Asafetida’s medicinal uses include the treatment of influenza, is beneficial in fighting the swine flu and H1N1 virus, is used to treat asthma and bronchitis, and is effective is treating colds and flu in children. In addition, it can also be used for reducing chronic bronchitis and whooping cough. Asafoetida is also good for stopping nausea and is treatment for other digestive complaints such as flatulence. It is a secret ingredient in many Indian curries. It was also what Rosemary wore around her neck in the book/movie “Rosemary’s Baby.” If you recall from the book, it has a nauseating smell. That’s a clue. It’s used in very small amounts in treatments or cooking. Asafoetida is a milky sap and is frequently dried and ground and mixed with a carrier for easy use.
