Also called Indian tobacco or pukeweed, lobelia produces bitter leaves and seeds that have expectorant, stimulant, antispasmodic, and emetic properties. Health-wise, Lobelia can be used to help support health concerns such as asthma, spasmodic coughs, spasms and tetany, food poisoning (vomit), and it can be used as a catalyst for other herbs in combinations and formulas. The biochemical makeup of lobelia includes various alkaloids including lobeline, which has similar effects to nicotine, making it useful in anti-smoking regimes.

Lobelia is primarily employed for asthma, coughs, spasmodic coughs and upper-respiratory complaints. It is also useful for spasmodic neurological problems and is one of the fastest-acting herbal antispasmodics known. Thus many old-time herbalists commonly added it in small amounts to serve as a catalyst preparing the body to better accept and utilize the major ingredients in a formula.

An aura of controversy has always surrounded the possibility of lobelia toxicity. The experience of the late Dr. John Raymond Christopher and hundreds of herbalists and doctors before him have concluded that there is no problem with the use of this herb.

Lobelia is one of the best herbs to use as an emetic and can be useful during the height of an asthmatic attack. The best method is to use acid liquid extract of lobelia made with apple-cider vinegar. Begin by drinking a large volume of lukewarm mint tea and follow by taking one teaspoon of lobelia extract every ten minutes for three or four times or until emesis ensues. The lobelia will promote vomit ing and leave the body perfectly relaxed Externally, it can be applied to bruises, sprains, insect bites and immunity issues.

Dosage: 3-15 grams; of the liquid extract, 5-15 drops.

Lobelia is still included in preparations for the symptomatic support of asthma, coughs and pertussis. An isolated ingredient, lobeline, is used in oral anti-smoking preparations to lessen the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. Extracts were once injected as resuscitation product for asphyxia and apnoea in babies but is no longer used because of undesirable side effects. North Indians used the plant as a tobacco substitute (hence the common name) and as an emetic.

Lobelia
Lobelia inflata L.

Family: Campanulaceae.

Other Names: Indian tobacco; asthma weed; lobélie enflée (French); Aufgeblasene Lobelie, Indianertabak (German); lobelia (Italian).

Description: Indian tobacco is a small, much-branched annual herb of up to 0.5 m in height, with soft, stalkless leaves and small, pale blue flowers borne amongst leafy bracts along the branch tips. The calyx of the flower is characteristically swollen, hence the botanical name inflata. Several other Lobelia species have been used in folk tradition. Chinese lobelia (L. chinensis) is a traditional diuretic, while the Chilean cardinal flower (L. tupa) is a traditional narcotic and support for toothaches.

Origin: North America. The other species mentioned are from China (L. chinensis), eastern North America (L. siphilitica) and Chile (L. tupa). Indian tobacco is cultivated in North America, Russia and India. Many Lobelia species are popular garden plants.

Parts Used: Stems and leaves (Lobeliae herba).

Therapeutic Category: Respiratory stimulant; cough support.

Active Ingredients: The herb contains several piperidine alkaloids (up to 0.5% of dry weight), of which lobeline is the major compound. The alkaloids are also found in the latex and are complexed with chelidonic acid.

Health Effects: Lobeline activates nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (similar to nicotine). It is a respiratory stimulant which accelerates respiratory movements by a direct action on the central nervous system. It also acts as a bronchodilator and ganglionic stimulant. The herb is stated to have spasmodic, expectorant and emetic properties.

Status: Traditional health; Pharm.



Name

Lobelia inflata L. (Campanulaceae), commonly called Indian Tobacco, gag root, and puke weed in English. A closely related variety, Lobelia dortmanna L., which grows in Europe, contains the same active ingredients. In France, it is called Lobélie de Dortman. In German, it is Wasser Spleisse or Wasser-Lobelie.

Source

Lobelia is grown commercially in North America, and in the Netherlands. Remedies are made from the crushed dried flowers of the plant.

History

During the late 1700s, and the first part of the nineteenth century, physicians used lobelia to induce vomiting and remove "toxins." Some physicians recommended using it to help support the wheezing of asthma. For the last several decades, one of the components, called lobeline, can be used to help people quit smoking.

Traditional Support Uses

Lobelia can be used as a diaphoretic (something that causes sweating), expectorant, sedative and purgative (laxative).

Commission E Recommendations

The Commission makes no mention of this herb.

Possible Effects

The leaves, stems and flowers of lobelia contain nearly two dozen different alkaloids, most of which are closely related to nicotine (piperidine alkaloids). Some of these alkaloids have the ability to help avoid inflammation, or at least reduce it and work in much the same way as commercial products, such as Advil. Lobeline, a slightly different sort of alkaloid, is used in smoking cessation. How, and even whether, it helps a person to quit smoking is not clear, but at the molecular level, this alkaloid shares common mechanisms with cocaine and methamphetamine, and even anti-melancholys, like Prozac, i.e., it fights the reuptake of dopamine. Reuptake is the way the body turns off neurotransmitters. If reuptake is reduced, then the effects of the hormone are exaggerated. Lobeline has a molecular structure very similar to that of nicotine and it produces many of the same effects. In large doses, both lobeline and nicotine cause nausea and vomiting. Even the dose prescribed in smoking cessation programs, 2-4 milligrams several times a day, may leave some users nauseated. Claims that extract of lobelia, or smoked lobelia, are effective approaches for asthma or stomach cramps have never been validated in a clinical trial.

Dosage

According to the British Pharmaceutical Codex, 50 to 200 milligrams of dried herb three times a day is the recommended dose for asthma, chronic coughing, and spastic colon.

The recommended dose for extract (1:8, 60 percent ethanol) is .4 to 1.6 milliliters up to three times a day.

Of the many varieties of this plant the two most interesting are those found in Canada and the eastern United States respectively.

In small doses, the decoction of this root stimulates cutaneous perspiration; a stronger dose produces vomiting. Lobelia inflata, Indian Tobacco or Pukeweed is extensively used as an emetic, but also to help support symptoms of bronchial troubles and pulmonary complaints.

Medicinal Usage

Cherokee Indians in the South employed the cardinal flower's root as a herb that can be used for infections, while Iroquois Indians in the North swore by great blue lobelia's root as a herb that can be used for the same use.

Sir William Johnson, superintendent of Indian affairs in North America from 1756 to 1774 and a friend of the Iroquois, sent samples of the blue flower to England, hoping to provide Europeans with a long-sought solution for the problem. But the English trials of the plant had negative results, and European physicians had to discount it as a herb that can be used for this infection. Nevertheless, the Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus labeled the plant Lobelia siphilitica.

Although Indians and settlers used the cardinal flower as an emetic (to induce vomiting) and an expectorant, herbalists never valued it as much as they did its potent (and poisonous) cousin Lobelia inflata, or Indian tobacco.

North Indians used both plants to help support infections. Great blue lobelia's effectiveness against such infections was tested but not substantiated when the plant was introduced into traditional Western health science around 1800.

General Herb Information

In late summer, all across the country, one may see two members of the lobelia family blooming along muddy streams, lakeshores, and marshy riverbanks. The cardinal flower flaunts crimson red blossoms in showy spikes. The other member, often called great blue lobelia, sports purplish-blue flowers.

Both plants are now esteemed more for their beauty as wildflowers than for their health properties, but in the early days of America this was not true.

Habitat: Moist pasture lands, lakeshores, marshy and muddy banks of streams and rivers.

Range: Native to North America, both plants are found from southern Canada to Texas. Cardinal flower is a protected species in some states.

Identification: Both plants are perennials, and grow 2-4 feet tall with stiff, erect stems. The leaves are lance-shaped and toothed. The flowers of both plants grow in long spiky clusters. Cardinal flower (July-September) is intense crimson red, and great blue lobelia (August-September) is deep blue to purple.

Preparation and Dosage: A dose of 0.2 - 0.6 g the herb is taken as an infusion or decoction three times per day. Liquid extracts or extracts (1:1 in 50% ethanol) are taken in 0.2 - 0.6 mL quantities, three times daily.

Lobelia

Lobeline has not proven to be very effective in smoking cessation, and even modest doses may cause some nausea. Large doses can be very toxic. Use of the nicotine patch is associated with a much higher smoking cessation rate and is preferred. Similarly, there are many prescription medications for asthma and stomach cramps that are both safer and more effective. Lobelia should not be used by pregnant women.
