Dr Oz: Sore Throat Cures
Sore Throats are such a common ailment that we all have our own home remedy approaches to fall back on for relief. Dr Oz shared three new ways you can target your symptoms using Turmeric Sore Throat Tea, Hot Sauce, or even Sage Water.
Dr Oz: Sage Salt Water Sore Throat Recipe
A sore throat swells your glands and makes them sore, but salt helps to drain that excess fluid and sage provides soothing that reduces inflammation, making this a better version of the time-tested classic.
- 1 cup boiling Water
- 2 tsp dried Sage leaves
- 1 1/2 tsp Salt
- Steep sage in boiling water for 10 minutes.
- Strain water and stir in salt til it dissolves.
Dr Oz: Sore Throat Hot Sauce Cure
When you have burning symptoms, Dr Oz suggested fighting fire with fire by relying on the Capsaicin from hot sauce or cayenne pepper to ease your pain. Add a few shakes of either Hot Sauce or Cayenne Pepper to a cup of hot water. Just remember, it’s going to pack a punch (but this might distract you from the pain of your throat).
Dr Oz: Turmeric Sore Throat Tea Recipe
For scratchy throats and gross phlegm, there was one more beverage waiting in Dr Oz’s arsenal. Those this phase of an illness can often signal that it is in the final throes, you may still want to try this Turmeric Sore Throat Tea Recipe to help with temporary relief.
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 cup Hot Water
- 1/2 tsp Turmeric
- 1 tbsp Honey
- Stir ingredients so they combine and dissolve.
- Gargle the water and spit.
Remember, these remedies work best in hot water because it makes it easier to dissolve the other ingredients. Cold water will make it more difficult, and Dr Oz said he even uses warm water in the operating room as needed.
