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

Oil Pulling

I had a cold last fall that turned into bronchitis. The bronchitis was terrible and lasted for several months. I tried everything - natural and medicinal to get relief and it finally did improve, but not completely. Every time I went outside or did anything that made me breath a little harder would turn into my gasping for air and coughing up phlegm. I ended up having to use an inhaler often and that wasn't always a huge help.

A few weeks ago, I ran across an article online stating that a woman healed her asthma by oil pulling. I had tried oil pulling ages ago, so I was a little familiar with it and figured I had nothing to lose by trying it again. WOW. I felt quite a bit better after the first oil pulling. It only took a few DAYS to completely remove any problems I had with breathing. I have not had a single issue since.

I hope this helps someone else as much as it helped me. It feels so nice to be able to breath clearly again! Oil pulling is amazing.

Steaming the Lungs

Question - How much mucus can the human body produce? Apparently, ALOT! In the past, I used a pot of water on the stove and a beach towel to cover my head and make a tent and inhaled the hot steam. I don't do it as often as I should because I don't like it because of the heat rolling over in my eyes. I then tried putting the hot water into another pot and inhaling but the water became cold a did not produce any more steam after a few minutes.

Then I found a little machine called The Vicks Sinus Steam Inhaler sold at Wally-World. This has made a BIG Difference in my sinus and lungs congestion and thick mucus. The hot steam liquifies the thick mucus coating the membranes of the sinus and lungs similar to thick molasses coating the inside of a jar. Add hot steam and the molasses liquifies to run out of the jar.

The instruction state not to put essential oils in it but I do. The top is removable exposing the water fill base so I put 1 drop of thieve's blend in there and inhale for 15 minutes per setting.

Sources of these Steam Vaporizers:

Dr. Trust 3-in-1 Steam Vaporizer in India

Vicks Sinus Steam Inhaler in USA

Note: Do not use just steaming alone to fix the problem. Use multiple remedies at one time to attack your illness.

Acute Bronchitis and Ivermectin

Today is day 10 since I started with a dry hacking cough after almost getting over a common cold. I have had bronchitis in the past and do tend to have lingering chest congestion after colds that can last for months but this time was a doozy. I have never felt that I couldn't breathe, like each breath was thru a straw. The uncontrollable cough was hurting my ribs so bad but for the first the 3 days it was all an unproductive cough.

The only thing I took for the first 3 days was Mucinex and Tylenol or Ibuprofen. I used a humidifier and was already taking Zicam since my cold had started. I couldn't think straight, I was exhausted. I could barely blow my nose because I didn't have enough air. I kept wondering if I should go to the emergency room, call my doctor or something, but what kept me from doing that was that I was worried they would kill me. Seriously.

A friend of mine's brother had gotten a little dizzy in the shower and fell, he hit his head and his wife made him go to the hospital to make sure he didn't have a concussion, he supposedly tested positive for covid so they admitted him, started him on Remdesivir and to make a long story short, he died of kidney failure. Hospitals make $35,000 for every COVID DEATH, they don't get paid to save you.

So anyway by day 4 I wasn't getting any better and I decided to come onto earth clinic and look for remedies other than Mucinex. I tried several so I can't say which ones have worked. I made concoctions with garlic, ginger, ACV and Cheyenne pepper. I stood over boiling water with baking soda and sprayed peroxide down my throat, I gargled with salt water and covered myself in Vick's vapor rub, etc etc.

So all of that probably helped but I also realized that my bronchitis is from a virus, it's inflammation, and it somewhat has similar characteristics of covid. So I started taking ivermectin as well, I used the Zelinsky protocol for active covid. (I can provide that if anyone is interested) You pretty much double everything you usually take for prevention, double zinc, C, etc. The ivermectin was double too. I have taken ivermectin monthly for about 6 months as a preventative and to also see if it would help with my arthritis inflammation but this time I decided to attack this bronchitis with everything I had.

By the first day I started to hear and feel my check loosen, I started having productive coughs, finally! Now it very well could be that the virus was on a scheduled course anyway and it was time to loosen up or the Mucinex started working or the other home remedies, who knows? All I know is that I feel 90% better today, slept thru the night the past few nights, hardly cough at all now and when I do I have a productive cough. I was still feeling tired during the day, but today I don't!

So I'm sorry that I don't know what actually worked but I do know that we need to be active in our own care because Drs only tell you what big Pharma wants them to tell you.

I will continue taking garlic, ginger, AVC, and all of the wonderful remedies I found on Earth Clinic until I have no signs of bronchitis left but I will also keep taking ivermectin for another day or 2 as well.

FYI: Ivermectin cuts down the viral load.

I am a dog breeder who has given my dogs monthly ivermectin for yrs. I take the same one I buy for them since that's all I can get. 1% liquid.

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.

Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method

I used to have bronchitis 2-3 times a year and it would last up to 2 months. I read on this site that you could inhale hydrogen peroxide to cure bronchitis. I bought a bottle of saline nose spray, dumped the contents and filled it with 3% peroxide. Now the moment I feel congestion in my throat, I spray 3 sprays in my mouth and breathe it deeply into my lungs. No more bronchitis for the last 4 years. This is an amazing remedy that works quickly.

High Dose Vitamin D and Magnesium

I am a researcher, thus I can suggest this curement, since currently it had amazing results on bronchitis.

For coronavirus curement, simple cough, severe bronchitis or pneumonia I can suggest you try using these ingredients. This curement was developed by me.

I suggest using this:

a) 30,000IU vitamin D per day (notice here the dosage is 30,000IU and not 3000IU) for three days (in case symptoms persist, take for another two days).

b) 600mg Magnesium Citrate per day

Probably you will see amazing results, since already in two different occasions, it eliminated cough in 2 days and on another occasion it eliminated cough in three days.

Use this curement completely on your own responsibility or inform your doctor as to supervise supplementation.

Had bronchitis and felt like I was on the verge of pneumonia 2 weeks ago.... very, very sick with lots of phlegm in my lungs. Taking OTC meds and nothing was working very well. Was on verge of going to a Dr, but wanted to make a last ditch effort. A friend recommended that I try Oil of Oregano. I bought the capsules. 460mg. took it in the evening and the NEXT MORNING I felt 80% better! Couldn't believe it!! I then took 2 per day for 7 days (1 am and 1 pm) and I am 100% cured. This is truly a miracle supplement! xoxo Chloe

Apple Cider Vinegar

Dear Missy,

You are making some great positive steps in helping your asthma. Apple Cider Vinegar is a great thing to try! Is that THE THING that will solve it for you? I don't know. We were able to heal my son of asthma on the first try (nettles and quercetin.) With my daughter it took a lot more trial and error, but she is doing great now!

So, start with the ACV. And keep reading and studying.

I know you don't like using the nebulizer with albuterol. But you may find nebulizing very diluted hydrogen peroxide (or something else natural) to be very helpful to your healing. We use a nebulizer at our house a lot (with natural stuff in it) and I LOVE it. It is a great way to deliver a natural medicine right to the place it is needed the most.

You might also look into Bill Munroe's Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Therapy on this site. It has helped so many people.

Keep us posted!

Cinnamon, Clove, and Oregano Oils

Essential Oil Inhalation cure for Bronchitis, Sinus Infections, Pneumonia

I regularly get sinus infections due to a deformity in one of my sinuses. Until a few years ago when I found this cure I had regular bronchitis and lastly in 2005 I had serious pneumonia. I opted out of health insurance years ago so I had to take responsibility for my own health.
I got onto one of those $39.95 sites with the magical cure but this one WORKED! So here it is for all of you.

The following essential oils are 89% antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal. Cinnamon, Clove and Oregano. First, get the best quality you can.

These oils work magic together BUT, you can use just one or a combo of two if that is all you can get. Put 2-3 drops of each oil in a steamer or a steaming pan of water. BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET THE OILS ON YOUR SKIN...They burn. Cinnamon and Clove burn. (Cinnamon Oil is the main ingredient of all those lip plumpers :-) Now, inhale the steam with your eyes closed and take it in as deeply as you possibly can, breathing through the nose and the mouth alternately. When I did this with my pneumonia, I felt a kind of crack in my lungs after three or four breaths and everything started to come loose. I coughed up all the guck and was completely well in 5 days. I was so sick that I had bruised my ribs from the coughing and I was very, very weak. Now at the first sign of anything respiratory, I do this. I have never had a reoccurence of bronchitis or pneumonia and very seldom get any sinus trouble anymore. How happy I am that we can all share these wonderful old rememdies with each other! Thanks to this site and all of you.

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

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC)

There is a product that the Australians developed that is a manual breathing device and it's called AIR PHYSIO and it works to bring FLEM to the surface to spit out they are very reasonable like ten dollars or so. check it out

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC)
Posted by Rob (Kentucky) on 10/11/2022

I found this daily dosage chart on for guidance:

* Female fertility 1,200 mg/day

* Male fertility 600 mg/day

* COPD and respiratory support 1200-1800 mg/day

* PCOS 600-1200 mg/day

* Blood sugar support 600 mg/day

* Viral illness 600 mg/day

* Immune function post-menopause 600 mg/day

I react weird to some medicines so I took only 1x600mg at nite to test myself, I have since increased the dosage too 600mg taken am and pm dose. It's working better for me then Mucinex (guaifenesin) which has always cause me headache, dizziness, stomach pain.

> they admitted him, started him on Remdesivir and to make a long story short, he died of kidney failure.

Renee, I'm sorry to hear about the death of your friend's brother.

However, your friend is no alone. There are lawyers who might be able to help your friend.

May I suggest you, or your friend, Google it, or more specifically search for that video on alternative media sites like Bitchute and Ugetube. About 2 weeks ago I came across a video; in it a law firm was being interviewed; they were looking for family members of hospital patients who got killed after some corrupt M.D. gave them Remdesivir, a medication that is known to kill up to 46% of patients in 14 days.

Taking N-acetylcysteine (NAC) 1 pill 500mg should will treat your problem. Google it and learn, some people take 600mg - 1,000mg. It beats ACV.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Cayenne and Ginger
Posted by Miss M (New York ) on 06/25/2020

I forgot to add, if your blender is not strong enough to pulverize the ginger as it is very fibrous, you can strain in with a coffee filter before taking it. I have a Vitamix and blend on the highest so the ginger is not really noticeable.

This really helps, I was coughing for four months straight and got immediate relief which antibiotics two rounds of doxy, a z pack could not do.

Ginger powder should not be used, only fresh ginger! If you read any Chinese herbal remedies for lungs fresh ginger is always included.

I made more of the Garlic and hot water solution this morning and this time I squashed the garlic first and then boiled it and this method was better! The water even is more silky and the vapor of the garlic is stronger! My husband and I are way better! We could not get over it.

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.

Quercetin is a compound found in onions and some other fruits and veggies and it is anti-inflammatory and great for helping clear out mucous that is starting to accumulate in the chest. My son and I are both prone to getting bronchitis out of a cold, and he has issues with mucous gradually traveling down toward his chest during allergy season too because he sniffles a lot and everything drains down his throat and eventually finds its way into his bronchial tubes. Take a quercetin capsule 2 to 3 times a day. They are usually ~ 250 mg and you should notice an improvement in your symptoms the same day you start taking them, but it may take a few days or even a couple weeks of this regimen to eliminate the problem, depending on how bad it was when you started. You can find it at just about any health food store and online. The powder in the capsules is yellow, and quercetin is often packaged as a complex with bromelain, a compound in pineapples, with similar anti-inflammatory properties, and also with vitamin C.

I had pneumonia in the first week of May 2014, took 1 round of antibiotics and the fever and pneumonia was gone, but I had a bad dry cough which started with a tickle in my throat and swelling and tightness uncontrollable coughing lasting about 30 seconds. The tickle/uncontrollable coughing fits were asthma attacks per the doc. Doc said I had bronchial inflammation (bronchitis) and treated me with a nebulizer to inhale 2 rounds of prescription drugs while I was there. Said it would open up my bronchial tubes and bring the phlegm out. Prescribed me $300 (even after insurance) powder inhaler and asthma inhaler and gave me prednisone. The same night I started having a productive cough and it was a pale yellow color. Kind of like the color of french fries. For 2 weeks I had this heavy productive cough and it didnâ€TMt get any better. The asthma attacks got worse as if my body got used to the inhalers. I called the doc and they wanted me to go for more testing. I was tired of paying for prescriptions. I googled and found that colloidal silver worked for many. I didnâ€TMt have a nebulizer but had a Vicks personal steam inhaler. I put 10ppm (had in cabinet) into the inhaler and turned it on and inhaled. It gave me a slight headache so I stopped after about 30 seconds of inhaling. Then the next 3 days I did it when I awoke and before sleeping (no more headache). Then did it only before I slept, instantly, my symptoms improved. Chest heaviness gone. After the second day that tickle/cough went away. I would only feel a slight tickle and cough up phlegm. I would cough it onto a Kleenex to keep track of the color and thickness. Daily I noticed it got thinner and then became mixed some parts thick some parts clear. Since I started colloidal silver 7 days ago, I no longer use the asthma inhalers. Asthma is totally gone. The only symptom I have is a cough here and there and each time it brought up phlegm. Today I spat into a Kleenex and saw that the phlegm was completely clear, no color at all. The colloidal silver got rid of the infection and allowed my lung to clear up the rest of the phlegm. After 4 months of coughing and misery, I am finally recovering. I will continue to use it for another 7 days for good measure. After that, I will start to take it under my tongue for detox of any pathogens I may have that I do not know of ;) Magical stuff!

Regarding the Oil of Oregano drops. YOU MUST use diluted Oil of Oregano drops. NEVER use pure undiluted or it will burn your mouth and cause damage. You can diluted it yourself or buy prediluted.

I speak from expereince I burned my taste buds off of my tongue and it took two weeks for them to grow back. It was miserable not to be able to taste anything when I ate. Never use any undiluted essential oils.

During the last few years bronchitis became a very serious problem. One year I spent coughing for 3 months. After trying numerous remedies I realised that raw garlic is the answer. I cured myself twice with garlic.I simply ate 3 cloves with my food. Now I use garlic as a prevention: As soon as I start coughing I immediately eat one or two cloves a day with my food. However, it has to be raw garlic. Powdered or pickled garlic does not work. Thank you so much for this website. Today I am putting in all the things that have helped me during my life.

I discovered that garlic cures acute bronchitis by accident...

I've been diagnosed with acute bronchitis and been sick for a month and two weeks and nothing seems to be working. It appeared as if I kept on getting relapses...

Growing up, I've always been told by mom that garlic is good for the health and what not. I've also been hearing it from others, tv, etc. But I've always thought it was just for minor things like a sniffle or so...

One day I decided to go "gung-ho" and chop fresh garlic into my salad. Maybe it was my primitival instict kicking in, but I thought that maybe strong dose of fresh garlic may do something. On the same day, I decided to include fresh garlic into everything - including my dinner pizza. The next day I started to feel better. I still wasn't sure if that was just a calming state before another relapse so I didn't jump into conclusion. Second day passed, Third day passed, and now I'm on my fifth day of feeling back to normal.

I then "googled" garlic and cures to read about garlic and its healing properties. That's when I found this site and discussion!

Thank you.
