Home Treatment For Bronchitis With Callisia Fragrans
Bronchitis is a respiratory disease in which the mucus membrane in the lungs’ bronchial passages becomes inflamed. If you have acute bronchitis, you should stay in bed. Apart from the medicines prescribed by the doctor, you should take calisaya preparations as well. The treatment of acute bronchitis should be under medical supervision.
In the beginning of the disease you should take a warm decoction of calisaya: 1 tea spoonful 3 times a day 40 minutes before meals. Take it during the whole period of treatment of acute bronchitis. That will help cough out the sticky mucus if you have a dry cough.
Compresses from fresh calisaya leaves will help you, too. Cut the leaves finely, pour over boiling water and put them in gauze. Put the compress on your chest for 15-20 minutes.
If you have chronic bronchitis, use the following mixture to cough out mucus: mix 300 g of honey in half a glass of water, add finely cut calisaya leaf and boil on low fire for 1hour. Leave the mixture to cool, stir well and keep in a dark cool place. Take 1 table spoonful twice a day 40 minutes before meals.
For chronic bronchitis another mixture is suitable, too: 1 tea spoonful of aloe juice, 1 tea spoonful juice of calisaya, and 100 g of honey. Mix the ingredients and keep the mixture in a dark and cool place. Take 1 tea spoonful juice of this mixture in a cup of hot skimmed milk and drink twice a day 1 hour before meals. If you have chronic bronchitis, it is recommendable to massage your chest with an ointment made from lard and calisaya juice.
