Asafoetida General Information
From early times, Asafoetida has been held in great esteem amongst indigenous Indian medicine men. It is the pungent odor of this resin that is the cause for some of its strange names, such as Devil’s Dung, Stinking Gum, Asant, Food of the Gods, Hing, Hingu, Heeng and Giant Fennel. The name Asafoetida is derived from the Persian word for “resin” and the Latin word for “stinking”. The herb is a native of Persia, but has been cultivated in Europe and India for over 2,000 years. Asafoetida is grown mostly in Iran and Afghanistan from where it is exported to the rest of the world. It is a perennial fennel that grows wild to 12ft high, in large natural forests where little else grows. It has fine leaves and yellow flowers. The roots are thick and pulpy and also yield a similar resin to that of the stems, it is said the roots look like “carrots”. All parts of the plant have a distinctive stinky smell. The juice of the plant is not collected till the plant is at least four years old. In the spring, March/April, just before the flowering occurs, the stalks are cut close to the root. The plant can yield up to 2lbs of resin out of the root once it is pulled out and dried up.

Asafoetida Uses & Scientific Evidence For
In Ayurvedic medicine, Asafoetida is used to treat hysteria, nervous disorders, flatulence, flatulent colic, digestion, and spasmodic affections of the bowels. It is also used to treat whooping cough, pneumonia, bronchitis, and asthma as well. In Ayurvedic, Western, and Chinese medicine this resin is effective in treating worms and other intestinal parasites. Asafoetida has reputation for expelling wind from the stomach and relieves stomach spasms. In the 19th century it was commonly used to treat hysterical women with mood swings, depression, a digestive weakness. In Ayurvedic medicine, it is highly regarded as a condiment and medicinal remedy for various conditions. Traditional Chinese herbalists say this resin enters the liver, spleen, and stomach channels where it stimulates the intestinal, respiratory, and nervous systems. Asafoetida has digestive, sedative, stimulant, antispasmodic, expectorant, emmenagogue (promoting menstrual discharge), and vermifuge (expelling worms or other parasites in the intestines) properties.
