The remedies for hoarseness include foods with anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and mucilage that relieve discomfort and promote a speedy recovery:
- The omega-3 fatty acids found in oily fish and nuts have anti-inflammatory properties. Oily fish should be cooked and chopped nuts. Some fruits and vegetables such as carrots, pumpkin, tangerines and oranges are rich in beta-carotene which the body converts into vitamin A, promoting regeneration of mucosal surfaces.
- Onions and garlic are foods with properties to kill germs that cause hoarseness for their antibacterial, expectorant and mucolytic.
- Finally, a glass of warm water with lemon and honey has a soothing antiseptic and the lining of the airways.
