I wouldn't take antibiotics unless absolutely necessary. Strep does not meet that criteria for me.

salt water gargles, ACV (braggs), sinus rinses, steam, vaporizer, herbal thyme (also had upper respiratory troubles)...
my sinuses actually got better, but as they drained, my cough got worse and it settled deep in my chest. was causing me too much shortness of breath, fatigue and had a wheeze (I have no history of asthma or respiratory struggles). I decided to take them to kill off any bacteria before I ended up too far behind the 8 ball with either a pneumonia or having preterm issues.
if I wasn't prego, I'd still be chugging along the homeopathic route...
