Fall has arrived but you can get strep throat anytime of year. This is a post regarding strep throat titled “Can I Get Totally Rid Of Strep Throat Using Herbal Remedies Instead Of Antibiotics?” regarding using herbal remedies instead of antibiotics. We have also included additional links to provide information regarding herbal remedies for strep throat below.
I am almost positive that I have strep throat. I do not like to take antibiotics unless they are absolutely necessary.
Will herbal remedies like colloidal silver or olive leaf extract get rid of this stuff?
well as they said, strep throat is nothing to mess with..if using olive leaf extract be sure to use a good organic tincture like herbpharm
I have read that gargling and drinking and sipping raw apple cider vinegar in water (I add seas salt) will cure a strep throat but you gargling, sip and swallow all day long with coffee or tea you are sipping on all day
But up to you if you want to try it..I am just passing on what I read..I did use it once for what I thought was a strep throat with good results but was not absolutely diagnosed with strep throat (but I think others had it around me)
If it was me and I was dead set against antibiotics or could not afford them, I would use the vinegar, lots of raw garlic, organic olive leaf extract 60 drops maybe 7 times day or even more, grapefruit seed extract and colloidal silver.
I would also take Dr Richard shulze’s supertonic found on the our products page (scroll down at the bottom) at herbdoc.com or make it yourself.
I will go get the directions and be back soon..easy to make
Strep Throat Symptoms
Strep throat symptoms occur after the strep throat incubation period. Strep throat incubation period lasts for three to five days (that’s the average). Strep throat infection is caused by bacteria and spreads very fast. Bacteria can live for quite a long time, which only makes the infection spread easier. Strep throat infection is passed from person to person by close physical contact.
Children and people who work in crowded places are exposed to this infection more than others are. Also, family members are at risk, since physical contact with an infected family member can hardly be avoided (he/she lives in the same house).
Strep throat symptoms are throat soreness (here we have to make a distinction between sore throat and strep throat. The first one is viral infection while the second one is bacterial infection. Those two cannot be treated with the same medications and they differ in many ways); there’s pain while swallowing, lymph nodes become swollen, yellow or white spotting occurs on the tonsils and the throat; throat turns red and fever can also occur. Some patients can get a skin rash that is quite fast spreading. First it appears on the chest or back, and then starts to spread onto other body parts. After some time the rash will start disappearing and the skin will peal on those spots. It can be accompanied by fever (“scarlet fever”).
Strep Throat Symptoms in Adults
We have mentioned some of the most common strep throat symptoms. Those are the symptoms common in both adults and children.
Still, some symptoms are more characteristic for adults: discomfort, unease, nausea and loss of appetite, pain in muscles, fever and stiffness of joints. Body temperature grows higher when the fever starts. Vomiting may also occur so as pain in the abdomen. Lymph nodes get swollen and the throat turns red, so as the tonsils. Rash is possible to appear in both adults and children, accompanied by scarlet fever. Adults are often too busy and it may take some time until they even notice that they have symptoms different that those of cold. This can put them at risk, so as their families and co-workers, since strep throat infection is a fast-spreading one.
Strep Throat Symptoms in Children
Strep throat symptoms in children are not very different from those in adults, but there are some differences due to one’s age. When it comes to infants, the symptom that will probably occur first is yellow nose drainage (sometimes it is green).
It is accompanied by an appetite loss and mild fever. It is very important to know these symptoms, since your infant cannot really tell you what’s bothering him. Toddlers have throat soreness first and they can tell you about the pain while swallowing. They do not have much appetite and lymph nodes are visibly swollen. Children who are older experience stronger fevers and may complain about the tonsils and throat. They also experience painful swallowing. Other symptoms are similar to those in adults.
