(NaturalNews) A Sore throat is one of the most common conditions affecting people from all walks of life. Making basic activities such as talking and swallowing difficult, it is a major annoyance to say the least. This involves the swelling of the pharynx caused by factors such as bacterial infection, allergies, and acid reflux. If you have a sore throat, you may want to deal with it immediately. Here are some home remedies you can use for treating sore throat.

Home remedies for a sore throat

Decongestants. Oftentimes, all you need is to make things clear for your nose. Remember that the nasal and oral cavities are connected to each other, and if one area is not right, it will affect the other. Using decongestants such as pseudoephedrine and saline nasal spray will provide immediate relief for your sore throat as well as your breathing.

Rest. A sore throat is sometimes caused by fatigue. If that is the case, it might be best to get yourself some rest. Not only does it ease the pressure on your throat to work hard, but it also provides you with more energy to combat an infection.

Gargling. Particular gargles are effective in providing both immediate and lasting relief for your sore throat. Among the most effective gargles you can use for treating a sore throat include raspberry tea, sage, warm saltwater, and mouthwash.

Create cure concoctions. Particular mixes are known to be very effective in treating sore throat. One of the most effective mixes around is a honey-cider vinegar mix. Another is using a mix based on horseradish and cloves. You'll be surprised at how these mixes can get your throat back to tiptop shape.

Citrus fruits. Citrus has a remarkable effect on those who are suffering from a bad throat. Not only do these fruits have a natural antimicrobial effect, but they are also rich in vitamin C that can boost immunity. Lemon and lime are two of the best citrus fruits you can use for these conditions.

Analgesics. Particular analgesics are effective in providing relief for a sore throat. While some precaution (and some doctor's advice) is a must before taking these, analgesics such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen are known to provide impressive sore throat relief.

Eat something warm and cold. Both temperatures can have a unique effect for the throat. Eating something cold can soothe the itching caused by sore throat. Meanwhile, eating something warm improves blood circulation around the throat. Of course, avoid using foods that contain ingredients that can further irritate the throat.

Those are just some of the most effective remedies you can use for your sore throat, and the best part is you don't even have to leave home and see a doctor to use them.
