2. Ginger

Ginger is often used for treating nausea and vomiting, but did you know that it can also help relieve the symptoms of bronchitis? Ginger has natural immune-boosting compounds as well as powerful anti-inflammatory agents that can relieve swollen, inflamed and irritated bronchial airways. Drink ginger tea with a bit of honey and cinnamon two or three times each day to get relief from the symptoms of bronchitis.

 

3. Olive Leaf Extract

Olive leaf extract is one of the most powerful natural antibiotics known to man. The best thing about olive leaf extract is that, unlike prescription antibiotics, olive leaf blocks and prevents viruses from duplicating. This means that the earlier you start taking olive leaf extract, the faster you will recover because the virus cannot continue to grow. Olive leaf extract improves the immune system, fights fatigue, and heals inflammation.

 

4. Garlic

Most people know that garlic is terrific for the heart, but few know that garlic is a very powerful antibiotic. Garlic is a natural anti-inflammatory that also has anti-viral compounds that can really help to fight bronchitis, even acute bronchitis. Garlic must be chopped or crushed to release its active compounds. Crush two whole cloves of garlic, and swallow them whole if you can. You can also try consuming some chicken soup with lots of garlic in it.

 

5. Oregano Oil

Oregano oil is second only to olive leaf extract when it comes to antibiotic power. It has super powerful antioxidants that make it one of the best ways to fight bronchitis or to prevent the flu from turning into bronchitis. Oregano oil has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory compounds. Add five to 10 drops of oregano oil to a glass of water (use a straw if it burns your lips), or consume a supplement with 250 to 300 milligrams twice each day.

 

6. Turmeric

Turmeric is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatories on earth, which makes it great for treating the inflamed airways that come with bronchitis. Turmeric needs fat to be processed by the body, so add a tablespoon of turmeric to a glass of milk and drink once or twice each day. You can also take a supplement. Most people find that two grams each day works, but consult your doctor if you are taking any other type of prescription medications. You should not take turmeric if you have gallstones, ulcers, or obstructive jaundice.
