Podbiał znany był już w starożytności. Naparem z rośliny leczyli znani medycy - Hipokrates, Galen i Pliniusz Starszy. Także wdychanie dymu przez rurkę palących się liści i korzeni podbiału zalecane było jako lekarstwo na suchy, ostry kaszel. We wszystkich chorobach piersiowych stosowany był jako środek wykrztuśny. Znajdował zastosowanie przy astmie i przewlekłym kaszlu, a także podczas zapalenia oskrzeli. Wysuszone i zwinięte liście podbiału były także palone - tak jak papierosy. Podbiał stosowany zewnętrznie pomagał w leczeniu zmian skórnych: ran, czyraków, wrzodów, ropni, odcisków i oparzeń. Był zalecany w przypadku pękających brodawek u kobiet karmiących oraz w łagodzeniu uporczywych bólów głowy.
