Yes, I am a true believer of holistic medicine and cloves definately work great for sore throats. When I feel the sore throat coming on, I suck on 2 cloves, biting on them just a little so that the oil form within gets released. I keep it in my mouth for q hour or so, 3 times a day. And the sore throat is gone within 12 hours. I've never had to go to a doctor for this condition even as a child... the cure is there right at home.
Hi all, I came across this website after getting really tired of doctor's medication which have not made me better and have in fact made my stomach sensitive. I was searching for a remedy for sore throat and tried cloves. After sucking/chewing 4-5 cloves in a day, my throat felt MUCH better and the next day it was totally gone!! I was so GRATEFUL dat I didnt need antibiotics 4 it!
I also have a sinus infection and share similar symptoms as many here. Ive been trying ACV for the past few days and have gotten up each morning with yellowish-green phlem coming outof my nose. Its making me feel like ACV is cleansing my sinuses. The great part is my face and head feels very light d whole day after dat!! From now, this website is on my 'favourites' list and is my best friend! thank you.
Whole cloves cure and numb sore throats. I carry cloves everywhere I go. At first sign of a sore throat, I place one or two between my cheek and teeth after crunching them just a little bit. This numbs the throat and kills the germs that cause the problem. If I awaken at night, even one clove can save me from a sore throat coming on, if I place it in my mouth in this manner. I had to tell my family, 'No, it does not stain my teeth. No, I never choke on it, and yes, I do sleep on my back, etc.'
