The Best Antiviral Medicinal Herbs

All this week I have been sharing with my readers, via Facebook Live sessions and this website, the best antivirals in the way of foods, culinary herbs, and essential oils and this post is all about the best antiviral medicinal herbs.

While we don’t know for a fact that these things will kill COVID-19 – it is too new and there is no research – we do know that the herbs listed below do have antiviral activity. And a few of them have anti-coronavirus activity (just a different form than the one currently harassing the globe). Without further ado, here’s the list:

Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis)
Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus)
Burdock (Arctium lappa)
Calendula (Calendula officinalis)
Cats Claw (Uncaria tomentosa)
Chaparral (Larrea tridentata)
Chinese Skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis) – one of the phytochemicals, a flavone, from this plant does have research showing that it fights another strain of coronavirus [1]
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)
Echinacea (Echinacea angustifolia, E purpurea)
Essiac tea – a blend of herbs that are both anticancer and antiviral
Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis)
Green tea (Camellia sinensis)
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)
Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza glabra)
Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) a/k/a St Mary’s Thistle
Moringa (Moringa oleifera)
Nettle Leaf (Urtica dioica)
Olive leaf (Olea europea)
Pao Pereira (Geissospermum vellosii)
Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata)
Pau d’ Arco (Tabebuia impetiginosa)
Red Clover (Trifolium pratense L.)
Red Spider Lily (Lycoris radiata) – these are known to be toxic, they are from the amaryllis family. I only mention it because it actually has research [1] indicating that it fights another form of coronavirus (not COVID-19).
Rose Hips (from Rosa species)
St John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum)
Wormwood (Artemesia annua) – this herb also has research [1] showing that it fights another form of coronavirus (not COVID-19).

A good many Chinese herbs are also antiviral and, if you have the misfortune to be fighting breast cancer in the midst of this pandemic, I would strongly recommend that you be working with a Traditional Chinese Medicine herbalist to find the best protection for you.

When taking herbal medicine, it is best to work with a qualified naturopath or herbal medicine doctor so that you don’t have interactions with any other medications you might be on.

About Marnie Clark

marnie clark breast cancer coach

Hi I’m Marnie Clark, breast cancer survivor turned coach. I have 20 years of experience in natural medicine.  In 2004/05 I battled breast cancer myself. You can see more about my journey on my page Breast Cancer Diary.

I’ve been healthy and recurrence-free since 2004 and in 2012 I became a Breast Cancer Coach because I became aware of the fact that whilst there is now a wealth of information on the Internet, much of it is confusing, conflicting, and sometimes just wrong!

So it is my duty to help you unconfuse and untangle all that information, and find what works for YOU.
