Coughing up white phlegm page 2 – ear, nose and throat disorders forum – ehealthforum fluid in ears allergies

I can shed some light on most posts i’m sure – 2 years ago i looked these symptoms up as I had be coughing for 6 months i changed doctors and tried everything – my xray was clear and my lungs sounded fine – the doctors blundered their way through the diagnosis steps – it seams a little along the lines of diagnosing ibs – try to test for everything if nothing else works it must be ….

The steps the doctor must take are as follows – 1. have you been coughing liquid for more than 3 weeks, when you are otherwise normally healthy – yes – try antibiotics – we will try a few different ones to make sure you will need to revisit at the end of each course if there is no marked improvement in your symptoms – xray the chest to check that it clear – clear then try antihistamine course – make sure to return if this does not work – next step an inhaler – make sure to ask for a spacer as a non-ashmatic with a persistent cough you maybe prescribed either just the blue vetolin or the brown inhaler also – the brown inhaler will reduce swelling and aid in reducing the mucus.


The blue inhaler will help the lungs to open up and take more oxygen – I find this gives a more productive cough – makes ure if you do not have a spacer (a cone/tube for taking the inhaler without needing much training – slows ur breathing down and prevents against oral yeast) to use a good mouth wash and rinse after every time you use the inhaler. If the cough persists for more than a week on the inhaler go back to your gp and see if there is another form of medication you can take and to check you are inhaling the medication correctly. Also I suggest making sure any dust, chemicals (i.e cleaning bleach), cooking fumes form grilling ect are all kept to a minimum as they will aggravate the chest more.

Most of all guys please bear in mind that it is your responsiblity to make appointments and be prompt never think that your doctor is not listening to you – therefore it means u you are being silly. This is a very common issue with a lot of coughs that last more than 3 weeks regardless of what you are producing and what colour it is. If you are ever disastisfied go back to the gp or ask for a second opinion.

A helpful way to assist your healing from White Phlegm, is to change your treatment. 70% of your healing comes from your gut. Get a probiotic that will have 50 Billion active cultures by capsule with at least 10 probiotic strains along with enteric-guard delayed release capsules with potency guaranteed until expiration OR get what I use Ultimate Flora Critical Care 50 Billion made by RENEW LIFE company. That is your first step. You can obtain them at a health food store. If not near you – you can do a search on the internet. One per day for 2 weeks and ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE ON ANTIBIOTICS. You may have a URI or Upper Respiratory Infection (Cold). Sinuses may be draining into your lungs so you continue to cough and cough up phlegm. Hot compresses on your sinuses in the am and/or pm may help to drain them. Next take 2 organic oranges, remove skin, and blend in a blender and drink once in the am and once in the pm for 3 days in a row and eliminate white processed sugar and breads from your diet for 3 days. Increase organic vegetables and fruits. Also, see a Maximized Living Chiropractor as your neck may be blocking the nerves to your lungs and if your lungs aren’t getting the correct messages back to the brain there is interference and your body can not heal correctly. After working in the medical field for a long time, I have seen doctors getting kick-backs from the pharmaceticals companies. I am a 59 and take NO medications. I have had problems and have cured them with natural remedies. I never believed in Chiropractors a long time ago and now some doctors are beginning to recognize their wisdom. Such as Dr. OZ on TV. Switch all of your food to ORGANIC and cut down on White Breads and sugar and cows milk. White Sugar is not good for the body. Substituting Stevia or Agave is better. Hope this helps – if you are still having a problem after a few weeks seek professional medical advise.

I have had the same problem for two years, I cough up white phlegm every am, I was told it was alleries,sometimes when I take 500mg of vitaminC IT HELPS,better to eat any citrus fruit that has alot of vitamin c,did you know that a red pepper has more vitamin C in it than an orange!white phlegm is a sign that your body is telling you something,when you have a cold,flu,or have a serious lung infection,the lining of the lungs will heal and you will cough it up,same thing with your sinuses,sinuses may be clogged and can’t drain properly,it is good idea to have xrays of the sinuses,could be alot of fluid or muscus that can’t escape and need to be drained by ENT specialist,same thing with the lungs,when it hurts to cough,could be a sign that you have fluid on the lungs and around the heart,if so you need to see a lung and heart specialist,always good to have your blood work done to rule out any other nasty viruses!!!an overproduction of candila can be in the nose,throat, and lungs,so ask your Dr to do sputum culture to see if this is actually is caused by an overgrowth of fungus which thrives on any moist environment and sugar!!! you can also see a physical therapist to help loosen the fluid in the lungs,they will show you how a friend can hit the palm of their hands against the back done three times a day to get muscus/fluid out of your lungs,this is done by slightly hitting areas of the back while you lie on a pillow with your head lowerned,have the person hit on your side and all around the lung area.be careful to not apply too much force or to hurt the person,think about it while you lie down,fluid moves up from your lungs while you sleep,when you awake you start coughing,eat a well balanced diet,lots of water,and exercise will help also,a hot shower or using the steam room at a gym will unclog your sinuses too!
