Whether you are being bothered by chest or sinus congestion, asthma, or cough, mullein leaf is the herb to use.
Mullein is excellent for helping to loosen and expel thick, hardened mucus from the lungs, bronchial tubes, and respiratory tract. It has also been effectively used in cases of bleeding of the lungs/tuberculosis.
We use mullein in our Respiratory Tea just for that reason. Respiratory Tea contains plants that have been used for thousands of years for the purpose of promoting a healthy and balanced respiration. This blend aids in removing congestion and mucus from the lungs and bronchial tubes by cleansing, toning, rejuvenating, strengthening, and nourishing the entire respiratory system. Also in this tea are horehound, irish moss, and eucalyptus.
Horehound assists in the relief of asthma, chronic sore throat, coughs, and pulmonary infections. Irish moss has a soothing effect on the mucous membranes throughout the body. It helps relieve many respiratory problems, including bronchitis and pneumonia. Eucalyptus assists in overcoming the symptoms of the common cold. It helps loosen coughs and is also used for alleviating issues with respiratory tract infections, whooping cough, asthma, and pulmonary tuberculosis.
All of these herbs mentioned are available in any amount you need at our store at 1942 W Montrose Ave.
This article would be remiss without mentioning that mucus and inflammation stems from too much acid in the body. After (or simultaneously while) you consume the herbs, there are other things you can do to make respiratory issues a problem of the past, things like doing a juice cleanse and then subsequently eating a raw diet (or at least a vegan diet). Meat and animal by-product are very acidic and create mucus and inflammation in the body. The more raw you consume, the more alkaline the body will become. In an alkaline environment disease and bacteria cannot thrive.
Say no to bacteria and disease and say yes to alkaline foods.
