Dr. Christopher said that Lobelia Extract is one of the greatest herbs in the world. Those who use it consider it to be indispensable in their herbal repertoire acting as a thinking agent which goes to whatever part of the body is ailing and treats it often in conjunction with other herbs. Dr. Christopher considered that Lobelia would help correct the entire bodily system, as it is easily diffused and utilized. Its action is felt immediately to treat the serous fluids, mucous, muscular and nervous systems, and the sympathetic nervous system* As a powerful anti-spasmodic, Lobelia causes immediate relaxation and expansion of any contracted parts of the respiratory system, such as bronchial tubes, esophagus, glottis and larynx. This allows the breath of life (oxygenized blood) to flow freely to the tissues. Lobelia is especially important in removing obstruction and congestion within the body, especially the blood vessels. If there is depression through the vasomotor system, it corrects this, and strengthens the muscular action of the vessel walls, which propel the blood, thus being a key to health throughout the body.
