Reduce upper respiratory tract disorders with ivy and thyme
Ivy and thyme are two of the most studied herbs in Germany where herbal medicines are more frequently prescribed than synthetic drugs, than any other country. In Germany, ivy and thyme are routinely prescribed for colds, flu, asthma and upper respiratory tract infection. Synthetic drugs most often treat the symptoms and not the cause, and when the symptoms are actually part of the healing process.
When we have a cough or a cold, we should not try to suppress the symptoms. The cough is a symptom of the healing process encouraging the release of phlegm and mucus. Synthetic drugs inhibit and poison the system while natural ingredients like thyme and ivy encourage a harmony within the system to make a cough more productive. These herbs are both expectorants and mucolytic in their activity. They reduce the severity and duration of a cold, flu and asthma. The number one German formula is now available in the United States either in tablet form or as a liquid to be taken by children as young as 2 or 3 years of age and adults.
TODAY'S WORD From Joel and Victoria
God's Deepest Secrets
Who do you share your deepest secrets with? Most people only share their inner thoughts with those who are closest to them. People they trust. People they’ve gone through experiences with. Do you know who God share’s His secrets with? This passage goes on to say, “Who can know a man’s thoughts except his own spirit?” In other words, God’s Spirit knows His thoughts. As believers, His Spirit lives inside of us, revealing to us the heart and thoughts of God Himself.
God wants you to know what He thinks about you. He wants you to know about the plans He has for you. He wants to show you things you’ve never seen, heard about or even imagined. As a believer in Jesus, you are His child, but you are also His friend. He wants you as His closest companion. He wants to walk with you, talk with you and share with you. What a wonderful, amazing thought—we can know God’s thoughts because we are one with Him. Open your heart and allow Him to share His deep secrets with you today.

"That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him." But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets." (1 Corinthians 2:9-10, NLT)
