I found this website purely by accident by doing a search for emphysema. Three years ago my wife suffered a bad cold which in turn became bronchitis and then pneumonia. She was treated with antibiotics for about a month but her health was never the same. She developed allergies and then the symptoms of asthma. She was put on various steroid medications along with inhalers. Sent from one doctor to another until finally told that she suffering from Emphysema. How could a once healthy runner who rarely caught a cold develop into Emphysema? I didn't buy it and questioned each doctor. Believe me they do not take lightly that you question them. Each time I was told that the symptoms are there and that we will treat the systems. Telling us that nothing else can be done other then medication.There is no cure plain and simple. Here I am searching the internet for any information that can find. I come across Earth Clinic and find this thread with Jack's recipe. This is something I want to explore. I ordered the herbs all in powdered form except for mullein. They didn't have it in powdered so I purchased it in herb form.
Made it as per the instructions. Put all the herbs into a nylon stocking and boiled until about a pint had evaporated. This was my first time making this so I didn't know what to expect. The mixture was a dark reddish brown. There was a large amount of fines in the pot which needed to be filtered. I used a funnel and cheese cloth to filter. The cheese cloth takes out a great deal but some of the fines manage to pass through. As you get to the bottom of the pot the process does get slower since most of the fines are on the bottom. The mixture was still cloudy so I decided to use unbleached coffee filters. At first the flow is quick but begins to slow down as it picks up the fines. Change the filter and continue until complete. When I was finished I had two full pints and one three quarters full. The final color was a dark red brown which was clear. One thing you need to know is when buying cayenne red pepper. There is a heat value that you need to take into consideration. I purchased 30,000IU which is about the lowest heat unit. And that still is quite hot since Tabasco sauce is 5,000IU. I was lucky since I had no idea what the IU meant before I had purchased it. Another thing is that I am debating as to whether I should have purchased in herb form verses powdered. I am still waiting on information or email on some questions that I have from who I had purchased this from. They have two products that can be used for placing the herbs in while boiling. One is called a Muslin herb bag and is washable and reusable. It also comes in several sizes. The other is called Press N brew bags which are similar to tea bags. This also comes in different sizes. Using these would cut down on the amount of fines. At the moment I just started giving the Jack's formula to my wife. I do have some high hopes that she will have some improvements. Hopefully I made everything correctly.
I purchased everything from Monterey Spice.
Last but not least I want to thank Jack for so kind and considerate for posting this recipe.
Yes this is truly amazing. My sis makes the recipe for a friend who was house bound. He now is traveling and helping with missions through his church. He is in his 70's. I use the recipe for myself as well. Worked in a knitting mill and developed a cough. Ended up quitting because of it. Ready to whip up another batch this week. Its a must have..........
I tried Jack's recipe and guessed that since it called for a gallon pot to make the tea, that I should add close to a gallon of water. The resulting tea has helped my husband a lot.
I'm so thankful to all the members of earthclinic.com who shared their experience how to cured their illnesses by using medicinal herb plants. My Dad has emphysema and can barely walk and eat. I found Jack's formula about the mullein leaf or seed, hyssop and Cayenne pepper. This is his 4th day drinking the tea process from that said plants. On the 2nd day of drinking this tea my dad throwing-up some mucus and we are guessing that's the lymph node found on his lung x-ray. after that happen I asked my dad how's he feeling right now, he told me he can sleep and breathe well since he drink that tea.
We will keep you informed on Dad's progress...
Mullein like Jack says is truly invaluable. I was selling mullein at a small stand when an elderly man came up to me and told me to keep it up. "That is great stuff. I had serious emphysema and was on oxygen all the time. I got to the place where I could hardly leave the house. Then someone told me that I should drink 3- 4 cups of mullein leaf tea daily. I thought it was too good to be true, that after all my years of doctoring and herbs one little leaf tea could help me, but I was desperate. I did it, faithfully and very soon I was off my oxygen able to get around again. It was a God-sent blessing to me. "
This was just the leaf that he used, and not the tops. But each part of the mullein is helpful. So if you cannot find the tops, try a quart of the leaf tea daily. I would add peppermint to make it taste nicer. Use 1/4 cup of mullein leaf and 2 bags of peppermint to a quart of boiling water. Turn off the heat and let it steep, covered for 15- 20 minutes. Strain and sweeten and add ice or drink hot. I would also take cayenne capsules 2 with each meal to increase the circulation and help the mullein to work better.
I'd been going through bad infection since the end of this past January. Started with a very bad abscessed tooth that blew up my face. Took 2 weeks treating holistically to get it down. Got about a week break, then it moved to the other side of my face. Took only 4-5 days to get that controlled. Finally went to the dentist & he put me on antibiotics before he'll pull my teeth. Started that & went into sinusitis, a virus? I'm 60 years old & Wednesday night I had some kind of full blown asthma/bronchitis attack? Never happened before. My neighbor was thankfully there & hit me with an inhaler. I thought I was going to die. It was very scary. My lungs completely shut down! Today my chest was so tight I could hardly move, wasn't sure what to do but pray. Holy Spirit had me remember your recipe I had once read on EC. I had all the herbs, including the Mullein tops I harvested last summer. I whipped up a batch & I am completely cleared up tonight & have the strength to write to let you & everyone know, It Worked! Opens the lungs right up!
Thank you Thank you THANK YOU Jack for passing this along......here's a big ol' hug & lots of love coming your way :)

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.
I almost completely ruined my lungs from years of smoking. Jack sent me his packet and it gave good and immediate symptom relief. Unfortunately he was unable to send more (a few months back), but I can tell you that the formula really did help.
Seeds for lobelia, hyssop and mullein can be purchased at mountainroseherbs.com
Yes, I recieved that package and it is working mom has 94% of her oxygen back. She was put in the hospital right before it came they wanted to do a trach but Thank God that Didn't Happen. She is now bathing by herself and she couldn't do that before. She is Cleaning house and cooking now. Dad has done as you have said and told me he can breathe much Better than before. Thank You so much for everything you've done. Only one problem everyone else here wants this stuff now so they can do it to.... alot of people here with either blacklung or the smokers diseases... Than you again made me Happy and mom is laughing now.
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.
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, Chris
When I was driving over the road I would stop at an assortment of truck stops and I remember one in particular, "Wheeling, WV." 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"!.
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 herb
