Natural remedies in bronchitis

The lungs are among the largest organs of the body and without them being functional our body could not survive. In the lungs, the exchange between oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place, the air we breathe enters our body through the trachea, and these connect with the bronchi, branches of the respiratory system, the oxygen reaching the alveoli and eliminating the carbon dioxide.

Bronchitis is an inflammatory or obstructive disease that affects the airways preventing the lungs from receiving enough oxygen due to the accumulation of mucus; these accumulations can be accompanied by other symptoms such as cough, fever, chest and/or back pain, fatigue, sore throat, breathing difficulties and sometimes chills.

Bronchitis usually appears in the cold periods of the year and usually starts like a cold.

Bronchitis can be acute or chronic, the acute being caused, in general, by a bacterial infection or viruses. Acute bronchitis usually goes away on its own in a few weeks, but if the immune system is weakened, it can lead to pneumonia.

Chronic bronchitis occurs when the lungs are frequently irritated by certain external factors such as cigarette smoke, polluted air, toxins, allergens, etc.
