*T**his simple home remedy has worked 100% of the time for anyone that
 has tried it. Instead of** **suffering with a sore throat for a week or
 more, you can drive it away immediately, sometimes in less than a day.

 However, this remedy is not medical advice; it is a shared experience that
 really works! This site is not for profit; it's aim is simply to help
 people cure their sore throats.

 This remedy is salt, and not just about gargling saltwater, it is actually
 about using common table salt as it is.
 What you have to do is: tilt your head backwards and shake a little bit of
 salt straight into the back of your throat. Make sure you shake it straight
 into your throat, onto the base of your tongue and not over the middle
or the tip your tongue (this way you will not suffer from any unpleasant taste).


 After that, do not swallow your saliva, just let the salt dissolve right there on the back of your throat, letting the salt stay there for as long as you possibly can. If you're using a salt shaker, shake 2 to 6 times depending how bad your sore throat is. If you're using a fast food style paper saltshaker, you should shake about 1/4 of the packet directly into your throat.
 Also highly suggested, is to shake an even larger amount of salt into your
 throat right before you go to sleep for the night. During your sleep,
 without food or drink, bacteria thrive without any interruption to
 incubation and growth. Therefore, using salt while you are asleep can be
 extremely effective. Keep a salt shaker near your bed. If you wake up in
 the middle of the night feeling sore, you can shake some more salt into
 your throat.
 Salt is a very old remedy that kills bacteria. In the old days they
 traditionally used salt to preserve meat and fish.

 Why? Because salt attracts water and attacks the bacteria cell walls,
 causing the bacteria to dehydrate and self-destruct in the process.
 If your sore throat is really severe you can use salt as often as every 30
 minutes. Use it as soon as you feel the first symptoms of a sore throat and
 the earlier you use it, the faster you’ll get rid of that sore throat.
 Salt is available nearly everywhere. You can stop in to any fast food place
 on any street and grab some. Don’t wait around trying to figure out whether
 or not your sore throat is serious. Instead you can use this quick **sore
 throat cure* <http://www.throatsore.com/sore-throat-cures.php>*.


As soon as  you feel the first signs of a sore throat, the  salt immediately. Gargling salt water is not nearly as effective since the  concentration of salt is not high enough to take care of the problem.


Also, gargling water requires a cup of water and the time to dissolve the salt in it, yet more inconvenience that makes you wait for relief.
 Not all sore throats are the result of a bacteria infection. Sometimes the
 cause is a virus, commonly known as influenza virus. Many times your sore
 throat starts as a viral infection which develops into a bacterial
 infection. Salt is intended to fight only the bacteria, not the virus.

Therefore salt might not be totally effective if you are suffering from a
 viral **throat infection* <http://www.throatsore.com/throat-infection.php>*.

 Nevertheless, you really have nothing to lose by using salt. According to
 experience, salt can be extremely effective in most all cases, depending on
 the cause of your sore throat.
 A sore throat is also often the first stage of a common cold, also known as
 the Flu. First to arrive is the sore throat, followed by nasal congestion
 and coughing. If you can take care of it fast, you won't wear down your
 immune system fighting the sore throat and your immune system has more
 energy to fight the other cold symptoms Therefore, using salt could also
 shorten the total duration of suffering from the common cold.
