At the time, I received a relatively desperate request from a patient with chronic upper airway inflammation, which doctors could not cure. That made me study which specific herbs could act on upper respiratory tract infections.
Herbs with an effect on upper respiratory tract infections
The patient, of course, wanted to help with his own problem, but I did not know if it was a viral or bacterial inflammation. It is not well enough to prescribe the treatment remotely, and so, according to Dr. Duke's recommendation, I intuitively compiled an approximate list of medicinal plants that can be tested for an unspecified chronic airway infection. Given the unspecified nature of the disease, I recommend using a combination of several different antiviral and antibacterial herbs from the list, because it is easier to get the antibiotic effect on microbes. Due to the need for an impact dose (attempting to destroy as many microbes as possible at the start of antibiotic treatment before they have the opportunity to equip possible resistance mechanisms), I also recommend a high dosage and failure to switch to other herbs. The list must not be used for the treatment of specific cases of illness without medical supervision. For specific cases, always consult a doctor who knows the medical botany.
Effects against upper respiratory infections could include a combination of tea from 3g of blueberry leaves ( vaccinii myrtilli folium ) , larger quantities of fresh garlic (milk or cream), larger quantities (up to 10g) of fresh young grated ginger ( Zingiber officinale , Fresh ginger with meat, liver or so), 5g ginseng right ( Panax ginseng ) , do not save. Blueberries, garlic and ginger are known antiviral herbs, and ginseng also has protective effects. Add turmeric ( Curcuma longa ) to the meal, again in high dose. The food should be "seasoned" with antiviral spices: Dobromysl or oregano ( Origanum vulgare ), rosemary ( Rosmarinus officinalis ), coriander ( Coriandrum sativum ), fennel ( Foeniculum vulgare ), all in gram quantities. These plants are all known to contain antiviral substances and should not underestimate them. According to Dr. Duke, the preparation of salad is suitable for olivae oleum virginale or oenotherae biennis oleum oil. Healing sponges can also be taken into account - for example Ganoderma lucidum - mushrooms often contain antibacterial substances.
In addition to immunomodulation, ginseng also has an effect against sexual dysfunction , gloss is an effective anti-cancer agent . If there is no treatment for chronic inflammation within two weeks, we can still try a combination of other antiviral herbs: Stachys officinalis , Leonurus cardiaca , Scutellaria baicalensis , Hyssopus officinalis , Blackheads Common ( Prunella vulgaris ), all about, everything about 2g a day. In addition, chicory ( Cichorium intybus , root) and echinacea ( Echinacea purpurea , flowering flower or flower) may also be St John's wort ( Hypericum perforatum ), again all 2g. This is a so-called shotgun approach, we try to make some of the herbs for the infection to "sit". You just have to rush to the nearest good herbal store and throw them out there. In addition, the so-called Maltese walnut ( Justicia adhatoda ) and the so-called Cat Cat ( Uncaria tomentosa ), the Brussels bureaucrats may soon realize that it is not in their interest to forbid the herbs, so that Uncaria is unreasonably forbidden in the EU Do not worry.
The list of herbs that can be used for infection can be further expanded: there are Melissa officinalis , 4g a day, lemon balm ( Monarda citriodora ), Ajuga reptans , Astragalus membranaceus . Antiviral effect also has blueberry ( Juniperus ), edible ( Phytolacca acinosa ), honeysuckle ( Lonicera ) and golden or golden rain ( Forsythia suspensa ). From mushrooms there are references to the caterpillar ( Cordyceps , Lee2014aec ).
Before this article is completed, I will end it with a recommendation that you complement the current therapy for respiratory infections with a combination of purple chunks and garlic , which is strategically recommended by Abdullah2000scu (see the reasons there).
