Saco-Indonesia.com - Sakit tenggorokan hingga membuat hilangnya suara tentu akan merepotkan, terlebih jika pekerjaan atau aktivitas kita membutuhkan suara yang prima. "Suara hilang" atau laringitis disebabkan oleh inflamasi atau iritasi dari pita suara. Pita suara yang membengkak dan meradang akan memicu gejala suara hilang.

Menurut Medline Plus, situs dari National Library of Medicine dan National Institutes of Health Amerika Serikat, inflamasi dan iritasi pita suara antara lain disebabkan oleh infeksi virus dan bakteri seperti bronkitis, flu, pneumonia, dan bahan kimia.

Pada umumnya orang akan langsung mencari antibiotik untuk mengatasi radang tenggorokan , namun penanganan gangguan ini sebenarnya bisa diredakan dengan beberapa cara sederhana yang lebih alami. Simaklah 4 cara berikut ini.

1. Istirahat
Ketika merasakan suara mulai melemah, maka berhentilah berbicara, jangan berteriak ataupun bernyanyi, bahkan berbisik. Cobalah untuk mengistirahatkan total pita suara Anda. Memaksakan diri untuk menggunakan pita suara malah akan menambah bengkak dan radang.

2. Minum air
Minum air bisa membantu meringankan gejala.  Maka biasakan membawa air kemana saja Anda pergi ketika sedang sakit tenggorokan. Pilihlah minuman hangat bebas kafein ataupun alkohol, karena kedua bahan ini dapat memperburuk kondisi Anda. Hindari pula irisan lemon karena akan memicu refluks asam lambung yang memperparah iritasi.

3. Herbal pelega tenggorokan
Herbal pelega tenggorokan bekerja dengan menjaga kelembaban tenggorokan sehingga meringankan gejala sakit tenggorokan. Herbal pelega tenggorokan saat ini sudah tersedia dalam banyak bentuk, dari mulai permen hingga lembaran. Pilih sesuai kebutuhan Anda.

4. Kumur air garam
Cara ini mungkin paling tidak nyaman, namun dapat membantu untuk meredakan iritasi tenggorokan. Larutkan garam ke air hangat, kemudian gunakan untuk berkumur. Garam membantu membunuh virus penyebab sakit tenggorokan.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
