3 Simple Natural Treatments for Sore Throat

Sore throat relief

Sore throat relief

A while ago, I wrote something about relief sore throat in natural way. Today, I will talk about another ways you can try to relief the sore throat symptoms.

I understand itchy, swollen and tender throat is not only uncomfortable. It is pretty painful to the point of having difficulty in swallowing.

A sore throat can either be caused by a viral infection usually coming with colds, flu and cough or a bacterial infection accompanied by a throbbing head.

It can also be caused by other things like allergies, infected tonsils and throat abuse like excessive shouting and even coughing!

Whatever the cause is, a sore throat is brought about by an inflamed pharynx and should receive proper treatment. Here are a few home remedies for sore throat you can try at home.

  • Saltwater. Make saltwater by mixing in salt with a cup of lukewarm water. Gargle saltwater every now and then but no more frequent than per hour. Saltwater can help in swelling reduction. I emphasized this in my previous article.
  • Raspberry Tea. You can also use raspberry tea as gargle to relieve sore throat. Simply place 2 teaspoons of dried raspberry leaves in one cup of boiling water. Let it seep for 10 minutes and strain the dried leaves. Use as a gargle.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar. Combine 8 ounces of hot water, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey. Drink the concoction while it is hot. This drink has been a very popular home remedy for sore throat across countries. You can also make a gargle by dissolving 1 teaspoon of salt in 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar and mixing it with 1 cup of warm water.

Everybody in their lifetime has once in a while suffered from the painful sore in the throat. This sometimes happens when we have cough and colds and there are times that our throats get irritated when we have too much sweets intake.

More commonly, our tonsils get inflamed when we have sore throats. In my early childhood, we were thought to gargle warm water with a pinch of salt every morning before eating or drinking anything.

Salt has been known to alleviate inflammation and with this simple procedure, sure enough, sore throat has slowly diminished. This is for the usual and simple cases when there is no underlying cause.

Oftentimes, when I know that I would soon have sore throat, I avoid drinking cold beverage and avoid eating spicy and sweet foods. Another natural way is to swallow a piece of ginger like a candy.

Ginger has a lot of healing properties that has been known to soothe pain and decrease inflammation. This does not suit me. I would rather drink a cup of hot ginger ale.

This is a powder form of ginger that is available in supermarkets. Serve a teaspoon or two in a cup of hot water and drink like tea. Often times, there is no need to add sugar.

There are a lot of natural remedies out there that will help cure the simple sore throat. But if you notice that despite these natural techniques, your sore throat keeps coming back, better consult a physician.
