Chamomile flowers 15gms
Elderflowers 15gms
Limeflowers 15gms
Yarrow 15gms
Boneset 5gms

The above amounts make 65 gms of herb, enough for as many treatments with 'sweating therapy' as needed and then the tea may still be drunk as a good immune health drink. The proportions are given so that a person can make more or less according to their needs or from what is available.


The dosage to have a pronounced effect is to pour one to two large cups of freshly boiled water over 3-6 hpd tsps, or about 4-8 grams of the herbs. Cover and allow to steep for at least 10 minutes, longer is ok too. When ready to drink it, strain and sip whilst hot.

The taste of this tea is strong but quite acceptable and there has been excellent feedback from many people as to how well it has helped to activate the immune system to break out of acute or chronic infections. It can be safely taken by anyone from any age.

Please understand that I cannot personally advise you without seeing you in my clinic.
This living 'book' is my labour of love so, wherever you are, I wish you peace & good health!
