I only remember having strep throat once in my life but oh my I will never forget it. It wasn't too long after we started out on our health journey. I had recently signed up for the School of Natural Healing Courses and had done quite a few of the assignments. I had never had such a sore throat in my life I did all the usual things plenty of water, Orange juice, etc. but it didn't help a bit. After a day or two, wondering what the heck was going on and what I was going to do to get rid of this awful sore throat, I noticed that I had white spots on the back of my throat. I realized that it was a tell tale sign of strep throat, I also knew that strep throat wasn't something that you messed around with and that it didn't just eventually got better like most sore throats. It needed strong treatment! So what did I do? I of course called my Mom.
She had recently borrowed a few of my School of Natural Healing Videos and I told her I thought I remembered David Christopher teaching about what can take care of strep throat in about 24 hours. She found the video where he talked about it and gave the recipe below. I of course had all of the simple ingredients and so I made some up and took it faithfully. My strep throat had gotten pretty bad so it did take a couple days of taking the hot honey (what we affectionately started calling it) before my throat was completely better. But I got better, just from simple ingredients I had in my pantry. I didn't need antibiotics and when the kids started complaining of a sore throat I immediately started giving them some and it nipped it in the bud. It didn't get near as bad as mine did and they were better within 24 hours. Since then we haven't ever had strep throat again but we have used the Hot Honey recipe for other things. When the kids were younger and couldn't swallow capsules I would make up a less potent version when they got a really tough bug they liked the sweet taste and would usually take some and every time it helped to get rid of the bug. Note that I have heard raw honey can be given to children under one year old but even though I used raw honey I stilled didn't give this to my babies under one. After they were one I didn't think twice about giving it to them. Please choose what works best for you and study up on it. Also did you know that 4 cloves of garlic is like one adult dose of penicillin! Ryan is allergic to penicillin and quite possibly some of the kids (although I wouldn't know for sure, most of them have never had an antibiotic) but they are not allergic to garlic. I hope that this recipe can bless your family as much as it has mine.
1-4 Tablespoons of Honey
1/8-1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Stir ingredients all together in a small bowl. Take about 1/2 a teaspoon ever half hour or as desired. For sore throats be sure to let the mixture sit for a few minutes on the back of the throat, do not wash down with liquid. The Cayenne helps bring blood to the area for healing the garlic helps heal quickly and the honey holds it all together and also contains healing properties when raw.
