Since olden days, Echinacea purpurea has been used to treat various diseases ranging from scarlet fever, venereal diseases such as syphilis, malarial infections, blood poisoning, and diphtheria. In recent times, Echinacea purpurea or purple coneflower is used to reduce the effects of common cold and flu and soothe the symptoms of painful diseases such as sore throat or pharyngitis, severe cough and cold, and reduce fever. Most herbalists are of the opinion that Echinacea be recommended to help build the immune system and boost the body's fight against infections. Recent laboratory and animal research studies show that Echinacea purpurea possesses active chemical compounds that help to boost the activity of the immune system, alleviate pain, cut down inflammation, and bring about positive hormonal, antiviral, and antioxidant changes to treat disorders. Some professional herbalists advocate the use of Echinacea purpurea in treating urinary tract disorders, yeast infections, ear infections or otitis media, tinea pedis, inflammation of the sinus and allergic rhinitis. It is also used to treat certain wounds that are slow in healing. Although purple coneflower is known to be a safe herb, patients experiencing tuberculosis, blood disorders, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune disorders, and liver disorders should refrain from consuming Echinacea purpurea preparations. It is possible that Echinacea could bring down the potency of medications that inhibit the immune system. Moreover since Echinacea has the ability to boost immune function, people who are under treatment for organ transplant with immunosuppressive medications must strictly avoid taking the herb as it contradicts the traditional medication.
