It is suggested in reports from the 19th Century that the plant called Sarracenia purpurea (also known as Pitchers plant) was successfully used in the United States as a botanical preparation for smallpox infections. The name Pitchers plant is due to the plant likes to grow along water sources and it fills itself with water to attract and capture insects.
In 2012, the Public Library of Science tested the plant against the smallpox and monkeypox virus and found it to contain a natural inhibitor to the viruses. The research stated it used a tincture of 4 to 6 doses per day with speedy and effective results No severe side effects were reported and did not harm healthy cells.
"In this study, we demonstrated that Sarracenia purpurea extract was able to effectively inhibit viral replication and viral induction effect of the orthopox viruses." Public Library of Science, 2012 (PLOS ONE journal 10.1371, March 9, 2012)
