Phlegm can become a serious challenge if a person does not
know about several crucial rules and causes of excessive mucus production. The
organs of the respiratory tract (the throat, chest or lungs) and digestive system, as well as other body
organs, produce a thin layer of mucus that serves many useful functions. The
problem appears when the body produces too much mucus and this mucus becomes too
viscous, providing a shelter for pathogens. This effect takes place in people
with a sore throat, asthma, cystic fibrosis, bronchitis, and many other
conditions. Here is your master plan to rid the body of excess phlegm naturally.
This home remedy was developed and
used by over 150 Soviet and Russian MDs. They have successfully applied this medical
treatment on thousands of their patients to get rid of existing mucus, reduce coughing and cure their sore throats.
Breathing Treatment (Getting Rid of Mucus)
First, begin by relaxing all your muscles, then after your usual exhalation (outhale), pinch your nose and hold your breath until you experience some discomfort. Bear in mind that you
need to breathe only through the nose after this breath hold.
When you release the nose after this period of breath holding, instead of taking a large inhalation (which youÂ should not do if you have a sore throat),
take a smaller inhalation using the diaphragm and/or abdominal (stomach) muscles, and then immediately
relax all your muscles. Take another (smaller) inhalation using the abdomen (not
chest) and again completely relax.
each breath, inhale only a small amount of air (about 20-30% less than your usual
breathing). Make these inhalations only through the nose while using the abdominal
muscles and keeping chest muscles calm. Then completely relax all your muscles.
Your goal is to maintain a
shortage of air (or an air hunger) for the next 2-3 minutes. This breathing technique
helps you to stop or eliminate phlegm naturally nearly 2-10 times faster than doing nothing or using conventional
Too much mucus due to allergies or inflammation may require a longer period of breathing retraining.
The goal is to change your automatic
breathing pattern, and make it slower and lighter (for higher-body oxygenation).
Conventional medicine and many respirologists teach their patients with
phlegm in the throat or lungs to forcefully exhale or cough phlegm out through the mouth. In other words, most doctors teach
forceful hyperventilation, which
makes the problem with phlegm production worse. Overbreathing causes CO2 losses, body-oxygen losses,
suppression of the immune system and irritation of airways leading to more problems with a sore throat.
You need to learn how to practice reduced breathing with air hunger in
order to provide more O2 to tiny cilia cells. These cells will be able to
move phlegm from the chest and throat towards the mouth only if they have enough oxygen. Then you can
gently dislodge the phlegm and spit it out.
Russian medical doctors practicing the Buteyko breathing method suggest
that all coughing (if you get bouts of coughing) should be done through the nose, while mucus
should be gently removed when it comes out naturally and is located inside
the mouth (not chest or throat). The most effective methods to encourage airway clearance are:
breathing exercise explained above
- and easy physical activity with strictly-nasal breathing (in and out).
These factors lead to higher levels of alveolar
CO2. Increased CO2 improves oxygenation and perfusion of hypoxic cilia cells
naturally leading to restoration of their primary functions which is to move sputum upwards towards the mouth naturally. Furthermore,
this approach does not cause a production of too much sputum due to the adverse effects
How to get rid of your mucus forever (phlegm cure)
For many people, the above exercise only helps to get rid of the existing
phlegm. Here are the specific steps to solve this problem completely.
- Practice this reduced breathing exercise nearly all the time (but not
after meals or when you have solid food in your stomach)
- Avoid allergic triggers, which causes mucus production (dust, pollen, cat
proteins, and so on)
- Avoid mucus-causing foods (primarily dairy; but also meat and fish,
gluten products, etc.) ...
For many people, the above exercise and steps only help to get rid of the existing
phlegm. However, there is one special goal and criterion to solve this mucus
problem completely. This step will be

Use electrical grounding of the body if you have inflammation and/or
numerous allergies causing too much mucus and excessive clear phlegm. In many cases, just Earthing
alone helps to get rid of one's phlegm or will help to have much less mucus.
