Home Remedies to Remove a Fish Bone Stuck in Throat

Only try these remedies if you’re unable to use your fingers to carefully take the bone out from the throat.

Olive oil or Virgin oil

Take a tablespoon of olive oil or virgin oil and wash it down with a ½ a glass of water. The oil acts as a lubricant and the water will help dislodge the bone and sent it into the intestines where the stomach juices will digest it or send it out of the colon.

Banana

Eat a banana and wash it down with a ½ a glass of water. The bone will get stuck to the fruit and travel out of the throat and into the stomach where it will be removed from the body through waste or will be dissolved by the enzymes in the stomach.

Toast and peanut butter

Eat a slice of toast which has a thick layer of peanut butter spread on it and wash it down with a ½ a glass of water. The bread and peanut butter will help dislodge the bone from the throat.

Boiled Rice dipped in melted butter

Shape the boiled rice into a ball which is small enough to swallow. Dip it in the some melted butter and swallow and wash it down with ½ a glass of water.

Orange Juice or Lemon Juice

Drink ½ a glass of orange juice or lemon juice since the citric acid contained in the juices help to soften the bone and get it out from the throat.

Seek immediate medical help if you've tried the above remedies but the fish bone is still stuck in the throat.
