Medicinal Herbs

Medicinal Herbs

Herbs may sedate or energize and, along with other plants, are a significant part of medicinal history in various cultures. Remember that these herbs are medicines, so follow package directions and don't overdose. Be aware of interactions and contraindications, especially those involving heart conditions and allergies.

Mahuang, or ephedra sinica, has been used for more than 2,000 years in China. It contains ephedrine, which exerts similar effects on the central nervous system as epinephrine. It has a longer-lasting action than epinephrine, but isn't as potent. Ephedrine increases cardiac output and relaxes bronchial muscles, which is why it's used to treat asthma and hay fever.
