At this immune-challenging time of year, it’s good to know herbs like thyme make one of the most useful choices for immune system support. Especially for Winter post-illness recovery. It is useful for both chronic situations as well as for acute infections. Coughs, Flu, bronchitis, pneumonia…. The list is endless for an array of bacterial, viral and fungal issues. It is particularly useful where the condition has associated issues of lung congestion as it is a ‘warming’ expectorant e.g. bronchitis, cough, asthma. [It works partly due to the ‘thymol’ but also many other bio-chemicals in its essential oil-rich makeup]
Recent trials (2014) show it can help with pain relief comparable to ibuprofen. The trial focused on period pain as it relieves muscle cramps. Whilst 1990 studies remind us that it is a profound all-round tonic, helping support the body’s ‘normal’ functioning.
