Caress The Wounded Sore Throat With Ginger Grass Oil

I can very well understand the condition of developing a sore throat before any grand celebration…I mean seriously it can be so painful and in a way so much irritating for not being able to enjoy the cold…lip-smacking desserts and other delicacies just because of having developed that ‘sore’ throat…

And even if one plans to simply ignore the pain and inflammation in the throat for the sake of tasting those tempting eats…then putting the thing in mouth is still fine but to let it pass through the throat…it feels like something is scraping the throat to get down and there is sudden surge of inflammation…oh! It is pathetic…

But…I wonder why do we have to worry…when we are blessed with natural herbs to tame these sudden wild minor problems…Ginger…the key to it oil…Will move on to Ginger grass oil in the second half of this article…

But before we move ahead…Understand what are the major reasons that we develop a sore throat…

Owe it to dry air….This is actually quite common….Winter…the peak time for this problem…If the air is dry…your throat can dry out a bit with your breathing and become sore….So that’s why the temperature in the house should be a little moist…target that first…

Okay another reason can be when one already has cold…Coughing by itself can make your throat feel sore….So can postnasal drip…mucus from the nose dripping down the back of the throat….Well…it does the ‘pestering wonder’…develops a sore throat…

Okay…this one might be a little unexpected for you…but trust me this is the most neglected yet potent causes of developing a sore throat….virus! Yes! I mean it…There are several viruses that attack the mucus membranes of the throat…the tonsils…or both….These viruses will often make your throat feel sore….Some of these viruses…like the adenoviruses…will also cause pus to accumulate on the tonsils just like strep does…and we need to test to see whether strep is the problem….

Streptococcus…Another major cause…Ever heard of it? Well…I won’t lie…even I hadn’t…Stumbled across the word while researching about this blog…It is basically a bacteria…Although there are other bacteria that can attack the throat…the most common bacterial cause of strep throat is Streptococcus pyogenes…or “group A strep”…As far as other bacteria are concerned…there are several different kinds of strep…which are similar overall but differ in some biochemical details…and…because of those details…in the way they infect people….S. pyogenes…or group A…is the kind that usually infects throats and causes scarlet fever…
