Sore throat is a painful, dry, burning or scratchy feeling in the throat. It may also be accompanied by cough, nasal congestion, headache.
In this article I’ll mention two remedies which will give you a relief from sore throat.
Marshmallows for Sore Throat
Marshmallows. Eat 3-4 marshmallows and you will feel instant relief in your throat.
A marshmallow is a sugar-based confection and it typically contains sugar, water and gelatin whipped to a spongy consistency. They are usually cylindrical in shape and are coated with corn starch.
Marshmallows contain gelatin which reduces irritation of the throat and gives a soothing relief within a few seconds. There is a point to be noted here. It is that this remedy just gives relief from sore throat and doesn’t cure the underlying disease which causes sore throat.
Honey, Vinegar, Lemon Juice & Cinnamon
The second remedy is a natural one and quick and easy to make.
Take a glass of hot water. Add 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons vinegar, 2 tablespoon of lemon juice and a pinch of cinnamon. Mix well. Prepare this mixture and drink it several times a day, whenever you have cold and you will experience reduced symptoms in a matter of minutes.
Honey has antioxidants and antimicrobial components and is known for its medicinal properties. Lemon Juice is rich in Vitamin C as well as has other properties.
Vinegar is actually an acidic substance but it has an alkalizing effect on the body making it alkaline. The alkaline environment is bad for growth of microbes.
Finally, cinnamon is antibacterial and hence reduce growth of bacteria. The combined effect of these help in relieving sore throat problems.
Again I repeat that though these remedies just take care of the symptoms they do not cure the underlying condition. So visit your physician in order to get a proper diagnosis and subsequent treatment for your condition.
