Description. The root is the part of the plant used for healing purposes. In ancient Rome, elecampane was regarded as a good aid in overcoming post banquet indigestion. This plant is also highly appreciated in Tibetan medicine. Elecampane is considered to have antiphlogistic, expectorant, improving digestion, diuretic and tonic properties. Its restorative, tonic action complements its ability to counter infection. Elecampane entered folk medicine with the ancient Greeks and Romans, who used it in cold remedies because it was thought to promote sweating and help bring up phlegm. In the 19th century the roots were boiled in sugar water to make cough drops and asthma lozenges or just candy. Use. Elecampane is considered to be of great value for chest infections, headaches, improving appetite, anemia, belching, swelling, upset stomach, for skin problems such as itching, eczema, wounds; and for mouth inflammations. Elecampane has long been valued as a tonic herb for the respiratory system. Its warming effect on the lungs, combined with its ability to gently stimulate the coughing up and clearing of mucus from the chest, makes it valuable for young and old. In addition, the herb is mildly bitter, helping recovery by improving digestion and the absorption of nutrients. Elecampane has been taken traditionally as a tonic herb for the digestion. It stimulates the appetite and relieves dyspepsia.
