Sore Throat Info
A sore throat (or throat pain) is pain or irritation of the throat. A common physical symptom, it is usually caused by acute pharyngitis (inflammation of the throat), although it can also appear as a result of trauma, diphtheria, or other conditions. A sore throat may cause mild to extreme pain.
A sore throat is pain anywhere in the oropharynx (which is a fancy word for your throat canal.)
A sore throat is usually from irritation or inflammation. The most common cause (80% of people who complain about pain in the throat) is acute viral pharyngitis, a viral infection of the throat. Other causes include other infections (such as streptococcal pharyngitis,) trauma, and tumours. Gastro-oesophageal (acid) reflux can cause stomach acid to leak up into the throat, causing the throat to become sore.
Another contributing factor to sore throats is unexpressed emotional distress. The mouth and throat area is the 'avenue of expression' – our main channel of communication. Holding back something that needs to be said can be an underlying cause of irritation and inflammation in the throat.
There are some natural health remedies that may help alleviate the pain and remove the symptoms as well as helping boost the immune system to prevent further infection. Vitamin C and zinc are important here. Herbs that are specific for sore throats are thyme, sage and myrrh.
Used this all winter from the first sign of a sore throat, and it never progressed into one of the "lurgies" everyone around was suffering from. Will always have this on hand!
Whenever I am ordering hawthorn and saw palmetto in the winter months, I like to get these lozenges. They are so soothing for the throat, and HealthPost beat the Chemist prices hands down!
Don't know what's in these little miracle pills but they work! Been using theses for about 8 yrs!
