[YEA]  02/04/2011: Linda from Fairview, Oklahoma, Usa: "Ice for sore throat. Ice; plain and simple. I have bad sinuse drainage which can really irrtate my throat which can lead to an infection. I can wake up with needles in my throat. Chop up the ice and suck on pieces in the back of your mouth. I don't have an ice crusher so I put cubes in a clean dish towel and whack them with a hammer. This always works. Sometimes with only one treatment."

[YEA]  11/23/2005: Steve from Emmett, Idaho: "I have a couple family favorites to share. #1. Icy Hot rubbed "sparingly" on the full length of the front of your neck then wrap a hand towel around your neck and pin it with a safty pin so it stays in place. Go to bed and the next morning your sore throat is usually gone. You may want to do a test spot on your neck to see how sensitive your skin is to the Icy Hot. It will warm up your neck and possibly be uncomfortable for 5 to 10 minutes then it calms down and feels soothing. #2 The other remedies we have used successfully to fight a sore throat are gargling with Colloidal Silver or Grapefruit Extract. These are two of the strongest and safest (non-toxic) natural antibiotics available. To your health!"

[YEA]  11/10/2012: Mundaring from Perth, Western Australia: "Over the past 6 months since discovering Earth Clinic I have revised how I deal with health issues. Waking up with a sore throat I would generally have tried an OTC remedy. I decided to gargle a few drops of iodine in a teaspoon of filtered water. I thank God it worked within 30 minutes to alleviate my pain. VOILA!"


[YEA]  07/02/2012: Sarah from Dallas, Tx: "I have tonsillitis with tonsil exulates (could be strep, but the pain isn't severe enough, though I have been taking wild oregano oil internally that would have been fighting the infection).

My throat was really hurting to swallow, and I had mucus sitting at the back of my throat that I couldn't get rid of (I don't have a cold, cough and bad allergies right now). It made my mouth taste awful. I read that applying iodine to your wrists and also gargling with a diluted solution can help. I did it last night, and not only did I wake up with my throat much less sore, but the feeling of mucus at the back is nearly entirely gone as well as the bad taste. I used Nascent Iodine, but I believe Lugol's can be used as well."

[YEA]  11/23/2012: Brenda from Toronto, Ontario: "Iodine paintingworks for sore throat. Please note that iodine can be dangerous to those who have Hashimoto's disease. If you are hypothyroid, best to check with your doctor first."


[YEA]  06/05/2009: Dottie from South Georgi: "iodine for sore throat: I use iodine at the first sign of a sore throat. Works every time. Rub the iodine on your neck around the areas that it hurts inside.( I get a lot of only hurts on one side sore throats) Also the veins on the inside of your wrists........ these are closest to the skin surface, rub some on them as well..."

[NAY]  05/06/2008: Lauren from San Diego, CA: "Iodine to cure sore throat- It didn't work for me! I was so surprised and a little skeptical because so many were saying all you do is rub some iodine on your wrists and neck. I've had a sore throat for 4 days now and I tried it in desperation, but nothing happened. I have a big presentation tomorrow and all I have to show for my herbal remedy to cure my excurciatingly sore throat are yellow neck and wrists! Maybe I did it wrong, but gargling 1 tsp of the Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of warm water worked better for me!!"


[YEA]  04/02/2008: Nancy from Austin, TX: "Swab throat with iodine---never fails to kill a sore throat, so just'the "sniffles" are left."


[YEA]  01/31/2008: Chris from Battle Creek, MI: "For almost 3 days my daughter was complained of her throat feeling like she was swallowing knives. Nothing would take it away. After having tried the egg whites for her fever and it working I came back to this site and sure enough - a remedy for a sore throat...IODINE! I put some on her wrists and on the sides of her throat. It took a little bit - like hours, but her sore throat went away and has not returned since! It has been almost a week now! Thanks again for the wonderful remedies!!"


[YEA]  01/20/2008: John from Panama City, FL: "Iodine for Sore Throats/Ear Aches. I'm trying this for the very first time. Let me add this word of caution: KEEP TOWELS HANDY! Wherever you normally sit - say, a couch or favorite easy chair - place towels where your wrists and hands would normally rest. This is especially important if, like me, you sweat profusely even when still. I also suggest wearing clothing that you won't mind possibly getting stained, as the iodine WILL get all over."


[YEA]  04/28/2007: Igor from Toronto, Canada: "WOOOW, Iodine actually works, what I did was put Iodine all over my neck and then put a teaspoon of honey into my mouth, after an hour of doing this my throat sore was GONE. I am truly amazed for the people that have put up, to use Iodine, it really helped me THANK YOU!"


[YEA]  05/14/2006: Renee from Houston, TX: "Iodine cured my swollen saliva/throat glands. After 2 horrible nights of restless sleep. i found this website in searching for a cure (non-prescription) Iodine was suggested. So about noon today, painted the wrists and throat areas. I found Iodine at a local drug store. It was under $2. I took a one hour nap and already felt better. The prior two days, it hurt to swallow, it was horrible to eat or drink, burning sensation during both. I ate watermelon and when i would drink i would drink as fast as possible. by 2 pm i was at a soup and salads (buffet restaurant) enjoying soup, more fruit, drinking. it pretty much took care of my sore throat and swollen glands. i read here that it takes care of skin tags. i placed iodine on the 3 i have and hopefully they will be gone. i will report back as to whether or not it works, but as far as the initial success and how great i feel, i have a positive outlook."


[YEA]  03/14/2006: Hannah from Morgantown: "I tried it and in like 10 mins i already felt a difference this stuff is amazing!"


[YEA]  02/07/2006: Quita from Atlanta, GA: "I had a severe sore throat recently (I could not even swallow) and my good friend suggested painting the inside of my wrist with iodine. I thought she was crazy. But it worked! The pain was completely gone the next morning. Shortly thereafter my son became sick with a bad cold. Although she recommended the iodine for a sore throat, I used it on my 3-year old and the next day he was 100% better. I googled iodine cures and discovered this site. I am convinced!"


[YEA]  02/06/2006: Seymore from Portland Oregon: "the Iodine cure worked the best, at first i thought it was weird trying to cure something that was affecting your body at the throat and cure it by painting iodine at the wrists. i also tried it because i had iodine at the time. overall it was the best cure."
