sore throat remedies
In most forums, when parents ask for help with sore throats it is clear they are afraid of strep throat. Streptococcus has gotten quite the bad rap. There is, of course, the risk of strep throat turning into rheumatic fever, endocarditis, or sepsis. But we imagine to that be the rule, when its truly the exception. Streptococcus bacteria, just like any other bacteria, was never put on earth to hurt us! In the words of Dr. Kent 'the bacterium is just an innocent little feller'. It is when our bodies are weakened by poor epigenetics, nutritional deficiencies, environmental toxins and/or vaccines, these naturally occurring organisms begin to seem like a threat. Whether a sore throat or Strep throat diagnosis, homeopathy helps all the same!
**Remember the risk for Strep progressing into something more comes with NO treatment, with homeopathy YOU ARE TREATING, just with alternative medicines. Homeopathics will strengthen the body so that if the sore throat or strep comes back, the body will know how to defend itself.
**In the case of bacteria (like strep or bacterial infection in general) I will never recommend biocides like colloidal silver, oil of oregano, tea tree oils or grapefruit seed extract. These act just like antibiotics, killing the good with the bad. So while they will provide relief, you have done nothing to strengthen your immune response.
