I got a virus a couple weeks ago and unfortunately had to turn to a 5 day dose of antibiotics to help me when it turned into acute bronchitis. No supplements or home remedies helped me as I tried to battle the bronchitis. I took oregano oil, apple cider vinegar, colloidal silver, vitamin e and a few other supplements.
What's been helping the lingering cough and constant sinus drip is high doses of vitamin c. I am taking 1,000mg 4 times a day, with about 4 hours in between. What amazes me is how much vitamin c my body needs right now. Normally anything over 1,000 mg a day causes diarrhea. Now I'm up to 4,000 a day without any problems. It's rapidly healing the bronchitis cough and constant sinus drip. Amazing.
Next time I start to get a cough, I am going to go the high dose vitamin c route first and hopefully won't have to take antibiotics.
