Yikes! It looks like maybe there's no such thing! I have a nasty throat infection- weird, in the summer? I can't tolerate HFCS or corn syrup. Shoot, I wish someone knew something.

I have just gotten (getting) over one myself - finally went to the doc, thinking they can't do much for me but I got to the point where I couldn't swollow any pills and was having a hard time drinking - aparently I have strep throat!!! My kids have had it, not right now, but I have never had it and I have probably had it for a week before I finally went to the doc. Now I know what they put up with!!!

Thanks Molly. I was going to order the chocolate items as I really need to put on some weight and they are out of them. I will order the tart sampler for now.

St. Claire candies are good...but one warning on the cough drops--some have echinecea and a few other herbs in them. So, if you don't want to be taking those don't get them. The product I'm talking about is here: http://www.econaturalsolutions.com/site/70...oduct/TIN-OW-TH I like the candies...but they seem to make my throat sore if I eat too many of them. Acidic maybe? They are definitely worth buying, but if you are like me, too many might make a sore throat worse.

Lisa and Kate-- My recommendation is Thayer's Slippery Elm drops. This is what I use for a sore throat. Ingredients are slippery elm bark, dextrose, magnesium stearate, natural cherry flavor (you can get plain too), sucrose, vegetable stearine. Preservative, sodium, menthol, gluten, dairy free. The sweetner is corn derived. It doesn't say anything about soy, so you could ck on that. But I don't see any obvious soy on the label. See their products here: http://www.thayers.com/ They should be in any major health/natural food store.

Thank you, Molly and Kate and Jen and all!

Molly, yes, I have the peppermints (very tiny); I didn't know of their other things so I'm going to try some- thank you! Kate, I'm starting to wonder if this is strep myself although I've never had it, only my son. I now have lost my voice as well. Hoping you're feeling better. And,Jen, thank you for the Thayer's info, will check that, too!

Boy--that was the coolest growing up!

Yeah, I loved it when I was a kid, & my kids loved it when I did it with them!

It also occurs to me, OceanGirl, that you could make yourself a batch of simple syrup as a truly simple cough/throat syrup to take by the spoonful. Simple syrup is nothing more than equal parts sugar & boiling water, stirred until the sugar dissolves. We keep it on hand in a jar in the fridge, to sweeten iced tea & homemade lemonade-- & it is also the preferred food of hummingbirds, in case you have a feeder!

This is a good idea--I have always used honey and lemon juice stired together and warmed.

Oh, yes, how could I forget that! My husband used to make something for me when I had a bad cold that he called "Rheumatiz Medicine" (Beverly Hillbillies reference!??) that consisted of warmed honey, lemon juice & whiskey! Boy it made colds a lot more tolerable! I guess you'd have to be careful about the whiskey...

We call these hot toddy's in our family, and we also add hot tea to it. It cures a cold in no time flat! If you drink it when you first feel it coming on, it doesn't seem to progress. :)

Rheumatiz Medicine :lol::lol: I remember that! When I was young, we had a gas stove with a pilot light. My mom used to keep a dish of the stuff on the stove over the pilot light whenever someone in the house was sick. It would stay nicely warm there all day.

I always do honey and lemon when I have a sore throat and, until now, it has always worked.

Thanks for the info on St. Claire's - think I will have to put in an order!!! Looks like I will have to pass on the slippery elm - too much corn. But the St. Claire's looks like I can have CANDY????

Throat is much better now - second day of drugs.

Leah,

Cool crystals; I remember that-maybe I'll make myself some. Thanks everyone regarding honey and lemon-the preferred treatment of my French and Greek family. Unfortunately, I can't tolerate honey anymore (a lot of fructose in honey, I think) and right now citrus doesn't feel so good either! Gggrrrr... I'll make some simple syrup. Thank you all for your posts. Kate-glad you are feeling better!

    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better. 
    • Ok guys!   The original post was 3 years ago!  Ingredients, manufacturing methods,  labeling, etc.  may have changed during that time.  A lot of companies have really come a long way on gluten-free in the last 3-4 years.
    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
