Snake Grass Herb Cures Sore Throat

Complementary Healing, Throat

The Chinese herb called ‘Snake grass’  is very effective in curing sore throat.  It works better than antibiotics or sore throat lozenges sold in the market. Here’s how the plant looks like:

Snake grass cures sore throat

The leaf above are bigger than usual because we water the plants with lots of natural fertilizers taken from kitchen waste such as leftover Chinese tea leaf, fruits and vegetable peels, dog poo, etc.

Instructions to use the grass:

1. Pluck a few pieces of the leaf and put on a cup of boiling water:

2. Drink it warm- but wait for it to cool down a bit so that it does not burn your mouth.

Alternatively, the leaf can be plucked, put in a plastic or container and kept in the freezer. When required, just defrost the leaf and put it in a cup of boiling water.

Warning: The snake grass is very very bitter- it tastes like paracetemol mixed in water. But it really works. And the bitterness stays in your mouth long after you drink the water. Just 2 or 3 leafs are enough.  If you find it hard to bear, prepare a sour plum or sweet that you can take immediately after drinking the concunction.

Each time I feel that I am coming down with sore throat- sometimes from eating fried stuff straight from the wok or oven or drinking too much coffee, I would take the drink. I really dislike its horrible bitter taste but I would rather down the bitter stuff that to endure days of sore throat.

    Can you tell me where I can get Snake grass in the US?

      Dear Nancy, I am sorry, I am not sure. You can try checking with shops selling traditional Chinese medicine, probably in Chinatown. Snake grass are now processed as prepacked drinks by some companies. They would likely not be as effective as the real thing though.
