The root of the tall, striking elecampane plant has been used both
medicinally and as a `condiment' for centuries. In ancient Greek and Roman
times, elecampane was used for asthma, sciatica, and also, externally, as
a healing poultice on animals. Elecampane is still grown and cultivated
today, primarily in Holland, Switzerland, and Germany. Modern day research
supports the use of elecampane for disorders of the respiratory tract
based on its anti-bacterial, antitussive, and expectorant actions
exhibited in laboratory in vitro studies. Further studies have
demonstrated anti-parasitic, anthelmintic properties making elecampane
useful for gastrointestinal complaints.
Stir 1/4 of a teaspoon into a glass of water and consume 3 times daily, with meals.
