I believe I have chronic bronchitis. I have gotten it every winter around Christmas and every spring when it gets cool and damp. This past time I was introduced to a seed called fenugreek. My step mom made a tea from it and added a big bloop of honey. It cleared my nose up faster than a toilet snake... I was able to breathe easier afterwards.

The directions for making the tea:
Full a large mug with boiling water and put 2-3 spoonfuls (tablespoon? Large spoon for soup?)
Let it steep stew of whatever for 10 minutes with a cover on the mug
Put a big bloop or small bloop of honey in
Drink it while it is hot

You can find the seeds at most bulk food stores. This trick works for me very well.

My wife wants to try this as she is having chest congestion problems right now.  She wants to know if the greenery needs to be used with the seeds.  If so, should it be dried or fresh?  Then I have to figure what a bloop is in the states. :rolling:   Love it.

A bloop is like a glug, only different.

A bloop is 1.5 dollops or 3/4's of a glug.

I thought a bloop was between a glop and a glug.

A bloop is a little more than a slop and a little less than a glug

A bloop is an SAE measurement.
It's .79624519 of a metric glug and thru a twist of mathematics, actually equals a dollop plus a shake

I haven't had bronchitis since I stopped getting the flu shot. Maybe coincidence don't know. I would get it at least once a year, some years twice. Haven't had it in last 4 years. Been getting a lot less colds also.

Don't want to step on any toes but I do much better with NO flu shots as well. The school used to force us to get them and I would be sicker than a dog for at least a week sometimes more. Quit getting them and haven't hugged the porcelain since....

Guys, two things, you can't measure a glug without a milligram scale, and you can't get flu from a flu shot.

Seriously, the flu is a respiratory infection and doesn't cause nausea and vomiting as a rule. The shot can raise hystimine levels and cause sniffles for a day or two. It's a killed virus and cannot infect you. If you're sick when you get the shot, it can make you feel worse. The flu mist can make you sick, and often does and I don't recommend it unless you're 16-35 and very healthy. My wife is a retired MD, I'm a hillbilly.

No green leafy stuff required just the seeds
