Nothing much better than a big stockpot of chicken and thyme simmering away to help chase away the winter sniffles, and there is more to Grandma’s favorite remedy than just a delicious soup. From research published by Dr. Jean Valnet, it is documented that the herb, Thyme, is one of the most potent antiseptics in the herb world. His research has shown that Thyme can help to neutralize a broad range of different bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
Thyme has been used throughout history for a variety of purposes. Seen as a symbol of courage, bunches of thyme were often given to young men going off to war. It was used to help cleanse houses and freshen sick rooms. Tonics were made for the ailing to sip. And especially during cooler weather, it was added to flavor stews and broths. They say an apple a day will keep the doctor away, but maybe it should be a bowl of thyme stew!
