Bronchitis is infection and inflammation of the mucous lining of the trachea and bronchi .It exists in both acute & chronic forms & usually develops as a sequel to upper respiratory infections such as cold or influenza. Other factors predisposing to bronchitis include cold, damp living conditions, foggy and dusty atmosphere, smoking and chronic mouth breathing, which allow unfiltered and unwarmed air to enter the bronchi. The condition occurs most frequently amongst elderly people , children & smokers of any age. Bronchitis would be rare if people ate the right foods & their systems were not filled with mucus & poisonous waste matters, & if they wore proper clothing. Where there is Bronchitis, there is usually stomach trouble or constipation. It is brought on by changeable weather, catching cold, exposure, wet feet & chilling. Bronchitis becomes chronic when acute bronchitis is not properly treated & relieved. When a cold is allowed to run, it gets down into the bronchial tubes and lungs and becomes chronic. Sometimes , if it is not overcome , it will finally go into pneumonia, consumption or tuberculosis of the lungs.
