@ceilingcat - I personally think it's always a good idea to try new medicine when you can spend some time at home. You never know what strange side effects you may experience!
I'm a bit interested in the herb because it supposedly treats asthma. I have asthma, and it's definitely not bad enough that I need to use a preventative inhaler. I do use a rescue inhaler at times though.
Anyway, I think it would be nice if I could take something natural for my asthma instead of an inhaled steroid from the doctor. It seems like it's worth a try!
