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.

A delicious way to take ginger is to finely grate it (with a hand grater), add fresh lemon juice and stevia. Unless you get so much ginger that it overpowers, this is an absolutely delicious drink!

Frankii - I had the same problems as you (I also read your previous post). What helped me with the mucus was drinking Kefir - but not the stuff you buy in the stores. You need to get the grains that you make at home. I am fortune to be able to use raw milk to make mine - however any milk will work - just make sure that its organic. Years ago, I went to a naturopathic doctor who diagnosed me with a BAD case of candida and parasites. I had ALL of the symptoms you did. People would step back from me when I talked - so I know my breath was BAD!!! I took Diflucan and Nystatin to initially knock out the candida. Then I tried a herbal formula for the parasites. I went thru some major detox sysmtoms but my horrible fecal breath went away for good. Using the homemade kefir has been wonderful for my entire digestive system!!! I cannot recommend it highly enough! I use it in smoothies in the AM or just plain (tastes like buttermilk). Good luck with this Frankii - I can relate to what you are going thru. Linde

Hi Phyllis, I have used this remedy many times with great success. I use 1/2 teaspoon of Sea Salt and add to 1 cup (250ml ) of warm water, I make it warm enough to dissolve the crystals and not to hot to drink when crystals are dissolved, I stir up the crystal with a spoon to dissolve if I am in a hurry.

A word of warning, do not drink it straight down all at once as you will vomit, sip slowly over 5 to 10 min, I usually notice within 1 hour it has dried up most of the phlegm and I will take it up too 3 times a day if I have bronchitis, I usually take it between meals as it seems to work better rather than with meals.

Phyllis, a family member got rid of a similar condition by breathing in the vapor of a half a cup of boiling water with a spritz of h2o2 in it. He did it twice a day, expelling lots of stuff until he noticed relief. Then he went down to once a day, and now just once in a while for maintenance.

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.

Frothy sputum can be a sign of heart problems especially with the shortness of breath. Better see a specialist as soon as possible for an accurate diagnosis before you do anything.

Wendy: The herbal combo sounds OK, but you should also rotate to an entirely different herbal combo and then monitor results; pathogen killers like Grapefruit seed, Oregano, Garlic, Neem, and Olive Leaf will surely help. Zinc/Vit-A is critical to the epithelial tissues that secrete mucus. Supplementing NAC helps clear excessive mucus from the body.

You should be drinking 1/2 ounce of water, for every pound you weigh. Example: If you weigh 150 pounds, you should be drinking 75 ounces of water.

Plenty of water with lemon and vinegar upon arising, plus drinking your 1/2 of water per pound body weight, will help a lot. Water thins out the mucus. The cinnamon/turmeric/garlic/cayenne pepper/apple cider vinegar, as described in the above posts, is great. Cut out sugar, and eat it only in natural form. Dairy is mucus forming. It's also full of natural hormones, fit for baby cows only. We do not need dairy.

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.

Hi Christine, I have read the posts about your loss and want to express my condolences. Magnesium and the B-Complex vitamins are very important. St. John's Wort will also help but I have to open the capsules and take the contents with water.

I feel that when you keep listening to your husband's voice, now, it's going to prolong your healing. You have enough to remind you if you are still in the house you shared. We lost everything we owned in a fire and I was only able to save my nine-month old. I know our two-and-a-half year old went to be the Lord and that is what gave me comfort in the midst of so must pain. I could not look at her pictures for a very long time and I could not talk about her without going to pieces. Even now, writing this to you, I'm a little choked up. You never get over the death of someone you love but time will give you strength so at a later time you can start to listen to the tape again, if that is what you choose to do. We have the news briefs about the fire in 1987 but the memories are fresh when I look at the tape. Some things are better left alone. Our loved ones are not here anymore and we have to get on with life with the hopes we will be reunited. Today happens to be my birthday and my mother died three days before my birthday several years ago. Just to let you know you are not alone in your pain.

Hello Brooke from Montgomery, Tx. who wrote: "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."

Google "potassium iodide" and look through references until you find one mentioning Tahoma Clinic. Pull this one up to read Dr. Jonathan Wright's article about SSKI (saturated solution of potassium iodide).

Since it has many different uses (including one that Dr. Wright didn't mention of using 2 drops of SSKI or Lugol's solution daily to aid your stomach in producing hydrochloric acid to digest your food), I suggest that you print this article to keep on hand for ready reference. I found it to be quite useful in liquefying secretions in the lungs and head to aid in getting them out more easily.

Also, please remember to not dilute your Lugol's or SSKI in chlorinated water to avoid the chemical reaction converting your potassium iodide back into iodine!

Hi Ali,

I took the full 1/2 teaspoon in a glass full of tap water, I took it between meals like mid afternoon or after dinner at night for no particular reason, I just took it between meals and I had no side effects from it at all, it also seems to help my post nasal drip which I have had for years and nothing has really helped it so far. Sorry to hear you were sick after taking it, it worked for me, but as we all know somethings work for some and not others, maybe try it again between meals.

To nebulize glutathione, buy Glutathione Plus capsules made by Theranaturals. They are buffered for nebulizing. I mix one capsule in a vial of sodium chloride water and nebulize with it once a day. It helps me with airway clearance also.

I suffer with EXCESSIVE mucus/phlegm and have tried everything under the heavens, including AVC (which helps some); however, I expel huge wads of mucus (sorry to be so graphic, but it's horrible) upon waking every morning without fail and it drains and collects from my right mucus cavity and can continue for HOURS...and that's no exaggeration! Please confirm if the "sea salt" is to be taken with or without water. How much water is recommended and what time of day is best? I'm really desperate for ways to help myself return to a life without CHRONIC mucus.

P.S. I've recently eliminated breads, pastas, tomatoes, breads, dairy and cut back on white sugar.

Thank you in advance for your response!

I slice off a piece about 1/8 inch thick and remove the outer peel. Place on back teeth and chew. I usually leave it im my teeth after chewing it for about five minutes. You can either swallow or spit it out. This also helps with a toothache and upset stomach and nausea.

Hi. I've never seen it in the way they describe it. I suspect these big sausage things they show on internet sites are moulds of the bentonite clay etc hardening in the guts.

However what I have seen - and this was while fasting (no use of bentonite or any thing else - nil by mouth apart from water)... I was doing an enema with salted water and apple cider vinegar... I think it was day 4 of a fast and I was feeling lousy, weak nauseous, toxic, aching back.

And these snakeskin like things exploded out of me. Weird looking. I investigated and they were mucus tubes, not skin - about 5cm long, each of them. So I'm assuming they were thick layers of hardened mucus that lined my intestines.

I am extremely toxic, sorry to say. I am assuming that candida or other pathogens had been hiding inside / behind this layer. I had to rest for a couple of hours after this expulsion... felt very tired.

So... my answer is yes and no to mucoid plaque. Definitely biofilms build up if you've been sick a long time then nasties have got a hold of parts of your body - the intestines being a nice hidie hole for them. And these are the sources for focal infections - repeated infections that get you when you are down. To recover fully, your body has to root out these axes of evil and destroy them. So you will feel sick probably each time while the immune system is trying to nuke them.

But I don't think the lurid pictures you see on the net are necessarily mucoid plaque.... I think that's the sensationalist tabloid version of the story.

I was excited to read about sea salting helping with excess mucus/phlegm as I suffer a lot with this especially first thing in the morning. As I had some sea salt I immediately took half a teaspoon with some soup and water. Within a minute I was rushing to the toilet to be violently sick. I didn't then eat until the evening. I so wanted this to work and assume that you shouldn't take it all at once. Please can you clarify how to take this.

I want to know what I can do as far as ginger. I don't want to go to the hospital because they just want to bill me adn walk in clinic will only give me medication that just won't work. What can I do ?

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

Possibly try bottle dosage of Vitamin A and betaine HCL (stomach digestion aid). Sounds like you have gastroparesis (slowed and delayed stomach emptying), overgrowth of something in your gi tract, and impaired immmunity. could be due to heavy metals in your environment- silver colored mercury filings in your mouth, or living in an old house. But since you mention celiac (auto-immune dz), and receeding gums, I think mercury. So sorry for your troubles! Good luck!

Hi, I found that cutting out dairy milk, using butter insead of margarine and no cheese made a huge difference.

I've also found that using the 2tsb of Apple cider vinegar (with or without the Bicarbonate Soda) give practically immediate relief to sinus problems and my general sense of well being. I drink it with a little hot water or add it to a cold drink for 5 days then take 2 days off and I use it on my salads.

Can't believe I suffered for years and the remedy is so simple. :)

Sallie, the active ingredient "Berberine" found in Goldenseal is known to inhibit B Vitamins, so it has long been suggested to not use it for extended periods; otherwise it's a great natural antibiotic.

Hi, Sallie. Thank you for your tip. I'm not sure that I can get Allimax here but I'll certainly try out the ingredients that are in it. As for H2o2 I didn't find any negatives with it. I only used it in order to clear the backlog of mucous that weaved it's way onto my lung/chest area. I knew that if I didn't do that I would be looking at a different set of problems down the line. The H2o2 opened the airways enough for me to take a strong healthy cough to clear everything, which I had previously been unable to do. Now I will intermttantly use it if I haven't been able to 'spit or blow' my nasal drips. I have only found H2o2 to be a benefit. Thank you again for the tip.

In regard to the mucous problem, I have recently come across some information about how the correct bacteria in the mouth can keep the mouth, throat, sinuses and ears healthy by taking up the space formerly occupied by bad bacteria. Some probiotic supplements containing the common L.Salivarius, also contain BLIS K12 and BLIS M18 that supposedly act like a natural antibiotic by replacing the bad bacteria. Supposedly also helps with bad breath. Makes sense, since many with these problems have excellent oral health routines and yet these problems persist. They come in lozenges and gum. It's a possibility for your problem. Best wishes and take good care.

Never take h202 with tap water. All water must be filtered or distilled. You never know what chemicals are in the tap water that can interact with the h202.

For me:

I mix 4 drops of 35% food grade h202 as in DROPS (not droppers full) in 16 fl oz bottle of filtered water. OR 2 drops of 35% Food grade h202 in 8 fl.oz glass bottle. (pre-mixed) If I feel it is too strong, i just dilute it with more water.

I shake the bottle before i drink it. I also use the (pre-mixed h202 that I made) with my Hydro Grossan sinus/nasal rinse. I usually out 2 tablespoon of my pre-mixed h202 into the water container, and fill the rest with filtered water and salt. I stir the water content and close the lid. I start rinsing my nose with it twice per day.

When I first started out - my nose was totally blocked in one side, constant post nasal drip, could not eat anything without having allergies. I went to doctors and had all kinds of antibiotics and even anti fungal for my candida - nothing worked. I would have phlegm everytime i ate something until I went on strict diet. Even with strict diet, I would still have constant hacking out of plegm after my salads.

One day, I just went on clear broth diet boiling (Chicken bones with filtered water and vegetables(any -but no carrot due to sugar content) and drinking it for every meal. I eat nothing else. This is to help me keep my symptoms down while i do my h202 treatment and let it work. I drank my 2 of my pre-mixed 16 fl. oz of h202 throughout the day (I continue to drink water in between at least 6 cups). I rinsed my nose and throat with the premixed h202 with salt 3 times each nose every 3 hours for the 1st day. The second day, I rinse my nose only twice a day - 3 times each side.I figured that if there is something in my sinus so deep and stubborn, I have to be more aggressive or stubborn than the bug to get rid of it. I was right!

You should have seen the gunk that came out of me. At first it felt uncomfortable, alot of mucus came out through my nose and mouth continuously, i let it come out for 2-3 days whenever it feels like coming out. The 4th day, my post nasal drip lessen considerably and my cough stopped. Amazing! I kept on doing the nose and throat rinse daily (twice a day- once in the morning, once before i sleep) and drinking at least a bottle 8fl oz. of my own pre-mixed h202 daily and now I am back to normal!! I have so much energy to do the things i want to do.

You may have a partial blockage of the small/ large intestine. Also it can be that your stomach/ pancreas/ liver may not work properly.

Less acid in your stomach can lead to malabsorbtion of nutrients -this is the reason for your symptoms. Same can happen if you don't have enough bile or pancreatic enzymes.

Read about Calamus root and also Swedish Bitter.

For the pancreas a juice of papaya and aloe in equal parts will help to reduce inflamation (1/3 cup of each 3 times daily)

For intestinal polyps, Horse tail is a good herb.

Better But With Side Effects

You are having candida die off symptoms. I had almost the exact same thing it was awful for about 5 6 weeks and is now slowing up. It can last I'm told 6 mos or more. I started Diflucan and it is a wonderful anti-fungual that you should try. It will help you kill the candida faster than that diet. You will also feel better quicker. Good Luck!

Neti Pot

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

At you will love this information for overall improved health... A humidifier works miracles or a sauna steam room, drink water in the sauna. Potato chips and lots of water. Garlic tabs up to 6 a day with your chips and water. Vicks on q tip up the nose, spread it around and if needed above top lip to open airway. Get some sun if you can and read an uplifting book. Add extra pillow unders yours when sleeping. Steamy shower, cough stuff up and spit it out, blow nose and stay in as long as you can.

If throat is full of mucus put a couple grains of salt on tongue. Too much orange juice will throw electrolytes out of balance and make histamine worse.

One of the most amazing probiotics is Bacillus Subtilis. This saved many men's lives during the war, it was once used as an antibiotic, and still may be in some areas of the world. I think it is best to take several strains of probiotics, I also buy lactose free kefir it is amazing.

Try a neti pot for your postnasal drip. Google it, it's pretty much rinsing you nasal passages with sea salt water. I use the neti pot with Himalyan salt. It's natural so worth the try! It works!!

Is Mucoid Plaque real? Has anyone really seen it when they cleanse believing they had mucoid plaque?

Hi Christine, Sorry for your loss. My sympathy and condolences to you. When we lose someone, it feels like our life has become empty but that is not true. God loves us that's why he gave us life and he wants us to be happy. Do the things that make you happy --- hobbies, etc. Personally, I have a Teacher/Master who has shown me a way/technique to be in tune with that Peace within. So, even in times of turmoil I can tune within and be in Peace, then the things outside and around us becomes easier to handle. You can check it out at: ---- that means Word of Peace Global. It's free whatever he shows us (sorry I cannot explain it here). I hope you will check that site out. Take care of yourself and don't feel you are alone.

Christine, I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband. This is a very difficult time for you and you should reach out to friends and family. They will lift you up and carry you if need be. Don't worry you will see him again one day. Be kind to yourself and realize that it will take you time to come to terms with this loss. I am here if you ever need to talk. kindwoman711(at) hotmail [dot] com

Hi Deb thank for your kind support. I do not have an email adress at the moment. I need to learn how to do it. I was thinking of try to start a support group for people who have lost a partner. I need to get a bit stronger first. I cry a lot at the moment my computer is geting soggy. Many thanks to the kind folks of Earth Clinic.

The nutritionist told me that if you have inflammation in your gut your entire body is susceptible to infections, and host of other digestion issues so you have excessive mucous for protection. First get the inflammation under control then you can actually absorb 100% of the nutrients when you gut is inflammed you may only be absorbing 35-50% of you nutrients. First, she gave me an allergy test and we removed all the allergic foods and she put us on the GAPS diet and gave me turmeric pills to take and drinking fresh grated ginger tea . But could not drink any herb or caffeine teas or caffeine all of these are diruetic eliminate all sugar, wheat or dairy and soy.

Joyce, I have recently found a hair remedy solution that has Iodine in it. I have been religiously taking it and my hair, skin and nails have been changed to the point that I am extremely excited! I am telling everyone about it! However, it has not helped the mucous situation. It has been a year that I have had this. I have tried Edgar Cayce remedies, which I am a HUGE believer in, and Chiropractic, to name a few! I am also a Body Alignment Technique practitioner and have used that to try and solve my problem with no luck! This has definitely been a problem for me for the past year. Is there any other remedy that you or Ted could suggest? I would try just about anything to rid myself of this condition!

3 out of 5 stars

Worked Temporarily

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.
