 Herbal Medicine: Bronchitis Acute 
 

Tussilago: Verbascum: Plantago: Cetraria: Trigonella: Sticta: Althaea : Pulmonaria

One possible prescription: Demulcent tea for acute dry cough (acute tracheobronchitis)

Verbascum thapsus
Tussilago
farfara
Althaea officinalis
Pimpinella
anisum --- --- --- equal parts. 2 teaspoonfuls to a cup of boiling water.

Infuse for 20 minutes. Drink hot several times a day.

This first possible combination, given by Dr. Weiss in Herbal Medicine, is in the form of an infusion, partly for the benefits of increasing fluid intake. It supplies the following actions:
Pulmonaries (Verbascum thapsus, Tussilago farfara)
Expectorant-relaxing
(Verbascum thapsus, Tussilago farfara, Althaea officinalis, Pimpinella anisum)
Demulcent (
Verbascum thapsus, Tussilago farfara, Althaea officinalis)
Anti-spasmodic (Pimpinella anisum)
Anti-microbial (Pimpinella anisum)
Anti-inflammatories (Verbascum thapsus, Tussilago farfara, Althaea officinalis, Pimpinella anisum)
Anti-catarrhals
(Verbascum thapsus, Tussilago farfara, Althaea officinalis)

Another approach would increase the stimulating expectorant component, which is more appropriate for stages of this condition that are characterized by excessive sputum production.

One possible prescription: To promote expectoration, in sub-acute &chronic bronchitis:
Primula veris root
Thymus vulgaris
Tussilago
farfara --- --- --- equal parts. 2 teaspoonfuls to a cup of boiling water.

Infuse for 20 minutes. Drink hot 3 times a day.

This combination supplies the following actions:

Pulmonaries (Tussilago farfara)
Expectorant
: relaxant (Tussilago farfara)
: stimulant (
Primula veris)
Demulcent (Tussilago farfara)
Anti-spasmodic
(Primula veris, Thymus vulgaris)
Anti-microbial
(Thymus vulgaris)
Anti-inflammatories (
Tussilago farfara)
Anti-catarrhals
(Tussilago farfara)

An alternative, yet equivalent, mixture is one that replaces the Thymuswith Pimpinella. The way this has been done will increase the stimulating expectoration generated by the saponin rich Primula.

Another prescription: To promote expectoration, in sub-acute & chronic bronchitis:
Primula veris --- --- --- 2 parts
Pimpinella anisum --- --- --- 1 part
Tussilago farfara --- --- --- 1 part -- -- -- 2 teaspoonfuls of combination to a cup of boiling water. Infuse for 20 minutes.


Drink hot 3 times a day.
