Throat problems are issues related to the throat, which is the area in the neck that is used for the transportation of food and air to the esophagus and the trachea respectively. The food that is transported to the esophagus is used by the digestive system, whereas the air transported to the trachea is used by the respiratory system.

The pharynx, larynx, and the epiglottis are important parts of the throat. The common types of throat problems are pharyngitis (commonly known as sore throat), laryngitis (infection of the larynx), tonsillitis (infection of the tonsils) and different types of throat cancers. An ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) specialist has to be consulted for all kinds of throat problems.

Lion pose is one of the best yoga poses for relieving a sore throat. Sit on your knees, with your thighs resting on your shanks. Place your hands on your thighs. Inhale deeply and gradually. Now, open your mouth wide with your tongue sticking out. Exhale through your open mouth by making a sound that resembles a lion’s roar (though not as fiercely or loudly as the lion!). While performing this exercise, try to rotate your eyes.
