St Francis RespiraCleanse
Asthma and Chronic Cough
RespiraCleanse holds an important place in the treatment of coughs, whether they are dry, wet, irritating, spastic or asthmatic. RespiraCleanse is an excellent formula for bronchial conditions of a chronic or acute nature. The herbs of this formula have antispasmodic, expectorant and demulcent properties.
The ingredients have hundreds of years of traditional use behind them. Modern clinical and laboratory work confirms that they effectively promote lung health.
Some of the herbs in this formula act to relieve dry, spastic coughs, while others have their effect on wet, mucus-filled productive coughs or asthmatic coughs. Such a synergy of properties helps to make this an excellent all-around expectorant and anti-tussive for all types of coughs, whether of a chronic or acute nature.
Combinations to consider: For bronchial or respiratory infections, RespiraCleanse can be used in conjunction with Respirafect and/or EchinaSeal. For a chronic tendency to coughs, particularly in the case of individuals whose every cold goes to the lungs, consider this in conjunction with our Deep Immune and/or EchinAce formulas, which add long-term immune stimulation and prophylaxis.
Administration: (adults) take 30-60 drops (1-2 ml) 3X daily in a little water, on an empty stomach.

A NOTE ON TINCTURES
Tinctures are more readily absorbed by the body and have a high degree of bio-availability. As well, they have a long shelf life.
Sometimes people ask us why tinctures are alcohol-based. There are very good reasons. Alcohol is critically important in the extraction of an herb`s medicinal ingredients. It also helps to stabilize and preserve them. Alcohol is the ideal carrier substance, conveying the therapeutic goodness of the herb to the body. In itself, too, science has proven that alcohol enhances the immune system and its defences.
As for the amount of alcohol taken in an average dose of tincture, you`ll be surprised to learn that it`s about the same as what you`d find in an overly ripe banana!
Tinctures remain the most practical way to take advantage of the amazing, health-giving power of herbs.

I feel better than I have in years!
I was diagnosed with severe asthma and COPD after working for over 10 years in the barns of a large chicken factory/farm where I inhaled dust, dander, ammonia, methane and many other chemicals. I had to quit my job because of my illness in 2002. I was put on the inhaled steroid, Symbicourt, as well as Spiriva and Combivent. I developed many side effects from the steroid: painful muscle spasms, loose teeth, blurred vision, swollen legs. I wanted to get off the steroids but was unable to find another drug that I could tolerate as a safe replacement.
To improve my health we moved to an area with better air quality and a home that was environmentally very safe. Still I was unable to walk for more than 20 feet without needing to catch my breath and use my puffer. Life was depressing!
Then I heard that the previous owner of my new home had emphysema and that he had used some herbal products which helped him a great deal. He recommended Respirafect (Usnea Combo) and RespiraCleanse (Horehound Combo) herbal combinations from St. Francis Herb Farm. I decided to give them a try.
Because of the St. Francis Herb Farm herbal combinations, I was able to slowly wean myself off the Symbicourt and have felt much better ever since. I still have asthma and COPD but I can do so much more now than before. I now can actually walk around my yard and do a few things around the house. And best yet, all those nasty side effects from the steroids are gone. I feel better than I have in years!
Your products are AMAZING!
I had rhinoplasty a couple of months ago. Immediately after surgery I noticed I always had a stuffed feeling in my sinuses and I thought it was normal. I constantly had a greenish/yellowish mucus coming out of my nose and slowly I would cough it up. One month after the surgery I had a tickle in my throat and within a week I was coughing so long and so hard that chunks of bright red blood would come up with the phlegm. My doctor put me on a round of Amoxicillin. I hate antibiotics because I KNOW how they ravage my body... and they always lead to a yeast infection anyway.
After 10 days I noticed I still had that full feeling in my sinuses and I was still coughing... not as much, but I was still coughing. My doctor suggested another round of stronger antibiotics. I declined. I started doing daily sinus rinses with a saline solution. I would add a couple of drops of Goldenseal to the saline solution. I started gargling with salt water. It helped a little.
I went to a health food store and the lady recommended your Horehound Combo. I took three doses that day and three doses the next day. That next night I slept through the whole night and didn`t wake up ONCE to cough!!! I was amazed!!! I slacked on the Horehound Combo and the coughing came back. I am back on it now, and I am taking 3 or 4 doses if I can manage it, and it`s definitely helping with the coughing....
Your products are AMAZING! I`ve recommended Horehound Combo to a friend of mine who is complaining of the same sinus problems that I recently had. He will buy it today!
This past fall you provided incredible guidance that helped me avoid antibiotics and get through my first case of bronchitis with RespiraCleanse and Respirafect. Worked beautifully!
