Sore Throat? Treat it Naturally With These 8 Solutions...=HEALTH=
When we have a bothersome sore throat that interferes with daily functioning, the immediate response is to drink tea with lemon and honey, or rush to the medicine cabinet, hoping to find a pill to soothe the pain. There is no doubt that these drugs have their own advantages, but there are a variety of healthy and nutritious foods that can relieve your sore throat and strengthen your immune system.
From now on, you won’t need to consume vitamins, supplements or drink dozens of cups of tea all day, because these 8 foods will provide you with the essential nutrients you need to overcome a sore throat.
Oats and bananas are not only very tasty but they can also cure your sore throat. This porridge has a soft texture that slides down your throat and contains about 60% of the recommended daily intake of molybdenum, a trace mineral essential to the body's function and enzyme development. In addition, oatmeal contains many dietary fibers and proteins that will strengthen throat tissue and, together with the banana, will restore the damaged layer of cells.
The banana isn’t only there to add some sweetness, because the fruit contains two important vitamins that strengthen your immune system; Vitamin C which helps the body renew and repair damaged tissue, and vitamin B6 which helps keep the body from disease and contributes to the production of hemoglobin (a protein found in red blood cells).
Pomegranate is an antioxidant-rich fruit that inhibits the harmful action of free radicals. In addition, its astringency causes body tissue to contract and thus reduces swelling in the throat and eases the pain. In order to enjoy the wonderful benefits of pomegranate peel, its best to make a tea from it using the following recipe:
1. Peel the pomegranate, collect the peels and place them in a pot (Tip: you can pre-peel and keep them in a sealed jar away from sunlight).
Many people use cough syrup to treat a sore throat, but it is much simpler, easier and healthier to make a homemade version which combines honey, citrus fruits, and herbs. Each of these wonderful ingredients eases pain and improves feeling: Honey helps the body fight infection and also moistens the lining of the throat, making it easier to swallow and soothe the pain.
Along with it, citrus fruits, such as lemon or orange, contain vitamin C, which kills bacteria and viruses and helps dull the feeling of a sore throat.
You may be asking yourself how hot peppers can improve your sore throat, but even though it sounds absurd, this madness makes sense. The hot pepper contains an anti-inflammatory ingredient called capsaicin which fights infection and temporarily reduces pain.
Capsaicin inhibits the action of a chemical compound that sends pain signals to the brain and actually relieves the feeling in the throat. You can also try this amazing pain relief method:
Cinnamon is a great spice and a wonderful home remedy that will help relieve your sore throat. It has many antioxidants and its aroma reduces mucus production, helps to open the airways, and actually reduces your need to swallow and feel pain.
Some familiar methods incorporate a little cinnamon powder in hot water, but to absorb as much of its health benefits as possible and to help you feel better, you may want to make tea with cinnamon sticks using the following recipe:
2. Remove the cinnamon sticks, transfer the water to a cup and add the tea bag of your choice. (Tip: the most recommended combination is chamomile tea and cinnamon with a teaspoon of honey).
For many generations, herbs, such as sage, were used by many people to disinfect the throat and get rid of the pain. Today, different types of herbs are combined to form a wonderful herbal infusion that heals your sore throat.

Besides being fluffy and full of nutritious proteins that help reduce inflammation and sore throats, scrambled eggs contain essential substances and minerals for proper body functioning omega-3, selenium, and vitamin A, which neutralize the activity of free radicals and strengthen your immune system.
In addition, one serving of eggs has 23% of the recommended daily dose of vitamin B2, an important antioxidant that helps the body to produce red blood cells and prevent disease. All the health benefits of scrambled eggs make them recommended for people suffering from a sore throat, just don’t add too much spice as this can irritate your throat and worsen the pain.
Carrots are one of the most recommended foods for sore throats. Just one cup of this wonderful vegetable contains 113% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, which helps protect the skin and respiratory cells, and also contains many antioxidants to help your immune system fight bacteria and repair the damaged tissue in your throat. It is recommended to cook or steam the carrots otherwise it will be very difficult to swallow and can definitely aggravate the pain.
Apart from these foods, there are many products with different health benefits which can be combined to ease your sore throat. For example, you can combine salt (which absorbs liquids and reduces swelling) or soda bicarbonate (helps the body get rid of bacteria and viruses) with water and gargle several times a day.
Also eating chicken soup is recommended and of course a combination of a number of ingredients such as lemon, ginger, garlic, and honey will upgrade your cup of tea and will provide you with quick pain relief.
