What Causes Mucus?

When our health declines, we are ill or we have irritants that enter the body, mucus or phlegm is produced in small or large amounts depending on the severity and the immunoglobulins (antibodies produced by your immune system) work hard to fight off these irritants.

This mucus gets expelled through coughing along with dead immune cells, the virus and/or bacteria it is fighting. It can be very bothersome to be constantly coughing but it is an indication that your body is doing its job, that it is fighting off the invaders or foreign elements. It is trying to clear the lung, nose or throat area after trapping the invaders into the mucus. Similar to a spider web that traps insects, the mucus traps the irritants or bacteria and then by coughing the body expells that mucus with all it has trapped out of the body.

When there is a very large amount of mucus or phlegm it is usually caused by a virus or bacteria infection like Influenza, Bronchitis or Pneumonia or severe irritants like chemicals, cigarette smoke. Yellowish or greenish mucus usually indicates an infection of some sort. It is a good idea to consult a doctor in this case.

The traditional treatment for a bacteria infection is antibiotics, and it often becomes necessary to take antibiotics when the condition has progressed to a point where the body can not handle the situation, but by taking antibiotics the natural balance of the body or the normal flora that exists in the intestinal tract gets disrupted, and it may result in damage to the mucus membranes. This may lead to a condition called “Candida”. After taking antibiotics it becomes important to rebuild this flora. I carry very good products for this and by testing my client I can determine how much is needed, if at all.

FOOD SENSITIVITIES

Aside from the usual irritants, many don’t realize that foods can act as an irritant when an individual develops a sensitivity to a specific food. Due to the fact that, nowadays, most of our food is processed and we are now dealing with more and more Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO), meaning that the food’s genes were altered to withstand certain pesticides, increase the size or properties of it, more and more people are becoming sensitive to certain categories of foods.

The MOST popular categories are:

MILK – GRAINS & SUGARS

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Avoid the above categories of food. Eating pineapple, oranges, grapefruits, and lemon have been shown to have beneficial effects. For veggies; asparagus, onions, cauliflower, celery and garlic can help eliminate mucus.

Drink lots of water, if you’re dehydrated your phlegm will thicken

Why Detox?

Taken from Dr Schulze’s Special Report

“You wouldn’t drive your car 100,000 miles and never change the oil or filter. Flushing and cleaning your liver and gallbladder PREVENTS DISEASE and helps you LIVE LONGER!”

PICK ONE: HEALTH Management or DISEASE Management…..

The TRUTH is you will be choosing one of these options, whether you want to pick one or not. If you do nothing, well, then like many americans, you will wait until your machine breaks, and then be forced into making some emergency decision to have a life-altering medical intervention. This medical treatment WILL NOT heal your disease, it will just prolong your disease, and you will start to rot, feeling worse and worse.

Nobody seeking medical treatment for Diabetes, Heart Disease, Alzheimer’s, Arthritis, Cancer or anything is getting cured; they are becoming drug addicts to stay alive. This isn’t health my friends, this is MANAGING DISEASE with DRUGS.

My OPTION is to take a few days each year and do some house cleaning, do a DETOX, and MANAGE your HEALTH, and GET HEALTHY, PREVENTING DISEASE in the first place.

Did you Know?

Did you know that the numerical value used or the cutoffs that are used to determine if you have a condition that needs treatment is set by expert panels of physicians but without any scientific processes. They are more haphazard than that: they involve value judgments, and financial interests. So as a result for example, the level of cholesterol that was acceptable was up to 240. That equalled about 10% of the population diagnosed with the condition. When the value was reduced to 200, the people that were between 200 and 240 which would have been in a normal range previously were now diagnosed as having high cholesterol and it brought the percentage to 30% of the population diagnosed with the condition needing treatment. That’s a significant increase and just like that you have 3 times the number of patients. The lower you set the cutoffs the more people it will include because it labels the less severe conditions that might never become a problem which are a lot more frequent. This leads to over diagnosis.

Over diagnosis is a relatively new problem in medicine. In the past, people didn’t go to the doctor when they were well – they tended to wait until they developed symptoms. Furthermore, doctors didn’t encourage the healthy to seek care. The net result was that doctors made fewer diagnoses than they do now. But the paradigm has changed. Early diagnosis is the goal. People seek care when they are well. Doctors try to detect disease earlier.

Over diagnosis began with the diagnosis and treatment of a common condition – hypertension or high blood pressure. Detecting and treating high blood pressure is one of the most important things doctors do. But it’s also true that they do too much of it. Some people are diagnosed and treated needlessly – they are over diagnosed. It is the first condition that started being diagnosed in people without symptoms. Prior to the late 20th century, doctors generally prescribed medicines only to patients with symptoms of disease. But hypertension changed that. Suddenly people with no health complaints – who perceived no health problems – were being given a diagnosis and prescribed treatment. This provided the opportunity to prevent symptomatic disease in some, but at the cost of making the diagnosis in others who were not destined ever to develop symptoms or die from hypertension. In other words, at the cost of over diagnosis.

Hypertension is defined by a numerical rule. If your blood pressure is above a certain number, you have hypertension. If it isn’t above that number, you don’t. You can be labeled simply because you are on the wrong side of a number, not because you have any symptoms. If a doctor is asked what is normal blood pressure, typically the answer will be 120/80 but doctors see blood pressures higher than this all the time. The question is; At what level is blood pressure abnormal? Most doctors would agree that a pressure of 160/90 is abnormally high. And we all would agree that 202/117 is really high, in fact really, really high. The benefit of treating very high blood pressure is great. But hypertension varies in degrees of severity, from almost normal blood pressure to very high. And the benefit of treatment is affected by the degree of hypertension.

So what? If there’s any chance of benefit, why not take the medication, right? One reason is money. Some people have to spend a lot of their income on medications. Another is some harm associated with treatment. There are downsides to being treated for hypertension, some more serious then others. Some medicine can cause fatigue, others can cause cough, others can impair sex drive. All of them can make your blood level too low, leading to light-headedness, fainting and falls. For the elderly major falls can be the start of a chain of events that lead to death. The balance between the potential benefit of treatment and the risk of over diagnosis is closely related to where a person falls on the abnormality spectrum – in other words, how high his or her blood pressure is – and how aggressively we choose to lower it……
