I tried 2 teaspoons of Brine and helped ease sore throat pain after about 30 minutes. Didn't have any pickle brine but had some Thai green vegetable brine. I think any brine would work.

While it didn't necessarily CURE my sore throat, it definitely alleviated the pain a lot! Highly recommended. I hadn't eaten straight pickles in over 4 years, I forgot how delicious they were.

I've had the worst sore throat for last five days following a sinus infection and a cold. After the cold had ran it's course I was still left with the lingering cough and irritating sore throat. Not to mention losing my voice on and off all week. I tried cough medicine from Robitussin to tylenol cough and cough (although the tylenol provided temporary pain relief; as soon it wore off the back came back)I also tried zytrec and sudafed (because i was told it might be allergies.) To my dismay nothing worked out. I got desperate and begun searching the web for a home remedy. And alas....(harps play here...) I found this site. When i saw pickle juice I figured this is a win-win situation. I love pickles... and i found it quite delightful to swig the juice. And i can say i'm never been more pleasantly surprised that it actually seems to work!! It was only about a hour ago that i drank it so i don't know if it's effects are going to last; but i've got my fingers crossed. Thank you so much for publishing this cure.

I had a very bad sore throat the other night. I tried drinking hot tea w/honey and gargled salt water. Neither of them worked very well. I ran a search on Yahoo for "Home Remedies for Sore Throat" and came across your website. I tried the Pickle juice and amazingly enough it relieved my sore throat almost instantly. Thank you very much. I will be passing along this home remedy for many years to follow.

I developed a sore throat, but did not think that it was anything to worry about... Then the next day, it got worse, swallowing and talking being very painful at times... I searched for sore throat cures in google, found Earth Clinic, and looked through the remedies listed... I was quite surprised to see Pickle Juice as one of the cures - but then remembered learning of vinegar's bacteria fighting properties... So, I gave the cure a try and lo and behold - my sore throat felt better within the first few sips... I like Earth Clinic

Dill pickle juice cures sore throats. This is remedy that my aunt told me she has used all of her life and it really works!! I now keep a jar of this juice in my refrigerator at all times.

Drinking pickle juice really did work. I have been sick for three days with a sore throat and the pain of swallowing went away almost at the first gulp! THANK YOU!!!

I find a very good cure for a sore throat is drinking the brine from a jar of pickles. It works for me every time.
