Croup is a situation where a particular bacterial infestation coupled with an irritation of the Throat sets up a distinctive Cough that can be frightening and seems to build upon itself and not reach any sort of end on its own. The cough itself further irritates the lining of the throat and this accounts for it continuing with out resolution.

Family Flu Mix
This mixture evolved over the years as the all purpose flu remedy in my own family's file at the clinic. By the time my kids had worked their way through every variation of viral and bacterial infection an all purpose mixture had evolved in the file which deals with all manner and combinations of bronchial, throat, sinus and ear infections.
Herbs: The herbal mix includes - Yarrow, Rosehips, Garlic, Fenugreek, Echinacaea, Ginger, Thyme, Nettle and Liquorice along with the Bach Flowers Olive and Chestnut Bud.

Pleurisy Infection
Pleurisy is a particular infection, which involves the pleural lining, which is the slippery membrane within which the lungs slide inside the chest as they inflate and deflate. A patch of infection can result in the lung and the lining being fused together temporarily resulting in sharp pain whenever the patient takes a larger than normal breath.

Whooping Cough
Whooping Cough is a situation where a particular bacterial infestation coupled with an irritation of the Bronchiales sets up a deep and painful Cough that is very frightening and seems to build upon itself and not reach any sort of end on its own. The cough itself further irritates the linings of the Bronchiales and this accounts for it continuing with our resolution.
