Coltsfoot is one of the most widely used herbs for the treatment of coughs and other lung complaints, and is . extremely helpful in the case of racking coughs such as those that accompany chest colds, asthma and emphysema.
It can be taken as an infusion, tea, syrup, as well as in capsules and extracts.
Coltsfoot should not be used by pregnant women, as it may be an abortifacient, and the alkaloids seem to have a particularly harmful effect on the liver of the developing infant. Still, it is recommended that coltsfoot tea or syrup not be used for more than 4-6 weeks at a time.
