Lobelia: Best is "Lobelia inflata" a weed that has inflated seed pods.

Uses: seizures, fits, convulsions, spasms, asthma, bronchial dilator, cramps, nervousness, restlessness. In large dosages it is a whole body cathartic, diaphoretic, diuretic, and emetic.

Emergency Internal Dosage for Tincture: 1 to 5 Dropperfuls. "I had a man who was dying of asthma and supposed to be dead by morning. I gave him a tablespoon every ten minutes. When that didn't work, I gave him an entire 2 oz. Bottle at once. Within a few minutes, his eyes got wide, he leaned over and vomited (the desired result of this process) multi-colored puss and blood clots from his lungs. Fourteen years later, he is still alive."

Maintenance: Start with 5 drops in water or juice 3 times daily.

When in doubt as to what herb to use, alternate Cayenne and Lobelia with one-half hour in between. Lobelia contains 14 different high-powered chemicals called alkaloids. Try lobelia when up against a wall, even if it doesn't seem to fit the case.
