List of Health Conditions from A to Z

Bronchial, Bronchitis explained in Layman's anatomy which is in easy understood terms, easy to reference, Including herbs, nutrition, lifestyle suggestions. Bronchitis, Asthma, Lung,


SYSTEM: Respiratory


NUMBER: Two branches

SHAPE: They are like up side down trees (see page Bronchials-4)

SIZE: They run from the wind pipe into and throughout the lung.

LOCATION: The BRONCHUS Y's from the wind pipe to each lung.  The BRONCHIAL branch out like branches of a tree (up side down).    BRONCHIOLES  are twig like protrusions from the bronchial which have aveoles or air sacs on the end where oxygenation takes place. (see  page Bronchial-4)

FUNCTION: Intake oxygen and expel waste, acid and carbon dioxide.  There are also hair like growths to help filter air to protect the lungs.

KINESIOLOGY:  None can be found specifically for the bronchial but we assume that it would be the same for lungs which is on both sides of the area 1 inch below outer 3rd of collarbone. (see page bronchials-5)

IRIDOLOGY: Bronchus - In both eyes.  Right eye at 2:00-3:30. Left eye at 8:30 - 10:00.  Bronchial - In both eyes. Right eye 8:05 - 9:55. Left eye 2:05 - 3:55 (see page bronchials-6).  Also a white haze indicates catarrh, acid and mucus.

REFLEXOLOGY: Both feet on the ball of the foot down from the gap between the large toe and the toe next to it (see page bronchials-7)

HELPS TO IMPROVE FUNCTION: Vitamin C, deep breathing and healthy medulla oblongata

DETRIMENTAL TO ITS HEALTH:  Smoking, cold or polluted air, milk products (milk, cheese, ice cream and yogurt).  Acid forming foods. Talc powder, sprays and other impurities that are inadvertently breathed in.

POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS/HEALTH CONDITIONS:  Bronchitis, hacking, stubborn cough with varying amounts of sputum being expectorated.

Bronchial pneumonia - Infection of the bronchial

Bronchiectasis - Chronic dilation of bronchial.

Emphysema- Lung condition with marked loss of elasticity of bronchiole and alveoli, making it difficult to cough and clean out lungs and air passages.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:  The medulla oblongata is part of the brain/spinal cord which stimulates the diaphragm muscle (which lies between the lungs and stomach) to expand.  The diaphragm is a muscle in the chest area that when expanded causes a vacuum in the chest cavity which causes air to fill the lungs.  It is best to breathe through your nose because there are little hairs which help filter out impurities.

750 ML - Lung capacity

500 ML - What an average person breathes in and out


250 ML - 1/3 lung capacity which contains dead air.

Deep breathing exercises helps expel this dead air. Slowly inhale through the nose to the count of 8, hold to count of ten, forcefully blow air out through mouth for the count of 10. (Caution, might make you light headed).

Cold suppressants don't rid the body of mucus they just thicken it so it doesn't run.  In this thick mucus are bacteria, virus and impurities which can then attack the respiratory system.

The focus of this site is to "educate, validate, and suggest alternative methods for the treatment of health conditions," which are not readily available to those who go through mainstream programs.
