Natural remedies to calm irritated lungs?

  • I think I have bronchitis or something.
    Been coughing for weeks.
    Up till today, I have been getting through it fine enough.
    Lungs are quite clear and can breathe, but lungs feel irritated/congested. Coughing doesn't satisfy! No fluid there.
    Even yesterday it was different. Even earlier today I was fine.
    I probably shouldn't have taken that most recent dose of cough syrup/expectorant. It cleans my lungs out the rest of the way (thins the mucus) but that's not my problem. My problem is bronchial irritation.
    Anyhow, I'm "too good" at coughing; being very sensitive, I'm very "aware" of my lungs and always cough to clear them out 100%.

    Right now I've thrown almost everything at this, and my lungs are still bothering me. The only thing that gives me a few minutes of relief is popping another cough drop. But I've had too many of those; I need to find another solution.

    Any home remedies I can resort to, to get some relief?

    Currently trying higher humidity, steam vaporizer w/vicks, some vicks on my chest. The hardest part is taking my mind off my lungs.

    Thanks in advance!

  • I have also had an issue in recent weeks, as did my boss before me.  I am fine now, but it lingered inexplicably.  Are they perhaps playing around with the 5G?  I have been within range of such influences much more of late.

    My wife made a home-made medicine that worked well, but she's been asleep for hours now (I closed the restaurant tonight, thus I am awake at 3am).  Will ask her about it in the morn.

  • Isn't your bronchial irritation due to the coughing?

    Far as cough drops go, the best cough drop that really is a cough suppressant is Fisherman's Friend Original Extra Strong, I think the capsicuм (which is the #1 ingredient) + 10mg Menthol is what makes the difference.  These things are strong and *will* stop the cough for longer than any other cough drop I know of - and clear you up quick. You can get them at Rite Aids or one of those, or order online. Halls cough drops are a sugary candy and very weak in comparison.

    Try a partial teaspoon of horse radish, or as much as you can stand a few times a day. It's a rough way to go but unlike peppers/capsaicin, the heat from horseradish has vapors that can work their way into the membranes, or use ginger, it's a bit weaker but kinda does the same thing.

  • You could try an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen so assess whether it's due to inflammation.

    But I've had cases of bronchitis before where the cough lingered literally for months.

  • Peel and slowly brown a full bulb of fresh garlic in a little butter.  Eat the browned cloves throughout the day.  Do this daily.

    also, 1 tsp local raw honey or Manuka honey (if you can't find local raw) two to three times a day (best first thing AM and last thing PM).

  • Take 2-4000 mg of Vit C every 4 hrs until it stops. (You will get diarrhea, but its worth it) Also take 600 mg of Magnesium which is a smooth muscle relaxer which will calm your bronchial tubes. 

    f you would like to try 30 ml of Black cuмin Seed oil (not pills) 3 times a day it is very helpful for breathing. It does taste terrible though

    Black cuмin seed oil is amazing in it's liquid form. Traditionally it's taken one T of both the oil and raw honey.
