Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/22/2016 -- Respiratory disorders are affecting millions of people worldwide. One of the most common respiratory conditions is bronchitis. There are medications used for this condition. However, there are also natural remedies believed to be helpful for sufferers.
Turmeric is believed to be beneficial for individuals with respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis. This condition is often caused by lifestyle and environmental factors such as smoking and increased pollution. Tit takes place when there is an inflammation in the air passages of the lungs.
"Turmeric has long been believed to fight a myriad of conditions," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
A viral infection called acute bronchitis typically starts with a cold, and then affects the sinuses and airways. Cough may last for a few days or it may persist for longer periods. Chronic bronchitis, on the other hand, is characterized by a persistent wet cough. It usually affects smokers and causes symptoms such as sore throat, fatigue, mucus buildup, and fever.
Lifestyle and environmental factors such as pollution, bacterial infections, cigarette smoking, and gastroesophageal reflux are among the factors believed to contribute to the development of the condition. Chronic bronchitis is preventable through measures such as avoiding air pollutants and cigarette smoking.
Statistics reveal that in western countries, 15 percent of smokers suffer from chronic bronchitis and 6 percent among individuals who don't smoke. Acute bronchitis could be prevented by avoiding every type of infection. This means avoiding infected people, getting a flu shot, and washing hands.
There is a variety of remedies believed to be helpful for bronchitis. It includes bronchodilators, medicines, nutritional supplements, steam inhalation, homeopathy, and aromatherapy. The use of natural alternatives such as turmeric is also thought to be extremely helpful for the condition.
In Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, turmeric has been used for thousands of years in fighting a myriad of medical conditions. This spice contains medicinal properties such as curcumin, which contains therapeutic substances such as anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.
Turmeric is thought to treat infections that affect the circulatory, respiratory, and digestive systems. Bronchitis causes inflammation in the lungs. The good news is that curcumin does not only offer anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and carminative effects but also anti-inflammatory benefits.
According to clinical trials, turmeric may play a role in fixing blocked airways among individuals with bronchial asthma, bronchiectasis, tropical eosinophilia, and bronchitis. In a laboratory test, it was even found that turmeric has the potential to have anti-asthmatic effects (www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Pepper-Extract/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
