Remedies to Sore throat

Sent by - Shruti Aggarwal
A sore throat usually means you have a cold or the flu. Is can also be caused by dry air, pollution, or simply hooting and hollering too loud at a football game. When you are sick of course it may take a few days before your throat is entirely back to normal. But there are many ways to get quick relief.Have a soothing gargle: this is very effective traditional remedy. Add a tea spoon of salt to a cup of warm water and gargle away.Pause for a moment of silence: giving your voice a rest will help ease a sore throat by reducing strain on the vocal cords.Breathe soothing moisture: breathing in moisture – either by taking a long steamy shower or simply plugging in a humidifier will help protect to delicate linings inside the throat and make them less irritated.
Reach for tea and honey: any warm beverage can make a sore throat feel better, but tea is especially good because it contains compounds called tannins, which can ease the irritation.
