Strep throat treatment – 3 home remedies that might work

Strep throat is one of the most common infections, especially in children. The usual treatment involves administration of antibiotics.

They are efficient in killing the bacteria that causes the infection, but they also destroy the good bacteria that helps our immunity. This is why some infections just keep coming back again and again.

Garlic honey cayenne strep throat

Many choose natural remedies for streptococcal infections because they help the body create new antibodies and fight the disease.

Choose just one of the first two remedies, not both at once. 


1. Garlic cayenne honey strep throat

This remedy is recommended by dr. John R. Christopher. Those who have tried it appreciate its efficiency.

You will need:

• 1 tablespoon of honey
• 3 cloves of fresh garlic
• ¼ – ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper


Mix the first two ingredients in a bowl, then add the chopped or grated garlic. Mix well, until you reach the consistency of a syrup. Transfer the mixture into a glass jar and keep it at room temperature.

How to take it

Take ½ teaspoon of the mixture every 30 minutes.


2. Echinaceea, figs, cayenne and peppermint

This remedy is good for the throat and tonsils.

You will need:

• 470 ml of echinaceea tea
• 120 ml of figs syrup
• ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
• ¼ teaspoon of peppermint essential oil


First, prepare the echinaceea tea. While it’s still hot, add the fig syrup and cayenne pepper. Stir to reach a smooth consistency. After the mixture has cooled down, add the essential oil and mix.

How to take it

Mix 2 droppers of the mixture with 4 droppers of water. Use the solution for gargle.

If you want to use this remedy for children, half the dose to 1 dropper of the mixture and 3 droppers of water.

3. Salt gargle

This remedy has a calming effect on a sore throat. Mix ¼ teaspoon of salt with ¼ cup of boiling water until the salt dissolves completely.

Gargle with this saline solution and spit. You can do this every hour if necessarily. To make it more powerful, add 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the mixture.
