Echinacea - It has been said that Native Americans used Echinacea to treat more conditions than any other remedy. It is an immune-stimulant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and has wound healing properties.
Traditionally, Echinacea has been used by Native Americans to treat colds, coughs, sore throats, and snakebite. The Eclectic medical doctors, from the first half of the last century, also praised Echinacea for its benefits with various chronic congestive conditions of the respiratory tract.
Today, modern science is beginning to support much of its established traditional use, by showing that extracts of Echinacea spp. have the ability to increase antibody production, along with resistance to various infections. Research has further shown that alcohol/water extracts of Echinacea significantly enhance natural killer cell function, and have phagocytic, metabolic and bactericidal influence on macrophages.
