Chronic Persistent Cough - All about Acute Bronchitis (Part One)
Acute bronchitis can be caused by an inflammation in the bronchial tubes. These are the passages that allow air to go to the lungs, through the windpipe. The information can appear for two reasons: an irritation, the most common one can be because of smoking, or an infection.

Coughing is the First and Most Obvious Sign that You Have Acute Bronchitis
There are two types of cough that can accompany acute bronchitis: a dry one, or a cough that produces sputum, a substance that is like mucus and is brought from the lungs. Besides couching, if you suffer from acute bronchitis you may also have a sore throat, chest pains, fever, always be tired and you may also have problems breathing. Writing is something that has to be done when one is in the mood to write. So when we got in the mood to write about Acute Bronchitis Dry Cough, nothing could stop us from writing!

  • To diagnose acute bronchitis is a little bit difficult, because of the likeness of the symptoms to other symptoms of different diseases.
  • The first thing that your doctor will ask you is you have had problems with your respiratory system in the past months. like infections.
  • Then he will look for sounds that can indicate him if your airways are blocked.
  • For that the doctor will listen your chest using a stethoscope.
  • Another way to diagnose acute bronchitis is to test the oxygen level in your blood.
  • Ignorance is bliss, is it?
  • Isn't it better to learn more than not to know about something like Acute Bronchitis Dry Cough.
  • So we have produced this article so that you can learn more about it!

When you catch a cold or the flu and your respiratory system becomes ill, this is the starting point for acute bronchitis. The infection then travels into your airways, through your throat. A good thing is that acute bronchitis does not last as long as pneumonia does. Another thing for you to know is that acute bronchitis is usually caused by some viruses, but you can get this disease because of a bacteria as well. It is rather inviting to go on writing on Bronchitis Dry. however as there is a limitation to the number of words to be written, we have confined ourselves to this. However, do enjoy yourself reading it.

You are diagnosed with acute bronchitis, you may seek a treat meant or just let it pass for itself. Most people that have acute bronchitis can get better without treatment, although they might cough for some days after the other symptoms have disappear. In some cases, couching can last up to months, often the person has been cured from caute bronchitis, because the bronchial linings still suffer from irritation. A rolling stone gathers no moss. So if I just go on writing, and you don't understand, then it is of no use of me writing about Bronchitis relief treatment! Whatever written should be understandable by the reader.
  • Is not very easy to prevent acute bronchitis, but there are things to do where preventing is concerned.
  • For people who smoke, quitting is the first thing to do if you want to protect yourself against acute bronchitis.
  • Also getting shots against the flu is another must.

Ginseng is Known as an Adaptogenic Herb
An adaptogen is an herb that regulates and helps the body handle stress and maintain vitality. Adaptogens are used for long term revitalization and not for immediate energy like central nervous system stimulants such as caffeine.

American Ginseng (Also Called Panax Quinquefolius, Xi Yan Shen) is a Yin Tonic
Yin tonics are cooling and slowing in nature. American Ginseng is used in China for fevers and for exhaustion due to chronic wasting diseases. It is also used for coughs related to lung weaknesses (such as tuberculosis, bronchial infections or asthma.) As the information we produce in our writing on Bronchial Infections may be utilized by the reader for informative purposes, it is very important that the information we provide be true. We have indeed maintained this.

Ginseng is Grown in Many Parts of the World
The roots are the part of the plant used for all Ginseng products. Each variety has its own health benefits. Ginseng benefits are cumulative. Taking the herb for several months to a year is far more effective than short-term doses. Ginsengs are used in many Eastern formulas to complement other herbs.

Ginseng in general provides energy to all body systems, is a stimulant for brain and memory centers, helps lower cholesterol and regulates sugar use in the body. Ginseng also promotes regeneration from stress and fatigue. All Ginsengs contain measurable amounts of germanium, a trace mineral also in mushrooms. Isn't it amazing how much information can be transferred through a single page? So much stands to gain, and to lose about Bronchitis through a single page.
  • Use Siberian Ginseng in my 'Old Dog Formula' to increase the circulation to the butt muscles and lower spine.
  • I once had a client who came in regularly for Old Dog Formula for their two very aged shelties.
  • I noticed that they came in a bit more regularly than they should for the dosage I had recommended.
  • When I asked them about it, they confessed that they were also using the product with fabulous results.
  • I like it too and use it occasionally for gardening season.

Wild Ginseng, from Manchuria, is Considered the Best, but is Extremely Expensive
For centuries in the East, top-grade Ginseng roots have been valued more than gold. It is rather inviting to go on writing on Bronchitis. however as there is a limitation to the number of words to be written, we have confined ourselves to this. However, do enjoy yourself reading it.

Ginseng Comes in Two Varieties, Red and White
Red Ginseng is cured by steaming which gives it its color and yang attributes. So, next time you go to the health food store, don't just ask for Ginseng, be specific. Time and tide waits for no man. So once we got an idea for writing on Bronchitis, we decided not to waste time, but to get down to writing about it immediately! Big Grin.

Siberian Ginseng (also called Eleuthero or Eleutherococcus senticosus) comes from China. It is known for its long-term energy effects on the adrenal glands and circulation. In this day and age, most of our American population is overtaxing their adrenal glands with excess stress. There are just too many tasks enticing us to utilize our available time. We are spending less and less time with our families and doing what nourishes us (our Life Purpose or God Path.) Siberian Ginseng is a yang tonic herb, so it stimulates fast, hot, male energy type of function. Siberian Ginseng has been used for rheumatic complaints, low vitality, and weak liver and kidney energy for about 2000 years. It is considered less heating (less yang) than the Panax varieties (therefore safer.) Writing is something that has to be done when one is in the mood to write. So when we got in the mood to write about Bronchial Infections, nothing could stop us from writing!

Panax is Rich in Phyto-Hormones for Both Men and Women's Problems
For men it helps in the formation of testosterone and for women it protects against breast cancer, hence the term adaptogenic (it will adapt to the needs of the body no matter what is needed and no matter what sex.) For this reason, Panax also fits into the aphrodisiac category. Panax Ginseng is used for enhancing the immune system, impotence and premature ejaculation, poor sleep and nervous exhaustion. It is especially useful for older bodies with debilitating conditions. Interesting is what we had aimed to make this article on Bronchitis. It is up to you to decide if we have succeeded in our mission!

Panax Ginseng, (Also known as Asian Ginseng, Korean Ginseng, Chinese Ginseng, Ren Shen, Xi Yang Shen, or Say Yang Sum), grown in Korea is the broadest spectrum of all adaptogenic herbs. It is also considered one of the most prized and expensive herbs. Panax ginseng stimulates both long and short-term energy, so is know as a yang tonic replenishing Qi (energy.) Ignorance is bliss, is it? Isn't it better to learn more than not to know about something like Bronchitis. So we have produced this article so that you can learn more about it!
  • Panax notoginseng (Also known as Pseudoginseng or San Qi) is grown in China and is used as an analgesic and to stop internal and external bleeding.
  • It is also added to treatments for coronary heart disease and angina.
  • Quite interestingly, San Qi was used extensively by the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War to increase recovery rates from gunshot wounds.
  • Avoid this one during pregnancy.
  • It could harm the fetus.
  • A rolling stone gathers no moss.

Juniper berries have long been used as a flavoring in foods and alcoholic beverages such as gin. Gin's original preparation was used for kidney ailments. Immature berries are green, taking 2 to 3 years to ripen to a purplish blue-black. The active component is a volatile oil, which is 0.2% to 3.4% of the berry. The best described effect is diuresis, caused by terpinene-4-01, which results from a direct irritation to the kidney, leading to increased glomerular filtration rate. Juniper berries are available as ripe berry, also called berry-like cones or mature female cones, fresh or dried, and as powder, tea, tincture, oil, or liquid extract. Big Grin.

Caution Against Using Alcohol While Taking Juniper
Recommend that patient seek medical diagnosis before taking juniper. Unadvised use of juniper could worsen urinary problems, bronchitis, GI disorders, and other conditions if medical diagnosis and proper treatment are delayed. Did you ever believe that there was so much to learn about Bronchitis? Neither did we! Once we got to write this article, it seemed to be endless.

Warn patient not to confuse juniper with cade oil, which is derived from juniper wood. Advise female patient to report planned or suspected pregnancy before using juniper. We worked as diligently as an owl in producing this composition on Bronchitis. So only if you do read it, and appreciate its contents will we feel our efforts haven't gone in vain.

Safety Risk Kidney damage may occur in patients taking juniper for extended periods. This effect may stem from prolonged kidney irritation caused by terpinene-4-ol or by tur pentine oil contamination ofjuniper products. Go ahead and read this article on Bronchitis. We would also appreciate it if you could give us an analysis on it for us to make any needed changes to it.

As a food, maximum flavoring concentrations are 0.01% of the extract or 0.006% of the volatile oil. Other reported effects of juniper include hypoglycemia, hypotension or hypertension, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects, and stimulation of uterine activity leading to decreased implantation and increased abortifacient effects.
  • Research summary Juniper may have some benefit in diabetic treatment, but further study is necessary.
  • Juniper has an extensive toxicology profile, and therefore must be used with caution. :o

Juniper berries may be applied topically to treat small wounds and relieve muscle and joint pain caused by rheumatism. The fragrance is inhaled as steam to treat bronchitis. The oil is used as a fragrance in many soaps and cosmetics. Juniper berries are the principle flavoring agent in gin, as well as some bitters and liqueurs. Every cloud has a silver lining; so consider that this article on Bronchitis symptoms the silver lining to the clouds of articles on Bronchitis. It is this article that will add more spice to the meaning of Bronchitis.

Oil (1:5 in 45% Alcohol):
03 to 2 ml by mouth three times a day Tea (steep 1 teaspoon crushed berries in 5 oz boiling water for 10 minutes, and then strain): three times a day There is sure to be a grin on your face once you get to read this article on Bronchitis. This is because you are sure to realize that all this matter is so obvious, you wonder how come you never got to know about it!

There may be additive hypoglycemic effects when juniper is combined with other herbs that lower blood glucose level, such as Asian ginseng, dandelion, fenugreek, and Siberian ginseng. Juniper may have additive effects with other herbs causing diuresis, such as cowslip, cucumber, dandelion, and horsetail. The more readers we get to this writing on Bronchitis, the more encouragement we get to produce similar, interesting articles for you to read. So read on and pass it to your friends.

Reported Uses
Juniper berries are used to treat urinary tract infections and kidney stones. They're also used as a carminative and for multiple nonspecific GI tract disorders, including dyspepsia, flatulence, colic, heartburn, anorexia, and inflammatory GI disorders. Reading is a habit that has to be cultivated from a small age. Only if one has the habit of reading can one acquire more knowledge on things like Bronchitis.
  • Inform patient that urine may turn purplish with higher doses of juniper.
  • Tell patient to avoid applying juniper to large ulcers or wounds because local irritation (burning, blistering, redness, and edema) may occur.

Tincture (1:5 in 45% Alcohol): 1 to 2 Ml by Mouth Three Times a Day
Hazards Adverse reactions to juniper include local irritation and metrorrhagia. When used with antidiabetics such as chlorpropamide, glipizide, and glyburide, hypoglycemic effects may be potentiated. Concomitant use of juniper and anti-hypertensives may interfere with blood pressure. Juniper may potentiate the effects of diuretics such as furosemide, leading to additive hypokalemia. A disulfiram-like reaction could occur because of alcohol content of juniper extract.
Chronic Coughing: Possible causes and treatment




Tell patient to notify pharmacist of any herbal and dietary supplements that he's taking when obtaining a new prescription. Advise patient to consult his health care provider before using an herbal preparation because a conventional treatment with proven efficacy may be available.

Variety is the spice of life. So we have added as much variety as possible to this matter on Bronchitis to make it's reading relevant, and interesting!

Women who are pregnant or breast-feeding should avoid juniper because of its uterine stimulant and abortifacient properties. Juniper shouldn't be used by those with renal insufficiency, inflammatory disorders of the GI tract (such as Crohn's disease), seizure disorders, or known hypersensitivity. It shouldn't be used topically on large ulcers or wounds because it may cause local irritation.
Bronchitis No Longer Contagious - Chronic Bronchitis and Emphysema
What are these Conditions? Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are characterized by chronically blocked breathing passages. Collectively, asthma, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis or any combination are called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Usually, more than one of these underlying conditions coexist; most often, bronchitis and emphysema occur together. Wink

If you're taking antibiotics to treat a respiratory infection, be sure to complete the entire prescribed course of therapy. - Practice good oral hygiene to help prevent infection, and learn how to recognize early symptoms of infection. Avoid people with respiratory infections. Get Pneumovax (pneumococcal vaccine) and annual flu shots. There is a vast ocean of knowledge connected with Chronic Bronchitis. What is included here can be considered a fraction of this knowledge!

What are the Symptoms?
The typical person with chronic bronchitis or emphysema is a longterm cigarette smoker who has no symptoms until middle age, when his or her ability to exercise or do strenuous work starts to decline and a productive cough begins. Subtle at first, these problems worsen with age and as the disease progresses. Eventually, they cause difficulty breathing on minimal exertion, frequent respiratory infections, oxygen deficiency in the blood, and abnormalities in pulmonary function. When advanced, chronic bronchitis and emphysema may cause chest deformities, overwhelming disability, heart enlargement, severe respiratory failure, and death.

The most common chronic lung diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases affect an estimated 17 million Americans, and their incidence is rising. They are more common in men than women, probably because, until recently, men were more likely to smoke heavily. Chronic bronchitis and emphysema don't always produce symptoms and cause only slight disability in many people. However, these diseases tend to worsen over time. Bronchitis are versatile as they are found in all parts and walks of life. It all depends on the way you take it.

Eat a Balanced Diet
Because you may tire easily when eating, eat frequent, small meals and consider using oxygen, delivered by a nasal cannula, during meals. There are many varieties of Chronic Bronchitis Emphysema found today. However, we have stuck to the description of only one variety to prevent confusion!

How are They Treated?
Treatment aims to relieve symptoms and prevent complications. Because most people with chronic bronchitis or emphysema receive outpatient treatment, they get comprehensive teaching to help them comply with therapy and understand the nature of these progressive diseases. If programs in pulmonary rehabilitation are available, they should consider enrolling. Bronchitis play a prominent part in this composition. It is with this prominence that we hope people get to know more about Bronchitis.

How are They Diagnosed?
A history of cigarette smoking plus the results of blood and pulmonary function studies help confirm these diseases. Writing on Bronchitis proved to be a gamble to us. This is because there simply seemed to be nothing to write about in the beginning of writing. It was only in the process of writing did we get more and more to write on Bronchitis.

What Causes Them?
Predisposing factors include cigarette smoking, recurrent or chronic respiratory infections, air pollution, and allergies. Smoking is by far the most important of these factors. Smoking increases mucus production but impairs its removal from the airways, impedes the function of airway cells that digest disease-causing organisms, causes airway inflammation, destroys air sacs in the lungs, and leads to abnormal fibrous tissue growth in the bronchial tree. Early inflammatory changes may reverse themselves if the person stops smoking before lung destruction is extensive. Family and hereditary factors may also predispose a person to chronic bronchitis or emphysema.

To help remove secretions, learn how to cough effectively. If you have abundant, tenacious secretions, have a family member perform postural drainage (repositioning to drain fluids) and chest physical therapy. (Ask your doctor for instructions on these techniques.) If your secretions are thick, drink at least 6 eight ounce glasses of fluid a day. A humidifier may aid secretion removal, especially in the winter. Developing a vision on Chronic Bronchitis Emphysema, we saw the need of providing some enlightenment in Chronic Bronchitis Emphysema for others to learn more about Chronic Bronchitis Emphysema.

To strengthen your breathing muscles, take slow, deep breaths and exhale through pursed lips. - If you're receiving home oxygen therapy, make sure you or a family member knows how to use the equipment correctly. Don't increase the oxygen flow or concentration above what the doctor prescribes because too much oxygen may eliminate your respiratory drive and cause confusion and drowsiness. You probably won't need more than 2 to 3 liters per minute .

Sometimes, for a person with chronic bronchitis, the symptoms will quickly get worse all of a sudden. This is known as an acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis, or AECB. Many people that die from chronic bronchitis does so during an episode of acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis, so a person having an attack of AECB must get medical attention right away to maximize his/her chances of survival.

Air pollutants that irritate the lungs (e.g. smoke, fumes, dust) -Weather changes To avoid AECB, a chronic bronchitic is advised to stay away from places with heavy air pollution, to get flu and pneumonia shots, and to maintain a healthy diet to strengthen the immune system against infections. We found it rather unbelievable to find out that there is so much to learn on Chronic Bronchitis Symptoms! Wonder if you could believe it after going through it!

What Triggers AECB?
Acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis are commonly triggered by one or more of the following: -Bacterial or viral infections (e.g. cold, flu) Nothing abusive about Bronchitis have been intentionally added here. Whatever it is that we have added, is all informative and productive to you.

You are experiencing AECB, you should seek medical treatment immediately. AECB has been known to cause other problems, and many are admitted to the hospital every year for complications from AECB. If you are experiencing this, remember not to panic. Keep your breathing as steady as possible, and calmly call a doctor of physician for advice. Because AECB can come suddenly without warning, it is always best to keep any doctor prescribed inhalants on you just in case. Make sure to check with your doctor, and make sure that these inhalers are fine to take when you are experiencing AECB, to avoid any further complications. Try lying down with a humidifier running, or hopping in a warm shower to help you breath and reduce the symptoms of AECB. After many hopeless endeavors to produce something worthwhile on Bronchitis Symptoms, this is what we have come up with. We are very hopeful about this!

What Happens During AECB?
During an AECB, the already narrower-than-normal air passageways in the lungs become even narrower, and even more and thicker mucous is secreted. This will cause breathing to become even more difficult. This may be accompanied by a fever, chills, and feeling weak in the knees. If the sudden acute exacerbation is due to bacterial infection, the mucus coughed up during expectoration may be speckled with blood, or colored a brighter than normal yellow or green. If the individual is suffering from fever, and has discovered blood in their mucus, there is a good chance the doctor will take a chest x-ray to make sure that pneumonia is not the underlying cause of the symptoms.
  • Homeopathic remedies are claimed by many to be better than medical science if only through their claim of being Natural.
  • Take for example homeopathy.

Quote:Obtaining the benefits of medical science makes you a wise and caring parent. This isn't to say that homeopathy is completely worthless. Many symptoms such as sinusitis and a bronchial cough can be treated without expensive pharmaceutical medications. Still, if you're a parent, wouldn't it be great to have some effective cough medicine to relieve your child's hacking cough in the middle of the night if the homeopathic remedy doesn't work? Accept the way things are in life. Only then will you be able to accept these points on Acute Bronchitis. Acute bronchitis treatment considered to be part and parcel of life.

You're interest in and natural cures is based on obtaining the best care for you or your child, it's important to realize that in cases involving bronchial infection, a medical doctor IS the best care. Share with your doctor your desire to limit the use of prescribed medications and he will work with you and suggest alternatives that you can try for the relief of some symptoms.
  • Simple definition of bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchial tubes that send air into the lungs.
  • There are two types of bronchitis, acute and chronic.
  • Acute bronchitis is usually associated with a respiratory infection which itself can be either viral or bacterial.

The problem with the claims of many so called natural remedies is their effectiveness has never been verified by any scientific research. Consider homeopathy is based on an 18th century theory that apparently was NOT effective as the hospital wards were filled with patients that WERE cured with a little invention of modern medicine called antibiotics. Ignorance is bliss they say. However, do you find this practical when you read so much about Bronchitis Asthma?

Trying to treat bronchitis with natural cures or remedies may result in respiratory pneumonia. A medical doctor can quickly diagnose bronchitis and prescribe antibiotics when necessary to control the infection. Make the best use of life by learning and reading as much as possible. read about things unknown, and more about things known, like about Acute Bronchitis.

This isn't to suggest that all home cures are of no value. Many such as hot tea and lemon can work wonders in calming a hacking cough. Medicated warm mist vaporizers can loosen congestion an aid in breathing. Neither of these home remedies however can take the place of an appropriate antibiotic treatment.
  • Homeopathy is the treatment of disease by consuming natural materials that are claimed to simulate the symptoms of the disease.
  • The natural products are diluted in water and so the claimed effective ingredient can be given in extremely small amounts.
  • The efficacy of this type of treatment is rejected by most medical experts today.
  • While it may be argued that homeopathy may have its place, the treatment of bronchitis is not such a situation.
  • The reason is that bronchitis, if left on its own may develop into pneumonia. life is short.
  • Use it to its maximum by utilizing whatever knowledge it offers for knowledge is important for all walks of life.
  • Even the crooks have to be intelligent! Smile

Medical doctors today are in a battle with us as consumers to limit the use of antibiotics to only when necessary. It's the over-prescribing of these wonder drugs that has created many of the super bacteria that are now immune to the antibiotic medications. Still, wouldn't it be great to have some effective cough medicine to relieve your child's hacking cough in the middle of the night if the natural cures that working. Wink

Smoking causes many health problems for the smoker. One of the major problems is the build up of toxic material in the body and in particular in the lungs.
