My daughter started to get the flu and had body aches and a headache. I gave her a dose and she woke up the next day with no problems! My husband got it one Sunday recently and he was bad all day and by night he had chills in the bed and aches and I made him take some Umcka and guess what? He woke up the next morning with no symptoms!
My aunt and uncle had the flu very bad yesterday and my other uncle got them some Umcka after hearing my dad tell them about how it helped us. They took it last night and today they are better! This stuff really works!
We used the alcohol-free tincture form but you can also buy it in powder tea and tablet form. It is made by Nature's Way and can be found at natural/health stores or online. Thought I would pass this along to help others since the flu is bad this year.
Umcka is just the name of the South African plant: Pelargonium Sidoides. It not only can help colds and flu but also bronchitis and other respiratory illnesses. Here is a quote from Natural Standard:
Pelargonium sidoides, also known as umckaloabo, is a member of the geranium family and is native to South Africa. The name "umckaloabo" is derived from two Zulu words: umkhuhlane, meaning "fever- and cough-related diseases," and uhlabo, meaning "chest pain."
For centuries, the roots of Pelargonium sidoides have been used in traditional South African medicine for the treatment of respiratory diseases, diarrhea, dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation), and liver disorders. Extracts of the root have been available without prescription in German pharmacies since 1983 and have been widely used to treat infections of the sinus, throat, and respiratory tract. Recently, an aqueous formulation of the roots of Pelargonium sidoides called EPs 7630® has been studied in humans as a potential treatment for acute bronchitis, acute pharyngitis, and the common cold.
