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.
