Home remedies for a sore throat
Although a sore throat isn’t usually serious, it can start to get you down after a while.
As well as using Difflam™ to relieve your sore throat, why not try these home remedies to help speed up your recovery and get you back to feeling yourself again.
Gargle warm, salty water
Gargling several times a day with warm, salty water can reduce the swelling in the throat and loosen mucus. It will also help to flush out irritants and bacteria.
Add honey to your drink
Added to a hot drink, a teaspoon of honey can often make the liquid more palatable and it also has antibacterial properties that could help you to heal faster.
Eat some chicken soup
Chicken is one of the healthier types of meat, known for its low fat and high protein content. B vitamins contribute towards a healthy digestive system and sodium acts as an anti-inflammatory.
Use a room humidifier
Moist air from a humidifier can help to keep your nasal passage and throat lubricated for a faster recovery. It can also help prevent passing airborne viruses, which spread less in moist air, on to family and friends.
