I was stuck with my annual throat problem recently, last time to some people's pleasure I had no voice for about 4 weeks so when the symtoms reappeared I was in a panic.
My Homeopathic friend, Rochelle Marsden, suggested Manuka Honey and Sambucol which is Black Elderberry Extract,so as I value her opinion off I trotted to stock up my medicine chest with these two products.
The Manuka Honey I know from past experience is an amazing healer for many problems and I started taking spoonsful throughout the day. The Sambucol syrup is just delicious and I had to limit myself to spoonsful although I could have swigged the whole bottle.
I was so relieved when within a week my voice had returned to almost normal so these products will be always on my list for emergencies of this nature.
