2. An Apple (Cider Vinegar) a Day Keeps Infection Away
Strep throat is a very painful condition that also leaves you with a fever. While it often runs its course after a week or so, left alone it can cause complications—such as ear infections and even rheumatic fever that can affect major organs, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Natural Society recommends a number of natural ways to fight back against strep, including gargling some apple cider vinegar diluted in a warm glass of water. The website recommends 1 to 3-teaspoons of vinegar per 8-ounces of water. You can even sip the diluted solution throughout the day to get the added health benefits of the apple cider vinegar.
