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?
Apple Cider Vinegar
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.
I woke up choking, gasping for air, stumbled to the bathroom trying to clear the mucus clogging my lungs and sinuses. I knew I had to figure it out quick and do some bathroom chemistry. so I grabbed a cup and poured 1/3 hydrogen peroxide and added 1/3 apple cider vinegar and1/3 hot tap water.
I quickly started gargling the mixture and spit it out, it started cutting the phlegm immediately. I continued gargling, rinsing with another cup of water between.it seems to have a drawing effect pulling from the sinus and the lungs. This is hands down the best mucus busting gargle ever. It's cheap, fast and works. It has never not worked for the people I have recommended it to. I call it Larry's gargle.
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.

Re; Cough and Mucus from Respiratory...
You ask for other natural remedies since the ACV hasn't worked. Any time I experience chronic cough and mucus I know I have a bronchial infection. I use colloidal silver in a "steamer-inhaler" and breath deeply for three or four minutes three times daily. After three days of this I find the infection is stable and usually has stopped. After a few more days of using the steamer with CS, I find the infection is gone. For long running infections I drink two tablespoons on empty stomach three times daily for a few months to make sure any infection left in my body is gone. Oh, and I also give myself an "irrigation" in both sinuses and ear canals which combined gets to the Eustachian tubes. Don't be surprised if when giving the irrigation the sinuses will sting when you squirt the CS deep into the recesses of the sinus cavity. I find that sometimes a sinus or ear infection will be feeding the bronchial infection. For the irrigation I use an ear syringe. Far superior to a Netie Pot.
I agree. Do a search for mucus reducing diets.
When I did this, links come up from Ayurveda sites. Not all of what follows is exactly Ayurvedic, but much is.
1) what foods to avoid
2) what foods were recommended to eat
3) Use Spices! Ginger, Tumeric, are examples. They are anti inflammatory and aid in digestion which is key!
4) I drink 8-16 oz. plain filtered water upon rising, then 10 oz. fresh raw lemon in warm water, then tumeric/ginger tea. You can find that recipe on line.
5) Eat plenty of steamed vegetables throughout the day.
6) very key is letting food digest between meals without snacking. Leave 3-4 hrs btwn breakfast and lunch, and leave 6 hrs btwn lunch and dinner.
7) Wait minimum of 3 hours after eating dinner before lying down! Sit up and read or watch tv, don't recline or put pressure on the belly either.
8) drink water 1 hour, or 30 minutes before a meal, then not again until 1.5 to 2 hrs after eating.
9) Don't eat recooked meats. From what I have read, the oils in the meat go rancid upon the second cooking, and the meats becomes hard to digest and thus inflammatory, causing mucus to form.
10) again, don't snack between meals. Let your meal digest, folks.
All these tips help reduce inflammation and thus mucus. Helps me immensely. Try it for two weeks, you'll be feeling the difference as I did.
Best of health to you all.
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

BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS

I had a mucus issue where I always felt a little congested. I'm a vegetarian and my ND had me cut out sugar, wheat, and dairy all of it. I also started a neti pot flushing my sinus with saline and three drops of iodine. Within a week my sinuses were totally clear no more congestion or mucus issue.
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.
