A little over a week ago I began having a sore throat. It then grew into coughing (especially at night and when I first woke up) as well as a headache in the evenings. I thought I had a cold (as it turns out it was Chronic Sinusitis according to my Doctor). I tried drinking lots of fluids, eating chicken noodle soup, lots of teas, cough drops, Robitussin CF…everything I could think of to no avail. Then I read about drinking a “Guggle Muggle” before bed. I actually read it in a book of mine, not online, but the link I gave is the same thing. I used the citrus version.
Mix the juice of:
With 1 tablespoon honey and 1 ounce of liquor (something in the 70-80 proof range will do). Heat the substance in a sauce pan and drink it down before bed and it will get rid of your cold.
Now, I will say it didn’t fully help me, but as I mentioned before, I didn’t have a cold but rather Chronic Sinusitis. It does seem like a pretty good remedy for a cold though, and I did sleep through the whole night which is much better than I had been doing prior.
I thought it was putrid when I tried the Guggle Muggle using Jim Beam whiskey, it was much better using Captain Morgan’s rum instead.
