Marshmallow Tea Is Apparently A Thing, And It's Good For A Sore Throat

If that sounds disgusting, here are other options from the pros. There are many possible reasons behind a sore throat, but one thing is for sure—they’re never a good time. Between the painful swallowing, dry coughs, and scratchy throat, sometimes all you want is an easy, natural remedy you can reach for quickly to make your symptoms go away. Enter: the best tea for sore throat. FYI, sore throats are typically a result of bacterial or viral infections (think: a cold and the flu) affecting the tissue in our throat, causing inflammation, swelling, and pain, says Robert Glatter, MD, an attending emergency physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. (Fun fact: The medical term for sore throat is pharyngitis.) Though allergies and strep throat could also be to blame, according to the CDC. Thankfully, tea can help relieve the discomfort no matter what the underlying cause is. You probably already know that these leaves offer many potential health benefits, from boosting your immune system to warding off heart disease. Turns out teas can do wonders when you're down with a sore throat too. “Liquids that we take by mouth do not reach the vocal folds directly, but rather go around them into the esophagus,” says Paul Kwak, MD, an otolaryngologist at the NYU Langone Voice Center's Department of Otolaryngology. “So the way that hot or warm liquids, such as tea, can be helpful is by soothing the mucous membranes of the throat, and sometimes with the warmth or heat, increasing blood flow to the tissue.” Adding honey to your cup will make your brew more delicious and calming for your throbbing throat because the sweetener will coat the mucous membranes in your throat and soothe your soreness while minimizing coughing, says Dr. Glatter. There aren't any risks to using tea to quell the inflammation in your throat, but keep in mind that teas should not be used as a substitute for medications. If you have a sore throat and your symptoms persist, it’s best to get it checked out. For a mild case of sore throat, try one of these expert-recommended teas to ease your symptoms.

6 Foods That Are Pretty Bad for Your Heart

You may want to cut back. The health of your heart matters. The stronger your heart the less risk you have of debilitating diseases and the greater chance you have to enjoy your life to the absolutely fullest for as long as you can. So, yeah, it's pretty important. One of the best ways to keep your heart in the best shape possible (other than regular exercise, of course) is a diet rich in heart-healthy foods. That also means limiting the amount of foods that aren't so healthy for your heart. To spotlight which of these foods you should watch out for, take the advice of Kelly Jones, M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D. And, look, if you happen to find yourself in a situation where you find yourself eating one of these foods, resist the urge to beat yourself up about it or, worse yet, think that you have to endure some kind of wacky juice cleanse. (General note: You never have to endure some kind of wacky juice cleanse.) It's not like a partaking in any of these foods on a semi-occasional basis is going to drive a stake through your heart. It's an overabundance or over-reliance on these foods in your diet that leads to heart health complications. So make sure you're doing both—leaning less on foods that aren't great for your heart and leaning more on foods that are great for your heart—in order to best reap the rewards. Now and far, far into the future.

Need To Get Rid Of A Cough Fast? Try These 12 Remedies You Probably Already Have At Home

What you need if you have allergies, a cold, and more. There are few things in life more annoying than a pesky cough that just won’t go away. A cough could be a simple tickle in the throat, or it can linger after a cold has passed. No matter how long you've been dealing with one, the discomfort may have you wondering about and searching online for how to get rid of a cough in five minutes. The sooner, the better, right? But TBH, a cough is not always bad. Coughing is a reflex that protects our airways and lungs against irritants like dust, germs, and mucus. And occasional coughing is completely normal, according to the American Lung Association. That said, a cough isn’t necessarily something you should just shrug off.“[A] cough has many causes, ranging from a common viral illness to asthma or seasonal allergies to more significant health problems, such as chronic lung conditions, congestive heart failure, or even cancer,” says Michael Hanak, MD, an assistant professor of family medicine at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. Now, some people may develop a cough after becoming infected with COVID-19. A COVD cough is dry and persistent, according to Sioux Falls Specialty Hospital. It is typically accompanied by other symptoms such as chest pains, fatigue, headaches, and shortness of breath. Certain medications could also be to blame, says Dr. Hanak. Environmental triggers like dust, mold, or other pollutants could be a contributing factor as well, either through lung irritation or postnasal drip. Acid reflux is another potential trigger. Given that a cough can be a sign of a condition or totally harmless, when should you see a doctor? “When a cough is present for more than two weeks, it is reasonable to contact a health care provider for additional testing or recommendations,” notes Dr. Hanak. In the meantime, if you’ve just started hacking, you can try to soothe your throat with these remedies.
