Treating Acute Bronchitis At Home

By Rickey Henolap

Bronchitis causes you to have an uncontrollable cough with no relief in mind. When you have a constant reoccurring cold virus (thats how it starts) which can cause respiratory infection or sinus infection, possibly a severe sore throat and nasal congestion, your throat becomes red and irritated and you experience sinus pressure. When the lungs become in distress because of phlegm (mucus) build-up, inflammation of the air passageways occurs, your chest feels constricted, your breathing tube swells making it difficult to breathe, causing you to cough. The cough is the bodys natural way of trying to expel a foreign object inside of your body that doesnt belong.

The two different kinds of bronchitis are chronic and acute bronchitis. Acute bronchitis develops usually after a cold or cough that has been in the body for some time and the body has not been able to fight it off or given enough rest to recover. The cough is accompanied by pain, weakness, fever, fatigue and headache. Bronchitis can progress to pneumonia if not treated. Chronic bronchitis lung is usually caused by tobacco, smoke or other irritants. It is a persistent condition that can lead to permanent lung damage. In both conditions it is common for the sufferer to cough up phlegmy discharges.

There are some natural remedies to calm that cough due to bronchitis to help you rest better. Drinking plenty of liquids like hot tea for example with lemon and honey or even warm apple cider helps to relax you. This will loosen the cold up that has your chest feeling congested. So your body will be able to feel temporary relief until a more effective solution is taking to expel the mucus from the lungs.

During the day you can do an herbal steam that will help you to cough up any mucous. Bring a pot of water to a boil, adding herbs that are expectorants. Good expectorants include eucalyptus, thyme, peppermint, and rosemary. Take the pot to a table and put it on a trivet or pot holder. Using a big, heavy towel, lean over the pot and put the towel over your head and the pot, breathe in the steam. This is a very effective bronchitis cure, and will help with a cold too.

The symptoms for acute and chronic bronchitis are similar. People who suffer from either form experience coughing fits. They may also see increased production of phlegm, discomfort in the chest, wheezing, elevated body temperature and occasional chills. The phlegm produced due to this condition may be clear, gray, white, or yellowish-green in color. The color may help a doctor determine what the bronchitis cause for a given patient is.

Bronovil has extract of the African herb pelargonium, which has been used to ease coughing, reduce inflammation, and as an immune booster. This bronchitis cure comes in capsule form and is a great way to treat bronchitis naturally. You can find out more information about bronovil at http://bronovil.com.
