For Sore Throats

Colds are caused by viruses that thrive in your nose & throat.

Acupressure for Sore Throats

Although acupressure cannot cure a cold, certain points increase your resistance to future colds.

Heavenly Pillar (B 10) Location: In the hollow below the base of the skull, 3 finger-widths out from the midline

BENEFITS: Relieves sore throat, stress, burnout, neck tension and pain.

Hold the point with your index and middle fingertips as you take long, slow, deep breaths.

Use steady finger pressure directly on the Point. Gradual, steady, penetrating pressure for 2 to 3 minutes is ideal.

A small piece of fresh ginger can be one of the most natural and effective ways for soothing a sore throat. 

Simply place a very thin slice of fresh ginger on the back of your tongue. 

If your throat is sensitive & the ginger feels hot, use a smaller, thinner piece & place it farther back toward your throat.

Keep the ginger in the back of your throat for 5 minutes. Repeat with a fresh piece several times a day as needed.

For fresh Ginger Tea simmer 1/4 cup of chopped ginger root in a few cups of water for 20 minutes to soothe a sore throat.
