Sadly, the ACV-cayenne throat potion experiment died a premature death. I gargled a mere three gulps yesterday afternoon before caving. With flames consuming my tongue, I did the only reasonable thing a girl in my situation could do. I ate some ice cream. It cooled the burn and numbed my throat. All better. Then I resorted to evil, chemical-full drugstore Ricola knockoffs to keep my throat numb.
Dr. R., with all due respect, you’re really great at relieving my back and carpal tunnel pain, but I’m passing on your cayenne pepper concoctions in the future.
