Ditto with everything Mary Caine said, with the addition of drinking "vinnies", it's apple cider vinegar and honey....it's great for sore throats. I learned the hard way about echinachea....STAY FAR AWAY, STAY VERY FAR AWAY from it....it's not pretty.
Hope you'll feel better soon, bundle up stay warm, hot soup and you'll be in our prayers.
