What protochol should I use to get better after a attach of acute brochitis?
Normally I dont have any astmalike problems
- I just think a combo of a nasty cold- stress and maybe weather gave me this nasty B.
I want to stop couching !

while your waiting for portochol, info you can use cayenne pepper in foods and drinks like lemon water, or tea warm or cold, and see if that starts breaking it down fast.

flavanoids like quercitan(or try my garlic soup, http://www.dadamo.com/bloggers/6/archives/00000014.htm )

Magnesium helps to calm B's

Yes, prob so  :'( , however you will then have it on hand for the next bout.  ;)  I really really like this stuff.
Have you tried any natural antihistamines? That should dry your cough, BUT beware that it will also dry up your chest, so it you give that a try, be double sure to get in all your water each day and prob some extra.  ;) :)

Cool mist humidifier.  Worked wonders for me last year.  You need to get that cool moisture in your lungs for them to heal.

Elderberry... in whatever form you have (although I'll admitt, I've never tried elderberry wine ;D) works wonders for me when under the weather. Elderberries are neutral for B secretor's, but they are a super bennie in some of the health books.

Feel better soon Henriette!! :K) I bet you already do too :) Whenever I get to the point where I am fed up with being sick and desperately want to feel better... I usually do. It is like it signals a turning point in the illness, or something similar.

Can you get some Yerba Sante tincture?  It is a good cough remedy and is mildly expectorant.

Hope you recover quickly, Henriette!!  :-)

K:
Elderberry :-D
.... all the oher years I have made my own proberry sirup; elderberry, cherry, blueberry, bluegrapes and raspeberry boiled down with sugar - but this year( or more correct last september / octobre) it was so dry here that the birds got hold of the berries before me :'( - lucky enough none of us have been sick all winter

V:
Yerba Santa ??) will look for it.

Yes you are right - Im impatient.... hate to cough....

Added later - no it is no possible to get YS here- but I found out the blue violets ( Viola odorata) should be really efficient- my lawn is blue of them at the moment.
I was thinking that I would pick some to make candied violets for cakes... but maybe better to do somthing against my cough.

Here's a followup question from a newbie:

What do you do about chronic, recurring bronchitis?  Any suggestion on supplements to strengthen this area?  

Also, one of my main reasons - well in all honesty THE main reason! - I decided to take the plunge and test-drive the BTD for myself, is that I have horrible allergies that have just gotten worse as the years go by.  Geometrically worse, it seems.  Really bad.  I do know of someone whose ex-husband went on the Atkins diet and she said "his allergies went away" because of it, so am hoping for the same results on what I believe is a superior (and more scientifically tested and provable) diet plan.

My own husband has allergies, too, though not to the same degree of severity.  He doesn't know his blood type and is not really interested in the BTD but at least he's supportive of me in this new dietary adventure.

Henriette,
beware of sugar.  I have read that 1 Tb of sugar will depress the immune system for 2 to 4 hours.  Not what you need!

dragonsgold5, wishing you a warm welcome to BTD and the forums!!  ;D
For me, all my bronchitis went away once starting BTD. Your big avoids (or they are for me) for this particular illness, are dairy and wheat. Actually those are the first 2 things we are advised to avoid on the first week, if we're doing the diet in weekly steps.  ;)  I used to have bronchitis all the time, it's so nice not to deal w/ it anymore. A month or so ago, I thought I was getting it, as the DH had it already. I always felt like I was only a step ahead. Turned out it was the heart issue, instead of bronchitis. Could I have a do-over? LOL  ;)

Italybound, was your bronchitis allergy-related?  How long did it take on the BTD for you to see a difference?  

I've almost[b][/b] eliminated wheat and dairy completely from my diet....

Non-BTD suggestion - Vitamin E is very good for the mucus membranes.

Hi Dragon,

Have you considered investing in the secretor test?

thanks - I couldnt somehow find the  Pulmonary Support prothocol...

Yes Victoria -  is really bad.especialy when sick...
my only intake of sugar is small ammount during the weekend, never during the week.
I have wondered if I could make the "proberry" sirup- with honey instead ?!
- I have lots of that being a beekeeper ;-D - and honey has a compleetely different affect on me.

Yes my bronchitis was allergy related - food 'allergy'.   ;D  I had all kinds of allergy symptoms........I thought they were due to outside pollens, environmental things, etc............ turns out, at least 95% of it was from foods.  I saw relief within the first week, but I started BTD cold turkey and at 100%.  :)

Actually, I am considering it....but maybe not just yet.  For now I'm going to assume (since it's 80 to 85% likely) that I'm a secretor.

I just wanted to share:
Today I looked at my herbal book... and suddenly it came to me licorice tea.!!!..
and sure as...
It said Licorice tea is very good when you have bronchitis -so after dinner I had 1 cup and now 2 hours later
- when I normally coughs like crazy - no cough :-D
and it is beneficial or neutral for all.

Thanks Henriette!  Have to put that in my memory bank (or a notebook) so I use it next time we have a persistent cough.

Be careful ladies licorice tea is VERY estrogenic  :'( :-/

Italybound: The recommendation of Gotu Kola is much much better; taking it in combo with Licorice regulates the Adrenals and feeds them, makes them stronger, and that is a huge help once stress gets the better of you.

Cheers :)

I'll be feeling this way too if I ever have a bad cough. I remember pre-BTD being up and down many, many nights w/ a cough. It was awful enough to be coughing, but then you're exhausted the next day from no sleep and coughing, right HB? :-/
I will stil continue to drink my few cups a week of the licorice, but will look for the Gotu Kola as well.   Thanks again Zuki  :K)

Hey,
I don't know, if this is to late and You are o.k. But I like to recommend a plant the latin name is Plantago lanceolata German expression is SPITZWEGERICH yust take a sirup wich is real good. Or try Malva sylvestris MALVE/KSEPAPPEL(german), Tussilago farfara HUFLATTICH(german), some juice of Sambucus nigra HOLUNDER (german), and of cause some tea from Salvia officinalis ECHTER SALBEI
(german) For today all the best and have good health.

Thanks Le pen- always good to get new information to put down in my book :-D
My cough is finally gone.
The herbs you recommend are the same I saw in my danish herbal book- but some of them are untested like
Platago, malva and tussilago- That Is why I havnt done them.
Sage tea( salvia officanalis) I use sometimes as well as the elderberry juice( Sambucus)- but I did not harvest any last year due to hot weather.

was searching for "yerba santa" & this thread came up so now I have 2 questions - First I learned that yerba santa is supposedly great for increasing tolerance of salicylates... so went searching for BTD info re yerba santa - is it related to yerba mate at all?

& now also re the above concerning licorice tea being VERY estrogenic?? What does this mean exactly? I am low on estrogen (well seem to be high on testosterone, anyway, so some inbalance post menopause..)
I also seem to remember licorice tea being not so good for a certain blood pressure -high I think? Mine is normal & if anything drops too low... :-/

Italybound ... The only thing Mucinex did for me was give me a bloody nose. Did nothing to help my bronchitis. Everything ran down my throat into my chest. I can't take any synthetic/otc/prescription meds for sinus or bronchitis, it seems, because of my heart.
Dragonsgold ... Two months later I still cough up tiny pieces of yellow thick flem a few times a day, but the bad, hacking, continual cough is finally gone, after elderberry, olive leaf, heavy vitamin C, etc.  A lot of people around this section of my state have it. Even my friend's husband, a doctor, can't seem to shake it.
