Dr. Tho Cowan writes: "It is interesting to me that the nature of the mucus, whether green, brown or clear, is not a reflection of a certain type of infection, as we are taught, but actually tells us about the nature of that which we are flushing out (detoxifying)."

  • Green Mucus – If it is toxic chemicals, the mucus is "nasty" and green, and it will taste and smell bad causing bad breath.
  • Yellow, Brown, and Other Mucus Colors – Mucus can be many different colors, depending up the kind of toxins being flushed out.
  • Clear Mucus – If your body is flushing out more harmless stuff like pollen or cat hair, then the mucus is clear.
