For catarrh, I take 2 tablespoons of organic Apple Cider vinegar, get the unfiltered vinegar, the Mother as they call it, add 1 tsp of tumeric powder and 6-8 ounces of water and drink it fast with a 500mg vitamin C tablet and you are good to go, it tastes not bad and is easy to drink first thing in the morning

Alkalize With Baking Soda

I accidentally cured my Catarrh which I had had from childhood.

I am now 75 and it happened 5 years ago. I had a very bad UTI and nothing fixed it until I read to take Bicarbonate of Soda. I took 1/2 teaspoon 3 times a day for 2 days and that fixed the UTI but 2 weeks later I felt the mucus moving from the back of my throat. Since then I have had no more problems but I think the Bicarbonate of Soda fixed the PH of the body and this is why it has gone the body fixed itself as the PH of my body is not sitting on 7. I don't recommend taking that much Bi Carb at once, but if you can get your pH to 7 the body should fix itself.

Use 1 tablespoon of vinegar in a glass of water, about 80ml and drink it. No need to buy expensive stuff, Asda & Morrisons' both do one in a plastic bottler for under £1!

Apple Cider Vinegar in water works a treat! I was feeling so yuck for about 6-7 months with no relief and only given chemical nasal sprays by my GP, I saw this advice and took it, coupled with a sea water nasal spray. This remedy is great. I am still a bit icky at times so am going to try the Turmeric.

How much apple cider vinegar do you use and do you drink it or use it in the nasal spray?

Vitamin C, pH Balancing

Hi Ted. I have been given this very useful website address and have found it most informative. I do need a little more help though as I am unable to find what I am looking for. I appear to have a problem with catarrh. This is not a cold as such but is basically a very persistent intermittent runny nose. I have to blow or wipe my nose several times a day, especially when eating or sometimes nervous. I very rarely get colds or flu so I am not sure how to treat this. It is very annoying and I would love to fine the right treatment to put an end to this for ever. I look forward to receiving some very useful advise on remedies.

A quick way is sea salt. Half teaspoon sea salt in cup of water. It should work in ten minutes. The cause I found is lack of microcirculation to the nose caused by clogging of blood vessel from chocolate, ice cream, cheese, and fatty liver from excess fruit and alcohol intake. In some case there is atherosclerosis and to stop this I used EDTA and Vitamin C. I have updated the remedy to include vitamin k to prevent calcification of arteries. Brewers yeast or beta glucan may help reduce it too by helping immune system. Thiamine hydrochloride or bentothiamine also helps, about 1200 mg per day. If water soluble form best taken 300 mg at four times a day.

The cause of catarrh I found is long term b6 deficiency most often seen and as a result constipation and indigestion such as bloating sets in. The fungus and bacteria accumulates causing catarrh.

Try this first there is a lot more remedy for this but time is lacking. Ted

Would apple cider vinegar be good for catarrh?

Laverne: A catarrh or persistent runny nose in my experience is a long term vitamin C deficiency, excess acidosis, and rancidity of fats in the body. My own remedy (recently revised) is A SINGLE DOSE (or taken only two days) disodium EDTA 50-100 mg with plenty of water) and BHT 250 mg.

Then vitamin C sodium ascorbate or rose hips is taken over a month, plus some vitamin A taken once a week over a month. A one tablespoon granulated lecithin is taken for only a week. Vitamin B complex taken only once a week for only a month.

The catarrh should go away within a month or two. Actually the fastest I have seen is only or two days, despite years of the condition.

Hi Ted,

Do you have an updated treatment for Chronic Runny Nose/ Catarhh. I suffer from a runny nose all year round and its worse in the winter when its very cold.

Flu Vaccine and Catarrh

Does having the flu jab make the condition worse, or is that I think it does. I inhale Vick vapour to clear my airways down to my chest, but it's not a long term solution.

It might. Have you tried sriracha or horseradish? I have to mix black pepper with the sriracha but it tends to clear up congestion really well. It also seems to improve asthma symptoms. There is a brand that makes a product for the airways that contains eucalyptus leaf oil, myrtle leaf oil, and lemon zest oil. The softgels are enteric coated. I use them even when my lungs are fine because they make me feel warm and fuzzy all over. You might also try guanfenesin. Colloidal silver and lugol's iodine are other possibilities. Slippery elm powder. A decimated gut microbiome might cause the symptoms you describe, too.

Molasses and Gin

Molasses and gin for excessive mucous

I came across a reference to these two ingredients as a cure for catarrh. (from the late 1800's). Ever heard of this?

I am suffring from post nasal drip since 2010. All tests and scans are ok. Shall I try EDTA to get rid of this?
