This paper has proposed by the addressed theme to obtain ginger tincture to subdue acute pharyngeal angina, a diagnosis popularly known as the sore throat.The etiology of acute angina is varied. Viruses and bacteria can cause infections that cause redness and stinging pain in the throat. Other causes include irritants such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, alcohol, and allergens, including: poplar fluff, pollen, house dust etc.Throat pain often occurs during a cold, often with typical symptoms that are more or less pronounced. The infection is caused by viruses that attack the body’s defence system. Mucus produced by the mucous membranes in the nose and throat is the body’s first line of defence. Particles that we inhale, such as dust, pollen, viruses and bacteria are retained by this mucosa. Once a virus gets through this mucosa and enters a cell, it multiplies and thus brings about new viruses that invade surrounding cells. The result of the body’s immune response to viral invasion is actually represented by the symptoms of the cold. Alarm signals are sent to specialized white blood cells by the infected cells. They soon arrive at the site of infection and remove a number of chemicals such as kinins. Thus, the symptoms of colds are caused by these substances by increasing mucus production, by cell membrane rupture and loss of fluid from blood capillaries and lymphatic vessels. The cold symptoms include: pain when swallowing; painful scratching or burning sensation in the throat, hoarseness and pain during speech, dryness in the throat and the pharyngeal area, swelling and inflammation of the mucous membranes. For the experiments we used commercially available ginger rhizomes.
