Herbal Brew Remedy?

Posted by Melissa on 11/29/2007

...thanks for the information- it is very useful. Lastly, have you ever heard of an adverse reaction of someone using the H202? Under the emphysema section there is a man who writes of very sucessful that in some cases has reversed the emphysema, an herbal brew made of great Mullein, hyssop, lobelia with cayenne acv. Any opinion on that? Thanks SO much for your help.

Dear Melissa: It's an old recipe for bronchitis and coughs and might help, although, I have not yet experimented with that. However, my remedy for coughs is the use of peppermint oil. Some people might use eucalyptus oil but those are more warming and is most used. The remedy for bronchitis is mullein, hyssop, eucalyptus, garlic, ginger, cinnamon and tea being what I think are acceptable. Liquorice extract has been shown to increase immunity and also an adaptogen hormonal for people with long term sickness and protects that person against adrenal exhaustion, which I think is fitting for people with emphysema. Whether it works well or not on emphysema, at least for licorice extract anyway, I think is important against adrenal exhaustion from long term sickness.

The hyssop used may also be of value because of its purgative and expectorant properties, which clears the mucus from its respiratory tract, in addition to cayenne pepper, it makes hyssop more stronger by dilating the capillaries. Because hyssop is a mucolytic agent it makes for a great expectorants in clearing out the mucus. Although my recipe for a mucolytic agent is a more powerful, N Acetyl Cysteine 500 mg, or if needed, perhaps 500 mg taken three times a day. The mucus would liquify quite quickly and is the most powerful one I have seen. Which is why I prefer N Acetyl Cysteine over the hyssop, its pharmacology as more exacting. The beauty about N Acetyl Cysteine is its detoxification of the liver and the removal of mercury heavy metals from the body. To increase circulation, I might take cayenne pepper plus turmeric, instead of just cayenne pepper. Turmeric supports liver in detoxification and also have some antibacterial properties. Of course there are many approach to this but I prefer to attack not on gray areas, but on the most pressing issues.

As to Apple cider vinegar they mentioned, I disagree as alkalization is most important. Therefore apple cider vinegar should always be added with baking soda such as 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar plus (in case of emphysema) 1/2 teaspoon (as opposed to the usual 1/4 teaspoon), plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate, with drinking water added 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt per one liter of water, necessary to maintain normalized electrolyte imbalance and alkalization necessary for the body to remove the carbon dioxide much more efficiently. IT MUST BE NOTED THAT the use of N Acetyl Cysteine works most efficiently whenever the pH ranges between 7-9. This is why baking soda, potassium citrate and sodium bicarbonate, plus some sea salt (pH averages 8) is used in drinking water. My remedies are interconnected.

As to the mentioned lobelia, its traditional uses lies with its expectorant and helping clear the respiratory tract, but the one thing I don't like about it might be its nicotine content such as those found in tobacco. I therefore prefer the use of akalizing in reducing carbon dioxide and increasing oxygen and the capillary dilating properties (such as for the lungs) from alkalization as a somewhat more moderate approach, perhaps not the best, since I don't like nicotine and its emetic properties of the lobelia.

Therefore, what I do know for sure with my own direct experience that has worked in cases of emphysema is the priority needs in addressing problem of the water filling the lung sacs which can choke a person alive, and the blockage of additional breathing the accumulation of fungus and bacteria and of the mucus.

Hence the most important thing is to drain the water that fills up the lung, remove the fungus and bacteria, and clearing out of the mucus as part of an important aspect of emphysema as a priority.

The clearing of liquid and water in sacs is best accomplished by inhalation of H2O2. The fungus and bacteria are thus cleared the same way with H2O2, but an inhalation of H2O2 PLUS borax and perhaps salt could best clear the fungus and the bacteria in synergy. The clearing out of mucus is achieved by taking the N Acetyl Cysteine 500 mg (up to three times a day), to liquefy the mucus. The alkalizing increase the oxygen in the blood as akalizing removes the carbon dioxide from the blood a lot easier. This can easily be demonstrated by adding baking soda to a soda water or an ordinary cola. Carbon dioxide mixed in water, you get carbonic acid, adding the baking soda would cause the water to liberate the carbon dioxide as the CO2 foams out. Vitamin A seems to support normal mucus and helps breathing somewhat, although an occasional once or twice a week vitamin A, 25,000 i.u. is needed.

Because emphysema causes the lungs to push the heart, the heart has to pump a lot harder and causes weakness to the heart, as a result to increase muscular energy for the heart and reduce the weakness of the heart electrolyte balances (sodium bicarbonate, sea salt, and potassium citrate, in a rough but proper ratio), vitamin E, and vitamin B complex (B50) and plenty of CoQ10 (extremely expensive and taken if only when necessary) would give the energy back to that person within hours. Licorice extract would help a person recover from adrenal exhaustion.

While I certainly didn't address the issue of aveola sacs being damaged and the excess carbon and tar which lines the lung, it is the understanding of most conventionla medicine that nothing can be done about it. However, certain cases I have noted that people who do take plenty of colloidal silver, such as 1 tablespoon x 4 times a day (I prefer to add drops of H2O2 optional) or perhaps nebulizing with colloidal silver may cause the body to expel the black sooth from the lung clearing the emphysema. That's just my experience that there is some remote possibility that this can be done. The reason is that colloidal silver has a certain electrical charges that causes the cells to regenerate. This can easily be proven if you follow up on Dr. Robert Becker's work on "The Body Electric" on his regeneration of limb experiment he done on salamanders and mouse which he did succeed to some extent, given the lack of funding. As this is a possibility it makes for a potential that a lung can regenerate. However, to be on the safe side, I also used aloe vera which contains allantoin (snails have it too) and both colloidal silver and aloe vera allantoin may cause the body to regenerate the lung cells as needed. I tend to take aloe vera gel internally or some aloe vera oil, in other cases I might mixed only a tiny pinch of allantoin in to the food as well.

In summary the original remedy of hyssop, lobelia, ACV cayenne, at the very least a baking soda and some potassium should be added.

My remedy substitutes hyssop with N Acetyl Cysteine, leave out the lobelia because of the nicotine, add the baking soda to ACV to get it more alkalizing, at the very least. But this leaves out regeneration of aveolar sacs (from allantoin), avoided clearing the liquids (from the H2O2), killing off the fungus (from the borax both using ultrasound or 1/4 teaspoon borax in one liter of water) and an unrecognized expectorant and regeneration properties of the colloidal silver, both as a nebulizer and taken internally, and the necessity to support heart functions as the lungs causes the victim to be extremely weak through the use of electrolytes, vitamin E, magnesium and vitamin B complex. Besides all this is the importance of increasing oxygen level from alkalizing still so the person can be at least less dependent on the oxygen tank. A cayenne pepper, can always be taken to help with circulation, but this depends the individual, a turmeric, in my opinion might be synergistic if added with cayenne, although not a definite requirement.

Ted, I don't know why you're getting all panicy about nicotine, as many of the foods we eat contain nicotine. Some of the foods which contain nicotine are, eggplant, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, wheat and various other grains. Do some research and you'll find many other foods which contain nicotine. Also, if a person suffers from vit.B3 deficiency they get a deadly disease called pellagra, although I'm sure that you already know that. You should know what Vit.B3 is, [ Vit,B3 = Niacin = Nicotinic Acid ] Nicotinic acid comes from nicotine.

It may not be politically correct to question the [Anti Smoking Industries] propaganda about smoking being the cause of every disease known to mankind, BUT, horses and dogs and cattle etc. all get emphysema as well as humans. What I've never been able to figure out is, who lights the cigarettes for all these animals that get emphysema?

Maria Treben, an Austrian herbalist, author of [Health through gods pharmacy] states, " it is my firm belief that emphysema is caused by an enlarged liver"

Andreas Moritz [ener-chi wellness.com] says that he believes, MOST BREATHING PROBLEMS ARE A RESULT OF LIVER PROBLEMS.
