Khella Herbal Remedies
Khella is a traditional Egyptian herb that has an antispasmodic effect on the bronchi and is thus a valuable asthma remedy, particularly as a preventive. It also affects the coronary vessels and is used as a preventive by angina sufferers, as well as having an antispasmodic effect on the ureter, possibly facilitating the passage of kidney stones. The herb and its preparations have also been recommended to ease painful cramps associated with the menstrual cycle, for which it is taken 4-5 days before the expected onset of symptoms through the end of the cycle. Khella is also used internally and externally against vitiligo. Khella has a taste of BITTER, AROMATIC and a temperature of WARM.
