Umckaloabo Herb Pelargonium sidoides
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 in general healing purposes. It has a wide number of
applications that I will get into below.
It has been used as a natural alternative to antibiotics. Seeing as how plants contain beneficial microbes, it may also be beneficial to the human microbiome. Umckaloabo also has a reputation in its home land as an analgesic, being able to relief pain.
Studies have found evidence that it's in fact useful for dealing with acute bronchitis, the
common cold, and acute rhino-sinusitis. It's my personal belief that many researchers are
not conducting studies properly, and are basing their desire to prove or disprove off of
personal bias, based on a predisposition to disbelieve.
Even with that in mind, there is no doubt that plants do produce pharmacological compounds.
Even the worlds most effective pharmaceutical drugs are direct derivatives of plants.
Opiates for example, come from the poppy
flower.. There's also a specific branch of chemistry called Phytochemistry thats sole
purpose is to find medicinal alkaloids in plants and make sense of their active potentials.

Traditional Medicinal Applications/Properties:

- sinusitis, bronchitis, tuberculosis
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.
