The sore throat is one of the most common health complaints. Classic symptoms include irritation, a ‘burning sensation’ at the back of the throat and pain when swallowing.
Most sore throats are caused by viral infections such as the cold or flu. Breathing polluted air, being exposed to pollens, moulds or pet dander as well as unhealthy lifestyle choices are also leading causes.
Drinking more water promotes body metabolism. The influenza virus will also leave the body much faster. Sore throats and coughs will also improve and we will recover from cold or influenza much sooner.
