Lobelia has a dual personality. it's both an antispasmodic and a bronchial dilator and possibly has many other attributes that we have not classified as yet. Lobelia is THE premium herb for the lungs but has so many other useful applications that some natural doctors have deemed it, after cayenne, the next most useful herb for an all-natural medicine cabinet.
Take Lobelia with some food in your tummy to avoid the one possible bummer I know of, that it can cause one to feel nauseous. If taken with food, this is very unlikely to happen. In fact, lobelia's pleasantly calming and relaxing.
For the lungs, no herb may help more. Lobelia is famed for helping one breathe more easily and move material out of the lungs ("expectorate" is the fancy term). It both detoxifies lung tissue and encourages its healthy regeneration. Lobelia boasts 14 alkaloids, a remarkable number -- alkaloids being the most powerfully beneficial of all known plant factors.
What a help lobelia can be to someone trying to quit smoking! Here's how: lobelia cleans the lung tissues gooped up with and made sickly by the many poisons in cigarettes. The released nicotine and other poisons enter the bloodstream and while they have not yet been expelled, their presence reduces cravings for more. it's a double whammy to help smokers quit.
