If the throat infection is Helicobacter Pylori, a very slow growing tough dual skinned bacteria with a tail, then the Manuka Honey would do the job.
But you need to buy Manuka Honey with a MGO rating (Methyglyoxal) rating of at least 80. The MGO rating is calculated when building the batch. Manuka Honey is made in hives put into the bush by helicopters amongst Manuka scrub.
If you get Acid Reflux, this is an indicator that you will be infected with H. Pylori.
Put a teaspoon of the Manuka Honey in your mouth under your tongue each day for 7 days. It will mix with the mucous in your mouth and spread. I would not take Manuka Honey long term after reading Metabolical by Dr Robert Lustig. Methyglyoxal is a result of Fructose processing in the body - he talks about the Maillard Reaction.
But Helicobacter Pylori is a tough bacteria. It can survive in Hydrochloric acid in the stomach and because it exists on the 'skin', antibiotics have trouble getting to it. Helicobacter Pylori is known for being able to infect the mouth, nose, sinuses, oesophagus all the way down to the stomach. It has trouble surviving in the intestines because other bacteria eat it.
When fixing stomach ulcers (caused by H. Pylori) with the Manuka Honey, I found it also cleared infections in my lungs causing Sleep Apnea and my Hay Fever faded away the next spring.
I just wanted to get you to search manuka honey and how it beats heliobacter pylori every time!! Please do that. I am certain it will help. Good luck.
I am writing this hoping to help others. I'm replying to all forums I can find abou HP. Anyone suffering with it needs to do some research on Manuka honey. My husband suffered over 10 years and was convinced he had a tumor or cancer. After finally confronting the unknown, he tested for H. Pylori. Refusing to take antibiotics, we researched natural products and gave Manuka a try (Whole Foods carries it). He took a heaping tablespoon daily. He felt better in 3-4 weeks. 6 months into his honey treatment he visited the GI doc, that said he was symptom free. FYI, after contracting HP, the antibody stays in the system and you will continue to test on future blood exams. It's been 2 years post honey (he hasn't taken it in 1 years) and he remains symptom free.
I first tried Pine Nut Oil. It gave me some relief, but not satisfied I decided to try manuka honey since doctors were not paying attention to the problem and was told to take meds for the rest of my life. I bought the Manuka Honey ___ ___ and after a few days my pains went away and I was able to eat again. Since then I have been good. I took the honey for 1 month, and I only take it once in a while now. A good diet is also recommended since certain foods will also make the condition worse. Every body is different so this migth not work on all, but i'm glad I tried the honey. Other brands did not do what Manuka did for me.
To totally eradicate H. Pyroli and kill it off within a month - take a dessert spooonful of Manuka Honey UMF 10+ or higher (it goes up to 20+) before meals 3 times and and a spoonful before you go to bed at night. This honey (made from Bees in NZ who feed on the tea tree bushes) has antibacterial, antibiotic, antifungal, antiinflamatory properties and can cure most stomach problems such as Barrets oesephogus, gastritus and stomach ulcers. It can also be used on bed sores and mrsa wounds. Look it up on the internet to see how it has worked for lots other people. Hospitals in UK and Australia are using it to cure MRSA wounds and ulcers on legs, etc. Good Luck!
