The History of Echinacea

Echinacea was first used by Native Americans for its medicinal properties. The Cherokee tribe called it "the life of man" because they believed it could cure any illness. Other tribes used it to treat wounds, colds, flu, and even snake bites! It wasn't until the 19th century that echinacea began to be used by Europeans and Americans for its health benefits.

Echinacea became popular in Western medicine in the early 1800s when doctors began using it to treat a variety of ailments including Scarlet Fever, malaria, and anthrax. By the late 1800s, echinacea was one of the most popular medical treatments in the United States. It continued to be used throughout the 20th century for everything from colds and flu to cancer and AIDS.

The Benefits of Echinacea

There are many purported benefits of echinacea, but not all of them have been backed up by scientific research. Some benefits that have been supported by scientific studies include:

  • - Reduced duration and severity of cold and flu symptoms
  • - Relief from upper respiratory tract infections
  • - Reduction in bronchitis symptoms
  • - Stimulation of immune system activity
  • - Topical relief from burns and insect bites
