Herbal medication uses plant life, or mixtures of place extracts, to take care of illness and promote health. In his years of practice and coaching Dr. Christopher continued the earlier Thompsonian use of cayenne pepper (Capsicum frutescens) as a simplification of the therapeutic ramifications of using Composition powder. He recommended taking a dose of 1/2 to at least one 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper two or three times daily and more often if dealing with a cool. While this may have a mildly harsh influence on the gut of sensitive individuals, it is normally a safe common folk treatment for the treatment and elimination of colds and other top respiratory complaints.

Oddly enough, cayenne pepper is taken by certain African natives on a regular basis to avoid sickness.
For sore throats and upper respiratory infections we've always done garlic tea: a clove of garlic clove, 1/4 tsp cayenne, 1 tbsp fresh lemon drink in boiling water, add up to 1 tsbsp organic local honey to taste. Sometimes I put apple cider vinegar in it too. My kids got whooping cough come early july, and we added your elderberry syrup recipe & high doses of ascorbic acidity. They recovered more speedily than other kids we understood who got it. Thanks a lot for your website and advice!

To help clear up a sore throat, gargle with a mixture of sage, apple cider vinegar, and salt. The salt, through that magical pressure we call osmosis, will sketch excess fluid from the cells in your neck that has been causing uncomfortable inflammation. The apple cider vinegar may help to kill off the bug, but even if it generally does not, it still seems to help with the pain. Sage is a wonderful herb when it comes to colds. It really is astringent, this means it will help draw excess liquid out of tissues, and anti-bacterial. The quantity of sage used results in an exceedingly concentrated tea-it isn't the tastiest infusion, but it is good at its job.
