Throat Problem Treatment

Before Throat Problem Treatment By A Physician

Did you know that throat problem treatment can be done at home? First, let’s discuss why you’re having sore throat. We have an organ in our throat that lies between the mouth and the larynx (voice box) known as the pharynx. It is associated with common colds or influenza that is the actual reason for many throat problems. Most sore throats heal without complications, but occasionally they develop into pharyngitis or tonsillitis.

Pharyngitis is the painful inflammation of the mucous membranes that line the pharynx. Tonsillitis, the infection of the tonsils, may also occur simultaneously. Swallowing becomes painful and there is scratchiness in the throat. The pain is at its worst in the mornings and subsides as the day progresses, usually lasting up to three days before disappearing completely. If the symptoms persist over three days, it may be a sign of a more serious condition.

Tips of Throat Problem Treatment That Can Be Done At Home

Throat problems have two general types: sore throat and throat pain. For sore throats: apply licorice paste externally around the throat for relief; or, dink tea boiled with ginger and a few tulsi leaves 2-3 times a day; or, pound 2-3 cloves of garlic and add to a cup full of honey, keep for 1-2 days, and take 1 teaspoon thrice a day; drink lots of water everyday.

For throat pain: mix 1 teaspoon lime juice and 1 table spoon honey, swallow in tiny amounts slowly 2-3 times a day; or, crush a few neem leaves with water, remove pulp, add a little honey and gargle three or four times a day.

Throat Problem Treatment By A Physician or Medical Practitioner

Sore throats are caused by viral or bacterial infections. Bacteria respond well to anti-biotic treatments, viruses do not. Immunization is the remedy for viral infections. It is important to accurately tell your doctor about your condition so that the throat problem treatment he administers is correct.
