How to Remove a Fish Bone from your Throat?
It might seem unbelievable but it works. Take a big bite of a banana and hold it in place for a minute. What this will do is it grabs the fish with the help of the saliva and pushes it down the stomach.
Olive is a natural and great lubricant, which can help you get rid of the fishbone. All you have to do is swallow 1-2 spoons of olive oil. It will make the cone slippery, making it easier to swallow it down.
Sometimes, coughing is all you need to do. The bone usually gets stuck at the back of your throat, coughing forcibly should be enough to make it come out of the throat.
Bread and Water
Believe it or not, but many people swear by this method. It kind of works the same way how the banana trick works. Soak a piece of bread in water for a little while and gulp a large bite. The weight that it will put on the fishbone will push it down your throat.
Since vinegar is acidic, it can break down the bone in pieces and make it easier to swallow. Mix two spoons of vinegar in a glass of water and drink 1 spoon of this mixture.
Go to a Doctor
When the fishbone does not come out even after trying so many things, try visiting a doctor to get it checked. Sometimes the bone gets stuck elsewhere, which can lead to a serious complication. Visit a doctor immediately if the pain is unbearable.
