Yerba Santa - Asthma attacks
Common Names: Bear's Weed, Mountain Balm, Gum Plant, Consumptive Weed, Tar Weed.
Parts Used: Whole herb
From the Spanish language we have the name Yerba Santa, or, as we would say in English "Herb Saint". This herb of the high desert mountains in the desert southwest of the U.S., with its gray-white miniature trumpet flowers, has long been revered by the Spanish community as a life-saving lung herb. The clean refreshing scent and taste of Yerba Santa Pure Herbs Liquid Extract immediately suggest the relief it affords for removing mucus, draining fluid from lungs and their restoration to normal function.
Yerba Santa Pure Herbs Extract can be taken internally, 40 to 80 drops per day, or hourly as needed for relief. For serious cases of mucus and or fluid in the lungs, open capsules of 100 i.u. Vitamin E and rub into the areas of the chest and upper back. Soak a single layer of absorbent gauze or cheese cloth with Yerba Santa Pure Herbs Liquid Extract and lay one layer over chest and one layer over the upper back. Then cover with plastic sandwich wrap and finally, a cloth wrap around the body or a T-shirt to hold all in place. Finally, take a plastic trash can liner and make holes for the head and arms. Pull this over the head and wear like a night shirt. Cover up warm and sweat it out. Change the application morning and night. Wash the area and allow to dry before applying a fresh application.
During the sweating out period, give Yarrow Tea as a drink, 1 cup per hour, while awake. Prepare by the usual method of tea making by putting 1 rounded teaspoon full of the dry herb in a cup of hot water and let steep (set) for 3 or more minutes, then strain through a paper coffee filter, or put 1 teaspoon full of Yarrow Pure Herbs Liquid Extract in a cup or water for an instant tea.
For additional helpful herbs to remove mucus and fluid from the lungs: apply to the skin of the chest and back Herbal Adj. Pure Herbs Liquid Extract (Adjustment), Oil of Cajeput Pure Herbs Liquid Extract and Pleurisy Root Pure Herbs Liquid Extract to remove fluid from lungs and break up congestion.
Caution: Do not get Oil of Cajeput Pure Herbs Liquid Extract or Herbal Adj. Pure Herbs Liquid Extract in the eyes, on underarm area or on private areas as they cause a burning sensation (not blistering) and it could be alarming if you don't know no actual damage is being done.
DOSE: To breathe easier, take 40 to 80 drops 3-4 times per day or hourly, if needed. For other uses, as given above.
Directions on label: For adults, mix 2 ml of extract in 2 oz (60 ml) of water one time daily preferably with a meal
