Bronchitis is an acute irritation from the air pathways within the bronchi. This happens when the trachea (windpipe) and the small and big bronchi (airways) within the bronchi become inflamed due to infection or perhaps other causes. The skinny mucous lining of these airways can become irritated and swollen. Cells that make up this lining may leak fluids in response to the inflammation. Coughing is really a reflex that works to clear secretions in the lungs.
If you’re suffering from a poor winter cough, or if you have chronic bronchitis, pay the inhaler or the antibiotics, and check out one of these alternative therapies:
• Malabar Nut:
Another good plant to make use of in combination with, or instead of, holy basil is vasa (Adhatoda vasica), commonly known as the malabar nut tree. Ayurvedic practitioners recommend chewing around the leaves, you might be able to find only liquid extracts from the plant. If that’s the case, take two teaspoonfuls 3 times daily, mixed with a little honey.
• Holy Basil:
This herb is usually used to treat lung inflammation in India. For the treatment of bronchitis, it’s best to get an actual leaf from the plant if you can, and gnaw on it raw. You can also find holy basil teas for the most part natural food stores, although those might be less effective.
This anti-inflammatory spice, the advantages of which seem to know no end, is yet another Ayurvedic remedy. Add one teaspoon to some full glass of milk, and take that concoction 2 to 3 times a day, with the first being at the start of the morning. It works best before eating anything.
