Strep throat is the most common bacterial cause of sore throat. Because strep throat can occasionally lead to rheumatic fever, antibiotics are given. Strep throat often includes a fever (greater than 101 degrees Fahrenheit), white draining patches on the throat, and swollen or tender lymph glands in the neck. Children may have headache and stomach pain.
Increasingly popular Wild Oregano (Origanum vulgare) Essential Oil is a very effective sore throat remedy. Soak a cotton swab in oil of Oregano and dab it directly on the inflamed area. You may gargle with 2-3 drops of Oregano oil in some hot water as well. Your sore throat will be gone in less then an hour.
Besides using gargles a fine, oil external throat massage can speed up the healing process. Add 2 drops each of Thyme (Thymus vulgaris), Sandalwood (Santalum album) and Myrrh (Commiphora molmol) essential oils to 1 tbsp of olive oil and massage the external neck area. Wrap a warm scarf around the neck afterwards.
Lozenges or Linctus
Do not forget our good old Garlic, which has an excellent antiseptic effect and has the power to cure both viral and bacterial sore throat. At the first sign of a sore throat, place one clove of garlic in your mouth between your cheeks and teeth and keep it for a while. Repeat it several times a day.
If you like garlic, you can eat two raw cloves each day without anything or chop finely and add to hot soup just before serving.
Another possibility is to crush one clove of raw garlic and add 2 teaspoons of honey and fresh squeezed lemon juice. Take from the mixture 1 teaspoon several times a day.
A lovely old folk remedy is Baked Lemon with Olive Oil.
Take one lemon and poke some holes with a fork, put it in the oven (150-170C) and bake it until juice bubbles out the holes. Cool and squeeze the lemon put the juice in a jar and add equal amount of olive oil and some honey. Shake well! Take a small spoonful now and again.
A very nice old home remedy is Layered Onion with Honey.
Layer slices of onion or turnip with honey (or sugar) in a dish and leave overnight. Next morning pour off the liquid in a jar and take it sometimes as a lozenge for sore throat. (It is an excellent cough syrup as well)
Avoid cow's milk products, sugar and refined wheat foods, since they promote mucus formation.
Drink a lot of fresh Pineapple Juice, may be hot. You can even gargle the juice before swallowing.
Drink plenty of Citrus Juices diluted with water. Mix a cup of hot water with a spoonful of honey and with the juice of half a lemon. Drink it several times a day.
Drink 4-6 glasses of water each day.
Some other tips:
Run a cool-mist vaporiser or humidifier in your bedroom. Adding moisture to the air will help to prevent the lining of your throat from becoming too dry.
If you are plagued with a recurrent sore throat, buy a new toothbrush. Bacteria collect on the bristles and if you injure your gums as you brush, they can enter your system and re-infect you.
Cayenne Pepper Sore Throat Cure
My standard treatment to relieve a sore throat used to be a gargle with water and apple cider vinegar. It tasted icky but took most of the soreness out. Usually.
But I have found something WAY better and 100 percent effective. I think it tastes good too. It's called Tomato Tea, or Cayenne Pepper Tea. This concoction uses a HUGE amount of cayenne pepper to, essentially, "nuke" and numb out the inflamed tissues of your throat. It absolutely works, and FAST.
Does the cayenne pepper burn your mouth? Well, kind of. Your lips will buzz for awhile, and as you drink it you will think to yourself, "Am I drinking a soup of very angry bees that are stinging my mouth?" I won't lie to you, it does feel that way, but I kid you not, the buzzing lips go away and so does the sore throat pain. Sweet relief! I think the tea (which is really more of a soup) has other curative powers and speeds recovery from the illness by killing off the virus.
I am one of those who actually enjoys the taste of this beverage. I find it quite soothing. It includes a healthy dose of garlic which is also known to have anti-viral effects. Oh and anti-vampire as well.
Here's the recipe:
CAYENNE PEPPER TOMATO TEA SORE THROAT CURE RECIPE
one can tomato sauce* (or tomato juice, or soup, or whatever)
one can water or thin to preferred consistency
two large cloves garlic, minced fine
one teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
optional: a splash of lemon juice (fresh)
Place all ingredients in a saucepan and heat through to hot soup drinkable temperature.
SIP the concoction, inhaling the fragrance of the garlic. Enjoy the feeling of the pepper as it "burns away" the pain, numbing it out and killing the virus!
This will likely clear you sinuses too.
ALTERNATE GARGLE METHOD:
If you only have cayenne pepper on hand, you can make a simple gargle of a cup of water and a teaspoon of cayenne pepper (or as much as you can stand). Stir the water to keep the pepper afloat while you gargle with it a few times. Not nearly as pleasnat or tasty, but effective in removing the pain.
The first time I used this cure was last spring, when I had the worst sore throat I had experienced in years. The Vinegar and water gargle didn't touch it. In desperation I searched the net and ran across this recipe. I tried it and it worked so well, it is now my treatment of choice. The cayenne pepper soup may cure it in one dose, possibly another one a few hours later if the sore throat is severe, but in my experience this is a miracle cure and even tasty once you get used to it.
