my new dawn

acute bronchitis

Posted on: November 25, 2010

as of today, i am now on day 13 since i was hit with a case of acute bronchitis

i never had acute bronchitis before, so experiencing a respiratory infection that can knock a person out for 2 weeks or more is quite a revelation to me

makes the five day flu seem like a sunday walk in the park

the thing is 90% of the acute bronchitis cases are viral – so the virus does it thing and runs its slow course no matter what

although since i am a big practitioner of natural remedies, i used lots of things like colloidal silver, oil of oregano, nascent iodine and prayer, of course

and i did actually find breathing relief from Ancient Minerals magnesium oil used in a nebulizer – in addition to the over the counter antihistamine known as Chlor-Trimeton (i appreciate a good drug in an acute situation)

so i do know my day to day symptoms were greatly ameliorated by these additional measures

but the overall fatigue from the virus doing its thing has kept me resting most of the day on every day

here’s to healthy lungs – i won’t take them for granted after this experience, that’s for dang sure

“The spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”

Job 33:4
