I've had a sore throat for a few days, slowly getting worse with pain on talking or swallowing and eventually losing my voice. I saw the pickle jar in my fridge and idk why, but I grabbed it and chugged a few gulps and low and behold, my sore throat was instantly relieved! Unfortunately, not a cure, and doesn't last very long, but when you're in that much pain, it's worth it. I decided to Google pickle juice for sore throat and came across this thread.
I have a bad cold with loads of congestion. My throat isn't exactly sore, but I was wondering if pickle juice would help my congestion? My boyfriend told me to try it, but I'm a little skeptical. When he was in High School he got sick a week before a Choral Concert, the night before he drank pickle juice (He had a sore throat, cough, congestion etc.) and it seemed to help him pretty well.
I tried pickle juice for my sore throat. It tasted good and made my sore throat feel a lot better! I drank it from the bottle.
I tried pickle brine juice for a sore throat and had instant pain relief thank you so much!
WOW!! Love this web site... Found the pickle juice suggestion a minute ago and tried it. I was amazed to feel it easing the pain as I was gargling!! I did not completely go away, but I no longer want to cry when I swallow. Maybe I didn't drink enough. I gargled then drank about a tbsp. I will try more.
How much juice and how often are you talking about the salty brine when you make pickles?
Pickle Juice for sore throat
The pickle juice remedy didnt work for me as much as Id hoped...I love pickles...I warmed up 4 TBS of pickle juice and gargled before swallowing. It did reduce the severity but it didnt get rid of it ...The pain came back after 15 minutes...
I tried the apple cider vinegar, honey and hot water for my sore throat and the pain went away almost immediately after the first sip. I looked in my kitchen cabinets and couldn't find any apple cider vinegar. I wasn't about to go out and buy some either due to the fact that it was pouring down rain. I didn't want to get any sicker from the upper respiratory tract infection than I was already. I used 3 teaspoons of vinegar from a jar of pickles in my refrigerator, 3 teaspoons of honey and 8 ounces of hot tap water. I stirred it together in a coffee mug until it was completely mixed and took a drink of it. After the first sip I noticed improvement in the pain and I realized it did not taste as bad as I thought it would. True, I used vinegar from a jar of pickles but it still helped my throat pain.
I read a few remedies and cayenne pepper seemed a little drastic (eating crushed red pepper in my food eased it temporarily) but i came across the pickle juice remedy and thought WOW that would be strange if it worked! Well i just gargled 3 minutes ago and swallowed a couple mouthfuls. Already (just a few moments later) my throat doesn't hurt at all! Its still uncomfortable swallowing but breakthing and talking are back to normal! thanks guys! ^.^
I had been sick all day. My throat hurt so bad, I didn't even want to swallow. I googled "relief for sore throat" and the pickle juice idea came up! It works! It really honestly works! I'm gonna remember this!
Pickle juice for Sore Throat: I had a sore throat when I woke up this morning, so I decided to try the gargling pickle brine cure, by gargling and drinking a shot glass full of brine. I absolutely can't stand pickles, but it really worked! My throat feels a lot better. Even though it tastes foul, I would recommend this cure for anyone, whether you like pickles or not.
I tried both the warmed pickle juice and the honey, apple cidar vinegar & hot water drinks. Neither one got totally rid of the sore throat but neither one tasted too bad. The honey & ACV relieved the most pain. The pickle juice just tasted good! I would recommend either one for temporary relief....
I tried the pickle juice remedy just now for this intense sore throat I'm having, and I was very surprised when it actually worked! I heated about 4 tsps of it and drank it.
I Google sore throat remedies and i cam upon this site. I clicked on pickle juice brine (I LOVE PICKLES, VERY MUCH) I heated up 3 tablespoons of pickle juice for 16 secs and it worked. It did not entirely kill my cold or my sore throat, it just soothes it for a while. My throat does feel a little better now!!
