       Umckaloabo (Pelargonium sidoides) is yet another one of many plants prized and used in Africa. There, the various cultures are very familiar with the spirit of the plants. This species in particular is used for its believed general healing purposes. It has a wide number of applications that I will get into below as conducted by herbalist. Consult with your doctor first and consider interactions and possible side effects. It's one that I have personally used, as I try to use them all. It doesn't have a bad taste so that's good news, that you probably might be wondering. Note that I provide citations on these pages and please don't take anything as a medical claim. I seek to abide by ethical herbalism in online marketing.


Umckaloabo has been used as a natural alternative to antibiotics by herbalists. Seeing as how plants contain beneficial microbes according to phytochemical studies, I speculate that it and others may also be beneficial to the human microbiome. This is a theory that I had after hearing about the human microbiome project, which is an academic project out in California. I believe its the university of California or something like that. Umckaloabo also has a reputation in its home land as an analgesic, being able to relieve pain. I trust the wisdom of the ages shared by these cultures as they to me, clearly knew what they were doing. This is my belief and below I will get into some academic information which I cite in my references at the bottom of the page.

Studies
Studies have found evidence that Umckaloabo may in fact useful for dealing with acute bronchitis, the common cold, and acute rhino-sinusitis. Interestingly you can find both positive and negative conclusions from phytochemical research. I believe the stuff works. It's my personal belief that many researchers are not conducting studies properly, and are basing their desire to disprove off of personal bias, based on a predisposition to disbelieve. This is my opinion though. Never the less there are tons of positive conclusions from academic studies on these herbs. There are a few studies that I've cited in my references at the bottom of the page. I prefer this particular herb in the form of a tea(or decoction, which is practically the same thing). I tend to try them all via different administration methods and decide which one I feel works the best. This one in particular seems to make my throat feel better when sore.


There is no doubt that plants do produce pharmacological compounds, as indicated to us by phytochemical studies. Germany has embraced the science of herbalism in the mainstream. They even use it in hospitals. I've cited this fact in my citations. Even the worlds most effective pharmaceutical drugs are direct derivatives of plants. Opiates for example, come from the Poppy flower.. Remember, there is a specific branch of chemistry called Phytochemistry thats sole purpose is to find medicinal alkaloids in plants and make sense of their active potentials. I personally like to study each constituent via scholarly journals and then I have a better understanding of the potential of the plant. Umckaloabo in particular, is has an astounding potential from the research I've conducted!


Traditional Medicinal Applications/Properties:

- anti-bacterial
- acute infections of the throat, nose, and ear
- sinusitis, bronchitis, tuberculosis

Preparation


From all the knowledge I have gained over the years, the general idea when dealing with roots is that they are almost always made into a decoction. A decoction is simply when you take the root material, and boil it for a certain amount of time. I boil them on the lowest heat needed to induce the boiling, and try to keep the lid at least 95% covering the mixture. This prevents most of it from evaporating. It also recycles what was evaporating back into the mixture by allowing it to drip back into the water. This is my own personal original method. I often worry about the essential oils evaporating during the boiling process so I use this precuationary way of going about it. I think a steam distillation kit would also be really cool.


The only thing harder than finding a more useful herb than Umckaloabo is saying its name five times fast. I did a lot of experimenting and came up with the ultimate recipe that revolves around the properties of this herb, Pelargonium sidoides as it's scientifically called, and this is what I came up with. I think it goes best with Goldenseal, a little bit of Bee Pollen because the flavors go well together in my opinion, and a pinch of Myrrh believe it or not. I find the three very synergistic. I tried tons of combos after doing research via scholar.google.com to make sure I wasn't adding anything together that may be potentially dangerous. You should know that you need to talk with a doctor first before doing anything. I suggest a good doc that cares about lifestyle more than prescribing drugs.
