Laryngitis Home Remedies

Laryngitis Home Remedies

1. Rest your voice: 

When you have laryngitis, your vocal cords are swollen and irritated. They need time to heal. Try to avoid situations that require a lot of talking or shouting.

If you have to talk in a meeting or in front of a group, avoid the natural temptation to strain your voice further to be heard. Try calling into a speaker phone that can be turned up or using another amplifying device.

Singing will make your vocal cords more inflamed, so take a few days off. Use your voice as infrequently as you can, at a volume that feels natural to you.

2. Gargle warm salt water:

You can soothe a sore and irritated throat with warm salt water. 

3. Suck on lozenges: 

Throat lozenges help add moisture to your throat, relieve pain, reduce coughing. 

4. Have a tea with honey:

There’s nothing more soothing for an irritated throat than a warm cup of tea.

5. Lemonade: 

6. Ginger root:

Ginger root has many health benefits. It’s been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. Ginger works to suppress the dry, irritating cough that often accompanies laryngitis. It can also help treat throat infections.

7. Fresh garlic:

It’s possible that the antibacterial properties in garlic can help you fight off infections, such as sinusitis and bronchitis.

8. Drink a lot of fluids:

When you’re sick, it’s always a good idea to drink plenty of fluids. This is also true when you have throat irritation. Water, juice, clear broth, and tea will help keep you hydrated, loosen phlegm, and flush out mucus.

Things to Avoid:

  • Singing and shouting: Don’t add any unnecessary stress to your vocal cords. This will just lead to more inflammation and a longer healing time.
  • Alcohol: Staying hydrated will help you heal. Avoid alcohol, which has a dehydrating effect.
  • Decongestants: Over-the-counter cold medicines that contain decongestants can dry out your throat, causing further irritation.
  • Smoking: Any type of smoking, including e-cigarettes, can irritate your throat, cause coughing, and prolong healing time.
