Treating chronic cough and bronchitis has always been hard, even for conventional medicine. We are constantly busy with everyday activities and tasks, so we seem to forget to look around us and see that mother nature has a lot to offer.
Even for these both conditions, nature comes to the rescue. However, in order to deal with them, first, you need to understand them.
Chronic cough is a cough which lasts 8 weeks or even longer in some people. You should understand that a chronic cough is more than just a usual annoyance. Sometimes it might be hard to pinpoint the issue which is triggering this cough.
But, the most common causes are acid reflux, tobacco use, asthma and postnasal drip. The good news is that a chronic cough usually disappears once the underlying issue is treated.
Symptoms of a chronic cough include:
- Stuffy or a runny nose
- Postnasal drip – Feeling a liquid running down in your throat
- A sore throat
- Frequent throat cleaning
- Shortness of breath
- Sour taste in the mouth
- Coughing up blood (rare cases)
Bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi (large and medium-sized airways) in the lungs. It occurs when your bronchial tubes, which carry air to your lungs, get infected and swollen. You end up with a nagging cough and a lot more mucus. You can get bronchitis in other ways too.
Most often, the same viruses that give you a cold or the flu also cause bronchitis. Sometimes, though, bacteria are to blame. As your body fights off the germs, your bronchial tubes swell and make more mucus. That means you have smaller openings for air to flow, which can make it harder to breathe.
If you have a weaker immune system, smoke or live with a smoker, work around substances that bother your lungs such as chemical fumes or dust, or live in places with poor air quality, then you are at risk of getting bronchitis.
Symptoms of bronchitis include:
- Slight fever
- A cough
- Shortness of breath
- Production of mucus, which might be green, clear, yellowish-gray or white.
- Chest discomfort

Nature can help when it comes to treating both conditions. Believe it or not, but there is a simple remedy which you can make with common and easily found ingredients.
This remedy can relieve both conditions and help ease the irritation found in the throat. The 2 incredible and common ingredients in this remedy are banana and honey.
The combination of these potent ingredients will not only help you with these 2 conditions, but it will also boost your overall health.

- 2 medium ripe bananas with dots
- 2 tablespoons of raw, organic honey

Peel the bananas and mash them with a plastic or wooden fork or spoon. The banana becomes darker if you mash it with metal cutlery which is not recommended in this case. Next, place bananas in a pot and add boiled water to them. Let mixture steep for 30 minutes.
Finally, when the remedy is cooled off, add honey. You can strain mix if you prefer it transparent. It is important to add the honey last, so it doesn’t lose its important properties over to the boiling water.
