Natural Herb Remedies for Sore Throat

Having a sore throat is a good indication that you will catch colds, or worse, the flu virus. Though there are OTC medications for this, going the natural route is still the most affordable option.

Some alternative herbal healthcare for sore throat includes the bark of the slippery elm, which contains a gelatinous substance containing protein and polysaccharides that has a demulcent effect or it coats tissue to reduce pain and inflammation. This is best taken as lozenges.

A major component of cold medicine, the African geranium species of pelargonium sidoides is an anti-bacterial that can reduce cold symptoms such as nasal congestion, sore throats and fever. You can also use garlic for its antimicrobial properties, which can be useful in treating early-stage sore throat. You can also try mixing honey and lemon juice in warm water and drink this twice a day to reduce your cold or fever symptoms.
