home remedies for sore throat

throat that is burning and itchy may be a symptom of the common cold or a more serious illness, such as mononucleosis or measles. To rule out more serious illnesses, consult a doctor. If it’s OK with your physician, try home remedies and over-the-counter treatments to help reduce the severity of a common sore throat, including soothing foods that are easy to swallow.

Incorporating garlic into your meals, or taking garlic supplements in capsule form, may help reduce the duration and severity of a sore throat because it acts as a natural antiseptic and antibiotic, says Dr. Eleonore Blaurock-Busch, Ph.D. in “The Doctors Book of Home Remedies.” Chopping up garlic and stir-frying it with vegetables or adding it to soups may help heal a sore throat more quickly. If you do not like the taste of garlic, taking 15 grains of garlic oil capsules six times a day may be effective, says Blaurock-Busch.

If a sore throat is causing pain when swallowing, eat foods that are not irritating to the throat, such as gelatin. Gelatin is available in a variety of flavors at the grocery store and may provide nutrients to the body without irritating the throat. Gelatin is cool and slippery, so it will slide down the throat with minimal pain. If you are a diabetic or have food allergies, consult your doctor before eating flavored gelatin.

Chicken or Vegetable Broth
If eating is difficult because your throat is so sore, drink chicken broth or vegetable broth to provide your body with vitamins and nutrients while soothing your throat at the same time. Taking slow sips of warm chicken broth may help soothe an irritated throat. If the throat is so sore that you are unable to open your mouth, drinking chicken broth through a straw may help.
