Congrats on this beautiful finalist Carol. Check out Slippery Elm for bronchitis at your health food store. It's natural and a food (from the elm tree) and the indians used it to treat bronchitis.You would want to take it a couple of hours before your meds. It soothes everything and helps a lot! Check it out on the internet. Hope your better soon! #7867419
