4th chest infection in 12 months. They have given me antibiotics again. Don't want to take them. I have never smoked. I am feeling really down. I am going away to the country with my dogs a week today, I feel so ill, headache, chest ache. i don't want to do anything.
I am sick of this, I am not a good patient. I take now, 2000 mg vit c, strong b, vit liver caps. Skate liver caps. I should not be ill.
Anything i have missed??

Oh I'm sorry you feel bad Athena. patpat.gif That sucks big time. gaah.gif My guess is you pick up infections at work as you do hang around sick people. Of course a good immune system is vital in your line of work which I'm sure you know. It's claimed 80% of the immune system resides in the gut and antibiotics kill the good bacteria too. Catch 22. gaah.gif

Hope you feel better soon. I don't think I know anything you don't already know, but if I find some clues I'll post them here.

Take care. hug.gif

mix 1/2 teaspoon in 8 oz glass of water

coats that esophagus thingy

you'll breath better.

~~~~~~~~ song ~~~~~~~~~~~

two grenades in the Foyer

one out in the ditch

man around the corner
bout to toss the switch

basement bomb

high rise hell

generation gone
child ring that bell

Revolution mind

children fill the street

Dissolution overtime

People need to eat

Lone Man gunnin'
for anyone around

Rich Man Sunnin'
til he's Golden Brown

Drug for the poor

more money for the rich

Desperation Knockin'

hard at the door

World startin' rockin

to balance out the score

wave g'night

to the night time sky
say a prayer and sleep

wave g'night

to reason of why
stay beneath the sheet

outside , revolution rise

flames fill the skies

hear the mothers weep

Turn the page
another day
and still we need to eat

burn the page
run away
now, no where to even sleep

fall of money
fallin' father still

land of milk and honey
gone into the landfill

stop your mind
and think of nothing

problems gone away

about time
this came to something

Same old toss
same old dice

same old game

never turns out nice


Children , heed your fate

I would have helped out

but I came in far too late

Revolution on the rise
people wore completely out

Resolutions demise

we wore this world out


Ah, a very nice change

bout time for it,,,

we've become far too strange ,,,

~~~~~~ End ~~~~~~~~

Sorry to hear that, Ahenagoddess.

Hope you get better soon!

Don't know if you can get hold of any, where you live,
but my personal experience says these little buggers:


'tyrnimarja' in Finnish, 'havtornsbär' in Swedish - can't for
the life of me remember the English word for'em - are
waaaay more effective than anything that comes in pill form.
A raw handful a day keeps trouble away for sure.
Finland's secret anti-viral/bacterial weapon ;)

Very high in C-vit, + other vital stuff.
Recommended warmly.

Sorry to hear that Athena. Wow, 4x a year that's horrible. I know because I get bronchitis now and again, but (knockonwood) my immune system always wins the battle (knockonwoodagain).

Four hundred years ago Mr. William Turner, who wrote "Herbal" emphasized wild Thyme as a remedial agent and had healing properties in brochitits, whooping cough, etc. He declared that it "hath the power to drive forth flegme." This therapeutic feature was indeed corroborated by the conservative "Dispensatory".

It is composed of "Saccharate extract of Thyme" - Taeschner Method. The alcoholic extract (Thyme leaves steeped in grain alcohol) is mixed with sugar and water to form a syrup.

A facsimile can be made in your kitchen merely by steeping or simmering wild Thyme herb in warm water, the standard remedy for centuries.

As per Professor Heber W. Youngken, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy he teaches that the properties of garden Thyme (T. vulgaris) are antispasmodic in the treatment of whooping cough, dry nervous asthma, severe spasms where there is little sputum, and other respiratory inflammation.

For a more complex adult cough syrup here's a recipe I found in one of my old herbal books:

Mix together equal parts of wild Thyme, Boneset, Hoarhound, Irish Moss, Chestnut leaves. Simmer 2 teaspoonsful of the mixture in a pint of hot water for 10 minutes. Allow to cool for half an hour and strain. Add 1/2 cup of brown sugar or honey to each cupful of liquid.

Dose: One or two teaspoonsful every 1/2 to 1 hour as required. Sip slowly.

Now, I have not made the above complex cough syrup, but when I have a chest infection I make a tea of wild Thyme, Rosemary with lemon and honey and it seems to speed recovery for me. I also make an inhalant of wild Thyme, Rosemary, Eucaplytus and Lemon Balm which seems to alleviate the symptoms somewhat.

Take care.

I had to consult my Phytomedicine handbook and found a whole bunch of plants that would be potent against bronchitis. There's more info on all on these such as active substances, pharmacology, toxicology, medical use and preparation and dosage. If you want to know more about any of those just ask, it was just too much to translate all of them.

Wild Thyme
Iceland lichen
Cardamom *
Carrageen (Irish moss)
White horehound
Licorice *
Red or Yellow onion
English Ivy
Star Anise
Lance-leaf Plantain
Garden Thyme
White Deadnettle

* also potent medicine against Candida Albicans

Hi Octo. I noticed a lot of the herbs from my book are repeated in yours, that's promising. I also knew someone who only used Mullein for chest inflammations and he swore by it.

Athena, you need to include D3 and Astaxanthin to your regime. Also consider this super/master tonic. I am just getting settled into our new place and to a point where I will soon start making probiotics again. I also plan on starting a batch of the tonic very soon. You can get non-pasteurized, bottled kimchi and sauerkraut in most health food stores for your probiotics. It can be a bit expensive, but you don't need to eat much.

The directions on that tonic page differ a little from other pages. That page says to strain the liquid and take it straight up. The other pages say don't strain it and that you can mix it into other things. For instance:

Add 2-4 tablespoons to jar, followed by 1-4 tablespoons honey or maple syrup. Add a cup or more of real juice (orange, apple, etc). Shake and sip often until desired effect is achieved.

1 - 2 Tablespoons SuperTonic in one cup hot water. Add honey to taste. Makes a zingy delicious tea!

It seems the only difference is that it is more potent if taken straight.

Also, it is VERY hot.
