EchinAce (Echinacea angustifolia root; Echinacea purpurea root, flower, and seed)
Eclectic physicians (19th and early 20th century MD's who used herbal therapies) found Echinacea effective for serious infections such as typhus, diphtheria, and scarlet fever. This gives you an idea of its powerful antiseptic qualities. Modern science has proven Echinacea's anti-microbial effects; specifically, Echinacea has proven white blood cell elevating, antibacterial, antiviral, and antitumour effects. Compared with placebo, Echinacea was found to significantly reduce cold symptoms. Colds were less severe and resolved more quickly, and frequency of colds was less in those taking Echinacea extract versus placebo in another study.

Golden Seal (Hydrastis canadensis)
Golden Seal is our best tonifier of mucus membranes, especially of the sinus and digestive mucosae, useful especially for catarrhal conditions, such as sinusitis, tonsillitis, conjunctivitis, pharyngitis (inflamed throat), and gastritis. Golden Seal contains a high concentration of Berberine, an alkaloid with proven antimicrobial activity, especially for intestinal bacterial and parasitic infections, and for ocular infection . Dr. Bill Mitchell names Golden Seal as his top medicine for anti-bacterial and antiseptic purposes. Golden Seal has demonstrated anticancer properties.

Wild Indigo (Baptisia tinctoria)
A favourite of Dr. John Bastyr, Dr. Bill Mitchell says, "[Indigo] makes the difference between a good formula and a great formula". Wild Indigo is often an effective medicine, especially for chronic infectious conditions, such as tonsillitis, laryngitis, lymphadenitis, and sinusitis. Wild Indigo is one of our best anti-microbials; it inhibits the multiplication of viruses; when added to Echinacea, it improves its activity.

Myrrh (Commiphora molmol)
Myrrh stimulates white blood cell (WBC) production, and is "chemotactic", i.e. it draws WBC's to an area of infection. Myrrh is especially effective for laryngitis, pharyngitis, and as a mouthwash for gingivitis and mouth ulcers. Myrrh is a specific for mononucleosis.

Propolis (a glue-like resin from the honey bee)
Similar to myrrh, propolis contains a large percentage of resin. Resin-containing medicines (in general) have potent antimicrobial effects. Propolis has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immunostimulatory effects. It has proven antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties. Propolis is effective against Trichophyton, E.Coli, Streptococcus, and Staph aureus infection . Propolis can suppress the formation of scar tissue in surgical wounds more effectively than standard treatments (see our Bee Propolis Skin Cream).

Cayenne (Capsicum annuum)
"Cayenne is a perfect addition to ot
Contra-indications and Cautions:
Do not take when pregnant. EchinaSeal should not be used as a prophylactic (preventative) because its Golden Seal ingredient, when used over a period of weeks (i.e. four or more), will interfere with the intestinal flora and also deplete the body of B vitamins. The best approach for long term prevention, i.e. during flu and cold season, is to take 30 drops once daily of the EchinAceā„¢. Use EchinaSeal at the onset of flu or cold symptoms.
