Taking Charge of Your Health

Shooting pain in the back of your throat.
Difficulty swallowing. Fever of 101º F or more. These are all symptoms of a common bacterial
infection that no one wants to have. It’s no fun at all having Streptococcus pyogenes.
Also known as strep throat, this sickness also carries swollen lymph nodes and yellow
or white streaks in the tonsil area. It’s also highly contagious. The worst cases of
strep lead to pockets of liquor puris, or pus. They can also bring about more serious
complications if not properly treated. That’s why it’s no fun at all having strep
throat. Most cases can be cleared up with antibiotics; however, for milder cases some
people have treated themselves with common household items and no need for a prescription.
Take a look at some of the best natural remedies that combat a streptococcal infection in the
throat. Gargling with Salt Water
We recommend using sea salt mixed with warm water to help reduce the symptoms of strep
throat. It helps with the swelling, and the sea salt also has antibacterial properties,
creating a difficult environment for the bacteria to survive, much less grow. Lemon and Honey Tea
For this remedy, simply boil some water, squeeze a fresh lemon into it, and stir in a tablespoon
of raw honey. This powerful combination has the ability to reduce swelling, coat your
throat, and temporarily relieve pain. The Vitamin C present in the lemon juice kills
the bacteria and cleanses your throat. The honey protects your throat and soothes it.
Both of these ingredients provide a special kick to your immune system. Peppermint oil
Placing a few drops of peppermint oil on the back of the tongue or as close to the affected
area as possible will reduce swelling and calm the inflammation. The menthol in the
oil cools the area and makes swallowing much easier. As an added bonus, peppermint oil
can be used to unclog your sinus cavities. By inhaling diffused peppermint oil, you can
almost instantly breathe easier. Rinsing with Coconut Oil
Rinsing your mouth daily with coconut oil helps reduce the bacteria present in your
mouth and throat area. It’s also known as oil pulling. To take advantage of the benefits
of coconut oil, swish a tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth for 10-15 minutes. Don’t
swallow the oil, but spit it out in the sink, and then brush your teeth as normal. This
method is more preventative than curative. The coconut oil can also be substituted with
sesame seed oil. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar works on two fronts. First, it allows for healthy bacteria to grow in
your system, not only in the mouth and throat area, but also in your gut. Secondly, it kills
many kinds of bacteria because of its acetic acid. It’s also believed to be a natural
antibiotic. Always use raw, unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar.

  1. My Dad used to cut off a piece of Sweet Apple Beechwood tobacco, soak it in water & let me gargle with it. Then he gave me some strong hot tea with honey to drink. It doesn't get rid of the infection, but it sure does take out the swelling quickly.

  2. DO NOT spit the coconut oil into the sink!! It can really clog it up. Spit into a paper towel and throw away. 😉

  3. Take 1 capsule of Natural Factors Probiotic, make sure to choose the one that has streptococcus thernophilus or its substrate. Break the capsule open and put in on you palm, breathe it down your throat to coat it. Put paper towel in your cheeks to absorb you saliva so it doesn't wash away, watch one hour of documentaries and in 1 hour your strep throat will be all gone, eaten up by its natural predator. These probiotics must be refrigerated to keep them alive. Take 2 every 2 hours and they all kill your flu, or cold or ant other infections. Awesome. I have used this for over 40 years and it has never failed me. There is absolutely no reason to take anti biotics for something that is so easy to get rid of.In fact it is dangerous! Antibiotics kill all of your own beneficial bacteria which is the front line of your immune system. Kill bad bacteria with their own natural predators. They MUST be alive! Dead ladybugs don't eat aphids! If you ha e tried this and it didn't work, the probiotics you purchased have already been exposed to heat and are dead. Take them back and get your money back, of a more recent edition of the same product. I have done this.

  4. Just manuka honey a spoonful every hour the first day, several times day two. Done. I used it. As strong as an antibiotic. Many vids on this even by some doctors.

  5. I blended piece of ginger 1 inch size,5 cloves, tblespoon cinnamon in 2cups water, let it sit in back of throat before swallowing and it helped numb it,while it's killing bacteria,gives fresh mouth odor too.

  6. When i have a strep throat, i usually drink honey water, and i put ice cubes in my mouth.. idk how, but it works
