Chronic Bronchitis - Prevention and Cure Through Unani Medicine


 The bronchi are air passages connecting the windpipe (trachea) with the sacs of lungs (alveoli), where oxygen is taken up by blood. Bronchitis is an inflammation of bronchi causing excessive mucus production and swelling of the bronchial walls.
Chronic bronchitis is the term applied when coughing and sputum continues for 2-3 months and returns each year for at least two years generally lasting slightly longer each time. According to the Unani system of medicine ‘Sual’ or cough is an act by which body tries to remove the irritating substances from organs (lungs). The act of cough is performed by contraction and relaxation of chest muscles and diaphragm. Sometimes chronic bronchitis is associated with airflow obstruction and may be associated with breathlessness.
Causes
According to Unani system of medicine, chronic bronchitis is caused due to accumulation of excessive phlegm in the respiratory system that causes irritation to the sacs of the lung thereby resulting in cough. The incidence of chronic bronchitis is more in winter and spring season. It is more prevalent in males. Cigarette smoking is the most prevalent causative factor of chronic bronchitis. It rarely occurs in non-smokers. Environmental pollution plays a major role in the development of the disease especially excessive quantity of SO2, organic and inorganic dust.
Symptoms
Initially it begins with cough associated with expectoration of small amounts of sputum every morning. In this period the quality of life of the individual is absolutely normal. Gradually, cough becomes more frequent during daytime and even at night. The sputum, which initially was white in colour, may now become yellowish. At a later stage breathlessness and wheezing (a whistling sound produced while breathing) may be present. With the progression in the disease, the quality of life of the individual deteriorates. If the quality of life of the patient is such that he is unable to carry out the daily activities of living independently then he should immediately consult a physician. 
DO’s
  1. Bed rest.
  2. Stay indoors in warm atmosphere.
  3. Regular exercise which includes walking or bicycling 3 times per week.
  4. Oral dietary supplements to improve muscle strength.
  5. Easily digestible meals without overeating.
DON’T’s
  1.  Avoid smoking as it increases the decrease.
  2. Use of hair spray, deodorant spray and paint.
  3. Cough suppressants.
  4. Sedatives.
  5. Diet having wet and cold temperament aid in the production of sputum; hence fat, curd, cold water and citrus fruits should be avoided.

  4. The question is “ is bronchitis contagious “ So chronic bronchitis isn't contagious, but it's a severe health issue that needs a doctor's concern. Acute Bronchitis is contagious, which can last for 1 to 3 weeks? It's usually caused by cold or flu viruses. Since these viruses are contagious, acute bronchitis usually is, too.

  8. I GOT CURED FROM CHRONIC ASTHMATIC BRONCHITIS THROUGH HERBAL MEDICINE
    I am sharing my story in an excited mood. It all started when I woke up with a bad cough. I felt it was because of the cold, maybe, I didn't put on enough warm clothing to sleep. I coughed all through that day. I waited a few days to see if it got worse and it did. I was coughing to the extent of dry heaves and I was vomiting. The cough hurt my throat severely. I finally ended up in the ER. They sent me home with antibiotics, an inhaler, and some pills to stop the coughing.
    After 7 days, of worsening cough, I went back to the hospital where I was diagnosed of chronic asthmatic bronchitis. My wheezing became so loud that I found it difficult to sleep. When I went to the doctor I was given a Z-Pak, albuterol inhaler, oral steroids, cough pills which didn't do any good, and was told to take Mucinex. The more I take these medications, the worse my condition became.
    I went in search for a cure without complications. I read stories of people who had worst cases of bronchitis and asthma. I was happy that people had gone through what I was going through and were cured by herbal medication.
    I contacted the email address shared by someone who suffered bronchitis and was cured by Herbal Medication without complications. I received tremendous improvement after its use. The wheezing stopped totally and my sputum was no longer greenish. In case you have the same issue or you wish to help someone who has, you may contact Dr. Scott for his medication via drevanscott@gmail.com

  12. My husband was diagnosed several years ago with emphysema. He was able to quit smoking and we stayed on top of any illness. He has been hospitalized with pneumonia every year. His breathing has been getting worse but oxygen levels stay in the 97 to 98 range except when he's in hospital. For a year now he has been passing out. It is only for 1 to 3 minutes and was only when he would start coughing. The doctor changed his medications around but he passes out when breathing a bit hard. Also his feet swell up and are numb all the time. He then started using a cane. i searched for alternative treatment before i was introduced to Health herbal clinic by a friend here in the United states she told me they have successful herbal treatment to Emphysema and other lungs diseases. I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the Emphysema herbal formula for my husband and he commenced usage, its totally unexplainable how all the symptoms totally dissapeared, his cough was gone and he no longer experience shortness of breath(dyspnea), contact this herbal clinic via their email healthherbalclinic@ gmail. com Or website www .healthherbalclinic. weebly. com. Herbs are truely gift from God

  15. I have had bouts of bronchitis for about 10 months out of the year for the last 2 years. I've been given z pack antibiotics, steroids which are ineffective and occasionally the prescription cough syrup which works for a 2-3 hours at a time. I am desperate for relief. I am on my third doctor in 6 months and he is treating me with the same drugs. So far no improvement. So far the bronchitis has caused scarring in my lungs, laryngitis, pulled muscles, and a fractured rib.I was desperate for help to help me feel better. i was introduced to Health herbal clinic in Johannesburg who have successful herbal treatment to bronchitis . I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in Canada and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the bronchitis herbal formula and commenced usage, i used the herbal supplement for only 7 weeks, all symptoms gradually faded away, herbs are truly gift from God. contact this herbal clinic via their email healthherbalclinic @ gmail. com or visit www. healthherbalclinic. weebly. com

  16. CURED FROM 3 YEARS CHRONIC BRONCHITIS
    I was diagnosed of chronic bronchitis (CB). I had it for about 3 years. While it lasted, I coughed every day. My throat was always filled with mucus and it never goes away. Some days my cough is more persistent and I'll cough up the mucus; most days I just have a pitiful cough that bothers my throat but I can't stop. I was given prednisone and different inhalers which I used for years. These medications only subdued it for few weeks, but it will return again coupled with wheezing. I also had other heart challenges from using these medications. I got tired of using English medications and inhalers without a cure; I thought I will be stuck with bronchitis forever.
    I needed alternative medications that will restore my health. The wheezing and coughs was getting too much whenever it returns. In search for a cure I went to googled where I read stories of those who had experienced severe cases worst than mine but got cured after using Herbal Medications. Truth is that I never used Herbal medications because I thought if English med failed, what can herbs do for me. But years of bronchitis has removed my doubt as I have tried all known inhalers and medications without cure. I followed the testimonies of an Herbal medication recommended by someone whose bronchitis was caused from years of smoking, but was cured by herbal medication. I contacted Dr. Scott which he mentioned, placed my order and 3 months of use, I noticed tremendous improvement. After I finished the Herbal medication, I have never had bronchitis again till today which was 2 years ago. Well, I trust Dr. Scott herbal medication as a perfect cure for bronchitis.

  17. CURED FROM CHRONIC BRONCHITIS

    Shame is the greatest prisoner that keeps us bound in pains. When one is liberated from shame, he liberates others. Please read my bronchitis cure story, it will help you or someone you know.

    I am 45 years of age, a once social smoker. I smoked for 15, but usually 2 stick of my favorite brand a day. Sometimes, I don’t smoke at all. I could stay without cigarette for a month and later come back before I finally quit. I never saw myself as someone who cigarette can affect.

    It all started suddenly, when I woke up for work, I found out that I was coughing seriously. I wasn’t bothered because I felt maybe the winter was having effect on me. I waited a few days to see if it got worse and it did. I was coughing to the extent of dry heaves and I was vomiting. The cough hurt my throat severely. I finally ended up in the ER. They sent me home with antibiotics, an inhaler, and some pills to stop the coughing. After several weeks, of worsening cough, I went back to the hospital where I was diagnosed of chronic bronchitis. My wheezing became so loud that I found it difficult to sleep. When I went back to the doctor I was given a Z-Pak, albuterol inhaler, Oral steroids, cough pills which didn't do any good, and was told to take Mucinex. The more I take these medications, the worse my condition became.

    I was bothered, because I quit smoking long ago before bronchitis showed up. Further test from my doctor revealed the damage smoking did to me. Was I afraid of death? Yes I was, because I read all the negative reports on bronchitis, and felt maybe I am going to die from it anyway. All the English medications I was placed on, were not just working. Instead, it created several complications in my health. Hospital visitations became a routine I had to live with for 3 years.

    When you are desperate things will change. I believe this word so much. Having taken English medications for 3 years and bronchitis was still active, I resorted to alternative medicine, I started doing research on herbs, I was so fortunate when I read of Dr. Scott Herbal medication for bronchitis. I contacted him, used his Herbal treatment, my bronchitis ended that was 5 five years ago. Today I am completely cured. You too can be free from bronchitis, just contact Dr. Scott, I hope to read your story someday. Dr. Scott can be reached via drevanscott@gmail.com

  21. I was not really having a problem breathing at first. My throat was burning; I thought I had strep throat. I had pain in my neck, and there was swelling around my collar bone. The first doctor I went to said he did not know why there was swelling. He gave me antibiotics and told me that if the swelling was not better to come back in two weeks. I went back in two weeks and he said he did not know what was wrong. Since I do not have insurance, I went to a hospital emergency room, and they said I have COPD.The disease does not improve. My "good days" are far and few these days. My dad and his dad died from this. I am only writing this to inform others that nothing was really working to help my condition.I started on COPD herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic,i read reviews from other previous patients who used the herbal formula, my symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the COPD natural herbal formula. i am now doing very well, my lungs are totally repaired!!
