Echinacea is a flowering herb native to North America. Used traditionally by Native Americans to soothe toothaches, sore throat, rabies, burns and snakebites, echinacea enjoyed popularity as a natural cold remedy until the 1930s and 40s when the use of antibiotics out shone the wonders of echinacea. However, echinacea has made a comeback and is once again a popular over-the-counter remedy for cold and flu symptoms.
Echinacea stimulates an immune response to ward off infections, and may also increase the production of interferons, proteins released by cells in the presence of pathogens like bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Research indicates that the polysaccharides (carbohydrates) in echinacea play a role in preventing viruses from invading healthy body cells. Additionally, naturally occurring chemical compounds called alkaloids may be effective in fighting bacterial and fungal infections.
Immediate use of echinacea upon the first on-set of flu or cold symptoms stimulates an immune response to rid the body of the ailment by inducing phagocytosis, in which the immune cells engulf the invading pathogen, and by increasing the mobility of white blood cells, the cells of the immune system that defend the body from infection and foreign materials. Taking echinacea before your cold is fully developed may be effective at reducing the length of the infection and at decreasing the severity of your symptoms.
Dr. Hulda Clark recommended echinacea to support the body's natural defenses with natural compounds that discourage the proliferation of foreign organisms known to occupy the human body, bringing about balance between body and microorganisms.
