Phlegm is that thick mucus-like gel or slime produced by the mucous membranes, and like mucus, phlegm comes out by coughing through the respiratory passages: lungs, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, or the diaphragm. It is gross and disgusting, I want to vomit anytime I see or think of phlegm.
The color of phlegm varies from a water-like color, which is clear, yellow, brown, dark grey, green, or pale depending on what foods that were consumed. There are those who think that the color of your phlegm indicates the meaning of your health, but there isn’t enough research to back that claim. Phlegm will take the color of whatever food that was consumed, so the color will vary... Phlegm and mucus are similar in look, but they do differ, one is much more a health hazard to the body as you will soon find out.
What is mucus?
Mucus is a gel-like liquid produced by the mucous membranes; it is a thick slippery liquid made in an abundance of water and glycoproteins by cells located in mucous glands.
Difference between phlegm and mucus:
Mucus and phlegm are not the same even though most people consider them as one. Let me explain, mucus is produced by the body naturally as a defense mechanism. For example, mucus traps bacteria from entering the body. But if you overeat bad unnatural foods that cause the body to produce excessive mucus, then you will have a problem because the cells and organs are going to be deprived of oxygen.
Phlegm carries disease:
Phlegm, on the other hand, is very hard to get out of the body. When the body has phlegm, it is likely that it's a disease because phlegm is disease tolerant and is present when there is a disease first, not after, in the body. When phlegm comes out within your body it will have mucus in it, but it will also include bacteria, engulf or crumble cells and viruses as well. Phlegm is more problematic to your body (Dr. Sebi).
Dr. sebi, the relation between food and disease: mucus is the cause of every disease.
We want to know what is disease because if we do not know the causes of disease, then it would be impossible for us to zero in on a meaningful cure or any cure at all. What is a disease, the doctors never told us and we kept going back to them? The question should have been answered by th anthropologists and the archeologist. Why wait for the healer to come because if we are diseased, we are unaware as to the cause of our disease, then whatever comes after that means nothing because our bodies are sick ( Dr. Sebi, 2013). Dr. Sebi said constant mucus is the cause of every disease.The disease is when you have ingested a substance that was uncomplimentary with your genetic structure. Mucus is the cause of all diseases.
The disease is the accumulation of mucus; breaking down the mucous membrane, and that mucous covering groups of cells in your body. For example, we have the mucous membrane in the body to protect us from the onslaught of aerobic bacteria—nonetheless, the mucous membrane is for protection of the body.
Mucus and phlegm cause diseases:
We eat acid foods and the acid food breaks down the mucous membrane and cause mucus to flow with the blood covering other groups of cells that belong to organs, and depriving them of oxygen. If the mucus goes to your nostrils, they called it sinusitis; if the mucus goes to your bronchial tube, they called it bronchitis; if the mucus goes to the lungs, they called it pneumonia. Mucus in your eyes will also cause vision problems (Dr. Sebi).
So, you have three different diseases caused by mucus. So, what about when the mucus goes to the prostate gland, its prostatitis. When the mucus goes to the uterus of a woman, they called it endometriosis or vaginal discharge or yeast infection. So, we have this mucus situation, which produces all of those diseases caused by an inadequate diet. Mucus is the underline cause of all diseases.
Phlegm after eating
Phlegm happens daily, the aftermath of coughing up Phlegm after eating; the result of consuming acidic foods. If you did not understand the reason you are producing so much phlegm after eating; it is because of the foods. Processed food that the body does not recognize can weaken the mucous membrane and create excessive phlegm.
If after eating you start producing a lot of phlegm, you may want to refrain from eating that food; it is a warning from your body that such food is unhealthy for you. Producing excessive phlegm will deprive your body of oxygen and may get to other parts of your internal body organs, consequently, manifest other diseases throughout the body.
Constant mucus in throat symptoms:
The results of eating acidic foods that are not complementary to your body's biological structure produce the mucus. The more you continue to eat that unnatural food, the more mucus your body will produce. Excessive mucus in your lungs will result in mucus in your throat. Throat mucus symptoms are sticky wet slime, which is difficult to get rid of from the back of the throat; throats mucus is usually accompanied by coughing up phlegm after eating.
Some people find temporary relief by gargling salty water in their throats, but a dietary change is needed to stop the body from producing excessive mucus. If dietary changes are not taken, every time the acidic unnatural foods are consumed, your body will react by producing excessive phlegm after eating. Mucus will overwhelm the lungs and the throat and wherever you find excessive mucus in the body, you will give way for diseases to manifest.
Natural remedies to clear mucus:
Changing your diet is the most important thing you can do to help your body from producing excess phlegm and mucus.
