Bronchitis is a condition in which the bronchial tubes lining get inflamed. Due to this inflammation, the passage of air to and fro the lungs becomes almost impossible. Bronchitis can be classified into acute and chronic, the former being more common. Chronic bronchitis, on the other hand, happens when a person smokes on regular basis and exposes the lungs to harmful smoke thereby leading to constant irritation of lining of bronchial tubes. Acute bronchitis is the result of respiratory infection by virus. Common symptoms of bronchitis are cough, thick mucus (greenish or yellowish tinged), shortness of breath, chest discomfort, fatigue and sometimes accompanied with fever and chills. Most people resort to antibiotics to get relief from bronchitis. But this condition can be very well be tackled at home with natural ingredients if the right step is taken at the right moment.
