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 I recommend Dr. Dukea has intuitively compiled an approximate list of medicinal plants that can be tested for unspecified chronic airway disease. Due to 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 effect (an attempt to destroy as many microbes as possible at the start of antibiotic treatment before they have the opportunity to recall 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.
The effect on upper respiratory tract infections could include a combination of tea from 3g blueberry leaves ( vaccinii myrtilli folium ) , more fresh garlic (the flavor can be cured with milk or cream), larger quantities (up to 10g) of fresh young grated ginger ( Zingiber officinale , fresh ginger with meat, liver or so), to do 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 food, again in high dose. The food should be "seasoned" with antiviral spices: Dobromysl or oregano ( Origanum vulgare ), rosemary ( Rosmarinus officinalis ), Coriandrum sativum , Foeniculum vulgare , all in gram quantities. These plants are all known to contain antiviral substances and should not underestimate them. To prepare the salad, according to Dr. Dukea suitable for olivae oleum virginale or oenotherae biennis oleum oil. Healing sponges , such as Ganoderma lucidum, can also be taken into account - mushrooms often contain antibacterial agents.
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 may still try a combination of other antiviral herbs: Stachys officinalis , Leonurus cardiaca , Scutellaria baicalensis , Hyssopus officinalis , common ( Prunella vulgaris ), everything is probably about 2g every 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. It is a so-called shotgun approach, we try to make some of the herbs "treated" by the infection. You just have to rush into the nearest good herbal store and throw them out there. In addition, the so-called Maltese walnut ( Justicia adhatoda ) and the so-called cattle claw ( 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 useful in infection can be further expanded: there are Melissa officinalis , even 4g per day, Monarda citriodora , Ajuga reptans , Astragalus membranaceus . The antiviral effect is also on 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 finalized, I'll end it with a recommendation that you complement the current therapy for respiratory infections with a combination of purple chunky and garlic , which is strategically recommended by Abdullah2000scu (see the reasons there).
