Fennel is an effective treatment for respiratory congestion and is a common ingredient in cough remedies.

It is also used for cancer patients after radiation and chemotherapy treatments to help rebuild the digestive system. Fennel relaxes the smooth muscle lining the digestive tract (making it an antispasmodic). It also helps expel gas.

It is a tested remedy for gas, acid stomach, gout, cramps, colic and spasms. Fennel seed ground and made into tea is believed to be good for snake bites, insect bites or food poisoning. Excellent for obesity. It increases the flow of urine. It is gargled for hoarseness and sore throats.

Live Strong  gives an interesting historical perspective
Fennel was held in high esteem among the ancient Greeks, who used it to enhance longevity, strength and courage. A great ancient battle was fought in a field where fennel grew wild and named the Battle of Marathon after the Greek name for the revered plant marathron. Fennel was used in medieval times to ward off witchcraft and evil spells.
