Coughing incessantly for days together is one of the symptoms of bronchitis.
The cough may be a dry cough or it may be a cough with phlegm which may be yellow or green in colour. Wheezing and difficulty in breathing are other connected signs of bronchitis, which may be acute or chronic depending on the length of time for which the symptoms prevail. In severe cases, there may be feverishness, sore throat, muscle pain and general debility due to constant coughing.
Inflamation of the bronchial tubes on account of bacteria or fungi or viruses or other irritants such as smoke, gives rise to the condition which we know as bronchitis. The bronchial tubes are the ones which branch out from the trachea and bring the air we breathe in, into the lungs. When the inner lining of the bronchial tubes get so inflamed that they become thick, the airways to the lung are blocked, rsulting in the symptoms of bronchitis. Smoking is considered one of the chief reasons why a person could suffer from bronchitis. Having a cold can also end up in bronchitis. Allergens are also responsible for the symptoms of bronchitis.
In the treatment of bronchitis, it is essential that the irritants which give rise to the symptoms be removed. Avoiding food allergens and other edible items which cause mucus such as bread, dairy products, etc.will keep the symptoms away. Also avoid smoking, damp environments and foggy weather.
Vitamin C is a good remedy for both acute and chronic bronchitis since it strengthens the immune system.
A combination of Echinacea and Goldenseal herbs is a great way to reduce mucus and improve the immune system.
Ginger, peppermint and cherry bark are other good remedies for bronchitis.
Garlic, with its anti-microbial properties, can be consumed raw daily or its extract can be taken with advantage in the case of bronchitis. Mixed with honey, it is even more effective.
