Mix a 1/4 tsp sea salt in 1/8 cup water warm enough to disolve the salt. Tilt your head back and using a dropper or nose syringe drop a half dropper full of the salt water into each nostril. Allow salt water to run back out. Repeat two to three times a day as needed.

For throat mucus gargle with the same salt water mixture.

Radish Works Great! Take one red radish, chopped up, dressed with lemon juice, each morning on empty stomach. Google nutritional benefits of Radish to learn it clears the respiratory tract. Avoid peanut, too much dairy (milk, yogurt) and chocolate till the yucky stuff clears up.

When you have yellow mucus (infection) what works for me in Oil of Oregano. It is a natural antibiotic and it works wonders especially for upper respiratory infection. If you happen to go on a pharmaceutical antibiotic, the yeast infection you get from them can also be cured by the Oil of Oregano. I get mine from Wholefoods market.

When you have mucus/phlegm in the throat due to post nasal drip, get some Silver Biotics (it is the only colloidal silver that really works for me) and make a nasal pray with this solution.

Don't add anything, just spray your nose 3 times daily, 2 spray in each nostril. It will fix the post nasal drip and allow the mucus to get out your nose.

THEN move on to the mucus and phlegm in the throat, here is an INSTANT remedy that will work 100%, all the time and it took me a minute to find this one.

1 - Get some Apple Cider Vinegar and mix it with 1/3 Apple Cider Vinegar, 2/3 cold water

2 - Do a gargle then bend over and stay in this position for as long as you can (minimum 3 minutes). Try to bend over and hold your feet.

3 - While bending, press your tongue against the roof of your mouth every 2 to 3 seconds.

What will happen is that:

a) The mucus/phlegm will attached itself to the mixture as Apple Cider Vinegar acts like a sponge.

b) The gravity will let the mucus/phlegm in your throat to fall in your mouth.

You will feel it falling inside your mouth and when you do, please do not stop because there are usually a lot more coming up.

So continue and each treatment should be at least 3 good gargles. You can do that as often as you like until the mucus/phlegm is completely removed. You can end your session by sucking on honey or drops to soothe your throat.

And VOILA!

I had a severe case of mucus. I couldn't sleep for 4 days. Every time i tried, I awoke smothered by the stuff. I was constantly clearing my throat. I did some research. I took 2 tablespoons of turmeric along with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in tea. Take it every hour. I got relief in about 8 hours. It completely cured it. Turmeric is a miracle. Google it for further info. It really worked. I was surprised.

Got post nasal drip? The best remedy is: Boil 1 cup of water and add about a tablespoon of honey, along with a tablespoon of 100% lemon juice. Stir until honey is dissolved. Drink when it cools down enough for you to tolerate but while still warm. Drink as many as needed per day. Along with that, drink plenty of water every day.
