Best Homeopathic medicines for bronchitis

A common problem affecting a large number of people is bronchitis. Here we shall be outlining the various homeopathic medicines for bronchitis. Before we give the various homeopathic medicines for bronchitis and their symptoms, we need to understand a little bit more about bronchitis.

What is Bronchitis

Bronchitis is the inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes present in the lungs. The inflammation may occur due to a bacterial or a viral infection or even due to some allergy. As the mucous membranes get irritated due to the inflammation, there is swelling. This swelling can cause narrowing of the airways. This narrowing causes difficulty in breathing. At the same time, due to the inflammation, a lot of mucous is produced. The narrow airways are unable to wash off the mucous causing mucous to collect within the lungs.

Types of Bronchitis

Bronchitis may be classified into two types-acute or chronic. This classification is based on the duration of the presence of symptoms. Bronchitis is called acute when it is present only for a short period of time. Acute bronchitis recovers within a few days. Bronchitis is called chronic when it is present most of the time in a year or prevails for a long time.

Reasons for Bronchitis

The most common reason for the prevalence of chronic bronchitis is the irritation of the bronchioles in the lungs due to smoke or pollution. Smoking is the most common reason for the prevalence of chronic bronchitis. It is a widely occurring problem and often underestimated. This smoke may be due to smoking or just being close to a smoker.  In fact a passive smoker is harmed more than an active smoker if the duration of exposure is the same in both cases. Most of the regular smokers have chronic bronchitis, though the degree of the problem may vary from person to person. Pollution in the cities or industries is another reason for chronic bronchitis.

Bronchitis Symptoms

  • Cough and production of mucous or sputum are the two most common symptoms of bronchitis.
  • Due to excess production of mucous within the bronchial tubes, the cough reflex is induced in a bid to get rid of the mucous. The mucous is usually whitish in colour.
  • Often patients feel shortness of breath. This shortness of breath is aggravated on any physical activity like walking, running or climbing stairs.
  • There may be wheezing in the chest while breathing. A sensation of tightness or heaviness in the chest may be felt.
  • Exercising or running or climbing stairs is often difficult as the compromised lungs are unable to meet the increased requirements of oxygen.

Homeopathic treatment of Bronchitis

When it comes to treating bronchitis, Homeopathy is very effective. In fact it is the most promising system of medicine for the treatment of bronchitis. Here one must mention that the preventable or avoidable causes of bronchitis should be and must be removed. It is very important that one should stop smoking if the patient is suffering from bronchitis. Any sort of pollution should also be avoided. In homeopathy, I have seen pretty severe cases of bronchitis getting cured.

5 best Homeopathic medicines for Bronchitis

Homeopathy works well in both acute and chronic bronchitis. In my personal experience, I have found some remedies to be more commonly indicated and more effective.

Here are the 5 best Homeopathic remedies for Bronchitis-

  • Arsenic Album- best homeopathic medicine for bronchitis with weakness

  • Bryonia – best homeopathic remedy for bronchitis with great thirst

  • Pulsatilla – best medicine for chronic bronchitis with greenish expectoration

  • Antim Tart –  best medicine for chronic bronchitis with rattling in chest

  • Hepar Sulph – best homeopathy treatment for bronchitis with increased sensitivity to cold


The brief indications of these medicines are also being given for the benefit of patients. But a word of caution is necessary. It is better to seek the expert opinion of an experienced homeopathic doctor for the treatment of chronic bronchitis and not resort to self medication.

1. Arsenic Album-One of the best Homeopathic medicines for Bronchitis with weakness

When there is weakness along with other symptoms of bronchitis, Arsenic Album is one of the best homeopathic medicines for bronchitis. It is the most frequently indicated and also the most effective medicine. There is extreme weakness along with the symptoms of bronchitis. Restlesness is also marked. The patient feels thirsty and drinks lot of water, though a little at a time. The cough is increased after midnight. Wheezing is present.

2. Bryonia- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for Bronchitis with great thirst

In cases where there is thirst for large quantities of water and patient drinks a lot of water at one time, Bryonia is often the best homeopathic medicine for bronchitis. There is intense dryness of mucous membranes and in the mouth. The cough is also dry. There is pain in the chest and head while coughing. Pain as if stitching in the chest. Cough is excited on going into a warm room.

3. Pulsatilla- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for Bronchitis with greenish expectoration

In cases where there is expectoration of a lot of greenish or yellowish mucous, Pulsatilla is one of the best Homeopathic medicines for bronchitis. The patient is usually thirstless. The cough is worse while lying down and is forced to sit up. The cough is dry in the evening and night while it is loose in the morning. The patient feels better in the open air. The patient is usually mild in nature and disposition. In females, it is often seen that such females tend to cry very easily and feel better after being consoled.

4. Antim Tart- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for Bronchitis with rattling

When there is lot of rattling of mucous in chest, Antim Tart is one of the best homeopathic medicines for bronchitis. Although there is lot of mucous in the chest, little is expectorated. Patient finds it quite difficult to bring up the mucous. Cough is aggravated by eating. Cough and difficulty in breathing is better by lying on the right side. This medicines works much better in old patients and infants.

5. Hepar Sulph- One of the best Homeopathic medicines for Bronchitis with increased sensitivity to cold

When there is increased sensitivity to cold air or cold temperature, Hepar Sulph is one of the best homeopathic medicines for bronchitis. Cold air and exposure to cold in any form cannot be tolerated. It excites cough immediately. Even if a part of the body like a hand gets exposed to cold, cough starts. There is rattling and wheezing. Cough is worse in the morning.
