LOBELIA (Lobelia inflata)

Lobelia

DESCRIPTION: Lobelia has been known as a valuable herb for removing illness and congestion in the body. It is a powerful relaxant. Lobelia contains sulphur, iron, cobalt, selenium, sodium, copper and lead.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: Lobelia used as a poultice with Slippery Elm and a little soap was used to bring abscesses or boils to a head. Lobelia can be made into a poultice for bruises, erysipelas, felons, insect bites, ringworm, sprains, and poison ivy irritation. Lobelia has been used medicinally as an expectorant, emetic, anti-asthmatic, stimulant, antispasmodic, diaphoretic, diuretic, and nervine. Lobelia is an excellent expectorant. It reduces inflammation and stimulates respiration. Lobelia has been used especially for its antispasmodic qualities to treat asthma and whooping cough.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: May have an antidepressant effect which could interfere with medication. Results suggest that beta-amyrin palmitate, from lobelia, might possess a sedative action. Lobelia may have harmful effects and is potentially toxic. May cause vomiting.
