I have a really bad sore throat and can feel a cold coming on - can anyone recommend something for it?  Lots of people say honey and lemon, but of course we have to avoid honey!  I bought some sugar-free throat lozenges and they are useless.  Any advice would be appreciated... sad

I always use Buckley's. It tastes pretty awful but it works and it doesn't have sugar or alcohol in it. I also use diet gingerale and my husband says to gargle with salt water. Good luck and I hope you feel better! Robyn

If you drink diet colas, put a little lemon juice in it. Works for me alot of times.

Pick up the corner of your table and drop it on your foot, you'll forget your throat in no time. I do it all the time. ;)

Hot orange-cinnamon tea with sweetener... mmmmmmm..... Just great for those chills and sore throat. Chicken noodle soup helps me, long on soup and short on noodles. I like to buy those 'pre-roasted, rotisserie chickens' and take all the meat off, using that for a meal. Then I take the skin, juices and bones and cover them with water and cook them in the pressure cooker for about 25 minutes. Makes GREAT chicken stock! If you do become ill Claire-Bear be sure to pay attention to your sugars. Illness can goof you up, especially if you take your meds but go back to sleep and forget to eat.

I also like old fashioned oatmeal with lots of cinnamon when I'm feeling yucky. It's a high fiber carb that takes a long time to be absorbed and the cinnamon helps with the sugar levels. Hope you're feeling better soon.
