Probiotics are a good option for treating bronchitis. Probiotics are unique formulation of “good” bacteria. These bacteria help prevent infections by working in the digestive tract and supporting your immune system. You can take probiotics in capsule form or find them in many foods, such as yogurt.
Gargle with Warm Saltwater
Gargling with saltwater may provide a double dose of relief by soothing the inflammation in the throat and by cutting through some of the mucus that may be coating and irritating the sensitive throat membranes. It only takes one teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water; too much salt causes burning in the throat, and too little is ineffective. Gargle as often as needed, but be sure to spit the salty water out after gargling.
Bryonia treats chronic bronchitis with possible complication of either bronchopneumonia or pleurisy. The cough is accompanied by a sore throat with difficulty swallowing. The chest feels as if it is going to burst with every movement (breathing). There is a great desire to be left alone and not disturbed.
Eucalyptus oil is another natural treatment for bronchitis that can be used to open up inflamed airways. Though eucalyptus oil isn’t mean to be taken internally, you can put 5-10 drops in a hot bath and breathe in the steam to relieve chest congestion. Alternatively, you can mix eucalyptus oil with olive, neem or coconut oil and rub it on your chest and throat for quick relief. Eucalyptus contains cineole, a powerful antiseptic that makes it a good remedy to have around during cold and flu season.
Garlic is also a viable option for treating bronchitis. Garlic contains a compound known as allicin, which helps reduce inflammation and fight infection. The herb also contains nutrients such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin B as well as copper, iron, calcium, and selenium. Take 4 grams of minced garlic by mouth a day.
