First of all i would like to make it clear that herbal remedies are not a substitute but rather an enhancement of modern medicine and are intended to help with symptoms and aide in the bodies own ability to heal. Also if you have any alergies you should be careful about what you take. the below herbs are easy to find in stores dried and row fresh in your own garden. the most common way to use the below herbs is to steep (let soak in boiled water) for 10 minutes and then remove the herb and add some honey as you like and drink as a tea.
