You go to the doctor and he tells you that you have bronchitis. He offers you antibiotics but you decide you will try essential oils. Having a bout of bronchitis can be a stressful.
When your bronchi and muscles surrounding them become narrowed, breathing becomes difficult. Many things can cause or trigger you to develop bronchitis. Air born allergens, food allergies, chemical sensitivities or even some times exercise will set you off coughing.
The situation can be compounded if you also have asthma. Coughing and wheezing result as you attempt desperately to breathe.
Asthma is or can be a serious medical condition and should never be taken lightly. Please follow your doctors instructions especially if you have asthma and bronchitis together. Bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi.
Again this can be caused by many of the same triggers for asthma. Thick mucus accumulates as the bronchial walls are irritated and inflamed. It can be difficult to expel this mucus.
Often times, bronchitis will develop at the end of a cold or other upper respiratory infection. Remember that you should always consult your physician before implementing aromatherapy.
Since the telltale sign of bronchitis is caused by congestion and inflammation of the bronchial passage ways in the lungs, it can make it difficult to breath. If the mucous is thick and sticky, it becomes very difficult to cough it up and get it out of your chest. It can be caused by allergens and/or infections.
It can be an acute attack - sudden onset, as seen with colds and upper respiratory or it can be chronic - which could be due to a lingering bacterial infection or due to irritations from environmental exposure to dust and other pollutants. There are several essential oils that can help with bronchitis.
