What can I do to help myself with RAW FOODS? I likely have strep throat, and I'm severely fatigued from lack of rest over the last few weeks.
I can not afford to waste money on "doctors" and wouldn't anyway... anything natural I can do??

A couple of times in the past, I have had a bad sore throat that lasted for a few days in a row that wouldn't go away. I pressed a clove of garlic into a tablespoon of honey and swallowed it three times a day. I was better in a couple of days.
Don't know if I had strep, but it sure helped me.

Thank you, will promptly go try it! Can't possibly do anything WORSE than make me smell like garlic (which I don't mind... only my friends do ;) )

Oregano oil can stop infections. It tastes very strong, but it works in my experience. My daughter took a few drops 3 or 4 times a day for an ear infection. She also used a very small amount of mullein/garlic oil in her ear. Just a drop on a q tip.( I worry about gunking up the inside of her ear. )
For sore throat I drink warm lemon water with a spoon of honey and a pinch of cayenne pepper in it.
Gargling with salt water can help, too.
I hope you feel better soon!
