– Echinacea Pallida
Yellow Coneflower, Snakeroot
This is another Echinacea believed to be
of lesser strength but of same value as the Purple Coneflower. It has
been used by American Indians for the first stages of colds and flu to
avoid catching the disease to its full extent. It is antibacterial and
antiviral. This one tends to help detox the body of poisons as well;
thus the name Snakeroot. It supports the lungs and liver function
systems of the body.
As with Purple Coneflower, this one
should not be taken for longer than 6 weeks at a time before letting the
body rest from it for 3 weeks, minimum.
