Elecampane has been considered a cure-all and particularly useful herb since ancient Greek and Roman times for treating common colds, menstrual disorders, digestive upsets, and dropsy. It is especially regarded as a tonic herb for the respiratory system by European, Chinese, and Ayurvedic medicines. It effectively treats chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma, colds with copious clear or white mucus, and irritating coughs (especially in children). It also supports digestion and helps build immunity.
