Natural Remedies & Cleanses : How to Soothe a Sore Throat Naturally

November 5, 2019

So you want to soothe that discomfort of a
sore throat naturally. My name is Mark Brinson, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Physical Medicine
and Human Performance specialist. Maybe I can help you out just a little bit. When you’ve
got a sore throat, it’s one of the first signs that there’s something going wrong internally
in your body and it’s one of your body’s first defense lines. So you do want to make sure
that you’re taking care of yourself during that time and just not letting it go. Now
soothing the actual sore throat, as you know, there’s many over-the-counter products that
you can use. Even natural cough drops that are going to help, but there’s a limit to
how many times that you can take them per day because of some of the products that are
getting into your system. Some things that you can do naturally at home however, one
of the best is using a warm saltwater gargle. And I say warm, because what that’s going
to do is, its going to open the pores and allow that salt to naturally get into the
system a little bit easier. And that’s going to help to kill any bacteria that’s back there.
As well as, in addition to that, you can use zinc lozenges. Either zinc lozenges or if
you make a zinc gargle, as well, can help to significantly soothe that. But also, instead
of just soothing, they’re treating the actual problem. If you just want the relief from
it, if you use a warm tea with honey mix and maybe even a little bit of lemon, can be good
to help that as well. My name is Mark Brinson, Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Physical Medicine
and Human Performance specialist wishing you a happy, healthy and balanced day.

    the drinking tea with honey helps for awhile it makes it easyier to swallow but doesnt cure it completely but it helps it in its own way
