Historically Elecampane was the herb of choice for treating tuberculosis. Chinese medicine and Ayuveydic medicine both use it for the treatment of asthma and bronchitis. In the 1800’s, lozenges, candy, and cough drops were all produced from elecampane root.
Now days Elecampane has been used by people with cough related bronchitis or emphysema. Elecampane has actions, which are expectorant, anti-tussive, sedative, anti-fungal, relaxing, warming, and anti-microbial. Elecampane can soothe bronchial tube linings and act as an expectorant for lung cleansing, with the added benefit of having an antibacterial and antimicrobial action which works well in infections.
The plant’s bitter tonic properties stimulate the appetite and digestion, increasing the flow of bile, and can support a debilitated respiratory condition, particularly helpful following influenza or bronchitis.
Externally Elecampane has been used for scabies, herpes and other skin diseases.
