Laryngitis is an inflammation of your voice box (larynx) from overuse, irritation or infection.
Normally, your vocal cords open and close smoothly, forming sounds through their movement and vibration. But in laryngitis, your vocal cords become inflamed or irritated. This swelling causes distortion of the sounds produced by air passing over them.
- Viral infections similar to those that cause a cold
- Vocal strain, caused by yelling or overusing your voice
- Bacterial infections (such as diphtheria)
Laryngitis signs and symptoms:
- Weak voice or voice loss
- Sore throat
- Dry throat
- Tickling sensation and rawness of your throat
- Dry cough

How to prepare Garlic Syrup?
The best way is to chew a raw garlic clove slowly and then swallow it.
Another method is to chop several garlic cloves, place them into a jar and cover it with equal parts of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar and distilled water. Shake the jar to mix the contents thoroughly and then let it sit for about 4 hours. Now, add some raw honey to it before storing it in the refrigerator.
Use: Take 1 to 3 teaspoons of this garlic syrup every 6 to 8 hours.
Garlic is rich in antimicrobial properties that can make life hell for any bacteria or virus infesting the body. Eating garlic, also, can be extremely beneficial for individuals suffering from laryngitis resulting from bacterial or viral infection.
