A sore throat is quite a common occurrence, and all of us have been affected by it at some point in time in our lives. A sore throat can be quite painful, making it difficult to talk, swallow, or eat. The main reasons behind a sore throat could be infections, shouting or smoking.

According to the ancient system of medicine, Ayurveda, a human body is composed of three doshas. These three doshas – Kapha, Pitta and Vatta are comparable to elements such as air, earth, fire, water and space. Everyone has a dominant dosha which determines their personality; but according to philosophy of Ayurveda, any disease or ailment is caused because there is a serious imbalance between these three doshas.

Let us look at some of the lesser-known Ayurvedic remedies that can help in soothing a sore throat. Following Ayurveda’s principle to cure a sore throat, one must make necessary changes in one’s diet and lifestyle to cure a sore throat. One must avoid consuming cold, sore or spicy food to cure a sore throat. Using herbs and spices like ginger, methi and garlic will be helpful in curing the sore throat condition. We bring it to you these 5 secret recipes from the ancient system of medicine, which can alleviate the pain associated with a sore throat.

Cardamom: You must have used cardamom to flavour your food or milk. But did you know, in Ayurveda, cardamom is used to cure a sore throat and tonsils? Cardamom infused in water is used as a gargle to cure a stubborn sore throat.

Methi: We knew methi seeds can be used to cure indigestion and used for hair growth. But little did we know that this herb can be used for curing sore throat as well. Boil methi seeds in water for some time. Allow it to cool to a suitable temperature, strain it and use it as a solution to gargle.

Mango Bark: Did you know bark from a mango tree can be used to cure a sore throat? According to Ayurveda, mango bark is one of the most effective treatments for a sore throat. The liquid extracted while grinding it can be mixed in water and used as a gargle or can be used to apply on the affected area.

Triphala: Triphala is a combination of three or more herbs used for its digestive benefits, detoxifying properties and giving a boost to the immunity, according to Ayurveda. It is also used to alleviate a sore throat and other throat issues. Mix Triphala with warm water. Gargle with this concoction several times in a day and you will see a quick improvement in your condition.

Mulethi: Available easily in the market, Mulethi is one of the least known but one of the most effective herbs used for curing a sore throat. Mulethi has a cooling effect on the throat that helps in curing the throat infections. To cure a sore throat, boil mulethi in water, and then slowly sip it as a tea. Mulethi is consumed since Vedic times due to its healing properties and it finds a place in Ayurveda too. So, here were some secret remedies from our ancient scriptures. Next time, if you have a sore throat bothering you, do remember to give these remedies a try.
