Three of the nine species of Echinacea - Echinacea Purpurea, Echinacea Angustifolia and Echinacea Pallida are used medicinally for healing wounds, septic cores, boils, abscesses and even snake bites. The American Pharmacognosy Pioneer - John Uri Lloyd (1849-1936) made the first pharmaceutical preparation of the root which was used for serious conditions such as gangrene, TB and diphtheria. Research has shown that Echinacea stimulates the production of white blood cells which fight infection and have antiviral properties. Many herbalists recommend Echinacea to boost the immune system which can help fight off colds and the flu and there has been considerable success in using this herb to treat many other infections, such as sore throats, laryngitis and tonsillitis. Echinacea has also been used with holistic healing programmes for post-viral fatigue syndrome and for treating overgrowth Candida and alleviating various allergies.
