When is Bronchitis Contagious - Get Rid of Your Cough Faster by Understanding What's Causing It
Order to properly treat a cough, one must first determine the root cause of his cough.  Most often, a person will experience significant coughing when experiencing the common cold, the flu, or bronchitis.

Cough can be Considered Wet/Chesty or Dry
Many times a cough starts out as being dry and then progresses to being considered a wet/chesty cough.  A dry cough is mostly considered a bothersome nuisance.  It has no real purpose in helping to rid the body of anything. We have not included any imaginary or false information on Bronchitis Condition here. Everything here is true and up to the mark!

Sana'a Baba is the Owner of ***** as Well as a Practicing Attorney
As an attorney, I've learned the importance of asking questions and getting as much of the facts as possible.  This practice definitely is important when it comes to our bodies and health.  When a person is empowered by having knowledge about what is going on with one's body, he/she is more likely to take an active role in seeking the proper treatment when he has an ailment. I have always been a self advocate of trying natural remedies before immediately turning to over- used conventional medicine.  For information about getting rid of a cough with a natural remedy visit ***** to see what tested and tried natural cough remedy has worked for others. Enhancing your vocabulary is our intention with the writing of this article on Flu Bronchitis. We have used new and interesting words to achieve this.

Bronchitis is a condition that exists when an inflammation of the bronchial tubes, which are the main air passages that bring air to the lung tissue, exists. When these passages become aggravated they produce mucous, which in turn stimulates coughing in an effort to clear the passages. Using our imagination has helped us create a wonderful article on Bronchitis. Being imaginative is indeed very important when writing about Bronchitis!

Addition, one should be aware of whether or not the phlegm is green or yellow in color, which may be indicative of a bacterial infection, in which case one should speak with his physician.  If blood appears in the mucous that is coughed up, medical attention should be sought immediately as there may be a serious underlying condition causing the cough.  Also, if you experience a shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, seek immediate medical attention.

Wet Cough can be Beneficial in Aiding the Body to Expel Phlegm from the Chest
A wet/ chesty cough can be categorized as being productive or non-productive.  Wet coughs are considered to be productive when mucous is being moved from the chest.  A cough is considered to be non-productive when mucous is not being expelled from the chest regardless of the coughing. Even the beginner will get to learn more about Flu Bronchitis after reading this article. It is written in easy language so that everyone will be able to understand it. :D.

  • Cough which accompanies the common cold, flu or a sinus infection is categorized as an acute cough.
  • An acute cough is a cough which lasts less than two to three weeks.
  • In this instance, the normal cause of a cough has found to be stimulation of the cough reflex by postnasal drip and/or clearing of the throat.
  • A cough is considered chronic when it persists for longer than two to three weeks.
  • Suppressing our knowledge on Cold Flu Bronchitis is not our intention here.
  • In fact, we mean to let everyone know more about Cold Flu Bronchitis after reading this!
Ginseng is Known as an Adaptogenic Herb
An adaptogen is an herb that regulates and helps the body handle stress and maintain vitality.  Adaptogens are used for long term revitalization and not for immediate energy like central nervous system stimulants such as caffeine.

  • Contraindications:  Panax, meaning panacea, is NOT universally applicable in every illness like its name implies.
  • Yang Ginsengs should not be taken during acute inflammatory disease or for bronchitis.
  • Use the yin American Ginseng for bronchitis.
  • The yang Ginsengs are used in combination with other herbs to temper their powerful nature.
  • Ginseng comes in two varieties, red and white.
  • Red Ginseng is cured by steaming which gives it its color and yang attributes.
  • So, next time you go to the health food store, don't just ask for Ginseng, be specific.
Ginseng in general provides energy to all body systems, is a stimulant for brain and memory centers, helps lower cholesterol and regulates sugar use in the body. Ginseng also promotes regeneration from stress and fatigue. All Ginsengs contain measurable amounts of germanium, a trace mineral also in mushrooms.

Siberian Ginseng (Also Called Eleuthero or Eleutherococcus Senticosus) Comes from China
It is known for its long-term energy effects on the adrenal glands and circulation. In this day and age, most of our American population is overtaxing their adrenal glands with excess stress. There are just too many tasks enticing us to utilize our available time. We are spending less and less time with our families and doing what nourishes us (our Life Purpose or God Path.) Siberian Ginseng is a yang tonic herb, so it stimulates fast, hot, male energy type of function. Siberian Ginseng has been used for rheumatic complaints, low vitality, and weak liver and kidney energy for about 2000 years.  It is considered less heating (less yang) than the Panax varieties (therefore safer.)

Panax is Rich in Phyto-Hormones for Both Men and Women's Problems
For men it helps in the formation of testosterone and for women it protects against breast cancer, hence the term adaptogenic (it will adapt to the needs of the body no matter what is needed and no matter what sex.) For this reason, Panax also fits into the aphrodisiac category.  Panax Ginseng is used for enhancing the immune system, impotence and premature ejaculation, poor sleep and nervous exhaustion. It is especially useful for older bodies with debilitating conditions. Ignorance is bliss they say. However, do you find this practical when you read so much about Bronchial Infections?

Panax notoginseng (Also known as Pseudoginseng or San Qi) is grown in China and is used as an analgesic and to stop internal and external bleeding. It is also added to treatments for coronary heart disease and angina. Quite interestingly, San Qi was used extensively by the North Vietnamese during the Vietnam War to increase recovery rates from gunshot wounds. Avoid this one during pregnancy. It could harm the fetus. Make the best use of life by learning and reading as much as possible. read about things unknown, and more about things known, like astmatic bronchitis.

Panax Ginseng, (Also known as Asian Ginseng, Korean Ginseng, Chinese Ginseng, Ren Shen, Xi Yang Shen, or Say Yang Sum), grown in Korea is the broadest spectrum of all adaptogenic herbs. It is also considered one of the most prized and expensive herbs. Panax ginseng stimulates both long and short-term energy, so is know as a yang tonic replenishing Qi (energy.)

American Ginseng (Also Called Panax Quinquefolius, Xi Yan Shen) is a Yin Tonic
Yin tonics are cooling and slowing in nature. American Ginseng is used in China for fevers and for exhaustion due to chronic wasting diseases. It is also used for coughs related to lung weaknesses (such as tuberculosis, bronchial infections or asthma.)

  • Use Siberian Ginseng in my 'Old Dog Formula' to increase the circulation to the butt muscles and lower spine.
  • I once had a client who came in regularly for Old Dog Formula for their two very aged shelties.
  • I noticed that they came in a bit more regularly than they should for the dosage I had recommended.
  • When I asked them about it, they confessed that they were also using the product with fabulous results.
  • I like it too and use it occasionally for gardening season.
Wild Ginseng, from Manchuria, is Considered the Best, but is Extremely Expensive
For centuries in the East, top-grade Ginseng roots have been valued more than gold. life is short. Use it to its maximum by utilizing whatever knowledge it offers for knowledge is important for all walks of life. Even the crooks have to be intelligent!
