The basis of herbal treatment for the flu up plants that can cause excessive sweating. The meaning of this event is twofold.
On the one hand, when sweatingtogether with the sweat out a large number of toxins, poisons, formed as a result of virus activity, and in the struggle of the body against infection. On the other hand, excessive sweating - is a sign of the action of anti-inflammatory agents such as aspirin. Everyone knows that aspirin is acetylsalicylic acid. The same anti-salicylates and contain herbs used in influenza.
As is known, anti-pill,Similar to aspirin, long-term or massive use can trigger the occurrence of gastric ulcers and a change in the formula of blood. In addition, there is a special kind of aspirin allergy, one of the terrible manifestation of which is aspirin-induced asthma.
The use of the anti-inflammatory plantcontaining salicylates, safer and more beneficial. Each of us can recall how his small, as a child my grandmother otpaivala decoction of raspberry leaf and lime blossom. These plants are the most known and popular among the people. And raspberry and linden contain salicylates. This group may include willow bark ( "a mother" aspirin), elder flowers, flowers, meadowsweet (spiraea), marsh cinquefoil root and other plants.
Cooking medicines from these plants at home very easily.
The flowers are steamed in a thermos for 12 - 1 hour. To do this, take 1 - 2 tablespoons of raw material, is poured into a thermos and pour a glass of boiling water.
The roots and bark pour boiling water for half an hour and allowed to stand for half an hour. Then simmer, but rather in a water bath for 20 - 30 minutes.
Willow is prepared at the rate of 1 teaspoon per cup of water, Potentilla 1 tablespoon per cup.
Take a decoction of herbs with anti-inflammatoryflu need small, frequent doses. For example, a decoction of linden blossom on two sips every hour. The better the condition, the less you need to take broths.
We treat a cough
If the flu begins to overcome cough, thenyou need to take herbal teas having enveloping properties. For example, the root of marshmallow, mallow forest, angelica drug, Iceland Moss thallus, licorice root.
These plants in the broth provide a large number of substances, soothing inflamed mucous membranes of the trachea and bronchi, forming a protective film on it.
Similar actions have rhizomes withthe roots of cyanosis blue. The winning of this plant is that it has sedative properties. This means good to give children the night that they slept themselves, and gave them to sleep caring for parents.
Well proven in the pediatricpractice bedrenets - saxifrage, exceptionally well interrupting prolonged paroxysmal cough. Used plant root that is used as a decoction or milk or as alcoholate (20 drops to a quarter cup of warm milk).
Paroxysmal cough nice treat broths dill seed, anise (who does not remember the baby drops with a pleasant smell), ammi tooth. Seeds brewed just like flowers.
I would like to note that in the flubeginning of the disease it is impossible to give a sage and other herbs of similar action. Reason: sage further dries the already dry inflammation of the upper respiratory tract. As a result, no improvement can be obtained, and the aggravation of coughing.
Bronchitis is a serious
Another thing, when the flu turns into bronchitis. This time you can count on the appearance of a deep dry cough with wheezing. Often this is accompanied by cough trudnootdelyaemoy greenish or yellowish sputum.
If you have this symptom, then add broth good expectorant herb. This creeping thyme, rosemary marsh, hyssop, mother - and - stepmother, a series of tripartite and so on.
Very good recipe, which combines in equalproportions thyme, rosemary and shoots thallus tsetrarii. Here there obovolakivayuschee, and anti-inflammatory, expectorant action. In addition, rosemary reduce allergy of the body and prevent the transfer of disease in obstructive bronchitis. The same mix will kill most microbes entering the bronchi and acquiring high activity against the backdrop of the flu.
A good expectorant and anti-allergic effects have Melilotus officinalis and Veronica officinalis. They are used in the form of decoctions of herbs.
It must be remembered that the clover isa potent tool. Therefore, it is better to use a part of fees, where its share is small. Or when welding alone to take 1 teaspoon of raw material to a glass of water.
Sweet clover is particularly indicated for the flu ifremember that he has the ability to lower the blood clotting activity. And we remember that the main link in the pathogenesis of influenza and other viral infections - a violation of capillary blood flow.
In order to strengthen the capillary walls into the wellcharges added yarrow, nettle, rue fragrant grass. The last plant is known to many, even if the name sounds unfamiliar. Remember Ascorutinum drug, which is given to strengthen the blood vessels. He just combines routines (prepared from rue fragrant) and ascorbic acid. Recommendation to drink with the flu as much acid (cranberry and cranberry) fruit drinks seeks to achieve this - to give your body as much as possible of ascorbic acid (vitamin C). It is known that vitamin C is not only reinforces the capillary wall, but also promotes the elimination of toxicity.
Prevention of influenza
We need to strengthen the immune To preventsystem. This can be used adaptogens - substances of vegetable or animal origin, and stimulating the immune system tonic. Adaptogens: ginseng, Eleutherococcus senticosus, Aralia Manchurian, devil's high, Rhodiola rosea, stonecrop purple and so on. They are taken in the form of alcoholate roots drops at a dose of 1 to 2 kg body weight, 3 times a day before meals.
The expression has antiviral propertieskopeechnik Siberia. Take it as a tincture or in the form of powders inside the root. They do this same ointment plants which treat herpes. It is a viral skin lesions, often accompanied by flu.
These adaptogens are good as the advance prevention. Apply them in the acute period is impossible.
