New studies are showing promising results for using natural remedies to treat bronchitis. Yoga, meditation, and using herbs are among the most popular and effective treatments.
It might seem surprising, but because yoga and meditation focus on deep breathing it has been shown to increase the flow of oxygen and improve lung function.
Holy basil, Malabar nut, turmeric, trikatu, and umcka have all been used to treat bronchitis. Chewing on holy basil or Malabar nut leaves, or adding one teaspoon of turmeric to a glass of milk may reduce inflammation caused by bronchitis. Trikatu, a mixture of black pepper and dried ginger, strengthens the immune system so you can better fight bronchitis, while the African herbal extract, umcka, is effective at preventing chronic bronchitis.
