Echinacea for colds & flu

echinacea

Echinacea purpurea

USES Immune stimulant, Colds, Flu, Infections.

The Echinacea herb is one of the most popular herbs used in Europe. It is considered to be the prime remedy for the Immune system and this view has been supported by extensive research.

HOW IT WORKS Echinacea works principally by stimulating a group of cells in the Immune system known as the macrophages. These cells have the unique ability to ‘eat’ matter foreign to the body, such as viruses, bacteria and other particles entering the body.

Stimulating the Immune system in this way improves the way the body handles infections, when viruses and bacteria do damage to invade the body. Clinical trials have shown that Echinacea can improve the symptoms of cold and flu, shortening the course of the illness in over 80% of people.

Herbal remedies for IBS

tormentil

Tormentil aka Bloodroot is one of the best herbal remedies for IBS

USES Bowel inflammation, IBS, diarrhoea

DESCRIPTION The Tormentil herb is a member of the Rose family. It can be found all over Europe, growing in wild woods, moors and grassy pieces of ground.

HOW IT WORKS Tormentil has a high tannin content, which gives it a distinct astringent action on the digestive tract. Tannins bind to the proteins present in the irritated lining of the bowel, forming a layer, which soothes and provides a barrier against infective organisms and toxins. They also slow down the frequency of bowel motions, encouraging the healing of an inflamed bowel.
