Does echinacea really help prevent colds?
Or is a waste of money...

Well, there appears to be some controvery about this. While some people swear by the stuff, others say that it has no real effect on overcoming a cold. <br />
Here are some links, one of which is from a National Institute of Health study. I hope these help you decide whether to head to the health store or not.Source(s): http://www.stjohn.org/HealthInfoLib/HGArticle.aspx... http://nccam.nih.gov/clinicaltrials/echinacea_rr.h...

Yes of course !<br />
A friend of mine tells me that it works if you take one drop once a week (put it under your tongue), in particular during winter time.<br />
If you are ill, you should take it twice a day in the morning and in the afternoon.<br />
To prevent flu, you can also associate this treatment with Copper pills.
