Living With Sore Throat

I had a question the other day about a sore throat.

Sore throats can be painful and annoying.

Fortunately, most sore throats are caused by a minor illness and go away on their own.

Several things can cause a sore throat.

Viral infections

Many sore throats are caused by a viral illness:

>The common cold, the most common type of viral infection.

>Infection of the voice box (laryngitis).

>Mononucleosis (mono), which tends to cause a persistent sore throat.

>Other viral infections, like mumps or influenza.

Bacterial infections

A bacterial infection may also cause a sore throat.  This can occur from:

>Strep throat, which usually doesn’t occur with congestion or a cough.

>An inflammation or infection of the tonsils (tonsillitis) and sometimes the adenoids.

>Inflammation of the epiglottis.

>Inflammation of the uvula.

>In rare cases, a sexually transmitted disease, like gonorrhea or chlamydia.

Irritants and injuries

A sore throat lasting longer than a week is often caused by irritants or injuries, like:

>Throat irritation from low humidity, smoking, air pollution, yelling, or nasal drainage down the back of your throat.

>Breathing through your mouth when you have allergies or a stuffy nose.

>Stomach acid backing up into your throat, which may be a symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease.

>An injury to the back of your throat, like a cut or puncture.

>Chronic fatigue syndrome, a condition causing extreme tiredness.

To deal with a sore throat, it’s beneficial to:

*Drink plenty of water, with Performance, to remain hydrated and flush toxins.

*Bee pollen, blackberry, calendula, and cayenne all have been known to soothe or heal a sore throat.

*Fenugreek used as a gargle can relieve a sore throat and reduce the pain of swollen glands.  Add 20 drops of extract to 1 cup water and gargle with the mixture 3 times daily.

*Marshmallow root tea soothes a scratchy, itchy throat.

*Raspberry leaf tea is good for easing the pain of a sore throat as well as fever blisters.

*Hot mullein poultices are soothing to sore throats.

*Olive leaf extract has been found to be a good remedy for a sore throat.

*Be sure to cook all your food until it’s tender.  Poaching and steaming are good methods of cooking to retain moisture.

*Cut your food into very small pieces – or, if necessary, grind or puree it.  This will cause less irritation to your throat.  Be sure to chew your food well before swallowing.

*Use frozen popsicles, ice cream, yogurt, and sherbet to soothe a sore throat.

*Avoid eating foods that are spicy, hot, salty, or acidic.  These can be irritating to your throat.

*If you’re having an especially difficult time swallowing and aren’t able to get the proper intake of nutrients, try drinking an instant breakfast drink.

*Defend & Resist may be swallowed, chewed, sucked or made as a tea.

If you’re dealing with a sore throat, try these (100% money-back guarantee):

It’s essential to use:  Vita-Lea, Protein, Defend & Resist, Immunity Formula, NutriFeron, Zinc, Vitamin C, Optiflora, Garlic, Alfalfa.
