Ulmus fulva is the scientific name for a plant known as Slippery Elm. This remedy has been prepared in many different ways for use in alternative medicine. The inner bark contains a naturally produced chemical known as mucilage. Mucilage is naturally re-occurring, meaning it is present in many plants in nature, including an herb called Mullein. The name "mucilage", sounds a lot like "Mucinex" doesn't it? Mucinex is an over the counter drug that's used for the same symptoms as this chemical which is produced by the plants. I'm not trying to get in any trouble or anything... I'm just saying what I'm thinking. Is that cool? Please don't try to sue me big companies. Thanks. Peace
Traditionally this herb is used in the form of a tea. It's prized among alternative healers for soothing the digestive tract. This medicine is also useful for psoriasis because of its demulcent effect on the intestines. It should not be consumed by pregnant women however; and it may decrease the absorption of prescription medications. Herbalists highly suggest it for respiratory complaints, including congestion and difficulty breathing. Its noticeable benefits on these areas involved in breathing are commonly reported. I have personally known people who have used Mullein(which also contains mucilage) for treating their own ulcer, in combination with eating healthy whole foods.
Nature seems to provide a vast collection of highly evolved compounds which aid in the sustenance of all life on earth. They have been created through an evolutionary process over vast amounts of time. These pharmacological wonders are present again and again in many species. There is a good chance that when certain unrelated strains of plants offer specific effects that are simliar to one another, it's because they produce the same chemical constituents.
These plants have been studied by scholarly researchers around the world for some time now. I understand that the FDA has not looked into them, however; This makes no sense. University studies around the world seek to research them and their highly advanced phytochemical makeup, and draw conclusions on their effectiveness and legitimacy.
