Potato poultices reduce the inflammation, release the pain and they have decongestant properties. There are two ways you can use the potatoes as a healing outcome on your sore throat.

Raw Potatoes

If you use only raw potatoes, you need just two grated potatoes, one or two tablespoons of milk or apple cider vinegar.  Combine the two ingredients. Add the liquid little by little so the mixture doesn’t get too fluid. Transfer it to a linen bag, place the bag directly on the skin and roll a towel or a scarf around the neck to secure it.

Garlic may not smell as nice as lavender, but it can help your sore throat fade away. Known for centuries as a natural antibiotic, garlic kills germs and bacteria which are bothering you and is also a painkiller, due to one compound named eugenol. Of course, you won’t be able to kiss someone on a date immediately after trying this remedy, but on the other hand, you might not even be able to have a date with it.

You will need:

  • 1-2 garlic cloves

Directions:

Keep the cloves into your mouth and scrape them with your teeth from time to time to release some juice. When they become soft, imagine that you’re chewing a bad taste gum, just like the weird gum drops Harry Potter and his friends had in the movie.

24. Get Seam And Breathe Well

Sometimes this condition may be caused by dryness of the throat. You know, that times when you try to swallow, and your feel like your throat is like a desert with a cactus forest in it. And this happens because you can’t breathe properly due to the congestion. Using steam to relief your sore throat will help your secretions become fluid and therefore easier to eliminate.

You will need:

A sore throat can have multiple causes and multiple effects, like dryness, swelling or bacteria. A closer look and a little change to your diet will ease your way into healing and sometimes may even prevent it. The following natural juices (and I mean natural, freshly squeezed, not that “natural” juices from the supermarket) have a beneficial effect on the respiratory tract as well as your immune system.

25.1. Carrot Juice

You can drink 1 or 2 glasses daily, and your sore throat will diminish over time. Also, cabbage has a strong emollient, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effect. You may also use turnips. Drink one glass of fresh cabbage or turnip juice per day.

If you wish, you may take a walk in the park, but by all means avoid smokers and other places where irritating substances, like chemical dyes, are used.

27. Don’t Eat Ice Cream!

“alanuster/Bigstock.com”

Oh, I know, this is a tough one. But it’s not for good, only until your sore throat is completely healed. Cold foods favor the swelling of the tonsils and other tissues and will do a lot of harm.

28. Be careful – Don’t Drink Cow Milk!

don't drink cow milk
“Sangoiri/Bigstock.com”

We won’t start a polemic here about the milk, whether it is good or not for human beings or only for calves. One thing is for sure. It is not advisable to drink cow milk if you experience a sore throat during that time. Also, milk helps produce a lot of excess mucus which loads the body cavities and sinuses. There are a lot of people who used to catch colds often and had great complications like pulmonary infections. After eliminating milk from their diet, the rate of illness decreased dramatically. This may be because not everyone has the ability of properly digesting this food. Lactose in the milk can only be digested with the help of an enzyme called lactase which cannot be found in every human body. In fact, approximately 60% of the world population has a lactase deficiency.

Meanwhile, why risk a sore throat? Drink goat milk instead as it has a smaller amount of lactose. Or, you may try vegetable substitutes -like almond milk, soy milk or even rice milk with 1 or 2 tablespoons of honey to make it taste better.

Bye Bye Sore Throat

A sore throat is given by the inflammation of the throat caused most often by streptococci and staphylococci action or a pneumococcal infection, but may also have a viral origin or accompany other respiratory diseases. These are not modern ailments; our great-grandfathers have experienced it too. Therefore, we must be confident that the natural remedies are quite effective even today.

Trusting nature’s ability to provide the best solutions is the best thing we can do. Conventional drugs are created to treat only the symptoms which mean that the condition and what caused it are still there. This is why most of the sore throat remedies presented in this article have two effects: soothing the pain and stimulating the immune system. Using them will help you remain strong and healthy. You don’t need to try them all at once and try to consider what is best for you. Our bodies react different to treatments and what helps someone, may not help you.
