I read about mullein, hyssop, vinegar, and cayenne being used in copd treatments. Are there any specific instructions on how to adminster these herbs In treatment?
EC: There are more posts from Jack with more details, but here is Jack's original post.
?05/15/2006: Jack from Toledo, OH: "here's the formula i used for curing a bad case of emphysema for "willard booth" of marion ark 12 yrs ago. into a gallon pot, put the seed pods (tops) of 6 "great mullein" plant, bring to a boil, add 3 tbls of powered "lobelia", and also "hyssop" 1 oz of white apple cider vinegar, 2 tbls of powdered cayenne red pepper. keep boiling until about a pint of water has boiled off, (it will turn dark or reddish like coffee). let cool until you can strain (i used a nylon stocking). sweeten with sugar or honey to taste this will keep in frig for a week or more ( look up "great mullein" and you'll be surprised at what all it can do!). hyssop and lobelia are great expectorants!! i had willard take 3 pop bottle caps a day but you can take more it won' t hurt you, you can also use a heating pad on chest and do a number of "vigorous exhales" for about 15 minutes after taking .... good luck and god bless..."
