The Post-Nasal Drip Regimen
Post Nasal Drip is associated with the excessive production of mucus by the nasal mucosa, which can then accumulate at the back of the throat, or in the nasal cavity, causing difficulties in breathing and other associated concerns. We know that the big culprits of Post-Nasal Drip tend to be acid producing foods, dairy products, tomatoes and potatoes and a moderate intake of these foods would be helpful. I set out below my recommended regimen:
Firstly, I would recommend the use of Marshmallow Capsules; take between one and three capsules a day. Marshmallow contains ‘mucilages’, which are long chain molecules that work to soothe and calm the inflamed mucus membranes and work very effectively at reducing the amount of mucus produced by the respiratory tract.
Secondly, I recommend the use of Plantago Tincture; take 15 drops three times a day in water. Plantago works to help break down the bonds that form mucus and thus eases its expulsion as well as having mild antibacterial properties, which prevent the mucus from getting infected. This is a major problem that often results in the prolonging of this concern and often antibiotics are prescribed to help clear the infection.
It might also be prudent to use Ivy Thyme Complex; again take 15 drops two or three times a day in water. This specific tincture works for coughs and bronchitic conditions, but has also been found to help a lot of people with asthma as Ivy extracts soothe the lining of the respiratory tract. Asthma attacks are often triggered when inflammation occurs in the respiratory tract.
