MULLEIN FOR NATURAL HEALING OF RESPIRATORY AND GUT HEALTH! – WENDY BLANCHARD, M.S., CHHC


I am always looking for new herbs and homeopathy to try for myself, and to use with my clients. I visited the local farmer’s market this past Sunday, and stopped at the ORGO Farm https://www.instagram.com/orgofarms20/stand where Nick had organic veggies, meats, poultry, farm fresh eggs, and a wealth of info on an herb I’d never heard of, Wildcrafted Mullein, which was hand picked at his farm, and ready to be sold at the Farmer’s Market. He explained to me the phenomenal benefits of this herb, including clearing mucous from the lungs and aiding in healing inflammation which I immediately realized might be a wonderful preventative measure to avoid contracting the COVID19 virus, and of course, post inflammation treatment, and so I thought I’d try it.  I put a heaping tablespoon of these leaves into hot water as a tea. You can steep it for about 5-7 minutes. It taste’s just like green tea, and I also added in organic mint leaves! So refreshing hot or cold, and so soothing.

There are so many benefits to this amazing find!

It has a long history of traditional use for a wide range of respiratory disorders, such as bronchitis, dry cough, certain strains of pneumonia, colds, flu, asthma and in clearing out mucous from the lungs, to speed up wound healing, to ease rheumatic pain/arthritis, recovery from addictions, and for hemorrhoids!

It is also a wonderful natural treatment for digestive health!

“The mucus busting benefits of Mullein don’t stop at clearing mucus from the lungs, it can also be used to remove the mucoid layer from the small intestine. Too much mucus in the small intestine can interfere with nutrient uptake and compromise the body’s ability to deliver nutrients into the bloodstream.

Mullein replaces the “bad” mucus with a healing mucilage that coats and soothes the gut wall and provides lubrication that enables an easier and smoother bowel movement.”

Other benefits include that Mullein possesses potent antibacterial qualities, and may help to heal ear infections, support respiratory health and has beneficial minerals, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, and selenium.

Look for Mullein at your local health food store, farmers market, or on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Frontier-Mullein-Sifted-ORGANIC-package/dp/B00IYBOZ80

Mullein is also available in a tincture.

“Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Isolated incidents of contact dermatitis – always do a patch test before using on the skin.

Do not use Mullein if you are taking anti-diabetic or diuretic medication.”
