Broader Context of Treatment
Much of the information given for acute bronchitis is relevant for chronic bronchitis as well. Smokers are still more likely to die from chronic bronchitis than from lung cancer, and to give up smoking is the first and most important preventive measure. The other is to improve the level of nutrition, and particularly to cut out or greatly reduce those foods which encourage the production of mucus. These are, for most people, dairy products and refined starches. Of the two, dairy products seem to be the worst culprits, and cutting them right out of the diet for a time - maybe several weeks, or months if the bronchitis is of long standing - will often bring about an improvement. After that, cheese, milk, etc., may be cautiously reintroduced but in very small amounts only. For some people, it may be necessary to omit them from the diet permanently.

Goats milk is often found to be less mucus-forming than cows milk. Starches also provoke excessive mucus production, and refined starches (white flour and all products made from it) are far worse than unrefined grains. Additives, such as chemical flavorings, colorings and preservatives often trigger mucus excess as well, and should be avoided. The best and simplest rule is to eat foods in a state as near as possible to that in which they were grown, i.e., not processed, dried, frozen, packaged or pre-cooked, and as often as possible eat them raw or very lightly cooked.
