How to Treat a Sore Throat Naturally | Dr. Josh Axe

Hey guys, Dr. Axe here. In this video, I’m
going to share with you my top natural strategies to cure a sore throat, and my top home remedies
for sore throats. And these are very easy things or simple things that a lot of you
guys probably already have stocked in your at-home medicine cabinet. There are really four main things that can
help you cure a sore throat very, very fast. The first thing that you can be doing is olive
leaf extract. Olive leaf extract, you can find at any health food store out there today. But olive leaf can kill off bad bacteria in
your body, fungus, and especially, it’s an anti-viral. So doing olive leaf extract is
one of the top things you can do to help you cure a sore throat. The second thing you can start doing is colloidal
silver. Colloidal silver actually has anti-viral and anti-bacterial activity in it, and so
it is very, very powerful as well at things that can typically cause a sore throat. And actually, one of the best things you can
do with colloidal silver is you can buy a colloidal silver throat spray, or put colloidal
silver in a spray bottle and just spray it right in the back of your throat. Very, very
effective natural treatment when it comes to treating sore throat. The third thing you can do is sea salt. Salt
water actually has a soothing effect, and that can actually help naturally treat a sore
throat as well. So again, if you do have a sore throat, I recommend doing a little bit
of sea salt mixed in warm water and gargling that several times a day. That can help you
kick a sore throat. And last but not least, using essential oils,
specifically lemon oil, oregano oil, and peppermint essential oil. Those are what I believe to
be the three most effective essential oils at naturally curing a sore throat. And so one of the other things you might even
consider doing is taking a colloidal silver, putting that in a spray bottle along with
a mixture of oregano oil, lemon essential oil, and peppermint oil and making a spray
and doing that every 30 minutes. That will naturally help your body heal a sore throat. Now, a few other tips that are vitally important
when healing a sore throat is getting plenty of rest and sleep. You really want to give
your body as much time to recover as you can. So try to sleep 9 to 10 hours a night. Getting
to bed early is very, very important. One of the other things you may consider doing
as well is really changing your diet, laying off the sugar, grains, and doing mostly bone
broth. I recommend making a homemade vegetable soup, basically doing something like chicken
broth with vegetables and a little bit of chicken. But again, broth, vegetables and a chicken
in crock pot is ideal. So doing that vegetable soup for every meal throughout the day along
with those natural treatments of olive leaf extract, sea salt, the essential oils, and
again, colloidal silver, and doing that as a throat spray. Those are some of the fastest
ways to naturally cure a sore throat. And if you want to learn other natural home
remedies to cure a sore throat, you can go and visit my website, That’s

  1. Thank you Doctor. God bless you. I will definitely try this out.

    It's summer here and I've come down with a very bad cold. I feel like I've got broken glass in my throat. I just hope it clears up soon. 🙁

  2. Salt water never helped me. You say these stop sore throats but then you indicate you have to keep using it so it sounds like it really doesn't work. Mayberrysilver works. The only product I know for a fact stops coughs and sore throats almost within seconds is a new product called Azenify. Go to and send a message asking for a free sample. Azenify stops coughing caused by virus or allergies in seconds. Azenify is the only other product that actually works.

  3. How to Cure a SORE THROAT INSTANTLY. – " Sleep as much as possible or go to a shop and buy some olive leaves because I suppose that you don't have any.". Bam instantly oh wait…

  4. I got over my sore throat by getting water and putting it in the microwave for 3 min then I get a tea bag and add lemon and honey and stir it and I started to feel so much better but it does take time to get better

  5. I literally can’t swallow food that’s how swollen my throat is and I’m literally crying 24/7 I never have normal colds where it’s just a cough or a runny nose, I always get the worst of the worst

  6. I have a SEVERE sore throat that has been the same pain for almost four days straight! Nothing is helping me ?? I tried ginger and honey and lemon, salt water, OTC medication, ice chips, and more and nothing is working 🙁 wish me luck that it’ll get better soon!

  7. You lost me at colloidal silver. You ever see that guy that turned blue from it? I’d like to see if there are any studies that show any benefits of colloidal silver. I’m not 100% sure it doesn’t work but I haven’t seen much that says it does either.

  8. Best remedy: Mix Maalox and liquid Benadryl (equal parts) and gargle. Take Advil. Chloraseptic spray, cough drops and gargle with warm salt water and use saline nose spray frequently.

  9. Go to a Doctor…get checked for strep that can ruin your heart valves…instead of running to the health food store. Or, do this as well as seeking professional help.

  10. Someone said crystal meth was good for a soar throat. I went to rite aid and they didn’t seem to have it. I’m gonna have to be put on the throat transplant list soon if this doesn’t get better!! Oh dear.

  11. Video Summary:
    1. Olive Leaf Extract
    2. Colloidal Silver
    3. Sea Salt (Warm Water)
    4. Lemon, Peppermint or Organo essential oil
    5. Bone broth
    Also, getting plenty of sleep helps with recovery.

    Love Dr. Axe’s channel ??

  12. Hi Dr. Axe.
    When you mention coloidal silver, you have to mention something about ionic silver or not so no one will be suffering from argyria!!
    Other than that, great video as always ??

  13. Not everybody will be willing to do this, but…. I gargle with bourbon. Specifically Makers Mark, but I’m sure any decent bourbon will do. Pour yourself a couple of shots. Don’t cut it with water, don’t pour it over ice. Take some decent sized sips and gargle with it, for as long as you can with each sip, then swallow it. Repeat till the bourbon is gone. It works for me. The alcohol must burn and clean the throat out. Puts you to sleep, too.

  14. I can tolerate the runny nose, sneezing, fever, cough, headache, neasea etc but absolutely cannot STAND sore throats because they hurt like hell and I can’t eat and it’s all I think about when I have one.

  15. It's 2 am :< wanna get rid this in fastesta fastest waaaay :'< Need to wash my pillows tomorrow because it's full of saliva HAHAHAHAAHAHA gross!

  16. Bruh I'm can only whisper, I can rarely talk, infact BARELY talk after we went to the hospital. And I need it back bc we're gonna sing a frikin song with high notes. WELL FRIKIN'

  17. Please help I don't have these at home and im dying with this sore throat I can even sleep ma head is paining a lot

  18. Thumbs up for not monologing for 11 minutes like the last video I just watched. This video should of been recommend before the English guy. Smh…

  19. Will work for after surgery cause I had surgery yesterday and my neck and throut hurt where I can pick up my head but without it hurting really bad would this work or no

  20. Research is very limited on colloidal silver ingestion.. anybody know if it is really safe to use ? If I would buy a throat spray colloidal silver, could I use this to treat a sore throat which has already started ? Apparently you can get kidney damage from this but not sure as to what this is referred to.. any help or info on this topic would be awesome ??
