Can I Catch Bronchitis?

Is Bronchitis Contagious?

Can I catch bronchitis? Here's what you need to know to protect yourself.

Technically, no you cannot catch bronchitis. Bronchitis is inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes. The inflammation (when it turns red like the skin around a cut) causes the bronchioles (tubes that the air passes through) to spasm. A spasm to your bronchial tubes is like a cramp to your leg, the difference being you will cough instead of having pain as with a cramp.

Although you cannot catch bronchitis, you can catch the virus, bacteria or trigger from someone else that could cause the bronchitis.

Can I Protect Myself From Bronchitis?

The best defense from bronchitis is a strong immune system. The easiest way to keep your immune system strong is to eat at least 50% and as much as 80% of your meal as raw foods. By raw, we mean fruits and veggies, not sushi.

Additionally, cutting back on red meat and eating white meat or even fish may help.

Certain foods have immune boosting properties that can further help.

The water cures protocol will also help in two ways.

One, it will help your body become more alkaline. Bacteria and viruses do not do well in an alkaline environment. Inflammation also is decreased by alkalinity.

Two, the water cures protocol also provides our cells with the needed water and the essential minerals we need to live. The healthier we are, the stronger our immune system will be.

What About Supplements?

Some people swear by supplements. We disagree. Unless you are in advanced stages of illness or you refuse to eat healthy, the foods will do the job for you.

The exceptions are...

Zinc Lozenges: These provide the necessary zinc in a form that it can be readily absorbed into the blood from our mucous membranes. They also coat our throat which will slow down or even kill the bacteria and viruses.

You should not take them if you have or will be eating citrus fruits for 2 hours before or after. Likewise, they should not be used if you have just drank or plan on drinking coffee or tea for a few hours.

NAC or N-Acetylcysteine: is a powerful immunity booster. To help it work better, do not eat a high protein diet for a few hours before and up to a few hours after taking it. If you are exposed to someone who coughs a lot, studies have found it will help prevent you from being a sharer in other peoples bronchitis.

If you are taking it, also consider taking 2 to 3 Brazil nuts the same day. Likewise, vitamin D 3 will help it work even better.

It need not be taken more than once of twice a day. First thing in the AM and at noon at the latest. Some have found it gives them increased energy, which is not good if you want to sleep at night so avoid taking it after noon.

Vitamin D3: is especially good if you lack sun light. One study found that even young people on the beach often could be deprived of vitamin D. So, seasonally supplement till your health is content.

Can I Catch Bronchitis If I Do All of This?

So, is bronchitis contagious? Can I catch bronchitis? And if so, how long is bronchitis contagious? With the exception of viral bronchitis, you will most likely not have a problem so long as you maintain a healthy immune system.

The Great Salt Debate
Here is the Science

We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
