Nutrition For Kids: Sore Throats

be well eat well kids Jul 21, 2020

I've always been a little wary of cough medicine. As a kid, I used it any time I had a cough. Sometimes it worked, but most of the time, it didn't make any difference at all. I tried all the brands, tea and honey, lemon, etc. I tried all... the... things...

Two years ago I found the MediHerb product called Herbal Throat Spray, and now, I keep it on hand all... the... time... Literally, it even travels with me and stays on my nightstand for any middle of the night coughing.  

I use this spray not only for myself, but for my daughter who is now 2 years old anytime she gets a cough, sore throat, or starts getting sick.  (I started using it with her when she was about 12-18 months when needed).  

This spray is a combination of several herbs all with a specific purpose to help sore throat symptoms! 

Here are the great herbs (and their purpose) in the spray:

  • Marshmallow Root: A very soothing herb that helps soothe throats and coughs.
  • Sage: An herb that helps dry things out (think mucous, or any other excess fluids). It helps reduce spasms in the smooth muscle, and is also antimicrobial.
  • Calendula: An anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, swollen lymph gland supporter herb.
  • Echinacea root: An herb to enhance the immune system, reduce inflammation, and help the lymph system! 
  • Myrrh: An herb that is antibacterial, antimicrobial, supports the lymph and colds and coughs.
  • Clove: Helps to reduce spasms, laryngitis, and also provides a little pain relief! 

Because this is an herbal product, please connect with me if you have any questions or how to use it for you and your family of all ages and sizes. (because little ones and big people need different amounts!)
