Description: Many eclectic physicians used herbs as their mainstream medicine and considered lobelia to be one of the most important plant medicines. It was used by Eclectics to treat coughs and spasms in the lungs from all sorts of causes, as well as spasms elsewhere in the body, including the intestines and ureters (passages from the kidney to the bladder). It was also considered a useful pain reliever and in higher doses was used to induce vomiting in persons who had been poisoned.
Lobelia is one of the greatest herbs ever given to the world. If the herb is used skillfully, we concur with Dr. Thomson “there is no vegetable which the earth produces more harmless in its effects on the human system, and none more powerful in removing disease and promoting health than lobelia.” Lobelia is a general corrector of the whole system, as it is easily diffused and able to influence the entire body. Lobelia is an efficient relaxant, and is believed to be the best counter-irritant known to mankind. Its action is felt immediately to the serous, mucous, muscular and nervous systems, especially the sympathetic nervous system. As a powerful antispasmodic, lobelia causes immediate relaxation and expansion of any contracted parts of the respiratory system, such as bronchial tubes, esophagus, glottis and larynx. This allows the “breath of life” (oxygenized blood) to flow freely to the tissues. Lobelia is especially important in removing obstruction and congestion within the body, especially the blood vessels. If there is depression through the vasomotor system, it corrects this, and strengthens the muscular action of the vessel walls, which propel the blood, thus being a key to health throughout the body.
