Echinacea – Necrosis (Gangrene)
Olive leaf is used to help ward off infections of any kind, especially for necrosis (gangrene). Other helpful herbs for gangrene include bayberry, cayenne, echinacea, gingko, goldenseal and red seal.
Echinacea – Colds, Flu, Infections, Cancer
Echinacea is a household name that’s known when it comes to warding off colds and flu. This herb is used as a natural antibiotic and immune system stimulator, helping build up resistance. The reason behind its effectiveness is because of its ability to stimulate the lymph flow in the body. Lymphs run parallel with your bloodstream and carries the toxins outside of your body.
This herb should be taken in either liquid or capsule form for 2-3 week periods during “high risk” flu seasons. The tea from this herb has also grown in popularity for treating infections and cancers including skin cancer.
Echinacea – Bronchitis
The Medical Center also suggests that the use of echinacea can also help prevent and treat respiratory problems. In addition, echinacea helps support your immune system and wards off infection to treat bronchitis and help prevent further development of the condition. You should take at least 300mg of echinacea 3 times a day for the biggest health benefit.
Echinacea – Viral Infection
Echinacea is known to help support the immune system and it may also have direct antiviral action. The preparations of echinacea roots and its flowering parts have been shown in several clinical trials to be effective in lowering the severity and duration of symptoms in patients with the common cold, upper respiratory tract infection and viral bronchitis symptoms.
The natural antivirals described may be able to provide a welcome (and sometimes more effective) alternative to pharmaceutical drugs. Because some of them have been shown to kill only viruses in a test tube and have not yet been subject to clinical trials, the best approach to take in treating viral illnesses may be through a holistic one. This would involve the use of a couple of antiviral products along with immune-boosting nutrients like vitamins A, C, and E, selenium, CoQ10 and probiotics.
Echinacea – Viral Infection ver. 2
Echinacea is the first herb that comes to mind when the cold season starts. At the first sights of either a viral or bacterial infection, start taking it right away, or better yet, a blend of immune supportive herbs including echinacea. Though it does not prevent you from catching a cold, it will just help you reduce your symptoms. Plus, it helps build up your immune system so that you’ll become less likely to catch another cold.
One thing to remember, echinacea should not be taken on a daily basis for long periods of time.
Echinacea – Viral Infection ver. 3
Echinacea is one of the most widely studied herbs. Tests have repeatedly demonstrated that one of its key ingredients, alkylamides, helps reduce fever and inflammation, as well as boosts white cell production. Remember that white blood cells are a part of your body’s infantry that surround and eat foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses.
Another active ingredient in echinacea, known as polysaccharides, helps speed up the production of a natural protein called interferon. This is a special protein secreted by an infected host cell to stop the viral invader from spreading to adjacent cells.
Echinacea – Skin Cancer
Echinacea is a powerful herb that grows in some parts of North America. It’s also a supplement used widely in Europe as well. There’s currently zero evidence that supports the use of such in treating cancer in humans. Manufacturers of echinacea promote using it to prevent and lessen the symptoms of the common cold, flu and other lung problems.
Although there’s still zero evidence that echinacea can help with cancer, people have taken it because they believe that it may:
- Boost their immune system
- Fight their cancer
- Give them control over their cancer and its treatments
- Treat their cancer if conventional treatment can no longer offer a possible cure
There are zero clinical trial results to show that echinacea can boost the immune system or fight cancer in humans. However, there’s continuing research into its use to fight infections, viruses and cancer.
Echinacea – Cancer Treatment and Prevention
Echinacea is a household name when it comes to warding off both the common cold and flu. This herb is mostly used as a natural antibiotic and immune system stimulator, helping establish resistance.
