Making a short post, which is nigh impossible for long-winded me.

Coughing happens because the air passage has narrowed. That's it. Use an inhaler to relax the smooth muscle of the respiratory tract and get real albeit temporary relief and try to cough up the mucus if it's possible.

People think of inhalers for asthma, but they can help anyone. It's why breathing treatments (expensive) are given in the ER for sparms of coughing.

EDIT: More
Glycoaminoglycans (GAGs) make up mucus. They're little building blocks that lubricate the airway and trap and remove the foreign particles caught by waves of cilia in the respiratory tract. If you eat less of certain foods, then your mucus production will go down. Other food encourage the production of mucus.

Usually you want to eat lots of foods rich in omega 6 fatty acid, but not while with a respiratory illness. A person with cystic fibrosis in which lots of mucus is formed should avoid them especially. See:

Thanks, good info. I've been sick since Dec 26th with the constant cough and chest congestion. Went to the Doc 2 days ago he prescribed for Bronchitis an inhaler, antibiotics, and a cough syrup w/codine that has let me sleep peacefully through the night.

Worst crap I've ever had, a couple of days I felt I was drowning and I could not get enough air.

Good homemade cough 'medicine' I found on-line but can vouch for b/c I used it couple weeks ago when I had a dry, irritating cough that got worse at night.

2 Tblspoons Honey
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 Tblspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
Couple tablespoons spring water to mix

Take a couple teaspoonfuls every few hours as needed.

I added some squashed garlic in the beginning. Tastes like ass but it works and its cheap!

You're welcome Cassie. You actually could drown so I tell people to use a sit up reading pillow and sleep that way with someone monitoring you when so deathly ill, because in the night you could roll over and choke. Not joking.

Someone with a dry hacking cough could have walking pneumonia (atypical) and that doesn't produce mucus and so you cough like mad. It makes it impossible to sleep.

EDIT:

By the way, a person with cystic fibrosis will often get a special percussive vest and this taps upon their chest to loosen the mucus. You can do that with productive (mucus forming) flu by gently using a hammer fist (just like it sounds and percussing the front and back lung region to help expel the mucus and therefore reduce coughing. Sit them up straight on the edge of the bed, then gently pound on their back and chest. Sounds weird but works. I bet they end up coughing it up after.

Be careful using too much eucalyptus and methol as they actually can exacerbate mucus production. Many cold products have them like Fisherman's Friend lozenges.

Added a link because many of you won't believe...

Well the spray from the planes seems to be getting heavier all the time. So some people might be troubled because of inhaled particulates.....such as aluminum dust. This would lead to a long term chronic dry cough.


Spirulina and Chlorella help to turn a dry cough into a productive cough.......and help the body get rid of pariculates.


If there is fever.....then you probably have a virus or bacteria. Take high doses of D3 to help bolster the immune system.

I've written several long posts on dealing with seasonal flu which can be found in my signature on a seperate topic on prepping. Rather than post this over and over, you can read up on it if you're interested in taking care of yourself or treating loved ones.

If we end up having a severe epidemic (too early tell yet) or even a pandemic, then YOU may be the only healer you have. Why not learn how to best take care of yourself using simple techniques that your ancestors would have used a few generations ago?

Or, you can suffer, spend a lot of money, and maybe become very ill or worse.

You should trust your doc. That's wisdom. You should also learn how the circulatory, respiratory, immune system, etc work so YOU know how things operate. Since in a pandemic you might be the only healer, then having some knowledge on historical ways of boosting your immune system and doing self-treatment would be a good thing.

It's both/and not either/or.

If you learn a little about repairing a car and fix some things yourself, and maintain it, then your car repairs go down, right?

Or are you the kind of person who goes, "I'll leave it to the experts?"

Here in the UK its really bad too, my daughter was rushed into hospital on new years day, she was told she was lucky to be alive as her oxygen levels were about as low as they could be. She has had a cough for nearly a month and it had turned to pneumonia. I have it but not as bad and everyone I speak to has a chesty cough to some degree. I still have it despite large doses of Vit D3.
 Quoting: dzijane


Be careful taking too large a dose of vitamin d. It will deplete your magnesium stores. Taking vitamin c will help you get better. But you don't have to over do that either. Might trying taking 2000 mg divided into two doses. And just keep resting. That will help you the most.

Homeopathic doctors have always used the onion, garlic and onion extracts to help patients with cold or flu symptoms.

However, since the process of obtaining fresh onions or garlic and chopping them has become so difficult, time consuming, and expensive, it is generally not appropriate anymore for the average person.

It is estimated to cost at least 30 to 50 cents to obtain the onion. In addition, the average consumer must spend the 60 to 120 seconds chopping the onion up. This presents an almost insurmountable barrier to receiving the type of relief only our forefathers could know.

In this day and age, such ancient luxuries are not feasible, and therefore not appropriate. It is a much better use of time if the average person will log in to a message board and complain how they "just can't turn the corner" of their cold or flu, and also complain if the local doctors are too busy to see them.

If you have gone at least two months with this type of illness, you are "golden" here. If you state you just "don't know what to do" we will be sure to re-pin this thread. Please share your experience(s)!

Scrow down until the parts of interest:




The old man manifested an accustomed chagrin as he brought the coin back again close to his own eyes.

"2012," he shrilled, and then fell to cackling grotesquely. "That was the year Morgan the Fifth was appointed President of the United States by the Board of Magnates. It must have been one of the last coins minted, for the Scarlet Death came in 2013. Lord! Lord!—think of it! Sixty years ago, and I am the only person alive to-day that lived in those times. Where did you find it, Edwin?"

THE old man wiped the tears away on his grimy knuckles and took up the tale in a tremulous, piping voice that soon strengthened as he got the swing of the narrative.

"It was in the summer of 2013 that the Plague came. I was twenty-seven years old, and well do I remember it. Wireless despatches—"

Hare-Lip spat loudly his disgust, and Granser hastened to make amends.

"We talked through the air in those days, thousands and thousands of miles. And the word came of a strange disease that had broken out in New York. There were seventeen millions of people living then in that noblest city of America. Nobody thought anything about the news. It was only a small thing. There had been only a few deaths. It seemed, though, that they had died very quickly, and that one of the first signs of the disease was the turning red of the face and all the body. Within twenty-four hours came the report of the first case in Chicago.

Yes; central Canada here. Been feeling tickle throat/cough, especially when trying to talk on phone at work. Would always get an extended tickle cough while on phone. Can't even communicate with other person. That was about 3 to 4 months ago/Sept. if I am right. Then Saturday before Xmas, 10pm; BOOM! Nasal, sinuses, ears, throat and chest, all went down for the count. Just that quick! Been sick with yellow/green phlegm, sinuses, ever since. Ears blocked/stiff/sore neck; tired very quickly, but I kept working through it. Had inventory tween Xmas/New Year's, and there was times I felt like I was stoned, literally. Hard to concentrate/dizzy feeling, like you would fall over, or loose balance; also like shaking or body quivering, like a blood sugar thing; and cough/coughing up phlegm, it was unreal. Today, slightly better, but not out of the woods yet! Very hard to stay awake. Just woke from a one hour sleep front of the puter! Been doing the Apple Cider Vinegar, Hot water, Honey/ and at times White Rum! Also, the Vitamin D3, Redoxin Vit C/1000mg; It is just unreal how this bug knocks the hell out of you! I know it came from CHEMTRAILS over our house late Sept/12. Started with nostrils burning! Spouse noticed it too; and she has a cold, and just starting to come down heavy like I have been. Big Pharma needs to SELL stuff, again!!! Bastards! Thank God I never had the upchucks/diahrea/stomach thing as well. This is no fun folks! Stay healthy as long as you can! This is a dirty bug! I also think some is Biological, no other way to explain this! Everyone has had it/or now has it, especially thru the Holidays! Hope you can avoid this dirty bug!!!

Silver only kills bacteria not viruses.
And it only works topically not systemically (i.e. on open skin not inside your body).

Have plenty of fluids, plenty of rest and stay away from others as much as you can.

Sounds like you are getting hit with the bug we had here last flu season.

Starts with a bad cold for a week or so - wicked sore throat, horrid headache, bit snotty. Generally the worst head cold you ever had.

You start feeling better for a week to ten days after the head cold, think it is all over with, then Wham!, you get hit twice as hard, this time with the aches and chills as well. Then it starts with the coughing...

People who didnt get enough rest with the first head cold part, got the second flu like part much worse than those who took it easy with the head cold. People who didnt rest usually ended up in hospital with pneumonia or even whooping cough.

There was generally no avoiding the second part of this virus if you got the first part. Most people ended up needing antibiotics because the chest infections turned very nasty very quick due to their immune systems being compromised from the first attack.

I had it and so did nearly everyone I know. Nasty stuff.

Get well Northern Hemisphere!hf
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2282264


Yep sounds like it. My mate and her hubby both ended up on antibiotics for the second stage after they got pneumonia. Odd part was they both needed two courses of the drugs to clear their worst symptoms and it took weeks to recover completely. My son was ill for about 2 months, he also had to resort to antibiotics but thankfully didn't get pneumonia.
