Lifestyle Changes to Avoid Bronchitis:
- Consumption of plenty of fruits and veggies that provide essential vitamins and minerals but don’t produce mucus.
- The usual dairy, fried and sugar-based foods should be avoided because they trigger mucus-production in our body.
- Consumption of plenty of water (a glass – every 2 hours) can dilute the mucus inside the bronchial tubes. As a result, the cough is reduced and you can breathe easy.
- Avoid active and passive smoking, completely. Studies have it that the current smokers have a higher degree of bronchitis that those who have never smoked. Keeping away from even the other lung irritants like dust, fumes, vapors and air pollution also works.
