herbal cold & flu fighters

Author: Lily Mazzarella
With folks streaming into Farmacopia, there’s no question that sick season has arrived. From swollen throats to blocked sinuses, coughs and congested chests, here’s what Farmacopia owner & lead herbalist, Lily Mazzarella, recommends to her clients to help ease their symptoms & speed recovery. 

GOT SICK RAPID RECOVERY DROPS

Sometimes despite our most valiant efforts, those opportunistic germs still find their way in. Enter: Got Sick. Got Sick is Farmacopia’s tried-and-true weapon for rapid immune response. Chief herbs Andrographis, Echinacea, and Elderberry acutely support immune system health at onset. Not sick quite yet? Try our Not Sick Immune Defense Drops to keep sickness at bay.

DEFEND! THROAT SPRAY

Aching throat? If you get sick frequently, and it always starts in your throat, Defend! is for you. Heavy hitter herbs like Osha, Usnea, Echinacea, Red Root and Spilanthes encourage local immune activity and drainage in the throat’s lymphatic tissue. Sweet Ginger and Licorice Root bring great flavor and soothing comfort. Start spraying at first sign of throat soreness and inflammation. A must for travelers!

PRACTITIONER-GRADE EUCALYPTUS RADIATA ESSENTIAL OIL

Stuffy & congested? The most gentle of all eucalyptus species, Eucalyptus radiata has a long tradition for use in respiratory health. Reach for this cooling and decongesting oil to support deep and clear breathing throughout the chest, lung and nasal passages. Perfect for uplifting tired and overworked bodies. Add a few drops to some coconut oil and rub all over your throat and chest to replace your conventional Vicks-like vapor rubs.

SINUCARE 

Immediate sinus relief! Non-drowsy SinuCare provides natural sinus, bronchial, and lung support. Encapsulated Eucalyptus & Lemon Myrtle oils cut through congestion and Eucalyptus oil’s main component, 1,8-cineole has been well-researched for its antimicrobial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties; it appears to stimulate cell-mediated immunity, AND relax smooth muscle in airways. Note: You may get a little eucalyptus burp, which most people find refreshing.

CLEAR AIR

Clear phlegm in lung and chest with Health Concerns’ Clear Air. Traditional Chinese herbs target chronic cough with phlegm, wheezing and chest pain associated with bronchitis and asthma.

Got Sick - Respiratory Specific
Catherine - San Francisco
Extra-Level Respiratory Support

Nourishing Lung tincture has been our go-to during the now-annual fire season, reducing the impacts of smoke & polluted air, and for providing overall respiratory support.
Got Sick-Respiratory Specific is a great addition for the onset of URIs and other respiratory distress, as it seems to act rapidly and deeply. It's also very effective in combination with Nourishing Lung. My husband was developing a URI following surgery, and before calling the Dr for antibiotics, he opted to try using both tinctures, together with Got Sick regular formula. Significant improvement occurred within 12 hours and he was able to clear it without medication. Highest recommendation.

Thank you for letting us know how these worked for you!

Intolerance Complex

Helps some when eating dairy or gluten on a occasional basis. Have purchased several bottles over the past few years.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.
