heres a post i made a while ago when arc was suffering,
sorry to hear your poorly,
if you can get or already have
squeeze the lemon into a large mug ,removing the pips.
Peel then finely grate a chunk of ginger into the mug
fill mug with boiling water
add a dollop of honey to taste
infuse until brewed then drink.
the lemon will give you vitamin c which will help battle the cold you have
the ginger will soothe your throat and ease any soreness
the honey makes the lemon bareable .
