Hoarseness/Laryngitis Home Remedies

The trouble with laryngitis is that you have to wait until you don't have it before you can tell anyone you had it.

Rest your vocal cords as much as possible. If you must talk, speak in a normal voice, letting the sound come from your diaphragm instead of your throat. Don't whisper! Whispering tightens the muscles of your voice box, and puts more stress on your vocal cords than does talking in your normal voice.

Natural home remedies

  • Take horseradish or lobelia extract in capsule form.
  • Add a little honey to the juice of 10 basil leaves and lick slowly. A spoonful is sufficient to restore the voice.
  • Another excellent gargle is made from onion syrup, honey and lemon. To make the onion syrup: slice three large onions and put them in four or five cups of water; simmer until syrupy; strain. Next, put five or six tablespoonful of the syrup into a glass of warm water, along with a tablespoon of honey and a dash of lemon. Sip slowly.
  • Drink a mixture of 2 teaspoons of onion juice and 1 teaspoon of honey.

Dose: Take 3 teaspoons every three hours. .

  • Drink a cup of hot peppermint tea with a teaspoon of honey. After a hard day at the office, it's very relaxing for the entire body as well as the throat.

Buddhist's Secret

  • In 1 cup of water, simmer 1/2 cup of raisins for 20 minutes. Let it cool, then eat it all. This is a Tibetan remedy. It must work because we've never met anyone from Tibet with laryngitis.
  • Boil 1 pound of black beans in 1 gallon of water for one hour. Strain.

Dose: Take 6 ounces of bean water an hour before each meal. The beans can be eaten during mealtime.

  • When you're hoarse and hungry, eat baked apples. To prepare them, core four apples and peel them about halfway down from the top. Place them in a greased dish with about 1/2 inch of water. Drop a teaspoon of raisins into each apple core, then drizzle a teaspoon of honey into each core and over the tops of the apples. Cover and bake in a 350° F oven for 40 minutes. Baste a few times with pan juices during the cooking time.

Dose: Eat the apples warm or at room temperature. As they say, an apple a day.. .you know the rest.

  • If your cold seemed to settle in your throat in the form of hoarseness and congestion, peel and mince an entire bulb of garlic. Cover all the little pieces with raw honey and let it stand for two hours. Take a teaspoon of the honey/ garlic mixture every hour. Just swallow it down without chewing the garlic. That way you won't have garlic on your breath.
  • Grate radishes and squeeze them through cheesecloth to get radish juice. Let a teaspoon of the juice slide down your throat every half-hour.

Singer's Solution

  • This is a popular Russian remedy for what they call "singer's sore throat." It promises to restore the singer's voice to normal in a single day. Incidentally, you don't have to be a singer to try this formula.

Take 1/2 cup of anise seeds and 1 cup of water and boil them slowly for 50 minutes. Strain out the seeds, then stir 1/4 cup of raw honey into the anise-seed water and add 1 tablespoon of cognac.

Dose: Take 1 tablespoon every half-hour.
