Hello guys,I hope you are all fine.Since its winter in most countries,I decided to share with you some easy, non-prescription remedies that can help ease soreness and make you feel better if you have a sore throat. ๐Ÿ™‚

1.Saltwater gargle

Several studies have found that gargling several times a day with warm salt water can reduce swelling in the throat and loosen mucus, helping to flush out irritants or bacteria.

(Just remember to spit the water out after gargling, rather than swallowing!)

2.Medicines
Its important to mention that Im not a doctor and I’m just sharing with you what medicines I usually take when I have a sore throat.I’m not recommending you to use them or anything,it’s up to you to decide.
I usually use some sprays,drink Anti-inflammatories & strepsils really help

The same medicines does not have the same effect on everyone.Please do consult your doctor if needed

3.Fluids

“Staying hydrated is very important, especially when you’re sick and your throat is irritated or inflamed,” Dr. Linder says
This keeps your mucous membranes moist and better able to combat bacteria and irritants like allergens, and makes your body better able to fight back against other cold symptoms.”

4.Tea

A warm cup of herbal tea can offer immediate, soothing relief for a sore throat. What’s more, non-herbal teasโ€”whether they’re made with black, green, or white leavesโ€”contain antioxidants that are thought to strengthen immunity and ward off infection.

For an extra boost, add a teaspoon of honey.

Better drink it hot ๐Ÿ™‚

5.Chicken soup

An age-old home remedy for colds, chicken soup can help soothe a sore throat, as well. “The sodium in the broth may actually have anti-inflammatory properties, and it can feel good going down,” Dr. Linder says.
Eating can also be painful and difficult with a swollen or very sore throat, so sipping some liquid nourishment will ensure that you’re getting the nutrients you need to fight off your infection

6. Mashmallows

Although there’s no hard evidence that it works,many people said that it really works
Marshmallows can help ease sore throat pain, possibly because the gelatin coats and soothes.

  1. The saltwater remedy make sense, but I question the marshmallows for a sore throat, although I suspect kids would much prefer your remedies to the drug stores prepackaged solutions. I give my grandchildren honey to soothe their coughs and that seems to work pretty well. ;:) Thanks for sharing.
