Homeopathic Treatment for Phlegm in the Throat

Mucus produced by the lining of the respiratory system and discharged through the mouth is called phlegm. It occurs because of inflammation or disease of the airway. There can be various causes of phlegm in the throat. The most common reasons are cold, allergies, sinusitis, hay fever, postnasal drip, tonsillitis, laryngitis, bronchitis, overuse of voice and cigarette smoking. The color of the phlegm coughed up as sputa vary from white to yellow and green. In some cases, it may also be bloodstained. This problem can be dealt very efficiently with the help of treatment for phlegm in the throat. Homeopathy for a particular case of phlegm in the throat should be selected individually. The nature of phlegm, its cause, and other symptoms need to be dealt with together when deciding on the homeopathic medicine to be used. Homeopathic treatment for phlegm in the throat helps clear out the infection.

Using the accurately selected homeopathy medicine for phlegm in the throat can cure even the most chronic and rigid cases. Among the extremely effective homeopathic treatment for phlegm in the throat are Argentum Nitricum, Kali Bichrome, Kali Carb, Argentum Metallicum, Kali Mur, Silicea, Pulsatilla, Phosphorus, and Psorinum.

Best Homeopathic Treatment for Phlegm in the Throat

1. Argentum Nitricum – For Phlegm With Marked Hawking

Argentum Nitricum is one of the most effective treatment for phlegm in the throat. It gives great results for phlegm in throat accompanied by intense hawking. The mucus in the throat is thick, and there are rawness and roughness in the throat. Splinter-like sensation in the throat may also be present. Other symptoms are a burning feeling and dryness in the throat and the fauces.  Argentum Nitricum is also very effective in cases of phlegm in the throat because of smoking.

2. Kali Bichrome – For Tough and Stringy Phlegm In the Throat

Kali Bichrome leads the list of treatment for phlegm in the throat in cases where the phlegm is tough and stringy. It sticks to the throat and detaches with much difficulty. The throat is also red and inflamed. A cough may arise from sticky phlegm in the throat. Relaxation of the uvula is also a possibility. Kali Bichrome is an excellent treatment for cases of phlegm in the throat caused by sinusitis. In such situations, a post nasal drip of mucus in the throat is the most prominent symptom.

3. Kali Carb – For Phlegm Hard to Swallow or Hawk Up

Kali Carb is another often used medicine for phlegm in the throat. It is an excellent remedy in cases where the phlegm in the throat is hard to swallow or hawk up. The phlegm remains stuck in the throat. Its accumulation is worse in the mornings and is also accompanied by a hard cough. There is also tickling in the throat which leads to a cough. The phlegm in the throat is like a lump and is unpleasant in nature. There can also be a stinging or stitching pain in the throat.

4. Argentum Metallicum – For Phlegm from Overuse of Voice

The complaint of phlegm in the throat of persons from overuse of voice – like singers and public speakers – is successfully cured with Argentum Metallicum. Symptoms include the need to hem and hawk while talking. The phlegm expectorated is gelatinous and sticky, like boiled starch, and is most commonly and freely coughed up in the morning. Another prominent symptom is hoarseness of voice.

5. Kali Mur, Silicea, Pulsatilla, Phosphorus, and Psorinum  – Other Effective Medicines for Phlegm

Kali Mur, Silicea, Pulsatilla, Phosphorus and Psorinum are excellent remedies for phlegm in the throat. Kali Mur is useful in cases where the phlegm coughed up is white or milky white. Silicea and Pulsatilla are homeopathic cures in cases where the phlegm is yellow and greenish in colour respectively. Phosphorus gives excellent results in cases where the sputa are blood stained. Psorinum is a well indicated homeopathic medicine when the phlegm is nasty smelling and has a disgusting taste.

  2. Lisa Farrow says:

    I have stage for neuroendocrine cancer and have been hacking up green globs and white foamy mucus from my throat and chest for over five years now and it never stops. I think it has something to do with acid reflux. It comes into my nasal passage ways and then I have to hack it up or cough it out or blow my nose. Doctors have only made me sicker and have not even addressed any of my many symptoms. Neuro endocrine cancer is very rare and the tumors produce hormones that affect nearly every system. What would you recommend? I’ve given up on trying to find a doctor that wants to help me they have done enough damage

  14. Casey Woodard says:

    Dr.Sharma: Having trouble swallowing food, in 2017 I went to the hospital for swallow tests. Was diagnosed with Zenkers. Was told not severe enough to operate, instead told to take smaller bites, etc. Ever since, pattern of swallowing difficulty continued with added challenge of intense phlegm at night. One night so bad I was prepared to go to ER but decided against due to news media saying hospitals all full. Instead, now 6-months ago, I contacted and got an appointment with a specialist in operating on Zenkers. The specialist told me I do not have Zenkers and suggested additional swallowing tests. Covid-19 dominated hospital cases has, to date, precluded a return visit for swallow test. Having read the excellent information here about homeopathic options for phlegm, I’m excited to get your advice as to which potential remity might be best for me to try. Once again, food is now not the issue. Instead, it is phlegm in my throat, at night, which I cannot dislodge. Just as I am about to fall asleep, I am jolted awake because, in my opinion, my brain is being told I am choking. I just cannot sleep.

  18. Dharamjeet Saini says:

    I am 35 years old and have a chronic phelgm issue, from about 15 years. It originates in the throat/upper pharynx. Sometimes it is whitish and sometimes it is yellowish, no blood though. May be there is some kind of allergy I have. I took allopathy spray (avamys, fluticasone furoate nasal spray) from doctor. It helped me a lot but that was temporary, when I stopped spray it came back. The phelgm is more when I exercise or jog and when I lay down on the bed and generally 30-45 minutes after I have meals. Please suggest some kind of remedy.

    • Eat right for your blood type and refrain from eating starches in the same meal with concentrated proteins and watch your life completely change to optimal health. That being said the kali bichromicum works really good for that issue
