Soak 3 tbsp of freshly grated ginger in a pint of hot water for 5-8 mins. Strain and drink before bedtime. Add lemon juice if sore throat is accompanied by chesty cough. Drinking the ginger infusion throughout the day and at bedtime for 1-2 days will completely cure your sore throat. You will see a noticable difference after 1 cup. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, anti-viral painkiller and mild sedative. Lemon reduces the production of mucus so is helpful for the cough.
