Sore Throat

When you get sore throat, your first reflex should always be to stop it in the track before it gets the better of you and makes you sick. At times natural remedies are all you need to treat a sore throat. So before you go running to a doctor or reach out for those OTC medicines, try soothing your throat using these tried and tested home remedies as mentioned below. These remedies are safe and natural as well as effective. Like they say, “Prevention is better than cure”, so regardless of the causes of sore throat, try these remedies that can help manage your illness from the begining.

1.Honey- If you are feeling mild uneasiness in swallowing the food, maybe, you are about to get sore throat. Worry not! The remedy to tackle the problem at the very onset of it is easily available in your kitchen. Honey is enriched with medicinal properties and is an age-old remedy believed to soothe the condition naturally and quickly. Its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties work to lessen inflammation and swelling of the internal glands whilst fighting against infections. To combat the problem of sore throat, just add 2-3 tea spoons of Dabur Honey in lukewarm water and sip it through the day. You may consume honey with herbal tea or with a warm glass of milk too before bedtime for better results.


2. Suck garlic- Agreed raw garlic has a pungent & pathetic taste that results in emanating the foulest of odours but trust us when we say there is no better remedy than sucking a clove of garlic when it comes to relieving sore throat. Garlic has allicin, a compound that can kill the bacterium that causes strep and fight germs that cause pain and irritation in the throat. Place a clove of garlic in each cheek and suck it like a cough drop. Occasionally bite it to release the allicin. Try this remedy at least once a day to get rid of sore throat.


3. Gargle with salt water- Gargling with salt water to cure sore throat is not an old wives tale. Infact it is one of the best remedies that you can reach out to in case of a painful and sore throat. Salt in the water helps decrease the swelling in the glands and wash away excess mucous thus relieving you of any kind of pain. Just mix a little salt in a glass of hot water and gargle 3-4 times a day. Gargles may not be recommended for children because they might swallow the salty water accidently.


4. Drink herbal teas- Herbal teas flavoured with ginger, chamomile, and tulsi etc., work as a natural remedy for sore throat. They have properties that kill bacteria and relax the muscles while working as a natural pain killer. Add teaspoon of Dabur Honey and lemon juice to your tea and you have a recipe to perfect taste and health ready for you in an instant. As an alternate to tea, you can also try Dabur Hot Sip.
