Cough Yellow mucous: When your cilia in the nose/sinuses fail to move bactera away, they mutiply and cause infection i.e. yellow mucus
When the chest cilia fail, cough takes over. You need to get your cilia moving.
Increase fluid intake
Drink green tea
Drink lemon and lime juice
Use pulsating nasal/sinus irrigation designed to restore nasal cilia. see www.grossaninstitute.com
