Drink pineapple juice or eat a fresh cut pineapple. My great-grandmother (born in 1896) swore by this remedy for sore throats. My grandfather contracted diphtheria during an outbreak and she SWORE that pineapple juice saved his life, b/c it brought down the swelling and pain in his throat. Ever since my mom told me about this cure, whenever I or my kids get a sore throat, I juice up a few big pieces of pineapple and make them drink it. Their throats are usually better by the next day.
