Natural Remedy for a Sore Throat

Well, hello there wellness lovers!

Can you imagine what life was like before Pinterest?!

I know I can't!

Something I've noticed lately (and love!):

Based on my own observations, it seems like the "Millenial" generation (in general), seems to be going 'back to the basics', per se, and using our grandparents' tried and true home remedies for common situations... for an array of things ranging from cleaning to gardening to natural health care.

Not only are many of our grandparents' tips + tricks generally more natural (and safer), they will also save you a ton of $$$!

I've had conversations with many friends about this, and from what I am seeing and hearing, it really does seem to be a trend. :)

Today I thought I'd share a new pin from my "Natural Health" pin board.

It's something I have yet to try, but have "pinned it away" for possible future use. And, one day when I have kids, I'm pretty sure I will be thankful to have this on hand.

"If you wake up with a sore throat, and begin to feel a cold coming on, mix hot water, 2-tablespoons honey, 2-tablespoons of vinegar, dash of cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, mix well, and drink, you will feel better within the hour! Works every time!"

Just curious... has anyone tried this yet?

I hope you are having a wonderful week. :)

Dr. Axe's Secret Detox Drink

Hello there! And happy 2013!

I'm back... :) After weeks of holiday festivities, I decided to finally update my blog. Haha... I know that many of you can relate that sometimes it's just necessary to unplug and step away from the computer.

And I did just that. ;)

Anyways, today I thought I'd share my new favorite detox drink that I've been loving lately!

I learned about it via Pinterest, of course ;) but it's a recipe by Dr. Axe.

Let me just say, it's the best way I've ever tried taking ACV by far!

And after Christmas and New Year's... this is a perfect way to detox and balance your system.


  • 1 glass of water (12-16 oz.)
  • 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar (I use Bragg's)
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 packet stevia powder (I use NuNaturals liquid drops)

  1. Blend all ingredients together. (I just mix, since I use liquid stevia there isn't a need to blend.)

Have you tried anything similar to this yet?

I'm sure you know... but let's just remember how beneficial apple cider vinegar is!

Love this infographic from one of my favorite news websites, :)

Have an excellent day!
