Diet & Prevention

Eat similarly portioned meals 3 times per day at regularly designated times.  Rest more and stay away from wind/drafts, cold, or AC. Sip or drink lukewarm water every 15 minutes to moisten the throat.

No raw, uncooked veggies and fruits. It is best to avoid eating sweets; greasy or deep fried foods; dairy; pungent or heavily seasoned foods; pickled foods; and burnt meats. No smoking, alcohol, coffee, and cold beverages. No iced beverages including smoothies. 

Allow at least 2 ½ hours between eating the last bite and going to bed. Try to minimize fluid intake after 7pm.  If you get thirsty, just sip water.  Try to be in bed by 10:30 pm and sleep from 11 pm to 7 am.
