Oh man, bronchitis is awful.

I’m off work today, with bronchitis. I have to work tomorrow, I hope the next three days at work do not kick my butt, to where I get really sick. My job is very physically demanding.

I’m on antibiotics and steroids. I am also asthmatic. I take my inhalers and nebulizer.

What else do you guys do for bronchitis?

  • I breathe in steam from a boiling pot of water on the stove.
  • Take Tylenol for body aches.
  • Take mucinex to make the mucous less thick and to be able to cough it up easier.
  • Get plenty of rest. (I’ve been in bed for 3 days), with little improvement.
  • I have a humidifier.
  • I heard that honey can kill some bacteria’s. I should order so good quality honey.

What else can I do? What am I missing? I just need to let it take its course.

I didn’t know you could buy nebulizers on Amazon either lol

  1. I mix a few drops of peppermint, lavender, and eucalyptus essential oils in a small dollop of coconut oil and rub it in my chest and bottoms of my feet. If someone could rub it on your back that would help. Speaking of which, to help clear up those lungs, I lie on my stomach and my husband or kids cup their hands slightly and pound (firmly but not to hurt you lol) and I take a deep inhale then cough so they can hear what section is congested most and they can gently pound there. This sounds very strange as I’m typing this, but I promise I am not crazy lol. I am a registered nurse and I utilize any tools I have to help my kiddos feel better. Lemon tea helps. Also, suck on zinc lozenges as directed on the package. Echinacea and increased vitamin C help too. If you don’t have essential oils at the house then you can find some on Amazon (100% pure without fillers) or use Vick’s vapor rub on your feet with socks 🧦 at bedtime. Elevate head of bed with a few extra pillows. I hope you feel better very soon!!

    1. I have never used the salt either lol in this recipe. If I don’t have fresh lemon, I use the bottled refrigerated kind, a cinnamon stick instead of the powdered kind or whole cloves found in the spice section of your local grocery store. Use whatever is best for you. Hope you feel better soon. 😢

  2. Buy the Vick’s Vapor Rub patches and use them. Eat spicy food and chicken soup, of course, not at the same time. Honey is good for the soreness but it really doesn’t help otherwise. Buy some Hale’s drops for work.

  3. Thanks for sharing!.. I usually drink ginger tea or green tea with a teaspoon of honey two or more times a day to help with the symptoms, at night I use a vaporizer with Vicks VapoPads as needed … 🙂

  4. As someone said Manuka honey, but I don’t like the taste, so I use organic raw honey. Anytime the cough begins to tickle I put some on a spoon. A few other things I’ve learned as an asthmatic who is sensitive to medication. Homemade bone-in chicken soup in the crockpot helps clear your lungs (something the bones leach into the broth while cooking), frozen pineapple is amazing for also stopping the cough and very soothing (I buy bags and keep in freezer), and lastly if you can ingest raw garlic it helps too. Hoping it lifts quickly!

  5. I love tumeric and ginger milk! It’s so easy to make in less than minutes!
    Have you tried putting a mustard Poltis on your feet and then sleep with socks on. It helps to draw out the impurities.

  6. It seems this has been the season for sickness everywhere! I am so thankful for essential oils, and lemon honey tea is always a great go to!! 😊 Hope you get to feeling better so soon!

  7. Get down to the beach, take a good long walk along the shoreline and breath in the pecious salty sea air deeply. The stormier the better. Is my best recipe for all kinds of colds and flus and respiratory probs.

  8. Oh that’s awful. On the mountains the air becomes thin and contains no salt, I get terrible headaches and the worst part is … you cannot sail there. 😮
