Use of the Pelargonium sidoides plant was discovered in 1897 by an English traveler to South Africa who called it "Steven`s Consumption Cure". This remedy is made from a species of geranium traditionally used by Zulu healers for respiratory and digestive ailments. Research has shown relief of respiratory symptoms as well as shortened duration and reduced severity of sinus and bronchial irritation. The remedy is made from the roots and prepared homeopathically. Missionary doctor Adrien Swchehaye in Switzerland published cured cases as far back as 1929.
Dosage: 1 tsp 4 to 5 times a day.
