[Hot Water and Salt Gargle]

(I had an ear and throat ache that came in waves through the night. It was so painful that I got dressed in the middle of the night to go to the emergency room. I guess as a last ditch effort, I tried a cup of warm salt water and it worked (may have been a tablespoon of salt to a cup of water, but I do not remember). I just kept on gargling with it until I had used it up. Cleared up the problem and it did not come back.)
