Recipe for Salty Relief

The reasons why gargling with salt-water is beneficial for a sore throat and a cold, as well as the accompanying throat-pain of both, are:  salt prevents bacteria from growing, and salt relieves inflammation by drawing moisture out of swollen tissues.  My recipe is two measuring-teaspoons of kosher salt desolved in one ice-tea glass of water (if you're not from The South, that would be a highball glass, or a 12-ounce glass).  For more information click here and click here...and I hope if you have a cold like me, that gargling with salt-water helps you like it does me, and that you feel better soon.
