Herbal Remedies For Cough and Bronchitis

June 17th, 2006

If you are one of those people who get rained on a little and get bogged down by the Flu the next day, you are probably sick of having coughs and Colds and sick of taking medicine over and over again. Sometimes, it is good to know that there are a lot of Herbal Remedies that are available, effective, easy to use and can replace the mundane cough syrup and escape its side effects.

Bronchitis is a serious medical condition. If you present the symptoms for this, please consult with your physician as soon as possible. These herbal treatments are here to help but are not guaranteed cures for conditions as serious as Bronchitis.

Coughs

There are a lot of traditional and herbal treatments for coughs and some are indeed stranger than others. The more common ones that are still widely used today involve using honey and Lemon. Other Herbs include Garlic, onions, Lavender, Thyme, linseed, nettle and dock. Still others are cabbage, carrots, turnips, Comfrey, Rosemary, Balm, Glycerin and Peppermint. Among all the Herbs, Eucalyptus is still the most popular cure.

There are many recommended herbal drinks to treat a cough. One remedy is boiling Coltsfoot in water with Garlic and brown sugar. An infusion made of Coltsfoot leaves sweetened with honey is also said to do the trick. Another treatment is syrup made by boiling Coltsfoot leaves with equal amounts of Plantain leaves and honey. An herbal drink for coughs was based on a mix of dried Sage, honey and vinegar. Another was based also on dried Sage but with brown sugar and Ginger in water. Another cure was formed by mixing and heating butter, vinegar and honey; also was mixing hart shorn, Almond oil, Hyssop, sugar and water. Another cure for coughs is an infusion made of Hyssop, Mullein, ground Coriander and Marshmallow leaves.

The older traditional cures were stranger. One of the folk cures concerns boring a hole into a Lemon and filling the hole with honey. The Lemon is then roasted wherein the juices are collected and fed to the patient. A stranger remedy involved boring a hole into it and the hole was filled with brown sugar which is then left to sit overnight. The next day, the juices that were collected are given to the patient.

Some of the older cures are harder to come by. One example of these cures is a mix of the juices of leeks and fresh Breast Milk of a nursing mother. Another less palatable remedy involved boiling two or three snails in barley water. You may not want to go through all this trouble for a cough.

Bronchitis

Bronchitis is the inflammation of the bronchioles of the lungs and is a lot more serious than cough. Actually, the cough is reduced to one of the symptoms of Bronchitis. Although most cases require the treatment of antibiotics, there are still a lot of Herbal Remedies to help heal and relieve the symptoms of Bronchitis.

The more common remedies for Bronchitis are Eucalyptus, Garlic, honey, Ginger, Cinnamon and tea. Herbs like bugle, butterbur, caraway, Angelica, Borage, Coltsfoot and Comfrey are known to help in the relief of the symptoms. Other Herbs such as chickweed, chervil, fenugreek, Fennel, ground ivy, liquorices, Myrrh, madder, knotgrass and Marjoram are also effective. Mullein, Parsley, Plantain, onion, Sage and primrose, Thyme, white Horehound, watercress, speedwell and savory are also utilized in the treatment of Bronchitis.

Allergies and Hay Fever - What Will Help?

April 20th, 2006

Antihistamine drugs work by blocking the release of histamine in response to an allergen. This prevents the allergic reaction in the short term and helps to clear allergic reactions like sneezing, red, itchy and watery eyes and nose.

However, they also often have unwanted side effects like drowsiness, heart palpitations, impaired Concentration, etc.

Because they often become less effective over time, it may be necessary to keep trying new drugs to try and achieve the same therapeutic effect.

What are SOS HistaDrops and how can they help?

One of the most frequently requested remedies by our customers was for a safe and effective remedy to treat Hayfever and airborne Allergies.

Customers indicated a dissatisfaction with Antihistamine drugs and a need to find an effective natural alternative. Many customers had previously tried Herbal Remedies for Hayfever without much success.

SOS HistaDrops combine herbal and homeopathic ingredients for fast and effective relief of the major symptoms of Hayfever and Allergic Rhinitis linked to airborne allergens.

Manufactured in a fast-acting tincture formula, SOS HistaDrops can quickly clear all the troublesome symptoms of airborne Allergies, while also helping to strengthen your system against further attacks.

NOTE: SOS HistaDrops may also be used with AllergiClear tablets for the prevention and treatment of allergic conditions.

Use SOS HistaDrops to:

  • Quickly treat the symptoms of airborne Allergies, Allergic Rhinitis and Hayfever
  • Clear runny nose and watering eyes.
  • Reduce sneezing and itchy eyes and nose
  • Relief inflammation, redness and swollen eyes
  • Reduce dependence on OTC and prescription antihistamines with unwanted side effects

SOS HistaDrops may also be used with AllergiClear tablets for the prevention and treatment of allergic conditions.

What are the ingredients?

SOS HistaDrops contain the following herbal and homeopathic ingredients in fast acting tincture form:

Urtica urens: This herb has been used for many centuries in folk medicine to treat inflammation and Allergies. Modern research has recently supported its use as and effective anti-inflammatory and natural Antihistamine. It is a rich source of quercitin, a flavonoid known to inhibit the release of histamine without the side effects of Antihistamine drugs.

Plantago lanceolata (also known as Plantain) also has a long history of traditional use for the treatment of respiratory complaints, including coughs and inflammation and has known anti-catarrhal and antispasmodic properties. Plantago has been approved by the German Commission E to treat coughs and soothe the irritation of mucous membranes and is extremely effective in the treatment of Allergic Rhinitis due to its soothing and astringent properties.

Allium cepa C30 is a homeopathic remedy which quickly treats stinging, burning, streaming nose and eyes and stops violent sneezing attacks, while reducing inflammation in swollen itchy eyes.

Ars. iod. C30 is also homeopathically formulated to assist with all the symptoms of Hayfever and Allergic Rhinitis. It can also help to reduce irritability and to prevent sneezing and a wheezing chest.

How do I use SOS HistaDrops?

SOS HistaDrops are taken when needed at the first signs of the symptoms of Hayfever, Allergic Rhinitis or reactions to airborne allergens like pollen, grass seeds, house dust, animal dander, etc.

They come in convenient drop form, making it easy to adjust the dosage for adults and children of different ages.

Simply dilute the drops in about 1/4 cup (less for the younger child) of water or juice.

Adults and teenagers : 10 - 15 drops

Children 6 - 12yrs : 5 - 10 drops

NOTE: SOS HistaDrops may also be used with AllergiClear tablets for the prevention and treatment of allergic conditions.

Caution: Safety during Pregnancy has not yet been established. Pregnant women can use our Triple Complex BronchoSoothe as an alternative.

How have SOS HistaDrops helped others?

“These drops are fantastic! They work quickly and I can say that I feel more awake, rather than half asleep which is how the antihistamines made me feel. Thanks for a great remedy!!!!!!” Alison, Redhill

“My daughter has been using your AllergiClear along with the HistaDrops and we have noticed a big difference. Spring used to be a difficult time of year for her and now she is more outgoing and not sneezing all the time. We are very grateful for your help.” Zelda B.

“As a sportsman I am out in the open a lot and really can suffer from grass cuttings, pollen, etc. Indoors the dust gets to me. The HistaDrops really help to reduce all the sneezing, watery eyes, nose and redness. I carry them everywhere with me!” Ben J.

How long will a bottle last?

One bottle of SOS HistaDrops will last approximately a month or longer, depending on age and frequency of use.

How long until I see results?

Relief is usually noticed within 10 - 15 minutes. Some people may require a second dose after about 30 minutes.

Manage Allergies and Asthma

April 11th, 2006

More and more people are affected by seasonal Allergies. Twenty years ago, about 10% of the population experienced seasonal Allergies; today the numbers have doubled to more around 20% to 25%. One in ten people suffer from some form of allergy.

Allergies can lead to other chronic conditions such as Asthma and they should not be trivialized or ignored by any means.

“It’s a lot easier to treat the allergic reactions before they start happening than to wait until you’ve had symptoms,” according to Andrew Singer, M.D., an allergist at the University of Michigan Health System. “Typically, this means starting a couple weeks before allergy season even begins to get your body ready for the onslaught of allergens. Once the allergic reaction happens, it takes more medication and it’s much more difficult to calm things down and make you feel better.”

Starting and treating Allergies and Asthma early means being ready any day now. Depending on what part of the country you live in, allergy season is likely to begin around March or April and continue straight through to early fall. The earliest allergens to pop up are tree pollens, followed by grass pollens and then different types of weed pollens. Ragweed, one of the most common allergens, usually comes in to play around late August or early September.

Allergies and Asthma

Allergies can also be linked to Asthma. Among children with Allergies, 50% to 70% may have underlying Asthma as well. For some people, allergens in the environment specifically trigger their Asthma.

“Certainly when Asthma’s involved, Allergies become a little bit more dangerous because the Asthma can get to the point where a child or adult can have difficulty breathing, may need supplemental oxygen, or may need to be seen in the emergency room for further treatment,” Singer says.

Allergic Asthma is characterized by symptoms that are triggered by an allergic reaction. Allergic Asthma is the most common form of Asthma, affecting over 50% of the 20 million Asthma sufferers. Symptoms of allergic Asthma can include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath or rapid breathing, and chest tightness. However, allergic Asthma is triggered by inhaled allergens such as dust mite allergen, pet dander, pollen and mold resulting in Asthma symptoms.

Allergic Rhinitis, or Hayfever, is triggered by “allergens,” substances that initiate an allergic response, such as pollens or molds, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI). Grass, weeds and pollen trigger hay fever and Allergies.

Many trees, grasses and weeds have small, light and dry pollens that are easily carried by the wind. Some of the major outdoor allergens that cause allergic reactions during this time of year are trees such as oak, elm, Birch, ash, hickory, poplar, sycamore, maple, Cypress, walnut, and Western Red Cedar; and grasses such as timothy, Bermuda, orchard, red top, and sweet vernal. In late summer and fall weeds such as ragweed, sagebrush, pigweed, Russian thistle and cocklebur, become problematic for allergy sufferers.

For natural Asthma relief, Native RemediesBioVent assists with the management of chronic Asthma and the control and prevention of Asthma attacks.

Allergies and Sinusitis

Hay fever and other allergic reactions can be contributing factors to sinusitis. Allergies can trigger swelling in the Sinus and nasal mucous linings. The swelling can cause Sinus passages to close up, trapping bacteria in the upper respiratory tract. Bacteria in the sinuses can develop into a Sinus infection.

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the hollow cavities around the eyes and nose known as the nasal sinuses. While Allergic Rhinitis (hay fever) is an inflammation of the mucous membranes of the nose, sinusitis is an inflammation of the sinuses.

Allergy and Sinusitis Symptoms

Frequent allergic reactions, resulting in sinusitis, can cause sinusitis to become a chronic condition. Chronic sinusitis sufferers have frequent and ongoing inflammation of the Sinus membranes. According to The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases some symptoms associated with sinusitis include:

  • Headache in the morning
  • Pain when pressure is applied to the forehead over the frontal sinuses
  • Aching in the upper jaw and teeth along with tender cheeks
  • Swelling of the eyelids and tissues around the eye
  • Pain between the eyes
  • Tenderness when pressure is put on the sides of the nose
  • Loss of smell and nasal congestion or runny nose
  • Earaches, neck pain, and deep aching at the top of the head
  • Fever
  • Weakness and tiredness
  • Coughing that can increase in severity at night
  • Postnasal drip causing a sore throa

Native RemediesAllergiClear naturally protects against all airborne and seasonal Allergies, Allergic Rhinitis and Hayfever. SOS-HistaDrops can be used when needed for quick natural relief of acute attacks of Allergic Rhinitis and Hayfever to relieve major symptoms.

Allergy and Asthma Management

An important component of any allergy and Asthma management plan is avoiding the pollens and molds that make you sneeze, have itchy eyes and wheeze. While Allergies can’t be cured, there are things you can do to limit or lessen your exposure:

  • Keep windows closed at night to prevent pollens or molds from drifting into the home.
  • Use an air conditioner and dehumidifier to keep air clean, cool, and dry in your house.
  • Keep car windows closed when traveling.
  • Minimize outdoor activity on days when the pollen count or humidity is reported to be high or on windy days when mold and pollen are blown about. Avoid going outdoors during peak times of year for pollen exposure.
  • Take vacations to a more pollen-free area, such as the beach or sea.
  • Wear a mask when doing lawn or garden work, such mowing or raking, which stirs up pollens and molds.
  • Avoid hanging Sheets or clothing out to dry, pollen and molds collect on them.
  • Vacuum your carpets, curtains and soft furniture often.
  • Take medications as prescribed in the recommended dosage. Do not take more medication to alleviate severe symptoms.
  • Take a shower after spending time outdoors to remove pollen and mold that may be on your skin and hair. Also, shower or bathe at night to remove pollens or other allergen from your hair and skin.
  • Remove any mold you find in your home.

“It’s impossible to completely eliminate all the things that might trigger your Allergies, but taking steps to delay your exposure to certain allergens may help,” said Jonathan Bernstein, MD, AAAAI fellow and member of the Indoor Allergen Committee.

If you lead the fast paced life, eat fast food, get insufficient rest and take unnatural chemicals � including chemical drugs both prescription and OTC - for Headaches, backaches, etc., you can exacerbate your Allergies.

In 99 out of 100 adults the body is depleted of chemicals. These chemicals are nothing more than the Minerals your body needs to function properly. In this day and age it is an absolute necessity to put those Minerals into your body by supplementing. Foods do not contain enough to give you the proper balance, even if you eat 100% Organic. When your Minerals (chemical) balance is where it should be your system will tend to give you less or no problems as with Allergies, Asthma and other illnesses and for those few who that simple step doesn’t solve the problem, it will require rebuilding the immune balance. Balancing the Immune System requires a number of Herbs and Vitamins to accomplish the proper and healthy balancing. Native Remedies offers a wide array of different tissue salts are composed of Minerals which occur naturally in your body and all Organic matter on earth, such as plants, rocks and soil and are all safe for use during Pregnancy, Breastfeeding and for all ages.

Allergies encompass a wide range of triggers and symptoms. Treatment can also be varied. Allergies and Asthma do not have to put major limits on your life. Nothing should stand in your way of having a full and active life. With proper diagnosis, prevention and treatment, there are no limits to what you and anyone with Asthma and Allergies can do!

Leap into the season with Native Remedies to have a naturally healthy spring in your step.

Helping Bronchitis With Essential Oils

March 22nd, 2006

Bronchitis is caused by congestion and inflammation of the bronchial passage ways in the lungs. It can be caused by a viral infection or allergens or sometimes something even unknown.

It can make it difficult to breath. Especially, if the mucous is thick and sticky. It becomes very difficult to cough it up and get it out of your chest.

It can be caused by allergens and/or infections. It can be an acute attack - sudden onset, as seen with Colds and upper respiratory or it can be chronic - which could be due to a lingering bacterial infection or due to irritations from environmental exposure to dust and other pollutants.

There are several Essential Oils that can help with Bronchitis. There are many Essential Oils that can help loosen the mucous and make the cough more productive. And to prevent it in the first place there are several Essential Oils to help build the Immune System.

You can use Essential Oils in a bowl of warm to fairly hot water, drape a towel over your head and breathe in deeply for 10-15 minutes. Or you can use several of the oils in the bath or shower. In the shower an easy way to diffuse them is to place several drops on a terra cotta passive type Diffuser and let the warm water hit the Diffuser while it sits on the shower stall floor. Of course, be careful not to step on the small disk. Using the Essential Oils in a bath or shower will give you some quick relief.

You can diffuse the oils in your bedroom all night using a fan Diffuser.

Or you can mix a little with a Carrier Oil and apply to your chest, neck, and the bottom of your feet. When you apply the oils mixed with a little carrier or massage oil, your body will absorb and be able to use the oils at the cellular level to help heal and repair damage done to the lung tissues.

The Essential Oils that appear to give the most relief for those suffering from Bronchitis include: Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Radiata , Lavender, Peppermint and Frankincense are most commonly used to help lung congestion. Other oils include Rosemary, Rosemary Verbenone, Niaouli, Marjoram, Pine needle , Cedarwood, Myrtle, Ravensara, Thyme linalool

Bronchitis chest rub Eucalyptus - 12 drops Peppermint - 5 drops Thyme - 5 drops 1 ounce of Sunflower oil

Mix well and gently rub on your chest and throat several times a day.

Another blend to use for Bronchitis Thyme linalool - 10 drops Eucalyptus Radiata - 10 drops Niaouli - 10 drops Myrtle - 25 drops

Blend well and use one of these ways - Put in about 10 drops in a bowl of steaming hot water and let the steam fill the air Place several drops on a tissue or use in a personal Inhaler. Put 3-5 drops in a Carrier Oil and massage over the chest and back.

This blend is great for children.

This recipe is adapted from Aromatherapy for the Healthy child by Valerie Ann Worwood.

Remember that Essential Oils all have Antibacterial and antiviral properties and the Essential Oils that are used in treating Bronchitis symptoms are especially good for treating these type of germs.

Special note: If you have chronic Bronchitis and you are a smoker, there is probably no Essential Oil that will help to get rid of your cough or congestion. You will need to stop smoking so the irritating substances will no longer be present in your airways.

Bronchitis foot rub

Cinnamon - 2 drops Nutmeg - 2 drops Ginger - 2 drops Thyme - 10 drops Eucalyptus - 10 drops Sweet Almond - 1 ounce

Blend all the Essential Oils together in a bottle, then add the Almond oil. Rub a few drops of this mixture on the bottom of your feet twice a day. Remember to wear socks to bed too. I know this appears strange but remember Essential Oils are easily absorbed through the skin on the bottom of your feet. The Essential Oils then quickly travel through the blood stream to the areas they are needed to help - in this case the lungs. You get slow absorption all day and the Essential Oils will be working for you without having to constantly reapply.

BronchoSoothe - Open Airways Naturally

January 14th, 2006

Use BronchoSoothe to immediately:

  • Open up bronchioles and relieve ‘tight’ chest
  • Reduce acute Bronchospasm
  • Restore Easy Breathing
  • Prevent additional stress linked to Asthma attack
  • Prevent Asthma attacks caused by cold air and allergic reactions

What are tissue salts?

Tissue Salts, also called cell salts or biochemic salts, are composed of Minerals which occur naturally in our bodies and all Organic matter on earth, such as plants, rocks and soil.

Dr Scheussler, a prominent 19th Century German doctor, conducted research which demonstrated that, when reduced to ashes, each human cell contains 12 Minerals or biochemic tissue salts and that these Minerals should be present in all living cells in perfect balance to ensure good health.

Imbalance, or a deficiency of any of the tissue salts, causes disease and the body begins to develop symptoms associated with the tissue salts that are lacking.

Restoring the correct balance of tissue salts in the body will therefore remove the symptoms and restore health and vitality.

This system of medicine is called Biochemistry and is still practiced today by homeopaths and naturopaths all over the world.

Are tissue salts Supplements or medicine?

A little of both in a way! Tissue salts can be described as ‘Nutroceuticals’ - nutritional substances which are used to maintain optimal health and functioning and also to restore balance and relieve symptoms of disease.

Tissue Salts can therefore be taken regularly to prevent illness and improve functioning (just like Vitamins), but can also be used to treat symptoms when this is necessary (as one would do with medicines).

The only difference is that they are taken more frequently to treat symptoms and less frequently as a preventative and a health aid.

As an example, certain tissue salts can be taken three times a day to promote digestive health. However, if symptoms like Indigestion, gas, nausea or Bloating occur, the frequency can be increased too.

If tissue salts are also nutritional, can I get them from a healthy diet?

Yes, in theory you can - and that is how it is supposed to be! Since the 12 different tissue salts are present in all Organic matter, our bodies obtain tissue salts from the food that we eat and the water that we drink.

A healthy diet should be able to provide all the tissue salts that our bodies need. Unfortunately, due to modern farming methods, the food that is available to us is often deficient in the Minerals and Vitamins that are essential for health - even if we follow a healthy diet.

Added to this is the fact that many people rely on fast food or pre-packed processed meals due to time constraints and a stressful lifestyle.

Over time, this can lead to symptoms of poor health or even disease. This means that the majority of people in Western countries are deficient in essential Vitamins and other nutritional substances, and need to take Supplements on a daily basis.

Are tissue salts safe?

Even some Vitamins taken in excess can do harm! Not so with Tissue Salts.

Due to a unique and specialized manufacturing process, our tissue salts are present in a highly absorbable form and only minute amounts are therefore present in each tablet.

This means that tissue salts are extremely safe and free of side effects.

It is impossible to overdose with tissue salts and they may be safely be taken by people of all ages, as well as infants and women who are Pregnant or nursing.

How can herbal and homeopathic medicines help Asthma?

Herbal and Homeopathic Treatment of Asthma and other respiratory conditions can be extremely effective.

Depending on the severity of the Asthma, naturopathic Asthma relief will be gained by reducing or eliminating the need for the synthetic drugs and Inhalers and can also be safely used to complement conventional treatment of Asthma.

Used as part of a wider, holistic lifestyle management, herbal and homeopathic medicines can bring significant relief to sufferers of Asthma - without the side effects or other complications of the conventional drugs.

What is Triple Complex BronchoSoothe?

Triple Complex BronchoSoothe contains our amazing combination of biochemic tissue salts.

Placed under the tongue at the first signs of an Asthma attack, BronchoSoothe opens up the air passages, reduces Bronchospasm and inflammation, soothes Anxiety and allows easy and normal breathing to take place.

Triple Complex BronchoSoothe may be combined with our BioVent Natural Asthma Remedy for optimum results.

Triple Complex BronchoSoothe ingredients

Kali Phos - biochemic tissue salt prescribed for the treatment of nervous Asthma, tight coughs and hay fever

Mag Phos - biochemic tissue salt to quickly ease chest and throat constriction and Bronchospasm

Nat Sulph - biochemic tissue salt classically used as a natural broncho-dilator, to remove phlegm from the chest and soothe and heal mucous membranes

Safe for Pregnant and nursing women, as well as infants

How do I use Triple Complex BronchoSoothe?

Triple Complex BronchoSoothe comes in small sucking tablets which are placed under the tongue to dissolve. The tablets may also be dissolved in a little warm water and sipped or administered in a baby’s bottle.

Use Triple Complex BronchoSoothe to open up the chest, reduce Bronchospasm and restore natural breathing at the very first signs of an Asthma attack

Babies under 12 months: Dissolve one tablet in a little warm water and administer every 10 minutes until normal breathing is restored.

Children up to 6 years: Suck two tablets every 10 minutes until normal breathing is established.

Children over 6 years and adults: Suck two - four tablets every 10 minutes until normal breathing is established.

NOTE: Triple Complex BronchoSoothe can also be effectively used to treat Bronchitis, Flu and other chest infections in children and adults alike.

Can this natural medicine be used together with prescription drugs for Asthma?

Yes - Triple Complex BronchoSoothe can safely be used together with your prescription medication and will not interact negatively with synthetic drugs.

How long does one bottle last?

Depending on age and frequency of attacks, one bottle of Triple Complex BronchoSoothe can last a month or longer.

Tip: Use our BioVent Natural Asthma Remedy every day to strengthen the chest and improve respiratory functioning and health. Used regularly, BioVent is the perfect companion remedy to Triple Complex BronchoSoothe.

How has Triple Complex BronchoSoothe helped others?

“I have used your products for Asthma with great success. I notice that my attacks are less frequent and much milder. When I feel my chest tightening up I immediately suck four BronchoSoothe tablets every 10 minutes as prescribed and the symptoms disappear in no time. This is the most effective treatment I have used.” DH, Florida

“I have been dependent on an Inhaler for many years and have hardly needed it at all since starting with BronchoSoothe. I can’t believe how quickly my chest relaxes and 99% of the time the Asthma attack disappears. I can recommend BronchoSoothe with no hesitation” Jamie L.

“My son of 5 suffers from Asthma and I wanted to thank you so much for recommending the BronchoSoothe. We have been very impressed at the way it works so quickly. He has not needed his Inhaler at all in the past 3 1/2 months. After the success of BronchoSoothe I have ordered your BioVent Drops to use on a daily basis. We are very hopeful that using these two products together will help our son grow out of his Asthma problem altogether. Thanks for a really good product!” Gillian B.

Throat and Tonsil Infections

December 8th, 2005

All about Throats and Tonsils

Throats and tonsils are very vulnerable to infection. The throat is the passage through which we take in air - either directly or through the nose. The air that we breathe contains many pollutants (e.g. cigarette smoke or environmental pollution) as well as viruses and bacteria that may infect us with the Flu and other illnesses.

Throats may become swollen, red and painful when viruses like the common cold or Flu attack throat tissue. A bacterial condition commonly called ’Strep Throat’ (caused by streptococcus bacteria) can also result in extremely Sore Throat and infected throat tissue.

The throat also contains our tonsils, which are two sacs of lymphatic tissue situated at the back of the throat. Tonsils are extremely important in protecting the body against infection and help to guard against inhaled or ingested organisms. They also produce antibodies which help to fight against nose and Throat Infections. They may easily become infected, especially in childhood. Symptoms of Tonsillitis include swollen tonsils, Sore Throat, difficulty swallowing, bad smelling breath, fever, listlessness, flushed cheeks and a glassy eyed look.

Unfortunately recurring Tonsillitis often leads to a Tonsillectomy (surgical removal of the tonsils). Although doctors these days are more aware of the important role of the tonsils in Immune Functioning and children’s tonsils are not whipped out quite as readily as they once were, this is still fairly standard practice for children who suffer from recurring bouts of Tonsillitis and is one of the most common surgical procedures performed on children.

Once the tonsils have been removed, children lose a very important line of defense against infection and may be more susceptible to viral and bacterial infections, as well as Allergies. It is therefore important to be sure that there are no other options before agreeing to a Tonsillectomy.

How are Throat Infections and Tonsillitis usually treated?

For Sore Throat caused by viral infection like Colds or Flu, treatment usually involves OTC (over the counter) medicines like pain killers and lozenges to suck until the infection clears. Strep Throat and Tonsillitis are usually treated by antibiotics. While antibiotics can quickly clear the infection within a couple of days, regular use can weaken the Immune System and result in recurring infections.

It is important that Strep Throat and Tonsillitis are treated as they can lead to further infections elsewhere in the body. However, it is also important to know that antibiotics and OTC remedies are not the only options for treating these conditions.

There are many effective natural alternatives to OTC medicines and antibiotics routinely prescribed for Strep Throat and Tonsillitis.

Natural herbal and Homeopathic Remedies can help to safely reduce the symptoms of these conditions, clear the infection, cut recovery time and also strengthen the Immune System to prevent recurring infection.

What is Throat and Tonsil Dr?

Throat and Tonsil Dr is our unique 100% blend of herbal and homeopathic ingredients, especially chosen for their ability to treat all the major symptoms of Throat Infections, including Strep Throat and Tonsillitis.

It may be used either at the very first signs of infection to prevent throat and tonsil infections and may also be combined with FloraFlu tablets for throat and tonsil conditions associated with Colds and Flu.

To prevent recurring infection and to assist with the recovery process, we recommend that Throat and Tonsil Dr be used together with OralFlu Protect - our very effective homeopathic oral Flu vaccine. These two remedies may also be combined with FloraFlu in the case of Sore Throat or Tonsillitis associated with Colds or full blown Flu.

Use Throat and Tonsil Dr. to:

To my surprise, your Throat and Tonsil tablets were successful from the start! Since the first treatment 8 months ago, there have been no antibiotics and no recurring problems.

What Is Asthma?

October 18th, 2005

What is Asthma?

One in 10 children and one in three adults suffer from chronic Asthma.

An acute Asthma attack is caused by inflammation in the airways of the lungs, causing contraction and narrowing of the airways (bronchioles), restricting airflow and making breathing very difficult.

Chronic Asthma is a lung condition characterized by frequent Asthma attacks and requiring medical management to prevent and minimize acute attacks.

This can take the form of conventional Western medicine, homeopathic or naturopathic treatment. While many Asthma attacks are relatively mild and can be treated and controlled at home, some are more severe and may even require hospitalization.

Symptoms of Asthma

  • Tightness in the chest
  • Characteristic ‘wheezing’ sound, especially when exhaling
  • Shortness of breath
  • Persistent cough, especially at night
  • May have increased pulse, Anxiety or fear

What causes Asthma?

Asthma is strongly associated with pollution. The incidence of Asthma has risen sharply in the last 30 years along with a rise in industrialization and higher levels of environmental pollution.

Other possible causes of Asthma in vulnerable individuals include allergic reactions to dietary substances like wheat, dairy products, chocolate, nuts, preservatives and other chemical food and beverage additives.

Asthma attacks may also be brought on by pollen, house dust mites, tobacco smoke, feathers and other allergens. Even a temperature change, or the cold morning air, can cause broncho spasm and increase the likelihood of an attack.

In some individuals, Anxiety can precipitate an Asthma attack and stress and are therefore a contributory factor.

There is a strong hereditary link and Asthma can often be seen to ‘run in families’.

Naturopaths and homeopaths recognize that Immune System functioning can play a vital role in helping to control the symptoms of Asthma and strengthen the body’s defenses against environmental allergens.

How is Asthma usually treated?

Conventional Western medicine deals with Asthma treatment via a combination of Inhalers, anti-inflammatory medication, bronchodilators and even steroids.

While conventional medical treatment may sometimes be necessary, there are some definite limitations, including side effects, as well as negative effects on Immune System functioning - thereby leading to more Asthma attacks and reduced resistance to allergens.

While conventional medicine can sometimes control Asthma, this is often a temporary measure only.

Note: You should not stop your Asthma medication without first consulting your doctor, a trained naturopath or homeopath for guidance.

How can herbal and Homeopathic Remedies help?

Herbal and homeopathic Asthma treatment can be extremely effective. Depending on the severity of the Asthma, they can reduce or eliminate the need for the synthetic drugs and Inhalers and can also be safely used to complement conventional treatment of Asthma.

Used as part of a wider, holistic lifestyle management, herbal and homeopathic medicines can bring significant relief to sufferers of Asthma - without the side effects or other complications of the conventional drugs.

“This is a magic formula, that’s all I can say! Nothing has helped my five year old like this combination of BioVent and BronchoSoothe and I can tell you that I have been from doctor to doctor. He has suffered from Asthma all his life and this is the first time he has gone for more than one month without an attack. I felt that I had to write and encourage other mothers to try the natural way like I have. Thanks so much!” Julia, NJ

“My daughter is 16 and she has always had Asthma, especially when she becomes anxious. Anything can bring on an attack! She has Asthma when she has to take a test, when she is asked out on a date, when her father phones, when she is worried about anything. I have found your combination most effective and fully believe in natural ways of health. I was particularly impressed that you have combined herbal and homeopathic ingredients so effectively - which I have not seen elsewhere. This means that there is a big saving for people like me who prefer the natural way but end up with dozens of little bottles of herbal and Homeopathic Medicine! This time just two do the trick!” Greta, UK

“I had pneumonia as a child and have suffered from chest complaints since then. Every year in winter I develop respiratory problems and have been on antibiotics more times than I care to count. The older I get, the worse it seems to become. This year I have been taking your BioVent Drops along with ImmunityPlus and feel compelled to write and tell you how much better I have felt this winter. Apart from one minor chest infection, which cleared up quickly, I have hardly been ill at all.” Steve, NSW
