It’s THAT time of year again, colds and sore throats! Try these natural sore throat remedies before reaching for medications!
Do you have the feeling like you constantly have to clear your throat or hawking? This can effect your vocal cords, so instead of doing that, try to hum, it has the same effect as hawking but is gentle on the vocal chords.
Air out your House! Often germs linger in your house and cause sore throats and hoarseness, airing out gets rid of them and diminishes the chance of spreading a bug.
Wash Your Hands! This of course, is the number one preventative measure you can take to avoid/spread germs, it cannot be stated often enough!
Also Ladies, DO NOT place your purse on bathroom floors in public toilets, You do not know, what has been on that surface and then you transmit it to your car, or worse, your kitchen table!
When a family member is sick, wipe doorknobs, refrigerator handle and anything else that is touched often!
If You are already hoarse, try not to speak (easier said than done!) Alcohol and cigarettes also need to be avoided. Try a warm glass of Milk with Honey. Honey weakens the growth of Germs and soothes the throat.
