This is an all natural remedy for getting rid of a sore throat fast.
Are you suffering from a sore throat and want to know how to get rid of it fast? Well you are not alone. With winter just around the corner and the days getting colder, it is prime time to catch the flu or a virus. The moment you start feeling those scratchy eyes and sore throat is the time to put the battle plan in place quickly.
This is an all natural remedy for your sore scratchy throat that will alleviate the pain in a very short period of time. You will need some ground red pepper and a glass of hot tea. I choose to use herbal tea rather than a regular tea. Not only does your body get the additional benefits of herbal tea but the red pepper seems to taste better with them.
Once the tea is made, grab your ground red pepper. It must be the ground red pepper that looks like a powder. Sprinkle some into the tea. It does not take a lot to do the trick, but it should be enough that when you sip your tea you will feel the heat from the red pepper working. If you do not feel the warmth from the red pepper then add a little more. A quarter to a half teaspoon should be sufficient for most people.
The red pepper will float on top of the water at first. Stir it into the tea and keep the spoon handy, as the red pepper will eventually fall to the bottom of the cup. Just stir to mix the red pepper with the tea before drinking, to make sure you are getting all the red pepper consumed.
Drinking two to three cups of red pepper tea when the sore throat first appears, should help eliminate the soreness and scratchy feeling by the next day. So the next time you are bothered with a sore scratchy throat, just remember to grab your red pepper and conquer the sore throat before it gets out of control.
