Echinacea species are native to the prairie region of the United States. Echinacea was traditionally used to treat many kinds of infection, including syphilis, typhoid, and malaria. Echinacea was also used to treat boils, abscesses, rheumatism, migraines, dyspepsia, pain, wounds, eczema, dizziness, rattlesnake bites, bee stings, and hemorrhoids.

The majority of clinical research studies have found that echinacea preparations help to shorten the duration of colds.  However, every trial performed that has looked at whether echinacea can prevent colds has found no benefit.
