In the upcoming winter season, the possibility of having a sore throat will increase. Bacterial or viral infection causes discomfort, irritation and pain in the throat. There are several medications available for this but some kitchen ingredients can solve the problem too. I will tell you some best home remedies for treating a sore throat.
Gargling with Saltwater:
The easiest home remedy for treating a sore throat is gargling with saltwater. Add 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon of salt to a glass of warm water and mix well. Gargle with this salty water and spit it out. For good results, do this after every three hours. This will reduce possible swelling and keep your throat clean.
Honey consumed in its raw form, or mixed with green tea, milk or lemon juice is a very good remedy for treating throat infection. Sometimes it can be more effective than common cold medicines for reducing the soreness and providing relief from pain. This healing power is because of the antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties present in honey.It tastes better too.
Turmeric Milk:
Milk infused with turmeric is also called the golden milk by health conscious people. It is an effective concoction to treat symptoms and problems related to common cold and sore throat. This milk can relieve throat pain by bringing down swelling.
Ginger Tea
Warm beverages like tea usually provide relief to sore throats. However, adding ginger can help greatly. Ginger helps to reduce throat pain but it can also kill viruses that cause respiratory illnesses. Chamomile made from white flowers and peppermint made from mint and other herbal teas can help too.

Sore throat (pharyngitis) is super common. It is usually caused by an infection in the throat (Viral or Bacterial). Soreness in the throat may be the only symptom. In addition, you may also have:

⦿ Tiredness.
⦿ Swollen glands in your neck.
⦿ Pain when you swallow.
⦿ A hoarse voice.
⦿ A mild cough.
⦿ A high temperature (fever).
⦿ A headache.
⦿ A feeling of wanting to be sick (nausea).

We will then look at how to treat a sore throat yourself:
To help soothe a sore throat and shorten the severity of the symptoms, you can:

1) Gargle with warm, salty water (half a tea spoon of salt) (children should not try this) – one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to try this home treatment. Anybody can prepare this as we demonstrate in the video how to do it.

2) Drink plenty of water – when we have an infection our body will be fighting it and this can send the body in to overdrive. The key is to keep it hydrated and avoid dehydration as this can make us feel unwell.

3) Eat cool or soft foods – Helps create a soothing effect on the throat.

4) Warm drinks like tea and soup may also help (Avoid Hot Drinks) – Again as above, generally cooler foods are preferred but if you don’t like bananas or yogurts then a warm glass of tea or soup can do the trick.

5) Avoid smoking or smoky places – these can irritate the throat further and make your symptoms worse.

6) Suck ice cubes, ice lollies or hard sweets – but do not give young children anything small and hard to suck because of the risk of choking.

7) Rest – Helps the body fight the infection.

Consider seeing a GP/Family Doctor if:
⦿ The sore throat does not improve after a week
⦿ Often get sore throats
⦿ Worried about your sore throat – it is severe/ or you feel unwell
⦿ Have a sore throat and a very high temperature, or you feel hot and shivery
you have a weakened immune system – for example, because of diabetes or chemotherapy
A severe or long-lasting sore throat could be something like strep throat (a bacterial throat infection).
