I started drinking Echinacea Plus tea and was very pleased at how much it helped with my cold/sinus probelems! Having said that, I was unaware of the side effects or interactions.

I use echinasea at that first sign of a soar throat. I recently had a serviceman at my house. Immediately he started sneezing due to the cat. Buckets of liquid came out of his nose. I gave him a handful of echinacea. He came back on Monday. I said did you take allergy medicine. He said, no I am fine now because of the echinacea I had given him. This really works.

Gave Natures Sunshine brand liquid "golden seal" (echinacea extract)to my 16 month old as recommended by the local herbal professional, and in 2 days went from not sleeping, river of snot flowing, miserable child to almost normal! not a drip of snot in the morning! Very surprised and very happy! (I was a doubter)
