Bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi, part of the system of tubes that transport air throughout the lungs. Bronchitis can be acute, which is often associated with viral or bacterial infections, or chronic, which can be caused by long-term exposure to air pollutants and cigarette smoke. Chronic bronchitis can also occur with chronic asthma, and it is often difficult to separate the two.
Treatment Plan for Bronchitis
Herbs for acute bronchitis include immune stimulants, cooling expectorants if there is heat, warming expectorants, respiratory tonics, and anti-infection herbs.
