Soothing Strep Throat at Home

I just wanted to write a quick note today about strep throat, especially after yesterday’s post about antibiotic side effects. The most common strep throat treatment is antibiotics, even though viral infections cause 85-90% of sore throats in adults.

You can recognize strep throat for its symptoms:

  • A non-itching, red rash called scarlet fever
  • A headache and body aches
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Red and swollen tonsils
  • Red spots on the roof of your mouth and a white or yellow coating on your throat and tonsils
  • A sore throat and difficulty swallowing
  • A fever of 101 degrees Fahrenheit or more.

You can try taking supplements to aid it:

  1. Elderberry
  2. Echinacea
  3. Vitamin C
  4. Vitamin D.

Also eat and drink raw honey, bone broth, herbal tea, apple cider vinegar. Gargle with Himalayan salt. Try oil pulling, and use essential oils: peppermint oil, lemon oil and thyme oil. Sterilize your toothbrush daily with a hydrogen peroxide solution of 3%.
