Relieving a sore throat with acupoints

“”You’re having a sore throat? It must be internal heat in your body!””
“”Eating some throat lozenges should help.””
“”Drink some honey water!””

These are the typical remedies people would suggest for sore throat. From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, some sore throats are caused by excess internal heat or wind-heat. Other causes include yin deficiency and dryness. COVID-19 patients may also experience a sore throat due to heat-dampness. If you experience discomfort in your throat, it is recommended to consult a doctor for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

To alleviate symptoms during recovery, adjusting your diet is crucial. This includes consuming light meals, avoiding rich and spicy foods, and abstaining from alcohol. Also, avoid consuming ingredients that are warm in nature like chicken, beef, lamb, and nuts. Applying pressure to specific acupoints can help increase blood circulation, promote internal heat elimination, and achieve a cooling effect.
