Having a soar throat or congested throat seems to be a major concern amongst all during this pandemic breakout and we have been taking all measures to protect our health.
Drinking warm liquids such as caffeine-free tea with lemon juice and honey, warm water with lemon and honey, or warm soup broth can be soothing on a sore throat. Hot fluids also help thin sinus mucus, which allows for better drainage and decreased stuffiness and better throat.
Along with many herbal tea or turmeric milk and similar herbal treatments, here is an effective drink suggested by a friend when I suffered from throat issues for more than two weeks. This drink when consumed twice or thrice a week as a thick decotion heals infected throat and makes you feel lot better. Do try it out and post your feedback.
Water. - 1 litre
Lemon - one no
Ginger - one inch piece
Cloves - 2 nos
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Take 1 L water and add lemon cut into multiple prices to the water. Add a small piece of ginger skinned, cut and squashed. Add the cloves and 1 tea spoon turmeric powder.
Boil this solution in slow flame till the water becomes half the quantity.(Half litre)
