Respiratory Rescue Tincture - 2 oz, 4 oz
The herbs in this formula have all been used in traditional medicine throughout various cultures for respiratory and immune support. This tincture is custom-crafted by our friend and master herbalist Joshua Geetter at Medicine Ranch in Telluride, Colorado.
Osha Root (Ligusticum Porteri) is also known as “Bear Root”. Bears eat it to clear their lungs after hibernation. Osha root is corregated and brachiated strongly resembling the bronchi and bronchioles of the lungs. This “doctrine of signatures” representation of the lungs indicates its use for respiratory health. Echinacea Angustifolia is a traditional Western herbal respiratory and throat remedy. Goldenseal (Hydrastis Canadiensis) has high concentrations of the broad-spectrum antibiotic “Berberine”. Goldenseal is traditionally combined with Echinacea for acute respiratory care. Elecampane root is a traditional respiratory tonic. Honey is antibiotic, nutritive and demulcent. Glycerine is demulcent.
Traditional Actions and Indications: Traditional actions of these herbs would include decongestant, expectorant, antifebrile, antibiotic and antiviral. These herbs in combination would have traditional indications for treating cold, flu, allergies, asthma, and acute and chronic respiratory distress.
Cautions and Contraindications: Caution in pregnancy (Osha). Discontinue if stomach upset, skin rash or allergic reaction.
Herbalist Note: A large part of clinical practice in Telluride has to do with respiratory healthcare. The Osha root is one of the finest traditional medicinals of the Telluride region. We ethically wild-craft the Osha root from around the mountain range. The Echinacea and Elecampane are grown in our gardens and sourced from trusted herbalists in Oregon. The Goldenseal also comes from our trusted colleagues on the West Coast. Our honey is local and Organic. The Glycerine is west Coast. All ingredients are Organic and of the highest quality. The formula has shown great clinical results with no deleterious side effects in over ten years of use.
Dosage: The Respiratory rescue is safe to take up to 4 full droppers from 1 to 6 times daily.
