I just want to thank the posts about people who cured their chronic bronchitis with apple cider vinegar! I used organic acv only kind I use its the best! (: mixed with 1/2 of a squeezed lemon I added entire half of lemon squeezed to my coffee mug along with himalayian acacia raw organic honey 1 to 2 teaspoons depending how you like taste! I love honey and all its benefits especially raw so I did 2 teaspoons! (: with 1 teaspoon of powdered regular dollar store cinnamon or you can use organic if you prefer! or 1 cinnamon stick! I used just dollar store brand cinnamon and last but not least boiling water and omg!

I was coughing up thick dark yellow mucus! phlem! and my lungs hurt so bad coughing! ): I've been suffering with this for 4 months off and on!! ): and as soon as I drank just half a glass mucus came up so easy like crazy! but turned white right before my eyes! infection gone!!! I'm so happy I want to cry! (: instant relief from months of sheer agony on my poor lungs from coughing so much! (: and I owe it all to that one awesome person who was suffering who posted it! (: and now I'm giving my testimony to help others suffering from horrible chronic bronchitis I had! or any respiratory illness! (: I've been taking lots of other stuff granted vitamin c zinc oil of oregano very very potent on infections especially bronchitis! and very good probiotic! (: but my relief was immediate from this miracle concoction!

Thank you acv, I believe is the utmost cure! Research it my friends!

ACV for Bronchitis. YEA.

LINGERING MOSTLY-UNPRODUCTIVE COUGH? I typically get this cough that lasts for 2-4 MONTHS shortly after getting over a seasonal cold/flu. Otherwise reasonably healthy (no asthma, young, non-smoker). I wind up getting prescribed an albuterol and/or prednisone based inhaler to help treat (but not cure) the symptoms. This has happened several years in a row now. Same routine. Coughing all day and night sucks. This year, after a significantly longer bout with this hanger-on cough (4+ months, coughing daily - and nightly), I finally got sick of it and remembered Earthclinc and the nice YAY/NAY format... and happened upon ACV+Lemon+Honey in a tea as a suggestion.

So here's what I did:

- Juice of 1/2 a fresh lemon
- 2 or 3 cap fulls of Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 Cinnamon stick
- 1 low tablespoon (or big teaspoon) of Manuka Honey*
- Filled the rest of the cup with boiling water

*Note: I used Manuka New Zealand honey because that's what I had here. Manuka honey supposedly has it's own "special" benefits over regular honey. Perhaps the Manuka honey played a role here, but I bought it because it was on sale :)

And the results? After MONTHS of coughing nearly all day and well into the night, it took just 3 nights of this concoction and it's done. Over. Quiet. My wife (who attempts to sleep next to me) is very happy. I continued to make the drink for 2 more nights.

I just wanted to give a big thanks to EarthClinic & the users who've posted this "cure".

HI! Re: Hot Garlic Water and soaking feet in this!

My husband and I have been suffering for weeks with coughing and sore throat and my husband believes he has bronchitis as it's really going around here as everyone I talk to knows someone that has the problem. At Walmart the cold and flu aisle is packed. Well I read the post from 2007 about Hot Garlic Water and soaking my feet in it and covering up with a blanket and breathing the vapor in.

Posted by Hillary (Jonesboro, Georga) on 09/27/2007

After years of suffering with horrible bouts of bronchitis, a lady, claiming to be a "witch" told me to soak my feet in hot garlic water, blanket over myself and the bucket, to inhale steam. She told me to do this for at least 6 hrs. I did not have bronchitis for 5 years. It is time to do it again (and I will), but was wondering, has anyone else heard of this "method" and what is is called?

I figured what do I have to lose? I didn't try it for 6 hours as directed but I tried it until the water became cool. After I stopped using this solution my entire body became very warm! I had to take my pajama bottoms off and put on shorts I was so warm!

Then my husband tried the hot garlic water until it became cold. He was really coughing badly and spitting up mucus.

Well we both slept though the night without coughing! I woke up well! No sore throat. My husband has been sleeping sitting up for days due to coughing! He hardly coughed after soaking his feet in this and is currently sleeping (still sitting up)!

I didn't know how to make garlic water so I placed a handful of garlic cloves in hot water and boiled it and then placed this in the blender put it in a pail and added very hot water to it. (next time I'm going to crush the garlic and boil it) see what works best.

Anyway I can't believe this solution worked so well! Thank for posting it! Thanks Earthclinic!

My 87 year old Mother had bronchitis for a year and a half. I tried everything for her. We cut about an inch of raw ginger off and added it to about one cup water and blended it in the Vitamixer. We did this twice per day...morning and night! She is fine now....amazing! She still takes ginger every night before bed and has not been sick since. Just wanted to share!

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar cured chest phlegm and helped me breathe:

Every morning I woke up at 5am struggling to breath as phlegm loosened in my chest overnight and literally did not let me breath. For an hour every morning I drank loads of water (which helped a lot) and tried to cough and release phlegm. Then I read on this site about Apple Cider Vinegar so I started taking 1-2 tablespoons a day in a cup of water. After 2 days I did not wake up gasping for breath, I slept normally! I kept on taking it and was fine, when I stopped taking Apple Cider Vinegar I struggled a bit again in the mornings. I did this for a few weeks.

I have not taken Apple Cider Vinegar now for a good few days and am still fine in the mornings. I just about remember how I use to struggle every morning to breath! I actually can't believe it! I do have some minor phlegm over the day but it is solid and comes up easily, not loose and choking my lungs.

So Apple Cider Vinegar really gave me a lot of relief, and helped me breathe again.

Maybe now I will try it for weight loss!


Baking Soda, Olive Oil Steam

I use ACV and baking soda practicly everyday for all sorts of reasons. But when I have Bronchitis or sinus issues or just feel a cold moving in, I steam with baking soda. In a small pot of boiling water with a teaspoon of olive oil that is steaming real good sprinkle some baking soda, about a 1/4 tsp at a time and sniff and inhale while the baking soda is fizzling. It is so soothing, it will move the mucus out and kill molds virus and bacteria. Do it as much as you want its harmless unless you stick your nose in the hot water.

I have been using and recommending to everyone this protocol for bronchitis cough. Mix juice of 1/2 lemon, 3 capsfull of ACV, 1 TBSP of raw honey, add 4 ounces of hot water and mix up. I would drink or sip on it. When you have night time coughs that keep you up... Mix up a batch and set beside your bedside. That way you wake up and take a sip or drink more.. Then turn over and get sound nights sleep. Worked charms for me!!!

I had chronic bronchitis and the doctor prescribed me and inhaler and 50mg of prednizone for 5 days. I took the prednizone once and woke up the next morning with a terrible headache to the point of bruising the back of my neck from trying to make it go away. finally most of it went away but the terrible cough. I had been going to work on 2 hours of sleep and my throat has been killing me. Last night i stumbled upon this website, Thankk God! I read all the post on the avc remedie and decided i had nothing to lose. I mixed 2 Tbls. of avc with 1 tbls honey in 1 cup of water and heated it up. i quit coughing and was able to sleep the night through by drinking only half the cup. I'm drinking it right now because i woke up coughing but its helping to make it stop again already. Im very happy i found this website. I can finally get some sleep!!

YES, it works. After pneumonia, prednisone, antibiotics & all the inhalers + 5 days in hospital, followed the next 2 years with winter bronchial infections, I got sick again and using a "shot glass" of raw and natural ACV 2 X per day (pretend it's whisky & just do it): knocked out infection fast. The following summer I got serious and consulted with homeopathic sales specialist at Whole Foods. Went on REFRIGERATED probiotics specifically geared to strengthen respiratory. All's WELL since. If I do feel sick again with bronchial issues, I plan to have a "shot" glass am & pm of ACV!!!


Onion and Garlic in Honey

For Colds and Bronchitis:

Take 1 onion (any kind works well, red has a milder taste) cut up with one clove of garlic cut up and cover it in honey and let sit at least 4 hours, but 8 hours is better. I also add lime or lemon juice and cayenne and take two teaspoons every couple of hours until the symptoms subside. It almost eliminates the need for OTC cough medicines and antibiotics.


Oregano Oil

I'm returning to Earth Clinic to share what Oil of Oregano has done for my family in the past 6 months! I also want to give thanks to God :)

I had a cracked tooth start hurting, extremely sensitive to cold. I knew it was infected, and it throbbed almost constantly. I began apply oil of oregano diluted in cold pressed olive oil to the gum two - three times daily. This immediately took down the pain each time I applied it. By the end of the week the pain was completely gone, giving me time to get to a dentist.

My husband caught a cold this winter, and after a week of it came down with bronchitis. He refused to try my Oil of Oregano! Stubborn guy that he can be ;) But after two weeks of coughing he relented one night and I started him off on 2 drops under the tongue three times daily. Within 24 hours he reported "feeling better overall with more energy". Within two weeks his cough was completely gone, then we stopped the regimen.

I began feeling a sore throat coming on. My daughter had one as well. I took one little drop of Oil of Oregano and put it in some water and had her drink it before bedtime. I took mine straight, I like the taste. I held 3 drops under the tongue for a bit, then began swishing it in the mouth and swallowed. After one more time of this, sore throat totally gone.

I have a compromised immune system and I'm extremely grateful and impressed by how well the Oil of Oregano has helped me and my family. It's nice to go to my cabinet instead of the doctor.

I had bronchitis for a week and finally used colloidal silver in a nebulizer and it knocked it out in 20 min. I did another 2 follow up treatments and it was gone. No more coughing or pain in my chest. I praise God for it.

I had acute bronchitis for almost 5 months. I suffered quite a bit. I was given several doses of antibiotics nothing seemed to work. I tried ayurvedic medicines, and I found some relief but the cough was still there. That is when I tried the raw garlic few pods and chewed and ate it, followed by some water. I did it twice that day and the next day I was feeling so much better. I continued for 2 more days and stopped for a day and continued for 3 more days. so in a week my cough was completely gone. I thank earthclinic and all the users for their remedies. Thanks

My story is that i was ill for that past two weeks with bronchitis and i also lost my voice. i went to my Doctor who told me to use my inhaler and rest. As i am a singer i needed my voice back in a hurry. So while i was laid up in bed i found your website. I always get most of my medication from the health shop, but i must admit i had never heard of your ACV. So i bought all my supplies and started making up all the potions i had read about, and sure enough after the first day i really felt so much better. My voice was back in full strenght in a few days, and a few other problems i had got much as well. I am sold for life. i cant stop telling people about it. It has also worked for my family and friends. Thank you for this wonderful site. Anna


Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method

I have been using an ultrasonic humidifier for $30 at Walmart for over a year now and I am amazed at the results of using 3% H2O2 + distilled water together.

I've always had lung problems and get bronchitis 2-4 times a year as well as sinus infections perhaps more. For the last year+ now I have had NO bronchitis and sinus infections are minimal.

I do about a 50/50 mix of water + peroxide most nights when I sleep. It has lightened my hair significantly, but I can't complain about the results. I am amazed at how much healthier I have been.

I believe that this may also help with general energy levels and perhaps helps prevent other illnesses. Frankly I have not been seriously sick one time even with sick kids coming into the house! Everyone's pretty shocked by these results.


Colloidal Silver

I was always suffering from bronchitis, to the point where my GP refused to give me any more antibiotics. I'd heard of nebulising with colloidal silver for a while but was always too chicken to do it. The stance by the GP pushed me into action, as I'd already been suffering for weeks and it wasn't going anywhere. So I poured a very small amount of colloidal silver into the nebulising container and breathed in and out deeply for 5 minutes. I began to get a headache and stopped. But I did feel a bit better otherwise. Three hours later I tried again, but this time didn't get the headache, so kept going for 10 mins. Again, felt a bit better. That evening I nebulised again, this time for 15 mins. I repeated this for 3 days. By the fourth day, the bronchitis was completely gone, never to return. That was 1.5 years ago, but thought I'd share this story seeing no-one else has mentioned the colloidal silver-bronchitis connection.
