Ayruvedic medicine has been present in India for more than 3000 years. If you do not have faith in these kinds of treatment, please note that these treatments were suggested by professional otorhinolaryngologist. This doctor suggests to gargle your throat with mixture of warm water and irimedadi tail three times per day. Also, it is extremely helpful if your sore throat is accompanied by dry cough to consume a Belleric myrobalan (Terminalia belerica). You can fry the fruit but before preparation you need to mix it with salt, pepper and honey. This immediately relieves the pain and stops the dry cough. If you are interested in learning how to get rid of sore throat with the help of Ayruvedic medicine, you can search the web or buy some books on this matter.
