Plantain has been used as a panacea in some Native American cultures, and it holds powerful skin-healing properties. There is a very good reason for this, as it has many active constituents that show antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Plantain is known for soothing and cooling mucous membranes, and at the same time its astringency helps to relieve diarrhea, excess menstrual flow, hemorrhoids and incontinence in children and adults. It is also soothing to the lungs, effectively loosening and expelling phlegm and congestion and treating hoarseness. Plantain leaves are believed to be useful for diabetes, gout, gastric and bowel ulcers, dyspepsia, tuberculosis, jaundice, epilepsy, constipation, varicose veins, and even eye infections.
