Bronchitis can be defined as an inflammatory condition of the main air-passages (called bronchi) to the lungs. It causes a cough, difficulties in breathing (dyspnea) and chest tightness. Coughing sometimes comes up with yellow or greenish mucus.

There are two main types of bronchitis:

Acute and Chronic. Acute bronchitis: it is often caused by the same viruses that produce colds. It generally starts as a sore throat, runny nose or sinus infection and later spreads to the airways. It can cause a dry cough, but it often goes off on its own.

Chronic bronchitis is a type of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Here, inflamed bronchi produce too much of mucus. This will lead to cough and difficulty to get air in and out of the lungs. Cigarette smoking is the commonest cause. Breathing in the atmosphere that contains other fumes and dusts for longer period may also result in chronic bronchitis. Causes of Bronchitis

  • Infections
  • Complication of cold or cough
  • As a symptom
  • Allergy
  • Change in atmosphere
  • Smoking
  • Pollution, fog, dusty air

Onions serve great value as home remedy for bronchitis. One should consume one teaspoon of raw onion juice in the morning.

Take 50 gm of fresh spinach leaves and ¼ liter of water and add a bit of ammonium chloride and one teaspoon of honey to it. Consuming this mixture will work as a wonder in curing bronchitis. This is one of the best diet for bronchitis.

Another great home remedy for bronchitis is using warm castor oil planet leaves. Put them on a pan, heat them and make them cool. Spread on the chest for the night (caution is - castor oil planet is poisonous so avoid engulfing).

Purchase Glutathione (reduced form), also known as L-Glutathione capsules. Open one and put about a third in the palm of you hand. Inhale the powder. Do this once or twice a day. If you have a nebulizer, use it in that. Make sure you give your body time to process it and cough up any phlem that loosens in your chest. I have gone from severe CPOD to clear lungs in one year. MAKE SURE YOU USE GLUTATHINE (REDUCED FORM). THERE ARE PRECURSERS TO THIS WHICH ARE DANEROUS TO USE AND FORMUALTIONS WHICH HAVE ADDITIVES THAT CAN BE HARMFUL.

I am Alexes Hayden, i purchased chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD/Emphysema) herbal remedy from a herbal health clinic in South Africa (NewLife Herbal clinic), it really helped me. I was diagnosed of COPD in Elisabeth-bruyère Hospital Ottawa Canada in August 2014. In June 2016, I had COPD exacerbation, my condition worsened and the doctors could not help me, the Flovent HFA and antibiotics prescribed stopped working, it was a terrible experience i had, so my wife reached out for an alternative treatment. My wife's co-worker who had initially bought pulmonary fibrosis herbal remedy from New Life herbal clinic referred us to them for help. We contacted them via their website and purchased the COPD herbal remedy, i immediately commenced usage as soon as i received it, it worked miraculously, my airways are repaired.

I am 50 years old and I was told I had COPD 10 years ago. I immediately quit smoking, but as the years pass by my situation gets worse, and I started having attacks once a year, then every six months, and later every 3 to 4 months I was in the hospital. I used to be able to exercise, but it was so hard because i was out of breath. I see people say exercise, but understand this, you can`t exercise if you`re out of breath. I live off steroids and became type 2 diabetic from the steroids, but they`were the only medicine that kept me going. No one knows how you really feel unless they have been through your situation, not even some doctors. When the steroids no longer helps, i was introduced to Health herbal clinic in Johannesburg who have successful herbal treatment to COPD and other lungs diseases. I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the COPD herbal remedy and commenced usage, i used the herbal supplement for only 7 weeks, all symptoms gradually faded away, herbs are truly gift from God. contact this herbal clinic via their email healthherbalclinic @ gmail. com or visit www. healthherbalclinic. weebly. com
