Bronchitis Remedies To Clear Your Tubes 

Bronchitis remedies are a mix of herbs that relieve coughs, restore your bronchial tubes and get rid of the mucus that clogs them.

The remedies that are used to in the treatment of bronchitis are many and are effective, especially in providing relief from symptoms.

So, before we get into the remedies, lets look to understand what bronchitis is.

What is Bronchitis?

Bronchitis is an infection which targets your bronchial tubes.

Typically, the infection occurs when suffering from a cough, particularly the dry and shallow cough.

Persistence of the cough will lead to the development of phlegm which causes the cough to be painful. What’s more, your chest begins tightening straining your breathing in the process.

As this happens, the phlegm changes to become thick and yellow mucus which clogs the bronchial tubes which is accompanied by a runny nose and fever.

Acute and Chronic Bronchitis

The infection can either be acute or chronic.

Acute Bronchitis

The acute bronchitis condition typically lasts up to 2 weeks and is easily resolved by bronchitis remedies. Acute bronchitis arises from a virus or a combination of a virus and bacteria. These foreign entities come from a variety of sources including pollution and tobacco use and affect the respiratory tubes. The body reacts to this by coughing ( which is healthy as it’s the body’s way of getting rid of the mucus that invades the tubes.) An exposure to cold environments or being tired can then result in chest infection. These foreign elements mentioned above leave the body open to this infection.

Chronic Bronchitis

On the other hand, chronic bronchitis is trickier and should be taken seriously. Not only is the strain on the respiratory system immense from constant coughing but, it weakens the respiratory immunity from preventing other infections.

Chronic bronchitis can last anywhere between a month to a number of years. Later in life as a result of constant coughing, emphysema can result.

It is prudent to seek the services of a professional if you have a very persistent cough as it could lead to more serious health problems.

Causes of Bronchitis

  • Exposure to Dry air and Dust (Even at home or at the workplace)
  • Exposure to tobacco smoke
  • Exposure to a polluted environment
  • A weak respiratory system due to respiratory disorders such as asthma and sinusitis
  • Poor diet with too much meat, too little fiber and over indulgence in processed food
