Bronchitis is no fun. It is inflammation of the bronchial tubes with chest congestion and cough. Causes include bacteria, virus, or exposure to chemical toxins, smoke.
The body needs to get that inflammation down in this circumstance. Juicing can help give your body the nutrition it needs to heal itself.
Try a mixture of the suggestions below. Juice continuously and even consider a juice fast combined with soups and smoothies until symptoms clear up. If our bodies have less to digest it tends to focus the energy on getting well- this is where juicing comes in handy!
I have found that rubbing a carrier oil (like almond or coconut) and then peppermint, wintergreen or eucalyptus essentail oil directly on the chest clears congestion and helps tremendously.
Animal foods, especially dairy, can be mucus forming and could be a hinderance for your body when healing from this condition. I would try to steer clear of that for a little while.
Fruits and Vegetables:
Apricots, Citrus Fruit, Cranberries, Pears, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Leafy Greens, Onions, Red and Green Peppers, Turnips, Watercress.
Cayenne, Cinnamon, Elderberries, Fenugreek Seeds, Garlic, Ginger, Hyssop, Licorice, Marshmallow, Nettle Leaf, Parsley, Plantain, Thyme.
A good recipe for help...
Juice, whisk together and drink!
While this tastes strong, its antibiotic and antibacterial power is great.
