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.

  1. Maureen McCarthy says:

    I find it difficult to clear my throat during the morning and cannot sing. Usually by the afternoon it has cleared and I am able to sing. I also frequently get a tickle in my throat which makes me cough. Is there a homeopathic remedy which would help clear my throat in the mornings? I have tried drinking lemon juice and honey in hot water but this does not solve the problem.

  16. Hello, i have suffered with this mucus problem for nearly a year now, i have mucus in my nose that goes down to throat and causes me to have to clear my throat all the time and to blow my nose even when i do both i can still feel it, at night i feel it begins to build up and then in the morning i’ll normally spit out a greeny/ yellow thick phglem ball which normally brings me some comfort but then i continue to spit white saliva pasty phglem throughout the day and i feel my mucus is least prominent after 5- 6 pm, i’ve gone to my gp countless of times and they have told me there is nothing they can give me i feel disgusting and i’m embarrassed to wake up with people because i know i will need to clear my throat first thing when i wake up, please Dr Sharma help me. The amount of phglem can be massive and it usually is a white mucus but then sometimes might have green chunks or even yellow or orange dried parts.

  17. Hello. I do not have: a cough, sore throat, sinitus or digestive problems. However, I have phlegm always in my throat, freely coughed up in the morning. It is not from overuse of my voice, in fact using my voice clears it. But as a singer, it makes me nervous as it interferes with my singing. I warm up extensively and drink water, but it’s unpredictable. Should I use the ARgentum Metallic even though I don’t overuse my voice?

  18. Great info! I am trying the Kali Bich and Kali Carb for Stringy mucus with a hoarse voice. Notice some relief already.

  19. Hi, I’m from Iran and I don’t have access to you. You gave me a lot of help. I have a sinus problem behind my throat and it’s annoying, and it’s yellow. Mrs. Mahmoudi is at home in Iran, but you’re doing well. Now it’s not you. Thank you for your help.
