Coltsfoot Tussilago farfara
Quite popular around the globe for lung, chest and bronchial ailments, Coltsfoot is a must have among herbalists. This perennial plant contains mucilage, an organic compound that makes coughs more productive, and help open up the lungs and loosen up phlegm or mucus. Like many other plants in nature Coltsfoot contains a reoccurring compound known as mucilage, also found in Mullein for example. Many medicinal compounds found in nature are in fact re-occurring , found in a wide variety of different botanical species.
Aside from mucilage, Coltsfoot contains other compounds with antispasmodic and sedative effects. These effects are said to be soothing and calming by herbalists. A tea or decoction made from the herb is said to be the most beneficial method of consumption to relieve coughing and rib pain associated with colds, whooping cough, asthma and viral pneumonia. Spasms are also believed to be relieved using coltsfoot and cramps in the stomach, gall bladder and colon.
Similar holistics to Coltsfoot are: Echinacea, Mullein, Yarrow, Goldenseal, FeverFew, to name a few.
mucilage, flavonoids, tannis, and pyrrolizidine alkaloids.
Pregnant women, infants and children are not advised to use this herb. Herbalists claim Coltsfoot should only be used when necessary.
The point is, the idea that holistic health remedies are "bogus" is just absurd. Even though the FDA has not evaluated or approved these alternative healing methods, phytochemist and other researchers around the world have studied them. There are tons of scholarly sources regarding the medicinal compounds and actions behind these herbs and entheogens. If you are a college or university student then I highly suggest taking up a field related to plant based medicine. Together we can continue to show the world that alternative healing practices are indeed backed by science. Aside from the scientific understanding of these plants, herbs, and entheogens, observation alone has been all the proof our ancestors have ever needed.
