"Horehound has been used as an expectorant cough remedy since ancient Egyptian times (Bown, 1995). Its name comes from the word hoary, due to the white hairs that cover horehound leaves, and hound, because it was used in ancient Greek medicine to treat bites from rabid dogs (Tyler, 1993). The sixteenth century Elizabethan herbalist John Gerard indicated its use for wheezing and tuberculosis (Tyler, 1993) as did seventeenth century English herbalist Nicholas Culpepper (Grieve, 1979).
Horehound is used in Ayurvedic plant medicine to support acute or chronic bronchitis and whooping cough (Karnick, 1994; Nadkarni, 1976). Its uses in North American aboriginal medicines are comparable to the Asian and European uses. The Cherokee use horehound as a cold remedy, cough medicine, and throat aid... The Navajo prepare it to soothe sore throat. Additionally, Horehound is prepared to ease respiratory ailments (Moerman, 1998)."
