Hyssop is a genus of plants including about a dozen aromatic herbal species related to the mint family of garden plants. It is an herbal remedy with roots back to the Biblical age, though some debate exists as to the exact plant referred to as 'hyssop' in the Bible.
As an herbal remedy, hyssop is best known as a component of treatments for respiratory conditions. We have already received positive feedback from users on the use of hyssop for emphysema in particular. It is a powerful expectorant. Additionally, hyssop tea has been a traditional natural treatment for rheumatism, taken daily. However, there is some concern about some mild toxicity.
Natural Cure Preparation: Native to the Mediterranean area, hyssop is a bushy evergreen that can be grown in most climates. The flowers or green tops of the plant are picked and steeped as a tea, infused, or otherwise treated to access their essential oils.

Hi, I am having a very hard time finding Mullein seed pods for Jack's Emphysema cure. I tried emailing Jack, but he never responded. I found the leaves, but not the seed pods. Does anyone know where I can buy them, or if I can use the crushed leaves in the tea, and how much I would use? Please help me, my father-in-law has really bad Emphysema.Replied by K

can someone who has successfully made jacks recipe for emphysema please be specific in how much mullein seed pods to use? jack mentioned seed pods from 6 "great mullein" plants. how much is that? too much or too little would make a difference wouldn't it? 10,20,30,50 pods? sorry for my ignorance, just want to get it right.Posted by Pat (Lexington, KY) on 11/18/2008
I was wondering how many Mullein seeds are needed for this formula. Also, is the lobelia and hyssop in seed or foliage form?

I have Emphysema and received one kit from Jack sometime back before he moved. I tried contacting him via Email and and phone but it was disconnected? Does anyone have a new phone number, email or home address for Jack so I can send the money to get another kit for my Emphysema?? Thank you.
EC: This is the email address we have for Jack: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jack will probably check in and read your feedback on this page at some point and get back to us. We haven't heard from him since mid-March.Posted by Jim (Orange, CAL) on 01/04/2008

Hello Jack, I read your cure for emphysema. My mother has Emphysema and COPD and is getting worse all the time. Mom weighs about 95lbs now and has trouble breathing so badly. We don't have the melliun plant here and I wanted to know How I can get this tonic for my Mother and my Dad who has Blacklung. Mom said she can't Live much longer the way she is. Can you please help me?.....Thank You.Posted by Judi (Albuquerque, New Mexico) on 10/18/2007
PLEASE POST THESE COMMENTS ON THE SITE: I have tried to make the tea that Jack recommends for the Emphysema cure- PLEASE JACK LET ME BUY SOME FROM YOU! I did get some Mullein from an herb store but don't know if they are the leaves, the pods or what. Followed the rest of the instructions and mine did not turn black after boiling for a long time. Sort of like red from the Cayenne pepper. However, I did drink it for several days now and I have not had any clearing gunk from my lungs. I will try it for a few days more but if Jack can e-mail me and he drives thru this area, perhaps he can help me. I quit smoking 1-1/2 yrs ago after smoking for 43 years and I KNOW there has to be some awful stuff stuck in my lungs that I would dearly like to expel.Posted by Jack on 07/17/2007

[YEA] Hi Jack!... First of all let me tell you that for getting up mucus and what seems like cleaning the lungs (I think) your formula cannot be beat!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could breathe all the way down to my feet!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It feels wonderful.I started walking without getting out of breath and now I can walk forever! I tried jogging (a VERY short distance) and was pleased with the results. Problem with jogging is I am just not up to working that hard yet...but I am off to a good start. As far as a cure....I am not too sure. Healing is one thing and cure is another. On days when humidity is high I feel the old shortness of breath coming back again so I am still working on that one.... Radiant Blessings, ChrisPosted by Jack (Toledo OH) on 01/10/2007
[YEA] when i was driving over the road i would stop at an assortment of truck stops and i remember one in particular, "wheeling wva." an elderly lady was being helped to a table and looked like she couldn't breathe, i asked her about it and she told me she was on "27different meds", i told her about my tea and asked if she would like to try it?? she replied she would like to do so, so i went to my truck and returned with a 8oz bottle of it, i first asked her to take a deep breath and tell me how deep she could feel the air go into her lungs she did and indicated not quite half way down, she then took some of the tea and repeated the deep breathing, this time she indicated nearly all the way but not quite all the way, this was all within a matter of 5 to 10 minutes, she volunteered "i haven't been able to breathe like this in years" ( i had those i gave it to take the cap off a plastic pop bottle and use it as a measure, then take one capfull straight down the second, hold in the mouth for a minute or so and swallow slowly, then the same with a third, but after swallowing breathe in with the mouth then out through the " nose" ) let me reinterate " i am not a doctor, nor do i pretend to be"! i simply instructed people and made the tea according to what my inner voice told me to"!Posted by Jack (Toledo, OH) on 01/08/2007
judi; my sincerest appologies for the delay in getting back to you, "as for the great mullien" i used as a matter of fact when crossing the country driving truck one of the best places i found to aquire " great mullien" was along the interstates in arizona and new mexico, along the highways i would just pull over and break off the tops of the plants (seed pods only) this time of year is good because it looks like long sticks sticking up and some would get forks in the top of the plant (thats ok) as for the other ingredients just punch in "herbal suppliers" in one of your search engines i use google you should also search for "pics of great mullein the herbPosted by Jack (Toledo, OH) on 06/04/2006
I should have said "into a gallon of water in a gallon pot" and just a little fact about one of the ingredients: "HYSSOP". WHEN "JESUS" SAID "I THIRST" THE ROMAN CENTURIAN HELD UP A SPONGE SOAKED IN VINEGAR WITH "HYSSOP" IN IT!! So hyssop has really been used for healing for thousands of years! And "great Mullien" grows along a lot of highways all over the USA " AND IT'S FREE, GOD PUT IT THERE! WITH NO PRICE SIGN ON IT!! THIS TIME OF YEAR IT LOOKS LIKE A DARK STICK OR DEAD WEED. IN THE SUMMER MONTHS IT HAS SMALL YELLOW FLOWERS ON THE TOPS OF IT AND THE LEAVES ARE LIGHT GREEN AND FEEL LIKE FELT OR VELVET ( IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, IT WILL MAKE YOU BREAK OUT AND FEELS LIKE ITCHING POWDER BUT IT WASHES OF WITH SOAP AND WATER"!)Posted by Jack (Toledo, OH) on 05/18/2006
just thought you may like to know, the day i made the batch of omega-ur i strained the roughage off the tea into a 1- gallon bottle, and put the roughage into 2 or 3 small bottles, and was about to leave on my run (i drove long haul semi-truck) and my inner voice told me not to throw it away. so i put it into the truck, drove nearly 1,000 miles to marion ark. and stopped for fuel, while in the restaurant i noticed the manager, margret booth would get upset each time the phone rang! being nosy as i am i asked her about it, she said her husband willard had emphesema, really bad, and "all of a sudden " there it was!! and i told her "your the one! "... she said what?? and i told her i had something for her to give willard.!!.....she said from who?...... i guess the "holy spirit told me to give it to you for him"! ..... i instructed her to take the "bottles home and boil it in a half gallon of water until it turned black, then strain, and sweeten with honey, "i saw her a few days later on my way back from the west coast and she said the second day he used it he started spitting up large tea leafed sized objects from his lungs!! a month or so went by and i stopped by their home and made 2 gallons more for him, 3 or 4 months later he put his oxygen bottle aside......!! he could breathe just fine..... (just a little side note, margret would take a quart ball jar of the tea to work for the older ladies who worked in the kitchen cuz it gave the energy and the younger girls who she said were lazy ..... she'd give them a table spoon when they complained of minstral cramps and in a few minutes she said they'd be running around like rabbits...!) ...... lolololo
a little 2 1/2 yr old girl in conroe texas had a habitual running nose her dad and mom gave her one"teaspoon" of the tea... in 10 minutes hernose cleared.....!Posted by Jack (Toledo, OH) on 05/15/2006
[YEA] 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...Replied by Jim
