I like to use natural remedies to make people feel better whenever I can. I know there’s no substitute for real medicines when those are needed, but natural remedies are great ways to feel better and know that they’re healthy and that they aren’t going to put more drugs in your body. These remedies are particularly great for people with sore throats. Heck, even healthy people might enjoy these.
So, these are my four favorite ways to feel a bit better when the flu might have a hold of you or someone you love. Three of these remedies start with a good mug. Mine holds about 10-12 ounces of liquid.
My favorite mug. Great for drinking natural cures as well as that morning cup of coffee (or two).
Miso Soup to make you feel better
I like white miso for its sweet flavor, but any miso will work.
Also, if you don’t have green onions, tofu, or seaweed, you can still make the miso soup, it just won’t have the same flavor. But, it will still make your throat feel much better.

White miso paste is sweet and mellow – just the thing when you’re feeling under-the-weather
This is what the miso paste looks like
Gargle with warm salt water
Fill a mug with water and add 1/2 teaspoon salt. Heat in the microwave about 50 seconds. Gargle. Personally, I like to do this in a hot shower to get both the benefits of the gargling and the hot shower. And, I find gargling to be intrinsically messy, so gargling in the shower means I don’t have to clean up.

And the other thing I’d like to remind you of: ice cream heals all kinds of ailments and just makes you feel tons better! Well, it really does feel good on a sore throat.
