I have a family that has asthma, and lung weakness it seems. My 2 year old suddenly was congested, with no previous cold. I gave him 6 drops of Lobelia, and he was breathing easy and went to sleep! I also gave him Herbs for kids Oregon Grape Root, Sambucol, and a respiratory formula. He is better already and this is only day 3 of treatment. Lobelia is very powerful, and it doesnt take much to work. Easier than Nebulizer treatments!
Works great for coughing

I cant give this 5 stars because I used this 1 tsp every 2 hours on my son, and he just wasnt giving enough improvement in his cold, until I swithced to another immune booster. But I will say it is excellent forcoughing. It stops it pretty fast. I give it for coughing and croup. Also I think if you used it daily to prevent illness, it would help. MAKE YOUR OWN SYRUP LIKE THIS!!!!!!!!! Put 4 cups water and 2 cups dried elderberries in the crockpot on Warm. Heat in crockpot for 24 to 36 hours on warm. Mash and strain berries out. Cool. Add: 1.7 oz bottle of Echinamide, a bottle (100 capsules) of NOW brand Propolis (empty them into the syrup), 1 cup Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 cup Raw Honey, and Nutribiotic Grapefruit Seed Extract 20 drops. Store in Refrigerator till cool. Dosages are 1 Tablespoon for Adult Matenience, and 1 T. every two hours when sick. Children ages 6-12 2 tsp per day to prevent, and 2 tsp every 2 hours when sick. Children ages 1-5 1 tsp per day to prevent and 1 tsp every two hours when sick. This works out to around 4.00 for an 8 oz jar of syrup
This is one of the cheapest and most effective remedies for any cold or infection. The secret is the DOSE!

I take 2-3 capsules of NOW propolis and 1,000-2,000 mg of Vitamin C every 2 hours. IT works, I tell you. I just did 2 caps propolis with 1 gram of C every 2 hours aprox and almost completly prevented my cold from happening. I have very minor symptoms. You can use this for mastitis, bronchitis, flu, anything. I have given propolis to my 2-3 year old daughter in applesauce for cold/croup. This product is really good. Also, be sure to take this dose for 3-4 days or more to make sure you are over the cold or whatever!!
Alternative to Oreganol

This is a good quality product I have researched this product and contacted the company. NOW brand is a trustworthy company. Gathered in eastern Mediterranean region, mainly in Turkey, it contains minimum of 55% carvacrol AND typicly less than 1% thymol! WOW! And look at the price, dirt cheap compared to paying 36-40 dollars for Oreganol. The maximum dosage for an adult would be 4 drops 4x daily of this product for no more than 2 weeks at a time. This would be a very heavy dosage for a serious infection. This dose should only be used no more than 2 weeks at a time, it is too hard on your body. Most colds and flus will probably respond to 2 drops 4x daily for an adult. I contacted the company to find out the average carvacrol, will update later when I find out the information. This is the pure essential oil so only small dosages can be used...Aprox 15.6 mg Carvacrol in every drop. DO NOT OVERDOSE on this.
THis helps me sooo much

I am taking 3 of these a day and I have only been taking them about 2 weeks or so. I can already tell something is different. I am not having as much anxiety, worry, and more calm and able to handle situations. This is a potent product! *UPDATE* I am on my 3-4th bottle of these, and I quit them for almost 2 days. WHOA! I started getting uptight with my kids, I started getting impatient and irrated with almost everybody, I thought, I need my fish oil. I went back on my fish oil today again, and I feel calm, more collected, and in a much better mood! These totally work! And they smell like LEMONS, you will get NO FISH BURPS AT ALL! UPDATE******** I used these 3 a day during pregnancy and I had a very very smart and healthy little girl!! I am on 4 a day now and I am preparing to concieve, God WIlling. Wonderful stuff! 2ed update, this product used to be excellent, but unfortuntly something happened. This is the 2ed bottle that has turned rancid. Only this time the bottle turned rancid and the capsules opened within a couple weeks of recieving my order from another company. I think they are having problems with manufacturing this product. I am trying to find another enteric coated fish oil I can afford!
This is the natural alternative to Prozac!

I absolutly cannot function without PlusEPA. Ive tried cheaper brands of fish oils and PlusEPA really works! 2 or 3 a day! Update: I went off of these for a while and took Omega 3 Joy. It is cheaper, but doesnt work quite as well I dont think. I went back on these after going off of Omega3 Joy and trying Omega 3 Mood again. So about 6-7 weeks after starting PlusEPA and upping my dosage to 3 per day, I am feeling happier, my OCD is more under control, and I think it helps anxiety some too. I am hoping to go on this at 4 per day for Postpartum depression, God willing. This stuff works

I ordered a bottle of this and I have high hopes for it being a subsitute for Herbal Respiratory by Mountain Meadow herbs. The price is excellent because you dont take much per serving. ALso you can give this to children. I called the company head quarters for the United States and she said it is great for children. UPDATE: Yes these work! Plan to use this product this winter for any colds coughs congestion breathing problems. Its easy to adminster, its potent, it works!!!! Can be used for kids 2 and up!!!!! UPDATE: Yes, this works! I just use the adult dosage and scale it down according to weight sort of, for my children ages 3 to 9 and my husband. I often combine it with Echinaforce. It is cost effective also!

My husband started with a runny nose and a scratchy throat, and I gave him aproxamitly 18 tablets a day, 3 tablets an average of every 3 hours as the directions say. WOW, it halted the cold in its tracks. I treated him about 2 1/2- 3 days at aprox 18 tabs/day. The secret with this working, is that you have to RELIGIOUSLY take these 3 TABLETS EVERY 3 HOURS FROM THE TIME YOU WAKE UP TO THE TIME YOU GO TO SLEEP. Do exactly as it says!!!
