How to Make Lobelia

  2. Asthma Treatment

    The leaves and seeds of lobelia are often used to create a herbal remedy for respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia and coughing.

    Lobeila helps clear the respiratory tract, throat, lungs and bronchial tubes of mucus. Modern herbalists use lobelia as part of their asthma-treatment program.
  3. Addition treatment

    research suggests that lobeline, an active ingredient in the lobelia plant, may reduce the effects of nicotine in the body, in particular the release of the brain chemical dopamine. As dopamine is a major element in drug addiction, researchers believe that lobeline may be used to treat such addiction problems.
  4. Considerations

    It is recommended that you do not take lobelia if you are pregnant or nursing. The unpredictability of your reaction may cause problems with your pregnancy or your breast milk. Also, if you are on any type of regular medication, it is wise to consult your doctor if you plan to add lobelia to your routine in any of its forms. Touching the leaves or seeds of the plant to your bare skin may cause itching or a rash.

    Lobelia may be used on its own or combined with other herbs in homeopathic remedies.
  5. lobelia may be used as a liquid extract, ground into a powder, in capsules or in teas.
