Home Remedies For Sore Throat That Are Safe And Effective

Experiencing a sore throat makes it harder to eat, drink, sleep, talk, and generally function. Is there anything you can do that can help?

According to Cleveland Clinic, the answer is yes. There are several things you can do to alleviate your sore throat. The safe and effective ones to try include:

1. Warm and cold fluids: Drink warm drinks, such as tea or chicken soup or try cold liquids, like ice water or popsicles. It is based on your preference and what soothes your throat best. Liquids assist clear mucous membranes, keeping things flowing, and avoiding sinus infections. Warm temperatures might also decrease coughs by soothing the back of your throat. Endeavor using both warm and cold to see what works best for you.

2. Steam and humidity: Take a hot shower. When it becomes very steamy, breathe in the throat-clearing magic. Steam removes mucus and can moisturize and soothe a sore throat.

3. Rest: Rest your head on your pillow for a good hour and close your eyes. Repeat as possible. Don’t overemphasize physically resting your body and voice. But beware that lying flat can sometimes trigger swelling because of an increase in pressure at the back of your throat. Rather, try raising the bed or sitting propped up or in a chair to ease the pain and discomfort
