I grew up with natural remedies. We don't go to the doctor for some minor health problems. We always try natural or herbal remedies first for a while and sometimes for as long as we can manage. Going to the doctor is somewhat a last resort. Blame it to the bad health care system of the Philippines and our poverty.
I also grew up eating semi-ripe papaya dipped in vinegar/salt mixture. This is what we usually eat when we have sore throat or tonsillitis. It always work. We also eat this for snacks.
Yesterday, I found some papayas in Walmart and on an impulse I bought one because I miss eating papaya dipped in vinegar/salt mixture. No, I don't have sore throat or tonsillitis. The papaya that I got tasted so good that I eat to my heart's content.
