I can get hayfever quite badly, particularly around grass pollen time.  This year I`ve found what seems to be a great remedy called Fenugreek and Thyme :yeah:.  I take 2 capsules, three or four times a day, but will probably be able to scale back once the grass pollen settles down.

 

Better and probably twice as effective than my usual anti-histamines, which I`ve been able to shelve for now! B)

 

I already posted this up at KvR but thought some fellow renoisers might benefit/be interested

 

 

 

Note: I`ve read this may not be a good remedy if you have diabetic issues as it can effect blood sugar, and also pregnant women should avoid it too.

It's also an amazing treatment against infection in the sinus (ehm, and I'm not talking audio here..). 

 

Got this tip once, basically crush fresh fenugreek and turn it into a paste with lukewarm water. Then append it in a bandage to the forehead. 

It somehow is able to enter through the skin, and as a result you will absolutely smell like a curry meal.

But since alternative is usually antibiotics, for me, there's really not much question there.

Whoa herbalist actions going on here.

 

Gargling very strong tea from fresh salvia leaves (please use "salvia officinalis" from your garden center, not "salvia divinorum" from the headshop which you better take additional care with...) as soon as I sense a tickle in the throat when I have a cold or flu - has prevented me from sore throat ever since.

 

It not smell like curry though, rather like...some kind of rancid natural soap, and will also taske like...

Nice tip!  Fenugreek is certainly some good stuff!  Sounds worth smelling like curry if it does the trick :) I also read in some of the Amazon reviews that some people were using the Fg + Thyme for sinus infections too.  Black Seed oil and Oregano oil are also supposed to be pretty good at clearing infections, though oregano is some pretty strong stuff.. even if mixed with olive oil I have to be careful of stomach upset.

Definitely been doing some herbalist research here.  All started with a nasty bout of chronic fatigue which the doc couldn`t help me with. In the end some stuff to help was Magnesium and Iodine supplements, but best of all was a blend of medicinal mushrooms: Reishi, Shiitake and Maitake.  A couple of capsules a day of that stuff has worked miracles for energy, focus and sleeping well!  Only side effect seems to be very vivid dreams, but magnesium can apparently contribute to that too.

 

Salvia tea sounds cool, bar the rancid soap element! I`ll add it to my reading list.

 

 

I have this problem, too, and it increases from year to year... I wonder where I can get this in Germany? Never used anti-histamines so far...

 

This is the brand I use.  It seems to be available on Amazon.de.  Sometimes I have ordered from the U.S. with just a longer wait on shipping:

You can also drink the weaker tea like normal tea if you like, also from dried leaves, you can get it in evey tea section of the grocery stores here. Normally sold out in the flu periods. Then it won't taste so bitter/metallic, it will then taste rather very herbalistic. Goes well with ginger, citrus, mint, which also can aid a bit with flus. It is said that ppl have to take care when pregnant or with liver problems, not to drink or at least not too much of it. But I found years ago the bought tea won't offer the same effect against sore throat, since I was using the strong brew from the garden, and gargling it instead of drinking, and it seems to have much better effect.

 

edit: talking about salvia officinalis...

Could be worth getting a windowbox of the stuff, grow it over the summer and have it ready for flu season.  Got some ginger tea about so could maybe add some leaves to that.

yeah, why not. The very same sage leaves can also be used to create interesting mediterranian dishes. Happy gardening.

You can buy very cheap fenugreek seeds from Indian/Pakistani food shops and thyme too, but you should be able to find that anywhere.

Wondered about doing a home brew, but have been a bit lazy to try, probably would work out way cheaper though..

I actually just ordered a bunch of seeds a couple of weeks ago and got me a little herb grow set from IKEA, so i hope i can manage to plant some of my own.

I want to grow liquorice too, but i don't have all the space in the world, but it should also be good for throat and such, in addition to tasting delicious. I have no idea about fenugreek seeds though, maybe those could work in my IKEA thingy?

 

I do occationally hunt for chaga in the birch forests, though i have been a bit lazy doing that after my bike was stolen. If you haven't heard of chaga i can tell you that it contains the highest concentration of anti oxidants in any natural thing on earth. It has been proven to be used by people more than 5000 years ago, most likely as a remedy and it's also been scientifically proven to have beneficial properties. I've heard of people with anemia been cured by drinking chaga tea. 

It's actually mushroom, or rather a part of a mushroom. You see it on birch trees, mostly on older trees and it appears like a black coalish tumor on the tree. It's actually not the fruitbody we see, because it doesn't spread spores through it. You can sometimes hit it off with a hammer, but it doesn't always fall off that easy, so knife, saw, crowbar, axe and hammer is nice to bring along. You should remove all the black and then you're left with a yellowish spongy substanse similar to wine cork. You should chop it into pieces before it dries because then it becomes very hard and difficult to chop up. Put a couple of pieces in a pot, pour water on it and let it boil for as long as you like and drink it. Drink looks almost like coffee and a sweet taste like how freshly cut birch smells mixed with prunes.

When I mentioned homebrewing Fenugreek and thyme, I was just reffering to your idea of buying the ingredients and mixing them up, growing yourself would definitely be a more genuine homebrew!  I`m sure you could get something going in your ikea set.
 
re. Chaga I`ve just added some to my vitamins regimen.  After having such success with Shiitake/ Reishi / Maitake mushrooms I thought I`d add some Chaga, as like you say it`s supposed to have a load of benefits too.  I`m pretty sold on medicinal mushrooms as I`d tried a lot of remedies which didn`t really live up to hype, but the mushrooms in particular have worked great!

Interesting about the properties of that mushroom. I think I might have seen it without knowing what it is, in northern germany. Normally in the woods my eyes look down, for stuff like woodruff or ramsom. And also as to not to step into poo of some dog or wild animal. Mushrooms aren't so well for me, after a peculiar incident with chewing too many of not so legal ones I cannot stand the taste anymore...

 

And not forget to take proper care of any stuff from the wild because of worms. Srsly. Dogs get their pill annually. Because they keep sticking their nose into stuff from the wild where they can catch them.

pretty ironic really, how nature can be illegal...

Chaga is one exception that do not taste like mushroom at all, just a nice tea with a tree sap like taste. 

I have read some about those shiitakes and other 'medical' mushrooms, thought about trying it many times, but haven't gotten to yet.

The capsules seem nice because i may also have had a bit of the mushroom oopslfly is referring to. Haha, mushroom capsules reminds me of a certain incident at Rosklde festival 2001.  :badteeth:

Oh, Ikea sells a led grow set. Cute thing. It looks small, you will have to work out a clever harvesting/pruning scheme for many species for it to work out on the long run by keeping the plants small.

 

Shiitake you can also "grow" yourself, I've once had the chance to see someone doing it in very successful fashion once. If you have access to a garden or something of that kind. I belive the right location, amount of shelter and direction from wall to the sun is important, also I think to remember you have to put straw on the setup in very cold winters. You infuse oak stem parts with a certain diameter and aging, and after 2 years if everything went well you should be able to annualy harvest more shiitake than you could ever eat until the oak stems are exhausted. It is supposed to taste very good in asian dishes.

I'll mostly use the set for smaller herbs and sallads and such, maybe plants like thymus, estragon, lemon balm, mint and such could work, but i guess i'll have to harvest and sprout new seeds now and then.

 

It's looking quite cool with all these tiny sprouts sticking up, i guess they're already eatable the way they are now, but i think i prefer to wait for the leaves to show up.

I actually have read a lot about shiitake and other mushrooms you can grow quite easily, like oyster mushrooms and other three loving species. I actually also may have quite bit of experience growing some mushrooms myself, but that was more of the OoopslFly kind. :D

There is also a kind of mushroom that i can't recall the name of, but you could grow it in water (i don't remember, but i think there was some sugar or honey or some other sweetening added, as mushrooms feed on carbs, not water) and then you were supposed drink this water. I tasted it myself once and it actually kind of tasted like apple juice believe it or not. It was also supposed to have many benefits. Once you got a culture of it you could basically keep it forever cutting pices of it and put in clean water (with the added carbs).
