Hi,
Virul infections, bacterial infections, irritants and injuries can cause a sore throat.
Sore throat symptoms may be accmpanied. by coughing , sneezing , fever , tonsils , chronic sinusities, step throat and allergies.
Try to rest your voice for the day. Avoid straining your throat by talking too much, especially talking lowdly.
Avoid fried or cold foods , which can aggravate a sore throat.
Sufficiant intake of water helps in washing away infections quickly from your system.
My advice is;
Gargle with infusion made from HENNA LEAVES heals sore throat as it has anti bacterial
Gargle with 2 tablespoons of SESAME OIL three times a day.
Apply paint in the throat with GARLIC JUICE + HONEY mix
Chew THALISHADI VATAKAM as lozenges.
Take SEPTILIN tablet twice daily..

1. Post nasal drip is present: r/ acid reflux.
2. any recent bacterial (inflammation) -viral (common cold) infection.
3. any addiciton? or possible Chronic fatigue syndrome
4. apart from saline water gargles you can suck cough lozenges which will stimulate saliva production and helping in keeping the throat moist and thereby reducing irritation.
5. if its troublesome at work, try using cough syrup which is non drowsy, and at night you can choose between codeine/guaphenesin
6. taken water which is sugary/fruit juices to stay well hydrated.
7. herbal tea are major anti oxidants which improves immunity and fight against infection
8. If you are non-vegetarian age old remedy:chicken soup can be tried.
9. Adequate bed rest and voice rest.
10. consult for a throat swab

hi Katie
The reason for your chronic fatigue needs be probed. You are pointing at hot flushes , is there any History of hormonal imbalance or anxiety, what about hyperacidity , i believe your soar throat may have some link with abdomen. On hearing from you I can better advice you about role of herbs in your case.
