Actions: Immune system modulator and tonic. Anti-inflammatory. Stimulates healthy growth of connective tissue and speeds healing of damaged tissues. Excellent alterative, and blood and lymphatic cleanser.
Uses: All conditions where immune system is challenged or compromised: Inflammations, infections, fevers, colds, flu, allergies, etc. Weak immune system and susceptibility to infections or slow-healing wounds. Septicemia (“blood poisoning”). Lymphatic congestion. Boils and carbuncles. Eczema, psoriasis, hives and other skin problems. General “run-down” feeling. Arthritis. Venomous stings and bites.
Cautions: Some caution that taking Echinacea for extended periods of time causes its therapeutic effects to diminish, and that Echinacea is contraindicated in autoimmune diseases. However, there has been no scientific proof or evidence to support these theories, and Echinacea’s long clinical history demonstrates otherwise.
