The Healing Wonders of Herbs -a look at burdock


This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series The Healing Wonders of Herbs

Burdock is another herb I wish to highlight. The root is used in the treatment of a host of ailments and is reputed to be one of the best blood purifiers around. It rapidly purges the blood of toxins. Liberal consumption of the tea will clear almost any skin disease. Burdock is one of the chief herbs used in treating gout, rheumatism, syphilis, gonorrhea, canker sores and leprosy.

Burdock, like chickweed, is also a diuretic. Although in my experience there was no significant increase in urine flow. It is reputed to be excellent at reducing flesh. I must admit that I have not noticed this effect. But then again I was not consuming it for this purpose, neither did I have excessive pounds to shed. Nonetheless, those who are extremely overweight may consider including burdock in their weight loss regimen, as it may assist in getting them to their weight loss goals faster.
