Sore throats

 

Stress and tiredness, as well as colds and flu, can make us susceptible to sore throats. Fortunately this ailment responds exceptionally well to natural treatments, not only do they alleviate pain and discomfort, but they can also reduce inflammation in the throat.

 

Sore throats are not a illness, but a symptom of illness. The feeling of rawness or burning which begins at the back of the mouth and extends to the middle of the throat is usually caused by inflammation. When the throat is infected or otherwise irritated the body responds by sending more blood to the area. The blood carries white cells and other substances to fight the infection, these fighting substances cause redness, swelling and pain in the throat.

Allergies, bacterial or viral infections and environmental triggers such as dust, dry air and smoke are the most common cause of sore throats.

 

How supplements can help

 

Vitamin C helps the body to fight the upper respiratory tract infections that often cause sore throats. It is a natural antihistamine, and can also reduce the production of inflammatory compounds in the bodies of allergy sufferers.

The herbs Echinacea and garlic have antiviral and antibacterial properties; take them at the first sign of s throat infection.

If you have a cold, try zinc lozenges to help ward off a sore throat; studies have shown they may shorten the duration of the illness.

Drinking Slippery Elm or Marshmallow root tea, coat the throat, making swallowing easier and relieving pain. Slippery elm also contains compounds that fight infection and allergic reactions.

For an extra boost to the immune system add Golden Seal tincture to your tea. This is especially effective against bacterial infections.

 

You should not be prescribed antibiotics for a sore throat unless it has been confirmed that the soreness is related to a bacterial infection. If you need antibiotics they may destroy the ‘friendly’ gut bacteria that keep your digestive system functioning well, so replenish your internal supply with a probiotic supplement.

 

REMINDER:

If you have a medical condition, consult your doctor before taking any supplements
