I was curious about ACV for my lungs, as I have been drinking it in water for 4 days because my gut was rocking and rolling more than normal...
The side effect was I was breathing better... That caused me to look it up, and I think I'll binge reading this site!!!
Apple Cider Vinegar
I started using acv 2 tsp w/16oz of water sipping throughout the day. I gradually increased to 2 tblsp in 16 oz of water over a period of two weeks. The results have been interesting. I used to yawn a lot, especially while riding in the car. I had a shallow breathing problem. Now, I don't yawn unless I'm sleepy. I also have increased energy and no more acide reflux. I hadn't seen a post about the breathing before so I thought I would share. Great remedy. Balancing the PH in the body makes such good sense. Thanks for the good work EC!

The part of NV I live in has been plagued by smoke from the CA fires for the last two weeks or so. As a result, the smoke gets into my sinuses and chest, and I'm having a hard time breathing. I've used cayenne for a while now, but never thought to drink it in hot water. So I tried it a few minutes ago; I've been spitting up mucus and blowing my nose, but at least now, I can kind of breathe through my nose. Cayenne isn't helping my chest pain- I've walked in the smoke because I live within walking distance of the majority of stores in my area.
A friend just found out he has 50% diaphragm paralysis post op (struggles for every breath, only 40 years old). Any ideas on how this can be helped?

I have shortness of breath and have tried hydrogen peroxide in a nasal spray and so far have not noticed any difference but has just been a few days, I have read where mucolyxir is doing wonders for shortness of breath and so is salmon-dna. Can a person use both of these products or just one and has anyone have any comments on these 2 remedies, I would appreciate any feedback I could get. thank you.

If you are a smoker and are now worried about inhaling HydrogenPeroxide... Um... Maybe you should have acted that way with cigs, lol. What's the difference now?
All I know is that after first sprays in throat, and inhaling 50/50water puddle drips off hand through nose and spitting out.. My breathing has never been better. I sensed I could smell more as well.
I will try drinking. What about pouring in vicks inhaler and inhaling the evaporated steam?
Another thing I noticed on how I reached this website, I recently started eating a lot of raw honey. By the spoonful, I was experimenting with heavy breathing and coughing out tar and crap. After my first week of eating honey. I woke up one morning, way early then before, and all of a sudden I wanted to go running. I have been a cig and mj smoker for a good 7 years. I hate running, but I got up and ran 2 miles. It was the best feeling ever.
I then read on here that when honey touches the skin it creates hydrogen peroxide. So eating it must be very beneficial ~ since it made me, a smoker, want to run. Yes, I coughed up nastyness and it felt good. It felt good I was motivated to do this.
Living in Seattle, WA.. I believe this technique also battles depression, because I feel great.. And I know for a fact I was depressed, but did not want to take any medication. Honey and Hydrogen Peroxide have been the best to restore health.
I have had severe problems with w/ breathing problems for years. Very deep drops in my peak flows - quite often at 100 or lower. I have now been on a regiman of supplements for about two months now. The results have been encouraging - instead of being on a coaster like the American Eagle it is more like being on a baby coaster. Still ups and down but not nearly as severe. I have been able to decrease my dose of theophylline from 800 mg per day to 600 per day by taking the following combination:
1 packet vitamin c powder - 1000 mg
500 mg niacin (flushing type so it doesn't compound in your system and actually flushes out of your system as too much niacin can have dangerous side effects)
600 mh n- acetyl cystiene
1000 mg lecithin
1 tsp msm powder added to vitamin c powder drinl
1 tbsp ACV in with the vitamin c drink mix
b-12 supplementation to counteract the depletion of b-12 caused by theophylline use
This regiman has increased my ability to exercise and I have having deep REM sleep, which had been a problem in the past with the 800 mg of theophylline and its stimulant effect.
I also use either albuterol in the nebulizer yet, but at night I actually use basil water hydrosol in the nebulizer, or in the daytime rosemary water hydrosol for less severe attacks. (the basil component is a sleep aid also - the rosemary is not depressive, so both must be used with caution. I have had no problems with either, and both have a expectorant effect in breaking up the phlegm that causes much of the breathing problem.)
At this point, skipping the theophylline has not been an option to me, but I thankfully am not having to take any steroids for treatment, either by pill of by inhalation.
DEAR TED, PLEASE HELP, MY BREATHING GOES HEAVY LIKE I AM HYPERVENTILATING AFTER EATING. I SUFFER FROM RECURRING URINARY TRACT INFECTION AND AM ON ANTIBIOTICS FOR A LONG TIME. I HAVE YEAST OR CANDIDA, RIGHT NOW I AM ON PRILOSEC, AFTER EATING I WILL LIKE I HAVE CHILLS AND ALSO SUFFER FROM CONSTIPATION. THANK YOU IF YOU CAN SUGGEST A REMEDY
Second Hand Smoke/Bronchitis: Desperately, I am going to try the ACV to prevent bronchitis/sore throat/phlegm. Just one whiff walking by a smoker on the sidewalk gives me bronchitis 100% . Anyone on this site have this problem/cure

I have shortness of breath when I walk a short distance (but not laying down) and have tried "Jacks Tea" and also Bill Munroes inhalation, this is my 4th day on both of these and I cannot tell any difference, does it take longer than this to notice a difference or is it just not working for me? The only thing I did different was on the Tea I could not find any Mullein plant but did get Mullein leaves from a herbal store, please can someone give me some advice. Thank you very much.
