Natural Laryngitis Home Remedies

Here is the suggested laryngitis home remedies:

1. Salt. A saltwater gargle helps heal infected and inflamed vocal cords and sore throats.

Mixtures: Add 1/2 teaspoon salt to 1 cup warm water and gargle several times a day as needed. Be careful to use the correct amount of salt. Gargling with a solution as salty as the sea will only increase the irritation.

2. Vinegar. Viruses and bacteria dread an acidic environment, so why not make your mouth one big, albeit weak, acid bath? Gargling with vinegar, a weak acid, can help wipe out many infectious organisms. Pour equal amounts of vinegar and water into a cup, mix, and gargle two to four times a day. You can also gargle with straight vinegar, but some people find it too strong, especially at first.

3. Lemon. Lemon is naturally acidic and helps stimulate saliva flow. The salt boosts the lemon’s acidity, which in turn helps kill a lot of microbes prone to weak acids. To make this gargle, juice a whole lemon into a bowl and add a pinch of sea salt (or regular salt). Mix well. Add 1 teaspoon of the concentrated lemon/salt mixture to 1 cup warm water. Gargle three to four times a day as needed. Also try hot tea with lemon, or even lemon drops, to keep your throat moist.

4. Soap and water. Laryngitis can be triggered by a viral infection and is easily spread by hand-to-hand contact or by touching contaminated surfaces. Avoiding these germs is one of the best ways to protect against laryngitis. If you or a person around you has a cold, be extra cautious about cleaning your hands with warm water and soap. Clean up common surfaces, such as the phone and door handles, with vinegar and a clean cloth.

drinking-water5. Drink Plenty Of Water. Keep the throat moistened and stay hydrated by drinking your daily amount of water (eight 8-ounce glasses per day). Fruit juices also fit the bill, as do warm, noncaffeinated drinks, which may feel extra-soothing on sore throat tissues.

6. Garlic. Should you have a formidable abdomen and no social activities to attend, try what the Amish and Seventh Day Adventists recommend for treating sore throats and viral infections: Suck on a slice of garlic. Garlic, when sliced or crushed, releases the antimicrobial substance allicin. Allicin kills bacteria, including strep and some viruses. Slice a garlic clove down the middle and place half a clove on each side of the mouth. Pretend the cloves are lozenges and suck on them. Use as often as necessary, or as often as you can handle garlic breath.

To prepare the tea, cut a fresh 1- to 2-inch ginger root into thin slices and place in 1 quart boiling water. Cover the pot and simmer on the lowest heat for 30 minutes. Let cool for 30 more minutes, strain, and drink 1/2 to 1 cup three to five times a day. Sweeten with honey if needed.
