Why does my throat have white spots? by Connie b. Dellobuono
Answer by Connie b. Dellobuono:
Eat cilantro and oregano (both are excellent detoxifiers) . Avoid sugar. I will also drink water with 1/2 tsp of Apple cider vinegar. And a mouthwash of hydrogen peroxide and eucalyptus oil and a drop of tea tree oil. Aloe vera juice, freshly prepared with apple juice can also help in healing the tissues.
