Bronchitis Home Remedies
While most people who suffer from bronchitis go to a doctor to get themselves some medication for their problem, there are some who depend on some home grown remedies to get relief from bronchitis pain. Here are some home remedies that they use and that you can use as well:
- Turmeric has been known as a spice that is good for many things and getting rid of bronchitis is one of them.
- Other spices that can help to treat bronchitis are ginger, clove, and pepper. Mix together half a teaspoon of each of the powders of these spices and put this mixture in a cup of warm tea or mix it with a tablespoonful of honey. Take at least twice a day.
- Onion juice is also a good cure for bronchitis since it has expectorant qualities that helps remove phlegm from your body and even prevents the creation of new phlegm. All you need to do is puree a couple of peeled onions and have the juices from these onions taken first thing in the morning by the person who has bronchitis.
