January Herb of the Month
Your blood is your river of life. The health of your blood is critical. It is the chief neutralizing agent for bacteria and toxic wastes. Many diseases are the result of blood toxins. The three blood cleansing systems are the liver, the kidneys and the lymph glands. To stay healthy, we need to keep these cleansing systems in good working order.

Burdock Root (Arctium lappa)There are several detoxification and cleansing herbs available. For the herb of the month, I have chosen Burdock Root, one of the most powerful and reliable blood tonics. It is used as a specific in all blood cleansing and detoxification combinations.

Burdock Root (Arctium lappa)

Part Used:  Root

Effective Forms:  Tincture, Tea, Capsules

Burdock Root is an important anti-inflammatory herb. It is useful as part of a wider treatment for rheumatic complaints, especially where they are associated with psoriasis. It may be used for arthritis, gout and rheumatism to excrete uric acids.
As an alterative or adaptogen herb, Burdock Root will restore body functions and vitality by correcting and improving blood composition. It supports and stimulates the liver, gall bladder and spleen and is used to also stimulate and cleanse the lymphatic system.

As a bitter, it will stimulate and tone the digestive system to produce healthful counteractive juices and secretions, such as bile.

As a diuretic, Burdock Root stimulates kidney and bladder activity thereby increasing the flow of urine.

Burdock Root is also a laxative and is considered a hypoglycemic herb; an herb with the ability to lower blood sugar levels.

As a diaphoretic, it will induce increased perspiration, a process of internal cleansing. Toxic wastes are eliminated via the pores of the skin thus assisting kidney function.
In general, Burdock Root will move the body to a state of health, removing such indicators of systemic imbalance as skin problems and dandruff.

Health Benefits of Burdock

Let's take a closer look at the impressive health benefits of this herbal plant.

Regulates Blood Pressure
One of the aspects of burdock that doesn't get enough attention is its impressive ability to lower blood pressure. The plant*s high concentration of potassium, a vasodilator, helps to relieve tension within the cardiovascular system by relaxing the blood vessels and arteries, thereby helping to prevent atherosclerosis, heart attack, and stroke.

Aids in Digestion
The most well-known use of burdock is as a digestive aid for many reasons. Firstly, the high concentration of fiber in it helps to stimulate the digestive system and moves food smoothly through the bowels, thereby relieving constipation and preventing bloating, cramping, and ulcers. Insulin, a particular type of fiber found in burdock, is able to reduce inflammation in the gut and eliminate many types of harmful bacteria that can cause diarrhea and gastrointestinal problems.

Controls Diabetes
Although all types of fiber are able to regulate the balance of insulin and glucose in the body, insulin is particularly effective and has been directly connected to reducing the development and severity of diabetes and diabetes-related symptoms. The significant levels of insulin in burdock can also lower overall blood cholesterol by eliminating it from the body, thereby protecting your cardiovascular system.

Detoxifies the Liver
The chemicals that give burdock its bitter taste, also stimulate bile production and digestive juices in the gut, which helps the liver to rapidly process toxins and flush them from the system. Clearing toxins from the blood is one of the main purposes of the liver, and burdock's organic compounds and components have been directly linked to improving this function.

Skin Care
One of the most common side effects of constipation, high toxicity in the blood, or poor dietary habits is skin inflammation, manifesting as spots, pimples, acne, rashes or discoloration. Many herbalists recommend burdock root supplements and herbs for the treatment of skin conditions, as this powerful herb can solve the underlying problems of toxicity or constipation in a fast and efficient way, leading to clearer, healthier skin.

Promotes Hormone Balance
Having a hormone disorder can be destructive and difficult to your life. To avoid that, you should add foods and herbs to your diet that can regulate hormonal activity in the body. Burdock is able to help the liver metabolize certain hormones, like estrogen, which can re-balance the body's hormone levels. Excess estrogen is the cause of various dangerous or even deadly hormonal disorders, so adding some burdock root to your weekly diet is never a bad idea!

Boosts Immunity

It has significant levels of vitamin C and vitamin E, both of which act as antioxidants in the body to eliminate free radicals, which means that burdock is a major booster of our immune system. These antioxidants have been linked to preventing infections, lowering one's risk of cancer, supporting proper growth, and repairing the body's cells and tissues.

Word of Caution:  Although this is rare, there are limited allergies to burdock, so be sure to consult a doctor before adding it to your health regimen. Also, for people using potassium-sparing diuretic therapy, eating too much of this herb (with its significant levels of potassium) may aggravate the system and result in potassium toxicity. As always, everything should be consumed in moderation.
