Sore throat, something that shouldn't be taken for granted. Not many people pay attention when it comes to an ordinary sore throat, Most people would choose to just buy an over the counter medicine. They would buy something they've heard or seen on TV or something that they've been using for years, believing that it would give them relief, I have nothing against medications for most of them are effective. although i just want to share some things that can actually help soothe and cure sore throat without taking any medications. It's cheap and whats important is, it is very effective.
a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or calamansi and one teaspoon of honey. Add all the ingredients in a hot water but better to let it cool a bit before taking it. This honey tea will give an instant relief to a painful sore throat.
If you feel the itchiness and burning sensation, then you can try the licorice tea, you can easily get a licorice tea in any supermarket this is effective in an instant relief in sore throat. Just don't drink too much, it may cause high blood pressure so, just sip for an instant relief and that's it.
Try not to speak as much as possible, relax your throat.
Just imagine yourself working 24 hours and with no sleep. You became unproductive and useless as well. It's the same with our throat. If you continue to talk you only hurting yourself more.
These maybe very simple tips, but these are very effective. So the next time you have a sore throat try to follow these first, but if symptoms persist consult your doctor.
