Get rid of bronchitis using these 6 home remedies


Sometimes you develop a nagging cough that feels very weird deep into your chest, it happens every time I catch a cold or get the flu. If you have the same nagging cough, then the doctor will most likely tell you that you have bronchitis (a bronchial tubes inflammation) after some time mucous will start getting produced that you’ll have to cough up.

To make sure that you have bronchitis, make sure to go see a doctor as soon as possible. Bronchitis is a virus that can be fought against using home remedies like these 6 ones that I am going to show you.

1. Sleep 

This may seem strange but sleep offers great help to the body when it’s fighting bacterial or viral infections. Make sure to get between seven to eight hours of sleep, as for kids make sure they get between 10 to 12 hours of sleep.

2. Fluids

Drinking as many fluids as possible also helps the body heal well because they can keep mucus in the liquid state which makes it easier to cough out. The best fluid you can drink is water, but honey and lemon tea work wonder too. Simply mix a tablespoon of lemon and a tablespoon of honey with an inch of grated ginger steeped in boiling water. Steep the ginger root for about 3 minutes and strain the water. Once done, add the honey and lemon juice (you can add nutmeg and cinnamon if you want).

3. Steam

You can keep the mucous liquid to cough it up easily by sleeping with a humidifier or by inhaling steam regularly.
