Every day here at Barlow Herbal we share stories with each other of how our herbal formulas have make differences in our health and our lives.

This week Glena and I were having a conversation about how amazing Lung Blend and CryptoBlend have been in her life.

A few minutes in to what had started as just a normal conversation, I had to ask her if she would write down her experience so that we could share with anyone who would benefit from hearing it. 

For those who don’t know, Glena has been with Barlow Herbal for almost 20 years. I am blessed to call her my daughter-in-law. She has 2 beautiful children with my son Scott. Barlow Herbal simply wouldn’t be the same without her!

Anyway, here is her experience in her own words –

Lung Blend and Crypto Blend have been life-savers for me. Growing up, anytime I’d get a cold, I’d have a cough that would hang on for 6-8 weeks and often lead to bronchitis. I was trying everything I could think of or any new information I would run across to try to stop these persistent coughs.  When the Lung Blend was released a few years back, I started taking it daily mainly to help with my minor sports-induced asthma.  A side effect that I noticed the next time I got sick, was that the cough didn’t linger in my lungs. I also started doing Dr Mercola’s nebulizer suggestion as well when I’d feel a cold coming on. That would make the cough so minor that it was barely noticeable. Needless to say, I am grateful.

Fast forward a few years and the Crypto Blend was released.  I noticed if I started it as soon as I was exposed to someone who was sick, I could avoid the cold completely.  When I wasn’t aware I was exposed and would start taking it when symptoms began, my cold wouldn’t progress any further and my recovery time would be cut down dramatically.  

I’m happy to say that these are a part of my medicinal arsenal at home, at work and on the road.

I usually take 1/2 dropperful 3 times a day of the Lung Blend and 1 full dropperful of Crypto Blend when I’m sick or exposed to someone who is sick.”
