From the end of autumn to early spring, the Damocles sword of colds and viral respiratory diseases hangs over us. Today we will talk about how to avoid such health problems and, in particular, how to make the throat more resistant to various infections.
Step One: Prevention
We all know that the general hardening of the body makes our health stronger. The same rule is true for strengthening local immunity – for example, the immunity of the tissues of the nasopharynx and throat.
Try contrast hardening of the throat. For 30 days, gargle with one glass of cool water and one glass of hot water for the daily procedure (the liquid should not be either ice or boiling water).
Alternate between different temperatures, finishing with hot water.
Water can be replaced with a weak solution of table or sea salt (1 teaspoon per glass of water), herbal infusion (1 tablespoon of dry herbal mixture per glass).
As natural antiseptics for the preparation of such infusions, you can use calendula, eucalyptus leaves, pharmacy chamomile, sage, elderberry, St. John’s wort, wild rosemary, lime blossom.
A kind of fitness is also useful for the throat. A set of special exercises will strengthen the muscles of the throat, which will make it more resistant to cold and infections.
Start with strokes: turning your head to the right, stroke the neck on the left with your right hand, repeat the same for the left side.
Then pat from top to bottom and back, making light percussive movements with the palm of the hand in the front of the neck and upper chest. Tilt your head according to the algorithm: down – back – straight – right – left.
And now you can arrange singing lessons. Quietly pronounce vowel sounds in pairs: a – i, o – e, u – u, s – and, uh – e. Then repeat these sounds already without a voice, but with effort, straining your throat and opening your mouth wide.
In conclusion, sing the sound “a” softly to any motive. Each exercise of the complex should have 8-10 repetitions.
Also review your diet. It should contain a lot of foods rich in vitamin C – these are citrus fruits, onions, garlic, cranberries, sauerkraut, rose hips, bell peppers, black currants.
In the season of colds and beriberi, it will not be superfluous to take a multivitamin selected after consultation with your doctor.
Step two: treatment
If the infection has already attacked you or someone close to you, it’s time to take urgent action. An effective but mild anti-inflammatory drug can help a sore throat.
For example, in the practice of Russian and foreign otolaryngologists, the preparation Tantum® Verde has adequately proven itself.
It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antiseptic and antibacterial effects.
Tantum® Verde is used in the treatment of various inflammatory diseases of the throat and oral cavity: pharyngitis, tonsillitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, etc.
The sore throat quickly recedes, since the mechanism of action of the drug is aimed at reducing inflammation in the tissues affected by the infection.
Tantum® Verde is available as lozenges, spray and topical solution (gargle) – a very easy to use variety!
The drug is sold in pharmacies without a prescription, but it is not recommended to take it for more than 7 days without consulting a doctor. Tantum® Verde can be used during pregnancy and lactation.
Adults and children over 3 years of age are prescribed 1 (3 mg) tablet of Tantum® Verde 3-4 times a day. Tablets should be kept in the mouth until completely resorbed (for a greater effect, preferably as long as possible).
Tantum® Verde as a topical solution is recommended for adults and children over 12 years of age. Use 15 ml (a measuring cup is attached) to rinse the mouth and throat 2-3 times a day.
Spray Tantum® Verde is the ideal solution for young children, although it is suitable for all age groups (1-4 sprays per day every 1.5-3 hours).
