice ‘heat’. It has sugar in it, so if you don’t want that you could probably mimic the powder by mixing ground ginger with black pepper in hot water.

I think the best alternative remedy is to use the GINGER instead of the red cayenne. It burns nothing but your throat. An old man who owns a herbal supplements store told me the secret recipe of the World’s-Fastest-Sore-Throat-Remedy:
– 3 tablespoons of ginger paste *
– 1 cup of water
– 2 tablespoons of honey
Boil up the water, then mix it with the ginger paste and keep mixing for 5 minutes. Add the honey, then drink the mixture whenever you feel that you can stand the heatness of the water. Do the same thing for 5 to 8 times a day and I guarantee you that the pain will go away 100% as you drink the second cup, and by the last cup the sore-throat will vanish.
* Ginger paste can be difficult to find in the US. It’s not hard to make your own at home (great for cooking). As an alternative, finely grate some fresh ginger.
