The next morning, my throat didn't feel so hot. I realized what happened!!! Immediately, I decided to grab my edible iodine drops, put it in some water and gargled!!! SICKNESS GONE by the evening!!!
Granted, I'm never sick for too long, but this definitely helped! I was also wondering if gargling salt water would have helped. It dawned on me! It must be because of the iodine that's usually found in salt! Why don't we have iodine most of our salt nowadays?
...that's a talk that probably belongs elsewhere! :)
GARGLE WITH IODIZED SALT!!!!
