Herbs for Sore Throats

Posted on September 28, 2011 at 5:29 PM
HERBS FOR SORE THROATS

It's that time of the season when the temperatures are quite erratic, our clothing choices may not be warm enough for the cooler temperatures, our lives speed up after the lazy summer season, & the resulting stress can weaken our immune systems quite dramatically.  Fall colds are very common & they often begin with the feeling of knives in the throat.  Often, if we address the symptoms at this stage with herbs, healing foods/drinks, & rest, we can stop them from going any further. 

OIL OF OREGANO:  This is a commercial product found in health food stores.  It is made with a specific wild species of oregano- not the common garden variety- in a base of olive oil.  It is on the expensive side but a little goes a long way.  The dosage is usually 1-5 drops 3 x day.  Since it is very strong & spicy, my favourite way to take the drops is on a spoonful of honey, which is also soothing to the throat.  Oil of Oregano is the very best natural antibiotic product with which I have worked.


SLIPPERY ELM:  This plant is one of the "demulcent" herbs, meaning it forms a gluey coating that soothes inflamed tissues.  Slippery Elm can be purchased in its bulk powder form.  There are many on-line recipes for making your own lozenges with the powder, or you can buy them pre-made at health food stores. 

SAGE:  Ever had laryngitis?  Herbalist David Hoffmann recommends gargling with Common Garden Sage:  "Put 2 tblsps. of Sage leaves into 500 ml cold water & bring to a boil.  Cover it & let it infuse for a further 10 minutes.  Reheat the mixture whenever needed & gargle often".
