That is why, it is often used in the treatment of bronchitis and other diseases.
Fighting with Chronic and Allergic Bronchitis
For effective treatment of the chronic bronchitis, you need a few good recipes. So, take a look at one of these.
Preparation of the recipes begins with the preparation of components. To do this, you need about four pieces of ledum, about two parts of oregano and one part of the leaves of the nettle (obligatorily dioecious). In addition, prepare one part of the birch buds.
The preparation begins with a thorough grinding of all the ingredients and herbs. After, they must be mixed with each other and thoroughly boiled. The calculation is taken the following: for every two tablespoons of the mixture, you need to cook about 17 oz of the boiling water. To use as follows: one third of a cup three times a day, be sure after eating.
To combat the allergic bronchitis, a recipe is used with several other herbs. Prepare the following components: about five tablespoons of licorice root (pre-crushed thoroughly), the tripartite beggar-ticks and the nettle leaves (also dioecious), two tablespoons of each. In addition, two or three tablespoons, for cooking:
- elecampane (high) root;
- leaves of the plantain;
- calamus root;
- flowers of the oregano and the violet.
And for the wild camomile and the yarrow grass will require three tablespoons of everyone.
The abundant variety of herbs is explained by the fact that allergic bronchitis is a very difficult disease; so many different components are needed to overcome it. Preparing of this medicine is much easier. To do this, it is sufficient to grind all the listed components and mix with each other. Then, every two tablespoons of the mixture are pouring with 17 oz of the boiling water. Infuse the remedy for two hours, wrapped it in a blanket or a towel. Take, like in the first case three times a day after eating, about one-third of a cup of medicine.

For this, it is necessary to take about one ounce of the ledum and 0.5 ounces of the chopped nettle (this time, the stinging-nettle).
