What are the Most Common Bronchitis Causes?

by Rickey Henolap

A persistent hacking cough lets a person know that he or she might have bronchitis. The bronchitis cause might be a virus, a bacterium, exposure to cigarette smoke, prolonged exposure to cleaning products, or by stomach acid irritating the bronchial tubes. Acute bronchitis usually lasts for a week or two. If the bronchial tubes become permanently inflamed, a patient may develop chronic bronchitis.

There are some herbal remedies that can be used, to treat your bronchitis. Use eucalyptus, bay or garlic leaves in hot water. Boil some water, drop one or all the leaves I named (to speed up the healing process) in the boiling water, let the leaves get tender and allow water to steam up, pour it in a bowl, position a towel directly over your head and the bowl to inhale the vapors. The vapors you will be inhaling will soothed your persisting cough. You can also use the remainder of the liquid to make an herbal tea.

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.

Due to the widespread dissemination of this type of information in reference to antibiotics, natural alternatives are increasingly sought by growing numbers. Natural supplements have grown in popularity for this reason.

There are many natural solutions to this problem that you can try. The first thing you should do is to try to loosen up the thickened mucous by drinking lots of water to stay hydrated. Next, you may want to turn on a humidifier in your bedroom to keep your airways moist. You can use natural anti-viral products such as oil of oregano or garlic. If you use oregano, one of the best products is Oreganol by North American Herb & Spice. You can eat one clove of crushed garlic three times a day if you wish to try that method. According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, you may be able to assist your immune system in fighting off upper respiratory illnesses by drinking baking soda. He advises that if you drink one fourth of a teaspoon in cool water several times a day it may cure your illness. You can find complete details at www.mercola.com.

Pelargonium sidoides is a plant found in South Africa. The root from this plant has been proven to be a complete bronchitis treatment, alleviating all the symptoms that go along with chronic bronchitis. Bronovil has the purest form of pelargonium extract in it. This bronchitis treatment comes in pill form and will not only ease the coughing and aching of bronchitis, it will also strengthen your immune system and actually help your body to fight the infection.
