Sweet tasting sputum
    #14394007 - 05/03/11 01:36 PM (4 years, 21 days ago)

So I started getting sick last night.
I noticed that the sputum coming out of my lung and lower respiratory system were tasting very sweet.

This seemed odd to me, because I'm used to my sputum and phlegm being more salty like typical.

Does the presence of sweet sputum indicate anything?

I was reading about some forms of bacteria that apparently can turn sputum sweet.

It's definitely an indicator that your phlegm is now host to some new friends. I would start gravitating towards pro-health and pro-immunity behavior early before an infection sets in (or worsens).

What specifically would you recommend?

Hot salt-water gargles will help to clear the tonsils specifically. Oral zinc supplements are pro-immunity, and in general just avoid alcohol and cigarettes, drink plenty of water, eat whole foods, and get enough sleep. This is guaranteed to at least cut your sick time in half, if not prevent it. I can usually tell when I'm nearing a respiratory track infection because it hurts when I swallow.

I usually take some generic Mucinex (DM if I have a cough) to help expectorate all the crap from my lungs. This should help too.

I, too, can usually feel when I have a case of bronchitis coming on-- hurts when I swallow, coughing.

Yeah I can usually feel my lymph nodes in my mouth swelling up from hyperactivity, and it also becomes sore to swallow.

So far I've spent the entire day in bed, drinking water.

I'm getting restless though so I'm probably gonna do some easy things around my house to keep me busy.

I think I'm gonna take some mucinex, take a hot shower and maybe smoke a small amount of mullein.

It does work pretty well. I enjoy it.
It has more instant results than most medicines.
As in I'll take a hit, and almost immediately cough up some fat chunks.

I'm interested to see how it works combined with guaifenesen and DXM.

I do lots of foraying, so all my mullein is hand collected by myself.

I collect the leaf, the root, and the flower.


I use the leaf for smoking blends.
I use the flower for a light tea.
And I use the root for a tincture, or tea if I'm in a hurry.

I also sometimes will keep the stalk and heat treat them, in order to straighten them out.
When dried and stripped, you can use it as a hand spindle for starting fires.
