The green world abounds with gentle but effective plants that can help children's respiratory problems. Important examples are Coltsfoot, Mullein, Hyssop, Horehound, Wild Cherry Bark and Garlic. Herbal remedies can ease the discomfort of virus infections such as colds and the 'flu, treat the unpleasant symptoms, speed recovery and help prevent recurring infections. Aches and pains are common but can be relieved easily. Perhaps the best herb is Boneset, especially if there is a fever. A hot infusion drunk often will make life bearable in even the worse cases of 'flu. The bitter taste of Boneset is one of its therapeutic qualities, but not one children relish! Elder flower, Linden and Peppermint tea have a similar effect, not as strong, but they taste a lot better. For children that have a tendency to frequent colds, the body is hinting that the immune system needs help. Anti-microbial herbs such as Echinacea or Garlic and the tonics Cleavers or Nettles help prevent infections by increasing the vitality of immune system response. These may be combined in capsules, or as tinctures. Garlic in food or as the oil in a capsule would be most beneficial.
