How to Strengthen and Rejuvenate the Immune System with Yashtimadu

Headache Issue

We are headed into cold and flu season again and just like every year we want to protect and prevent ourselves from the viruses that make us sick. The symptoms of coughing, sneezing, congestion and sinus pressure, even in the mildest forms, disrupt our day-to-day life and make us feel miserable. 

But interestingly enough, flu season doesn't just happen only once a year or at the same time any longer. Now with so much worldwide business and leisure travel, viruses from all over the world are being shared and transported to all corners of the globe all the time. So now ‘flu season’ seems to happen 2-3 times each year depending on our immune response.

The immune system is our body’s set of organs, cells, and chemicals that fight off infectious viruses and harmful bacteria. Protecting our immune system is more important now than ever, during a global pandemic and its physical and mental effect that will be felt for years to come. And to this effect, we must ensure that our bodies are as strong as they can be so that we are less susceptible to infections and we have the ability to recover quicker.  

When we become sick, particularly from respiratory infections like the cold, flu or air pollution, the center of the respiratory system, the lungs, are the most impacted of the organs. When experiencing this stress, it’s important to promote regeneration and cleansing as quickly as possible through the intake of more oxygen through deeper breathing and with herbal medicines.  


Safeguarding the respiratory system is completely possible with ancient herbs. One of the best is Yashitmadu, also known as Licorice. Before Licorice was known as a spice, it was used as a medicine. It is known to be one of the most widely used herbs in Ayurveda and throughout Asia and Middle East, renowned for its antioxidant, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory effects. In strengthening the respiratory system, Yashitmadu promotes healthy functioning of bronchial channels, dislodging toxins and supporting the functioning of the nose and throat.  


When sick, Yashitmadu helps to ease congestion and coughing by helping to loosen the mucus in airways, making it an effective expectorant, where a cough feels more “productive.” It can help to relieve the “tight chest” feeling and difficulty breathing by helping the alveoli to release toxicity. But this potent herb isn’t taken in large quantities as it elevates blood pressure.

It actually, like all herbs works better as it is formulated together with other herbs so it’s properties help to strengthen the effects of its own healing level as well as the healing effects of the other herbs. This is why our 108 purify has a combination of twenty one different herbs and comes from the Traditional Chinese Medicine text from 1800 years ago. 

It has a long history of helping people all over the world to heal themselves from respiratory ailments. The reason we turned to this ancient formula and made it into a liposomal mixture is because of all the different eras it has been used for and how millions of people have benefited from it.
