What is bronchitis?

Bronchitis is the inflammation of the mucous membranes of the bronchi, the passages that carry air from the trachea into the lungs. Acute bronchitis is characterized by the development of a cough with or without the production of mucus. It often occurs during the course of an acute viral illness such as the common cold or influenza.

Acute bronchitis usually originates with a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract, such as a cold or sore throat, which can become a secondary infection and spread to the lungs. Though usually mild, it may be serious in debilitated people and those with chronic lung or heart disease.

Herbs for bronchitis

Depending of the type of bronchitis, the useful properties of herbs are different.

For acute bronchitis, you should choose herbs that are:

  • Expectorants, to help get rid of mucus
  • Antispasmodics, if coughing is very troublesome.
  • Antimicrobials, in case of infection, or to prevent the development of secondary infection.
  • Anti-inflammatories, if there is extensive inflammation, and especially if the larynx is involved.

For chronic bronchitis, you should choose herbs that are:

  • Bronchodilators: they will increase airflow by opening airways and facilitate breathing
  • Demulcents, that will soothe any associated irritation.
  • Antispasmodics, if coughing is severe.
  • Antimicrobials, to help the body get rid itself of any accompanying infection.

Let now have a look at the herbs you can use:

For acute bronchitis:

  • Tsulilago: this herb has anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties. It is recommended for both acute and chronic bronchitis, as both types need a plant with these properties.
  • If you have an infection or want to reduce the risk of further infection, replace Tsulilago by Thyme (or take both together): Thyme is also an antispasmodic, and furthermore has antiseptic/antimicrobial properties.
  • Eucaliptus is an expectorant, which will be useful if you have a lot of mucus within the lung.
  • If you have fever, we recommend adding Horehound, which help you reduce the fever.

For chronic bronchitis:

  • Tsulilago: this herb has anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties. It is recommended for both acute and chronic bronchitis, as both types need a plant with these properties.
  • If you have an infection or want to reduce the risk of further infection, replace Tsulilago by Thyme (or take both together): Thyme is also an antispasmodic, and furthermore has antiseptic/antimicrobial properties.
  • Radal is one of the only herbs that is a bronchodilator, it is therefore recommended for chronic bronchitis. By opening airways, it might reduce frequency/severity of chronic bronchitis. It also has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.
  • English plantain and Mullein share the same demulcent property: they will help reduce irritation, which often appears in chronic bronchitis.
  • Eucaliptus is an expectorant, which will be useful if you have a lot of mucus within the lung.
  • If you have fever, we recommend adding Horehound, which help you reduce the fever.
