Osha Root (Ligusticum porter)

Latin Name: Ligusticum porter
Common Names: Osha Root

Ligusticum porteri was commonly used by the Apaches and other native tribes as a snake and insect repellent because of its strong odor. The Apache tribe also believed that Osha Root could be used as an aid in cases of common colds, sore throats, cough, sinusitis, and other side effects of the winter season.

Osha Root is thought to be a potent antiviral and antibacterial agent, which can help with bronchial infections and sore throats. Chewing directly on the Whole Osha Root is thought to cause perspiration which may enhances the body's immune system. While the Osha Root has a distinct and bitter taste, these dried herbs also have a numbing effect which soothes sore throats.

Tea made from Osha Root may also relieve some gastrointestinal discomfort, in particular indigestion and vomiting due to an upset stomach. This natural herb is also sometimes used as a way to increase appetite and topically on cuts and scrapes because of its powerful antibacterial qualities. Some believe the potent properties of the Osha Root may be used for head colds with dry cough; certain stages of pharyngitis; early stages of tonsillitis; coughs; influenza with persistent coughing; dry, hot fevers; and acute brochial pneumonia.

Miracle Root

A few years ago I had pneumonia, asthma, and bronchitis. I had been in the hospital, was on 3 different antibiotics and still had fluid in my left lung. A Native American friend told me to chew osha root. I ordered it, received it in a couple days, started chewing it and within one week my doctor told me he couldn't understand what happened because he was ready to admit me to the hospital if I had not improved. He said the antibiotics must have kicked in. I quit taking the antibiotics when I received the root. I still use it whenever I feel a cold or flu coming on or if my allergies flare up. I have not had any problems since using osha root. I recommend it to all my friends who sometimes order the extract or cough medicine but it is best to chew the root.
