Lobelia has been traditionally used as an herbal remedy for respiratory health conditions, skin disorders, and to promote vomiting. The herb was especially revered by the people indigenous to North America, such as Cherokee, Iroquois, and Penobscot. Local tribes appreciated Lobelia for its effects on respiration and muscle ailments; they also used it in rituals and to kill insects.
Lobeline, a major alkaloid isolated from Lobelia, has been reported to exhibit beneficial effects on the respiratory system and to aid breathing. It’s also reported to be beneficial for healthy blood vessels. In addition, according to studies, Lobeline demonstrates properties that support nerves and mood.
One of the plant’s common names, Indian Tobacco, refers to the fact that the leaves of Lobelia were smoked by Indigenous Americans as tobacco, and it was also used to treat respiratory ailments.

My husband is doing well with this natural maintenance replacement to prescribed meds. His breathing is calmer and his coughing is significantly less. We have a standby inhaler should it be needed.
