Capsules: Use powdered form of the herbs to make capsules (as per combination noted above). Take 2 capsules three times per day.
Teas: 2 or 3 cups, three or more times per day (start with 2 cups).

Make fomentation by soaking cotton flannel (or any other natural fibre) in the herbal tea, then apply to the body (upper torso) and secure it plastic wrap or towel. Let it stay on so the body absorbs the liquid. Do this as many times as you’re able to during the day.
