Healthy Throat
In vertebrate anatomy, the throat is the anterior part of the neck, in front of the vertebral colum
1. Protect Your Throat from the Cold Temperatures
Get in the habit of wearing a scarf around your neck to keep the throat area warm. Do you know that the neck is one of the most overlooked sources of heat loss? Anywhere from 40 to 50 percent of our body heat can be lost from the surface of the head and neck. Changes in extreme temperature such as going from a heated car into the cold outside and vice versa should be avoided when possible.
2. Avoid Sharing Eating Utensils
Do not drink from the same glass, cup or bottle that someone else is using, as you may be at risk of cross contamination. The same is true for sharing eating utensils and even napkins.
3. Clean Your Toothbrush
One source of infection that is over looked by most people is the toothbrush. Left over night, it can be a potential source of problem for the throat and mouth. Every morning, before brushing the teeth, soak your toothbrush in a glass of hot water to which a teaspoonful of common salt has been added. This helps to disinfect the toothbrush and also helps keep it clean.
4. Gargle with salt
Gargle every night with a mixture of warm water and salt. Just a pinch of salt will do. During cold and flu season this is a habit that will help to disinfect the mouth and throat. Your grandmother knew the benefits of making this a habit. And if you catch a sore throat early enough, salt water will give you fast relief. Salt water can also be used to clear a stuffy nose. Just snuff the above mixture into each nostril. Youll instantly begin breathing better through the nose.
5. Use Honey and Ginger To Protect Your Throat
One of the very best ways to protect the throat is with ginger juice and honey. After a good brushing in the morning,squeeze a little fresh ginger juice (3-4 ml) with 5 ml of honey and see for yourself what a good insurance policy this is for protecting your throat all day.I make my own ginger juice by boiling 2 or 3 slices of real ginger ( found in the vegetable section), then cooling it a little.I have also used turmeric. Simply take 1/2 cup of hot water and add a pinch of salt and 5 grms of turmeric powder to it. Drink this every night during cold and flu season to protect your throat. Another tip for rellieving sore throat pain, is to gargle with warm water and cayenne pepper.

    Sit upright with the back of your pelvis touching a wall. If this feels difficult sit on a yoga block or firm cushion (achieving the correct angle on the back helps open the groin). Stretch your legs in front of you and take them as wide apart as you can. Bend your legs until the soles of the feet press together and the knees drop out to the sides. Rest the backs of your hands on your thighs, elbows, and shoulders relaxed, chest lifting. Close your eyes and breathe. To come out, bring your knees together, wrap your arms around them, and squeeze gently.
