When my throats sore, I boil water, half a lemon and honey in the same pot. Then drank it while it was still warm. My sore throat was gone by the morning.
I have found the easiest, quickest, and most effective way to get rid of a sore throat. You make your self hot tea or hot chocolate (as hot as you can stand) and drink it. As well as that eat potato chips. It helps alot. Watching TV while using this trick helps get your mind off of your throat
Boil water for tea and instead of tea leaveas add some smashed ginger,powered cinnamon and cloves and boil it to half.Add two spoons of honey to it and sip it slowly.Tie a scarf around the throat.Gives relief very soon.
Boil 1 cup of Milk
1 tbl spoon of Butter in the milk while still boiling. Mix together.
Insert the ButterMilk in a cup and insert a herbal chamomile tea bag inside mix and let it sit for a few minutes til the tea bag is disolved and milk changed color.
Put some honey in it, mix and enjoy. Its good for ur throat.
Mix 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of honey together with a half teaspoon of black ground pepper, after you have this mixed up, refrigerate for 30 minutes and drink small protions at a time, in no time, your throat will feel amazing
I have a couple of remedies, but my favorite is boiling water for tea, and then steeping crushed red pepper and ginger in it instead of tea (I do this by wrapping the red pepper and ginger in a coffee filter). Don't let it get too strong for your own heat/spice tolerance. I also leeave a cinnammon stick in the water. Then, I add tons of honey, a little sugar (to taste) and some fresh squeezed lemon juice. I leave a little bit of lemon rind in the water after squeezing out the juice. I breathe in the vapors while everything is steeping, then I drink this 'tea,' preferably in the early stages of the sore throat. I go to bed right away. When I wake up, I'm usually OK. It's a way of fending off a full-blown sore throat when you know it's on the way.
For a sore throat I have always Gargled Listerine as far back as i could without swallowing it..... and the next morning It would be gone
Wrap 100% silk scarf or something around your throat and wear it as long as you need it
Soak 3 tbsp of freshly grated ginger in a pint of hot water for 5-8 mins. Strain and drink before bedtime. Add lemon juice if sore throat is accompanied by chesty cough. Drinking the ginger infusion throughout the day and at bedtime for 1-2 days will completely cure your sore throat. You will see a noticable difference after 1 cup. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, anti-viral painkiller and mild sedative. Lemon reduces the production of mucus so is helpful for the cough.
This is an old Russian Remedy. HEat milk with one tablespoon of butter and one tablespoon of honey. Then drink it while it is still very hot. This will coat your throat making it feel better, and the heat will make swelling go down. this is not only effective but also very tastey.
