what are wild indigo supplements for?

Many Suggested Uses: Wild indigo is an herb advocated by some for various infections (diphtheria, influenza, upper respiratory tract infections, scarlet fever, malaria, typhoid) and crohn's disease. Some people apply wild indigo directly to the skin for ulcers, sore and painful nipples and for cleaning wounds. However, data is insufficient at present to support these uses.
