Do it For You

debated, but it might be related to the diuretic qualities of the herb.

Laboratory studies have even shown that burdock root has some anti-tumor effects.
Even the leaves contain antibacterial substances and are used as a poultice for boils
and abscesses. However Burdock root is most famous as a blood purifier. In fact it is
one of the best blood purifiers amongst the herbs. Some consider it-- the "King of
the blood purifiers".

Burdock root is also seen by herbalist and natural healers as a long-term immune
system strengthener, this makes it a wonderful herb to use for the cold and flu
season. It is an antioxidant, and said to have the ability to mildly lower blood sugar
levels (hypoglycemic effect).

It is generally taken as an herbal tea three to five times per day. German authorities
recommend using 2.5g of finely chopped or coarsely powdered per cup of tea (1
teaspoon of the powdered root weighs approximately 2 grams).

Dr. John Christopher writing of this amazing blood cleansing herb said: "It is one of
the best alterative and depurative (blood-purifying) agents in nature but does not
nauseate. Burdock root beneficially influences the skin, soothes the kidneys and
relieves congestions of the lymphatic. It increases the flow of urine and it is a useful
agent for removing excess and fatty (adipose) tissue. "

Because burdock is a mild diuretic, it increases the production of both urine and
sweat, potentially making it useful in treating swelling and fever. In traditional Chinese
medicine, , in combination with other herbs, it is used to treat sore throats, tonsillitis,
colds, and even measles. Medicinally, the herb has been used both internally and
externally for eczema and psoriasis, as well as to treat painful joints.

I have recommended it in combination with very high dosages of Ester C Vitamin C
for stubborn staph infection because it is such a powerful blood cleanser....the results
were very pleasing. There is much more to burdock that you should know.

Imagine the money time and trouble you could save if you knew how to use
amazingly powerful but, simple to use, and inexpensive herbal remedies...Don't
