I am hoping that Tricia reads this as she was suffering with mucous in her throat. I take Allimax capsules daily for healthy lungs & got some for my friend who suffered badly with postnasal drip & an irritating cough, she had suffered for years & had tried numerous medications & "remedies". @ Allimax capsules daily the first week & then 1 per day thereafter has fixed the lot!
Allimax contains fresh garlic bulb (but does not make you smell! ) & Golden seal. I was looking at this site for info on taking H2O2 as my son is taking it & bought me some.... Any negatives?

Have chronic cough with phlegm, taking prednisone, started using echinecea herbs and essiac with cat claw, went from 50 mg of prednisone to 15, then had gum infection, cough started back, took two tablespoon of ACV and phlegm/cough got worse, back to 50 mg prednisone and still coughing with phlegm, why is that when other posters states ACV reduces phlegm? Any other natural remedies for reducing phlegm?

I need help with excessive mucous.I have it in my nose and my lungs. It has been about 2 months and I am going crazy. ACV helps a little but it comes back. I will try potassium and see if that helps. If anyone else has any suggestions I would appreciate it.

OK, so here is what happened.
I had quite a few struggles with nagging mucus in my chest. I later found out it was due to my cpap machine and the water in it even though I was cleaning it with vinegar like I was told. So then I had to super clean it with soap and water then vinegar after and dry it completely after the hose is not easy to dry I had to push paper towels though with a long stick. problem solved. Not quite 1 1/2 months ago, I started another bout w/ mucus I tried all the over the counter junk and my doctor gave me a prescription. then I came to (EARTHCLINIC.COM) and read about what to do.
I went with acv and fresh ginger root 1 tsp of acv in a half cup water then chopping the ginger root small enough to take as pills 3 or 4 pieces drink it down with the acv mix. 1 hr later major relief I also have breathing problems from an accident (lung damage) so now doing this 3 days into it 0 mucus and my breathing has improved 100% and no drugs
Thank God. I so love this site it has helped me with so many issues I come here before I call my doctor for a lot of things Thank You E C.com.
Was off work because of constant mucous and sneezing fits. Took acv/baking soda and vitamin c (homemade liposomal) every 2 hours, had about 8000 mg D3 over the day as well. Mucous and sneezing started to clear pretty quick. I thought taking vitamin c like this I would get past tolerance level, (sorry, but that's diarrhea) but this didn't happen. So thinking I must still be with deficient and will raise daily dose.
The reason I got sick I think was I usually drink 2 liters of water with dissolved sea salt, borax and magnesium daily and I had not for a few days. Anyway I was back to work the next day the cold or whatever it was, was unable to progress.
I suffer badly from excess mucous, occasional palpitations and also candida in my body which I have been trying to rid for years. I have been taking a drink of 1 level teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon turmeric, and 1/3 teaspoon of cinnamon in half a glass of warm water. I take this after my lunch each day. My query is if this is too much to have mixed together and whether they are counteracting each other, ie due to blood thinning properties will this be harmful to me. I started this about 3 weeks ago and find that I have had a lot more mucous in my throat and also sinus problems. Is this my bodies way of getting rid of these problems? Any information will be helpful.

I am a 58 years young gluten-free female with digestive problems for about 7 years. I have since been diagnosed celiac and following that continued to lose weight. I am far below a healthy weight. I started a candida diet 8 weeks ago with some success. Here is a list of issues:
- Difficulty swallowing
- When food does go down, I often vomit large amounts of thick bubbly clear mucous
- Shortness of breath
- Mouth sores (bleeding) throughout my mouth
- badly receding gums
- Eye discharge in the mornings
These symptoms appeared gradually one at a time, with the shortness of breath being last. I have started inhaling H202 this week for my lungs. Would you know what is causing the mucous when I start a meal and how to remedy? Are the mouth sores connected? Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated. Janice

Is Mucoid Plaque real? Has anyone really seen it when they cleanse believing they had mucoid plaque?
I give Ginger root grated, the real deal, a 5 star because it has almost cured my mucous in throat which I believe is from Silent Reflux. I grate 1/5 tsps of ginger I keep in the freezer and add boiling water, and blackstrap molasses (my choice of sweetner). Both ginger and Blackstrap Molasses have so many benefits for me.
I was having alot of mucus and chewed some ginger. It helped almost instantly to clear it up.
I have a big problem with excess mucous and after checking this site would like to try ginger. All of the suggestions say to use ginger root but I'm wondering if it is okay to use the ginger powder instead as I have limited access to fresh ginger.
I used to have a lot of sticky mucus coming up from my throat when I drink or eat something wrong. Nothing help me so far to relief this problem except drinking real ginger boiled with water.

Have had this problen of excesive throat mucus, sore throat, frothing etc, for over two years. I was put on acid blockers, which made the problem worse. In my opinion the problem is caused by fermentation possibly caused by abnormal gut flora. I am now taking probiotics and betaine hcl with food. I am also drinking dandelion tea for its anti inflammatory properties.
In my experience high levels of histamine are possibly involved, which can cause irritation and inflammation. Abnormal gut flora can cause excessive histamine. If you goggle histamine you can see the disruption it can cause. Some foods block the enzyme that breaks it down and others can cause you to produce more. It is a very interesting subject. I am having some success at last. The foggy feeling is gone, as is the blurred vision. The mucus is clearing and my throat is no longer sore. It is early days. I hope this posting can help others, as the medical people are not interested. Good luck to your all and good health.

I have suffered from reflux and excessive mucus in throat for over 3 years. I started taking Mastic gum 2 days ago. It is working like a dream. No morning mucus and my digestion is so much better. I understand it also kills H pylori. Great stuff. Hope this helps others. Best to all. Christine
The neti pot is THE BEST invention for excess nasal mucus. I absolutely love mine! I have a horrid sore throat (very, very painful) and horrid cough which is heading into my ears and I imagine eventually my nose. I used my neti pot a few minutes ago and even though I didn't feel stuffy, just a slight bit of occassional runniness I rinsed out some real ugly goobers - ha. Grey/beige booggies the size of Dallas - YUCCK! My ears are presently stuffed up so I'm hoping the neti helps, if not then I will pour a bit of peroxide into them for 5 min and then drain. I've also been doing self lymphatic massage. You can find video's on YOUTUBE to learn how. I've been gargling with cayenne which didn't work for me and I used fresh hot stuff at 90 BTU's; 1/4 tsp in a few TBS of warm h20. Been drinking lemon water with honey and cayenne, or vinegar water with honey and cayenne. Made homemade chicken soup with lots of onions and garlic - I used Jin Shin Jyutsu on myself several times, but still got sick and have been so for three days now. I cough up putrid thick, dense grey/beige gunk in the morning for 20 minutes, and in the afternoon. I am losing my voice from the sore throat and coughing so hard. I haven't tried fresh garlic because I'm out, maybe I'll call a friend in a few minutes to see if she can drop some by. Oops I forgot my son dropped off some essential oils, not sure what they are. He said to wipe around my nose and mouth to breath easier- let's hope for good things QUICKLY!! Also I put a nice warm Castor oil pack on my chest last night and my spleen area this morning.
Any other suggestions folks??? I'm going to Castor pack my spleen area again. And I don't eat sugar or wheat either, no cheese. A little cream with coffee or tea. Hugs, K
