This is how you get rid of that sore throat as quickly as possible.
Almost every fall or winter you are afflicted with it – a horrible sore throat. Whether it really hurts you or not, it’s terribly annoying. Tea and honey are folk remedies that you are probably familiar with.
Every food has its qualities.
Just like a steaming hot cup of tea, a nice hot bowl of broth can work wonders for a sore throat.Your nose will be less clogged because of the steam from the broth.Additionally, broth makes a great base for an antibacterial soup.Add some fresh vegetables, garlic, turmeric, and ginger and presto!An antiinflammatory soup is born.
2. Fruit popsicles
An ice cold popsicle chills your throat and eases your pain immediately. But don’t grap a box of pear-flavoured popsicles! These popsicles contain a lot of sugar, which irritates your throat even more. Get your blender and throw in some different types of fruit, fresh spinach, and grated ginger. Pour this mixture into some popsicle molds and put it in the freezer for a few hours. Your throat will be grateful.
Garlic contains the substance allicin. This substance has anti-inflammatory properties and kills the bacteria that cause your sore throat. Apart from that, garlic can also help you get rid of a cold. How do you eat it? Finely chop a garlic glove and put it into your broth.
Like a popsicle, cold smoothies do a lot of good things for the throat. Do you have a bad flu? Then you probably don’t want to eat a lot. However, it is really important that you get enough vitamins and minerals in your system in order to heal as quickly as possible. Few ingredients are essential in your smoothie when you want to fight a sore throat. Take plenty of fresh or frozen fruit, oatmeal, fresh ginger, a pinch of turmeric, water or vegetable milk, and ice cubes. Mix them all together and you have a great smoothie that will help you feel better again.
