HAVING RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS? MULLEIN, IS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN ANTIBIOTICS & NO SIDE EFFECTS

One of the many wonderful healing herbs that grow wild as a “weed,” Mullein is very effective at clearing mucous in the lungs, cleansing the bronchial tubes and soothing inflammation in the respiratory tract. The leaves and the flowers can be used to make teas, or tinctures to help clear these infections.

If you suffer from excess mucous, or fluid in the lungs, any mainstream doctor will give you a course of antibiotics that will strip your gut flora and leave you with long term side effects, a spiral of ill health and repeat visits to hospital.

Mullein

The mullein plant is native to northern Africa, Asia and Europe, and was brought to the Americas and Australia.

Mullein is known by many different names: Aaron’s rod, Adam’s flannel, Indian tobacco, Jacob’s staff, Jupiter’s staff, Peter’s staff, Blanket Leaf, Bullock’s Lungwort, Cow’s Lungwort, Feltwort, Hare’s Beard, Lady’s Foxglove, Mullein Leaf, and many more names

Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is a common weed that has long been used in herbal medicine, especially in remedies that aim to soothe the respiratory tract. These remedies involve the use of mullein’s flowers and leaves.

Antimicrobial: Mullein has shown antimicrobial activity against strains of Staphylococcus aureus and Trichophyton mentagrophytes. The antibacterial activity of mullein was observed with Klebsiella pneumonia, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Escherichia coli.

How it works: Mullein contains a mucilaginous substance that swells and becomes slippery as it absorbs water, and this may account for at least some of its soothing action, whilst at the same time its saponin-bearing constituents and volatile oils cause it to have a cleansing action on the lungs.

Health Benefits

Certain compounds in mullein’s leaves and flowers are thought to act as demulcents or expectorants. Demulcents are substances that calm irritation, or inflammation in the skin or internal parts of the nose, mouth, or throat. Expectorants are agents for stimulating the production or secretion of phlegm.

In some cases, mullein is applied directly to the skin to help treat burns or inflammatory skin conditions. Mullein oil is also used in ear drops for the treatment of ear infections.

In lab tests published in 2002, researchers found that mullein helped kill certain types of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus (the most common cause of staph infections) and Escherichia coli (or E. coli). Herbalists typically use mullein to address the following health problems:

  • Upper respiratory tract infections
  • Coughs
  • Bronchitis
  • Asthma

The use of mullein to treat any condition is not well-supported by scientific data. However, preliminary research suggests that mullein shows promise for use in the treatment of the following conditions:

Flu

In test-tube research, mullein has been found to fight flu-causing viruses. However, since the flu can lead to serious illnesses such as pneumonia, it’s critical to seek medical attention when experiencing flu symptoms (rather than attempting to self-treat the condition).

Ear infections

In a 2003 study of 171 children with otalgia (ear pain or an earache), those who used ear drops containing mullein (along with garlic, Calendula, St. John’s wort, lavender, vitamin E, and olive oil) had a statistically significant improvement in ear pain over the course of three days. In fact, those who were given ear drops alone had a better response than those who were given ear drops together with amoxicillin.

Possible Side Effects

Although there are no known adverse effects associated with the use of mullein, it’s important to educate yourself about supplement safety before using any herb.

Supplements haven’t been tested for safety and due to the fact that dietary supplements are largely unregulated, the content of some products may differ from what is specified on the product label. Also keep in mind that the safety of supplements in pregnant women, nursing mothers, children, and those with medical conditions or who are taking medications have not been established. 

What to Look For

Tinctures, capsules, lozenges, powders, and ear drops containing mullein are found in many health food stores.

Due to the limited research, it’s too soon to recommend mullein as a treatment for any condition. If you’re considering using it, talk to your doctor to weigh the potential risks and benefits. Keep in mind that alternative medicine should not be used as a substitute for standard care. Self-treating a condition and avoiding or delaying standard care may have serious consequences.

Dr Sebi

If you are familiar with Dr. Sebi, he believed that all health ailments were caused by excess mucous. He did great work and healed many people from “incurable” illnesses. He is greatly missed in the holistic community.

According to Aqiyl Aniys, of Alkaline Plant based Diet:

“Dr. Sebi’s theory of healing revolved around alkalizing the body and removing excess mucus from the body to support health and vitality. I adopted a plant based diet and followed this nutritional guide to alkalize my body and remove mucus from it.

I haven’t been sick in two years since I started following his methodology, not a headache, the flu, not even a cold. Though mullein leaf has been used to remove mucus from the body, specifically mucus from the lungs, I used mullein leaf to help remove mucus from my small intestine.

The alternative medicine theory is the increasing intake of toxin laden acidic foods and dairy compromises the small intestine and lines it with a harmful mucus layer. The small intestine’s job is to absorb nutrients from food traveling from the stomach into the small intestine, and then passes the nutrients into the bloodstream through its wall.

The consumption of toxic foods and dairy promotes an acidic environment in the body and causes a harmful mucoid lining to develop in the intestine, which makes it difficult for nutrients to pass through its wall and feed the body.”

Watch this interview with Dr Sebi on the Rock Newman show just before he died. He was not afraid to speak out and was a fountain of knowledge on many things that went against the mainstream. He will be truly missed.

About the Author

Amanda-Mary
With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.

I hope you enjoy our blog site and the articles we labor over for your benefit. Please donate to the cause on the page above, as we do not receive a penny in advertising, or sponsorship. It is all from the heart.

Love and light.
