Sore Throat Remedies

It is that time of year and a sore throat is a part of the territory with rain and cold always near by. Sometimes bundling up in sweaters and hats is just not enough to keep a throat from getting in the way of feeling wonderful. Fortunately, there are things you can do to make yourself feel better.

Taking care of your health during cold and flu season is difficult but it gets even harder when the pain of sore throat is added into the equation. The pain of sore throat can be extremely uncomfortable, but can be helped with the use of remedies right in your kitchen cabinets. With many having a tight budget it is a good idea to know these remedies that are so helpful for sore throat.

One simple food is lemon, great for a sore throat and good for keeping the blood free of viruses. Gargling with warm salt water can help the misery of a sore throat. Peppermint taste good and helps clear the passages and relaxes a sore throat. If your sore throat gets so bad you have laryngitis a little juice from a jalapeno pepper will knock it right out and you will be able to talk in no time.

Many simple things that are eaten or used everyday for cooking are great sore throat remedies. Chicken soup is a favorite, but does not seem to work as well without celery. Just think of all of those wonderful weather fighting ingredients. Below is a cold and sore throat recipe. Throw a chicken in the pot; add onions, garlic, celery, pepper and a little salt. Use all of these seasonings to taste. Eat it nice and hot, add rice or noodles for a nice meal and soothe away the sore throat blues.

      A nurse once told me that chicken soup is the best cold remedy but that they still don't know why.

      Personally just a sip of Blackberry brandy does the trick for me every time even with my worse sore throat but thanks for all of the other options.
