Whether you have COPD, lung cancer, chronic bronchitis, pneumonia, Post Nasal Drip, Chronic coughing or a common cold, there are practical, natural ideas that may be used to ease the mucus that causes coughing and difficulty breathing. In addition to air pollution, pollen and other airborne allergens, many prescription drugs also cause respiratory congestion, such as long-term use of prescribed inhalers, steroids, birth control pills, antihistamines and certain blood pressure medications. Diet also plays a large role in congestion and mucus formation, such as dairy, sugary foods and beverages, artificial sweeteners (such as Splenda, Equal, Sweet n’ Low, Erythritol, etc.) and simple carbohydrate foods, such as pretzels, breads, potatoes, peas, corn, etc. We recommend following our ANTIFUNGAL FOOD CHOICES LIST diet, which is intended to prevent fungal, parasitic and other microbial overgrowth by helping to starve toxic microbes by omitting the foods and beverages that help them thrive. Those who suffer from auto-immune disorders should also omit dairy from this diet. 

Ginger is a natural decongestant and antihistamine, as well as great for the stomach. The combination of ginger, peppercorns and honey is antiviral, antibacterial and aids with expelling mucus build-up in the lungs, trachea and esophagus.

HOMEMADE GINGER TEA (consume 2-3 times daily until the mucus is gone):

Chop up a fresh ginger rhizome that is about the size of the palm of your hand (just roughly slice it up or chop it in a food processor into slices)

About 1 Tablespoon whole Peppercorns (helps fight infection)

2 Tablespoons of Raw, preferably local, Honey (contains antiseptic properties)

8 cups water

Bring the water to a boil, then turn down to simmer. Add ginger and peppercorns. Cover and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat, leave covered and let steep for another 20-30 minutes. Add honey and mix in well. Consume 2-3 times per day. This is also excellent for a sore throat, so keep these ingredients around for all respiratory issues.

SUPPLEMENTS THAT HELP RESPIRATORY BALANCE Package contains ONE bottle Extra Strength Beta Glucan 250mg, 60 tablets, TWO bottles Oregamax, 90 capsules, ONE bottle high potency Wild-Crafted Mediterranean Oil of Oregano (70% active carvacrols!), 1 oz and ONE bottle OregaSpray. 

The combination in this package is clinically shown to aid with clearing the lungs and throat of congestion and inflammation, aiding with naturally killing the root cause of infection, as well as enhancing immune system function to become better faster, particularly for those with recurring respiratory conditions, such as colds, allergies, asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia, and while they cannot cure progressive diseases caused by severe damages from smoking, pollution, asbestos and other toxic exposure, the products in this package have been found to help ease some of the discomfort of those with COPD, emphysema and other progressive respiratory diseases.

It is safe to take this package with antibiotics that your doctor may prescribe for you and it will help to quicken the healing process under normal circumstances.

NOTE: IF YOUR DOCTOR PRESCRIBES ANTIBIOTICS FOR YOU, PLEASE ALSO TAKE FIGTREE’S PROBIOTIC ENTERIC-COAT (1 capsule 2 hours after each antibiotic dose, plus 1-2 probiotics at bedtime, at least 2 hours after your last antibiotic dose).

THIS PACKAGE IS ALSO HIGHLY EFFECTIVE IF YOU BEGIN USING THE PRODUCTS AT THE FIRST SIGN OF A COLD, SORE THROAT OR CONGESTION, so we recommend keeping the RESPIRATORY BALANCE Package on-hand in your medicine cabinet for immediate use when needed.
