Goldenrod, a.k.a. Woundwort, is a herbaceous perennial plant of the daisy family (Asteraceae). There are over 100 varieties of Goldenrod. It is a arduous, herbaceous plant of agreeable odor and fierce taste which can grow to 1 meter (3ft) tall. For medicinal purposes, the plant is harvested at the beginning of the blooming period (August) and then dried in bunches.

Goldenrod has distinct diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties as a result of the bio-active ingredients which include saponins, phenolic glycosides (e.g. Leiocarposide, Virgauresoide A, Triterpensaponin, flavanoids), Rutin, Quercetin and various bitterns as well as tanning agents. It is well indicated for the above disorders; a cleansing program is recommended with any infectuous disease (especially those of the urinary tract), with kidney stones and grains, with rheumatism, lack of energy, allergies.

History: This plant was cultivated originally in the Middle East where it was part of the medical system. In the 15th and 16th centuries it was commonly used in Europe to heal wounds. The use for treatment of kidney and urinary bladder disorders was first discovered by Arnaldus de Villanova, a 13th century physician, pharmacist and alchemist who practiced in Spain, France and Italy, treating royalty and popes.

Note: During any cleansing program with Goldenrod ensure plenty of water is consumed. Do not use for treatment of edema which are a result of a disorder of the kidney or heart. If the symptoms persist for more than just a few days, or keeps recurring, consult a physician.

Dosage

Take 3-6 capsules daily, with plenty of water.
