Q : I heard that Echinacea Angustifolia can be used as a sedative.  Is that really true?

A: Echinacea is a household name and is best known to be an “immune booster”.   This is the case only when it is used in mega doses.  When converted to the homeopathic form i.e. when diluted and potentized, Echinacea Angustifolia has been found to have sedative effects.  A new product called Anz-Ease® that contains Echinacea Angustifolia at 3X dilution is being marketed as an anxiolytic agent.  It is especially good for acute anxiety attacks.  There is no side effects and it can be used together with traditional drugs and other herbal medicines.
