Euphorbia hirta (Euphorbia) A prominent herb in both Chinese herbal medicine and Western herbal medicine. A study published in March 2012 from Chendu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine found that Euphorbia (ethanol extracted herb) had prominent anti-anaphylactic activity in animals. This study validates the traditional use of this herb throughout the ages.(Youssouf et al.,2007:Singh et al., 2006)
Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla). This wonderfully simple herbal tea is underrated as studies are now finding. Chamomile when given in a 1:2 ethanol extract for 11 days supressed itching in animals. (Kobayashi 2003) Veterinary Herbal Medicine Wynne, Fougre.2007 Eslevier, Mosby.
Thuja (Thuja occidentalis) is a significant herb in Ayuvedic medicine otherwise known as the Northern White Cedar. Studies have demonstrated an ethanol based extract has an anti-microbial action as well demonstrating anti-fungal activity due to the thujone content (a volatile oil) . Thuja extracts also demonstrated a high anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activity ( Dubey and Batra) Brijesh,Ruchi,Sanjita,Saumya 2012. ISSN: 0975-8585.
ST John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) Animal studies show that H. perforatum acts as an anti-oxidant and therefore has neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties. It is suggested that the anti-inflammatory response to H.perforatum is at the DNA level, inhibiting the expression of pro-inflamamtory genes. Oxidative Stress and Disease Iris F. F. Benzie and Sissi Wachtel-Galor. Boca Raton (FL): CRC Press/Taylor & Francis; 2011.
Animal Botanical’s Master Herbalist has combined these significant herbs with other alterative herbs such as Albizia as a complete herbal formulation that may help to reduce inflammation associated with Allergy.
