    Throat hurts.

    Shop Now
    My throat has been hurting for two weeks now. In those two weeks I've had one or two days when I thought it was over but the next day it came back again. Whenever I drink hot tea it feels way better but five minutes later it's just as bad again. Is there anything I can do to speed up the healing process?

    It's only the right side of my throat, from the back of my tongue 'till my adams apple.

    Vitamin C speeds healing. You might want to check with the doctor, since that's a long time to have a sore throat.

    Salt water gargle is antiseptic and could help - also zinc lozenges are good for a sore throat. If all else fails, you could also try chicken soup (seriously).

    I would start w/ 5 grams ascorbic acid and take it until you get loose stools. Then 2 gram an hour while awake. In the am, take another 5 grams and repeat. I would continue loading until you are feeling better.

    Avocado?

    I get this every time I eat more than a few slices of avocado. It's the same feeling you get right before you get sick. Maybe you are experiencing something similar?

    There are a lot of possible reasons for a sore throat from allergies to thrush to strep to whatever. You need to see a doctor a figure out what is going on. That is too long for a "normal" sore throat to be hanging around.

    I'm pretty confident I know what caused it - I have to admit that my summer holidays have been all but primal. The sore throat started after Sziget festival, which mainly was a week with a lot of drinking. I've not really stopped drinking and have only been primal again since last monday.

    The sore throat is just annoying, not extremely painfull or anything. I realise that having a sore throat this long isn't normal. I will try the ascorbic acid and staying completely primal for a few days. I'm confident it will help and if not I will go to a doctor . Thnx!

    Try echinecia supplement with added garlic and Vit C. Always helps me when I get a cold or sore throat.
