Cold months are here. How to deal with bronchitis?
Bronchitis feels like Im gasping for air cant breathe etc. drinking lots of water and eating chicken noodle soup. also hot showers seem to help. any other ideas? Doc says its viral and can only be cured with time.

Mullein tea with honey. I usually mix the mullein with peppermint to improve the taste. You can find mullein in a health food store.

Get better soon. blwkss

Avoid dairy, sugar & "doughy" products like the plague - they create phlegm and stagnation in the chest. Cover your nose with a scarf to keep cold air out and keep your neck covered as well.

Ginger root. If you have a juice extractor put just a little on the bottom of a coffee cup and make any type of tea you choose. Add honey if you want it sweeter. If you don't have a juice extractor then you can peel and grate it in the water you are making the tea with.

Human rhinoviruses and enteroviruses are suspected to be major viral etiological causes of bronchiolitis.

Glutathione kills enterovirus. Quercetin kills rhinovirus.

Nope, it's actually the opposite.

Smokers rarely get chest colds, niccotine(SP) kills everything.

I know I am rationalizing but it's true.

Humidifier helps lots....dry heated air dries and stops proper mucus removal from the lungs...I inhale atomized CS and use a humidifier at night...

Re: Cold months are here. How to deal with bronchitis?
If you're having trouble breathing, you might need an inhaler. Did you tell your Dr. about the breathing?
You have asthma or COPD?

Bronchitis can sure wear you out. Some suggestions you might want to try....after checking to make sure they won't conflict with any other meds you're taking, are Mucinex D,
Celestial Seasonings Echinacea wellness tea with a spoonful of honey, and/or a menthol patch.

If your cough is bad, a cough syrup with guaifenesin in it might help. Vicks vapo rub put on the bottom of your feet and covered with socks will help the night cough.

Need lots of fluids, water, ginger ale, and tea. Applesauce and chicken noodle soup with lots of fresh garlic, chopped onion, celery, and a sprinkle of hot pepper.

Rest will help and if it doesn't get better, tell your Dr. They don't usually give antibiotics for viral bronchitis, but there are anti virals, and you don't want to end up with pneumonia.

Hope you feel better soon and post if you find something that helps you. Might help someone else.hf

Maybe try some hot spicy chili. Various type of hot pepppers have been used for bronchial issues.

I like catnip tea or tulsi tea with a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon. so soothing at least to me. honey helps too.

There are many types of inhalers. If yours didn't work and you need one, you might have to try several. Steroids work well, but are far riskier. Bet your Dr. could help you find one that works. Make sure you tell him/her that yours didn't work. hf

Go to the ER and see if they will prescribe antibiotics ....a lot of Dr's give antibiotics for bronchitis, and if you can't breathe and your chest hurts, it sounds like pneumonia, even if you don't have a fever ....it happened to me last June, no fever, sent home on steroids and nebulizer tx , ended up in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs, still recovering after all those months !
