Do you have a scratchy throat and feel congested? Sip some soup!
If, however, it's hard to swallow without pain, try hot chicken soup. Add pepper, garlic, curry powder or other pungent spices to thin the mucus in your mouth, throat and lungs.
Chicken soup can also pump up the level of disease-fighting white blood cells in your body.
