Use of Echinacea

Use of Echinacea

Echinacea is used for the treatment of coughs, sneezing, hoarseness, sore throat, tonsilitus, sinus infections, skin inflammations, minor wounds, bladder infections, kidney infections, gynecological infections and general immune deficiency.

Duration of Use:

Continuous use of echinacea is not advised.  Many studies have suggested that its effectiveness lasts in ten day durations.  You can safely take it up to 8 weeks at a time.  After that it is recommended that you take a 1 week break before repeating the herbal treatment to get the best results.

Dosage:

To mobilize the immune system, the initial dosage can be relatively high.  This a a jump start therapy.  Initially it is recommended to take up to 80 drops once a day for 2 days.  Then reducing the dosage to 15 drops 3 times per day, taken pure or dissolved in a glass of water.  Always take before meals.

Side Effects:

There have been no reports of adverse side effects or interactions between echinacea and other remedies, drugs or medications.  However, people who tend to be allergic to mixed herbal remedies should exercise caution when taking echinacea.
