Burdock is very powerful for upper respiratory problems such as asthma and bronchitis. It will bring almost immediate relief to those who expereince frequent respiratory problems. A friend of mine has suffered from bronchitis on and off for several years. She tried the recipe for cooking the burdock and was completely amazed at how quickly it cleared up her constant cough. Now she is a true believer of this remedy!
Burdock is often prepared as tea but cooked as well. Below are some intructions:
