Bronchitis Natural Remedies

Bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchi, which are the main air passages to the lungs. There are two types of bronchitis, wet and dry bronchitis. Wet bronchitis with where there are mucus conditions. There are also acute and chronic bronchitis.

Acute bronchitis comes on quickly and last for only a few days and may resolve itself. It may come from a cold or flu or from an allergic reaction. Acute bronchitis symptoms include thick mucus, difficulty breathing, runny nose, sore throat or even a slight fever.

Chronic bronchitis lasts for weeks, months, or longer and symptoms may come and go. There can be severe cough with mucus that is worse during wet weather. Breathing is difficult, worse from colds and may develop other severe respiratory problems. Symptoms of chronic bronchitis are severe coughing with bad smelling discharges, bad breath, and may lead to enlarged fingertips. There may be wheezing, ankle swelling, headaches, and red cheeks. Chronic bronchitis is caused from allergic conditions such as dust, smoke or follows whooping cough, chronic heart of kidney diseases.

Modern medicine uses antibiotics for acute bacterial infections or chronic flair ups. They may prescribe antihistamines for allergies. If there are severe symptoms they may prescribe inhalers. While these methods may be effective they do not treat the cause but only help bronchitis symptoms, and have toxicity and side effects.

Natural perspectives on bronchitis are to remove the irritations of air pollution, stress, and to improve the diet. Also deal with emotional causes.

Diet for bronchitis is important to eliminate dairy or to eliminate allergic or mucus causing foods. Also eliminate tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, sodas, and fast foods and processed foods for optimal health.

Supplements include NAC (n-acetyl-cysteine), one or two capsules twice a day to enhance liver function and reduce mucus; Bromelain and Quercetin, one or two capsules up to three times a day for several weeks will help when there is an allergic component.

Anger Management Natural Remedies

Anger is the state of mind that reflects an emotional sensitivity. It is caused from emotional sensitivity or weakness or damage to the liver. This can happen from foods and poor dietary habits, pollution and most commonly from almost all medications.

Common over the counter pain relievers are the most frequent offenders. Physical symptoms can also involve digestive problems, high blood pressure and can come from stress.

The medical field may treat anger issues with counseling and various medications such as anti-depressants and other drugs that may have a temporary effect but rarely treats the cause.

The natural perspective is that anger is an emotional imbalance that when properly helped by feeding the liver and heart, a person can find joy and balance in life.

For anger issues in woman due to hormonal imbalance, see PMS Natural Remedies.

Dietary concerns are spicy and sour foods feed anger as well as stimulants and dietary imbalances. Eliminate liver stressors such as tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, caffeine, and sodas.

Simply, eat non-stimulating foods such as a vegetarian diet.

Supplements that aid the liver are NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine), glutathione and magnesium would be helpful with the herbs, cell salt and homeopathics. Also carefully consider a good counselor to help guide you through releasing anger.

Melasma Natural Remedies

Melasma is also called cholasma which is a hyper-pigmentation, usually on the face. It is sometimes called the pregnancy mask. Melasma is mostly seen in women. It is a brown discoloration of the skin.

Causes of melasma can come from a genetic tendency. During pregnancy it can appear and go away after giving birth. It may also be caused from estrogen-based birth control. Modern medicine considers melasma a cosmetic problem and treats the condition with toxic chemicals or lasers. It does not address underlying causes.

Natural remedies for melasma include two perspectives; 1) Chinese medicine considers brown spots of the skin as a liver issue, 2) Hormone imbalances are causing melasma because of the weak liver function. The liver and hormones in women need to be addressed and for normal function to return. When the liver functions better the melasma fades away. It usually takes several months for melasma relief as it takes time for removal of liver stressors.

Liver stressors include chemical birth control (talk to your partner about some non-chemical birth control); medications stress the liver to some degree or another (statin drugs for cholesterol are particularly problematic); the diet needs to be free of tobacco, less than 2 alcoholic drinks a week, no soda pop, coffee or black tea.

Natural remedies for melasma include supplements such as NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine) at 2 capsules 2 times a day for good liver function. Use the following natural supplements for melasma for several months.

 

Herbs for Melasma

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Use a combination of 1 capsule of each herb for melasma 3 times a day for several months:

Schizandra herb for melasma is the best liver, lung and general respiratory support.

St. John’s wort is known as a mood lifting herb. It has nerve and liver support as well as anti-viral properties.

Dandelion root for melasma is a gentle liver support and restorative.


Cell Salts to Help with Melasma

To make a cell salt solution, put up to 10 tablets of each cell salt in a 16- to 24-ounce bottle; fill with water and swirl to dissolve tablets. Sip throughout the day.

#3 Calc sulph 6X – digestive and liver support
