109 Comments for the Mucus and Congestion Home Remedy


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.

Can you substitute the ACV for something else..I dont have any and am too sick to head out!

What am I doing wrong? I tried this 3 times and nothing came out although I can feel the mucus in the back of my throat.


Ughhhh i soooo wish i would've came across this a couple hours ago before i used the last of my apple cider vinegar to clean out my humidifier thats been running nonstop the last two weeks. I can't wait for the stores to open in a few hours....


Ok here is my question, this is quite a bit of acv. So do I gargle the whole cup little by little? Then spit it out, or swallow it? And for each gargle do I hold my head down for three minutes each time?
I tried to do this method and for me to rub my tounge on the roof of my mouth I have to have very minimal apple cider vinegar and water mix in my mouth or I will swallow it will rubbing the top of my mouth, has anybody else have this problem?

I read about this remedy on another website but the recipe is slightly different. The ACV it used was unpasteurized. Does it matter? And can we get unpasteurized ACV?


Rotting teeth is what I got even after brushing. Probably had too much in my mouth. Can see the potential though!


I think I am doing it wrong. I have my head upside down and I am pressing my tongue as much as I can. I can feel the phlegm but nothing comes to my mouth, it is stuck there i guess. I have only done the part of the apple you think that it havent worked because i haven't done the 1st part? I dont know where to find the silver biotics, can I use something else? Please help.

It really helped me get some phlegm out. I've always struggled with phlegm, sick or not. What I also did during the process was turn on the shower. (Hot water only) And let the water run so I could breathe in the steam and that helped loosen the phlegm a lot too along with the vinegar n water

Hey I have been having this problem with mucus in my throat for several weeks. A couple of times it got so bad that I choked and had stoped breathing for more than a minute. I tried this remedy after several visits to doctors and I am very happy to say that most of the mucus came out. I cannot thank you enough for posting this remedy. I will be sure to pass it along.
