Bronchitis and Homeopathy
Bronchitis is a lower respiratory tract infection which results due to bronchial tube inflammation.
There are two types - Acute & Chronic bronchitis
Acute bronchitis occurs most frequently during the winter lasting for few days or weeks. Acute bronchitis is mostly self-limiting, that is, the body`s defense clears the infection. But prompt treatment is advisable to prevent complications like bronchopneumonia.
- It often follows an upper respiratory tract infection, such as a cold or flu and may accompany a bacterial infection.
- It may also occur when acids from the stomach consistently back up into the food pipe, a condition known as gastroesophagial reflux disease (GERD) leading to irritation of the passage.
- Workers exposed to certain dusts or fumes may develop occupational bronchitis.
Chronic Bronchitis is not necessarily caused by infection and is generally part of a syndrome called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Affected individual has persistent cough that produces sputum & mucus, for at least three months in two consecutive years.
- Cigarette smoke, including long term exposure to second-hand smoke, is the main cause of chronic bronchitis
