This is not medical advice. I'm not telling you what to do. I'm telling you what I did to feel better when I woke up this morning with a sore throat. First of all, I haven't had a sore throat in over 8 years. Yesterday, on my way home from the station, I felt a little tickle happening in the throat region, that was unusual for me. I've had a few of what I call "crunchies" here and there over the years, but I'll throw whole food at it: green juice, ginger, herbal tea infusions, "mama juice", a whole garlic clove, honey, garlic honey, etc. Was it not, Hippocrates who said,
Let food be thy medicine and let medicine be thy food.
For the past couple of days I've had a little cough and a runny nose. Normally, I'd suck it up, and do my thing - but this year, nothing is normal. Instead, I'm playing "Cold, Flu, or COVID," the worst game ever.
