Bronchitis: effective natural remedies
Rather frequent inflammation of the bronchi, bronchitis can be acute or chronic.

Treating bronchitis without an antibiotic is possible, of course, as long as there are no complications in between. First of all, it is recommended not to expose yourself to the cold, drink a lot, rest, do not smoke and use a humidifier for the rooms. The most useful plants for fighting inflammation are: sage, violet, pine, birch, plantain, marshmallow, mullein and primrose roots. These herbal remedies help to expel phlegm, improve breathing and calm coughs.
If you need a strong treatment , prepare an infusion based on: 30 g of mallow flowers, 35 g of pine, 25 g of licorice root and 10 g of mint leaves. When the water boils, let it rest for 20 minutes, then filter and consume still hot. This compound is considered a real natural antibiotic for bronchitis. Don't forget essential oils , too, which are valuable for inhalations. The most suitable are: tea tree, juniper, cypress, pine, thyme and lavender.
