We often have problems like congested nose and throat, heavy breathing and coughs. This is excess lung phlegm. It is thick and in the mucus membranes of that tract, and fights colds or infections. When in chest or throat, we remove it with coughs and excess might be due to flu, bacteria, cold, viruses.
Excess phlegm causes weakness, fever, runny nose, heavy breathing, cough. If not cured, it blocks bronchial tubes and some natural cures can help.
Honey and lemon– this soothes and relieves. Honey will kill fungi and bacteria, lemon has vitamin C for immunity. Mix 1 tbsp honey and 2 spoons juice. Drink 3 times daily.
Ginger– antihistamine and decongestant, removes bacteria and is expectorant. The root soothes chest and removes throat phlegm. Have 4 slices ginger daily and ginger tea too. Gather 7 ginger slices, 2 cups water, small spoon honey, small spoon black peppercorn. Boil the water, add the ginger and peppercorns, cover the pan. Reduce heat and simmer 7 min, strain and add the honey. Sip 3 cups.
Acv– for removal of bacteria. Stops phlegm and also makes good pH. Have spoon Acv and water daily and gargle too.
Turmeric– this has curcuma for bacteria removal. Have 1 tsp turmeric, ½ tsp salt in water. Mix and gargle 4 times daily for the phlegm removal. Also it soothes throat.
Steam– this loosens mucus. Vapors do this and mix ½ tsp rosemary, ½ tsp thyme, 5 cups water and just add the herbs in water to lean over (it is boiled beforehand) so inhale 4 times daily.
Also to prevent such issues, blow the nose, avoid cold drinks or foods, no smoking. Get humidifier, avoid chemicals, cleaners, fumes. Spit phlegm out and gargle with warm water. Also eat pepper and garlic too.
