(NaturalNews) One of the most revered herbs in Western Herbology is the herb burdock root. Indeed burdock root, as attested to by many natural practitioners, is a most effective blood cleanser or blood purifier. It is extremely beneficial to make a tea out of the root and to drink 2-3 cups per day to help purify the blood, especially in cases of any type of infection or skin disorder. For without clean and pure blood it is impossible to have good health.

The plant is native to Europe and Asia but has been introduced and naturalized in all temperate parts of the world according to Mark Pedersen in his work, Nutritional Herbology.

Writing of burdock root further Pederson says, "Western herbalists have long used burdock for its demulcent(a substance that soothes tissue) action both externally and internally and for is alterative(cleansing or purifying) effects on the blood and urinary system. The most popular Western use of burdock root is as a primary herb in blood purifier formulas."

The Sheer Power OF Burdock Root

The famed Dr. Edward E. Shook, N.D., D.C. in the work Advanced Treatise In Herbology wrote, "nature has not produced for us many herbs whose food and medicinal value equal this one. It's ancient history as a reliable remedy for bad blood, ulcers, tumors, and many skin diseases such as what we today call eczema, psoriasis, acne, lupus, etc., to say nothing of internal disorders such as syphilis, leprosy, cancer, etc., and the modern proofs of its marvelous efficacy in the treatment of humanities most fearsome and loathsome diseases is positive proof that very few if any herbs are more virtuous or possess more curative powers."

It should be noted that Dr. Shook was a very successful natural healer. In fact, the famed and imminent herbalist and naturopath Dr. John Christopher, N.D., was a student of Dr. Shook. Dr. Shook went on to say, with regard to burdock root: "to our certain knowledge, it has cured syphilis after all other treatments had failed. For the successful treatment of chronic skin diseases, especially eczema, burdock has no equal, while for boils its quick alterative and curative effect is truly remarkable."

Burdock root has also been combined with high dosages of vitamin C to clear up stubborn staph infection. Additionally, it has been used effectively by natural practitioners in helping to normalize blood sugar levels in those with diabetes.

Nutritional Profile Of Burdock Root

The nutritional profile of burdock root is one that includes at least 26 known substances. Burdock root contains aluminum, ash, calcium, carbohydrates, chromium, magnesium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, vitamins A, vitamin C, zinc, and many other nutrients.

Few Herbs Equal Burdock Root

Indeed it could be understood in light of the many nutrients contained in burdock root why Dr. Shook was compelled to declare, "nature has not produced for us many herbs whose food and medicinal value equal this one".
