On The 6th Day of Christmas, My Chiropractor Recommended To Me- Natural Remedies for Coughs

Posted Dec 17 2010 5:30pm

natural remedies for coughsBecause upper respiratory infections, coughs and colds are so prevalent in Colorado in the wintertime, I think this resource is a gem.

I love things that are earthen and holistic. Organic herbs and spices are truly blessings from God. One of the best (and little known), natural remedies for coughs and upper respiratory problems is an herb known as Tussilago farfara, or Coltsfoot.

Coltsfoot is one of the most widely used herbs for the treatment of coughs and other lung complaints, and is the basis for many of the herbal cough preparations sold in Europe. The chemical constituents have expectorant, anti-tussive, anti-spasmodic, demulcent, anti-catarrhal and diuretic properties, making Coltsfoot extremely helpful in the case of racking coughs such as those that accompany chest colds, asthma and emphysema.

Coltsfoot is hard to find. I get it from Mountain Rose Herbs. I buy a two pounds at the beginning of winter. I steep it as tea, as needed. I give it to the kids with lemon and honey. You can find it by clicking on the banner below.
