Soothe a sore throat with an ancient remedy: Honey’s use dates back to the days of Hippocrates, who recommended honey for overall health.
Try a spoonful of honey for a sore throat, or add one to your tea for a soothing beverage. Honey is also a natural antibiotic. And remember, honey should not be fed to children younger than 18 months. Those who are pregnant or nursing should consult a physician before use.
