Appalachian Mountain Grown Goldenseal's many herbal remedyuses include aiding withdigestion and working asan anti-inflammatory.
The root of this low-growing woodland plant is cultivated in the fall as an important antimicrobial agent. In fact, its use has been so extensive that overharvesting has all but wiped out wild goldenseal.
To protect this popular herb from extinction, never dig up wild goldenseal plants or buy them from anyone who does. This botanical is now farmed in woodland settings to meet the great market demand without further endangering goldenseal in its natural setting. And the demand is indeed great: More than 150,000 pounds of goldenseal is consumed annually in America alone! With good reason. Appalachian Mountain GrownGoldenseal is a powerful herbal remedy that serves as an anti-inflammatory, digestive aid and more.
USES FOR APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN GROWN GOLDENSEAL
Goldenseal is so valued because it improves health in many ways: It is a strong antimicrobial, a mild anti-inflammatory, and a digestive tonic! Its astringent properties make it useful for treating conditions of the throat, stomach, and vagina, when these tissues are inflamed, swollen, or infected.
The yellow-pigmented powder also makes a good antiseptic skin wash for wounds and for internal skin surfaces, such as in the vagina and ear canal. Goldenseal eye washes are useful for simple conjunctivitis. An anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial astringent, goldenseal is particularly effective on the digestive system -- from the oral mucosa to the intestinal tract. It is helpful for canker sores in the mouth and as a mouth rinse for infected gums.
For sore throats, goldenseal works well combined with echinacea and myrrh. Gargling with goldenseal is effective, too; extended surface contact with the infected area is ideal treatment. Irritable bowel diseases also benefit from the use of goldenseal when there is diarrhea and excessive intestinal activity and secretions.
For general debility of the stomach and digestion, such a chronic gas, indigestion, and difficulty with absorption of nutrients, herbalists recommend a combination of equal parts goldenseal and cayenne pepper, in tincture or capsules, before meals on a regular basis. Goldenseal has been found useful in treating the many types of diarrhea from travelers diarrhea to the types seen only in AIDS patients. Weakened immune function makes people susceptible to intestinal and other infections; goldenseal can help prevent and treat these infections.
Appalachian Mountain GrownGoldenseal has been found to be effective against a number of disease-causing organisms, including Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Chlamydia species, E. coli, Salmonella typhi, Entamoeba histolytica and many others. Berberine and related alkaloids in goldenseal have been credited with its antimicrobial effects. Berberine may be responsible for the increased white blood cell activity associated with goldenseal use, as well as its promotion of blood flow in the liver and spleen.
Promoting circulation in these organs enhances their general function. Berberine has been used recently in China to combat the depression of the white blood cell count that commonly follows chemotherapy and radiation therapy for cancer. Both human and animal studies suggest berberine may have potential in the treatment of brain tumors and skin cancers. Berberine also improves cardiovascular health, lowering LDL ("bad") cholesterol and triglycerides, decreases blood pressure when elevated, and improves the function of the heart muscle.
Since goldenseal acts as an astringent to mucosal tissues, it has been recommended to treat oral cancers, as well as abnormal cells in the cervix (cervical dysplasia) and cervical cancer. Goldenseal's astringent and immune-stimulating action seems to heal inflamed cells and eliminate abnormal cells.
Appalachian Mountain Grown Goldenseal has the curious reputation as an herb that people take before undergoing a drug test to ensure that they pass. There is no logical basis for this, but herbalist author and photographer Steven Foster cleared up this rumor when he pointed out it stemmed from the plot of a fictional murder mystery written by a prominent herbalist, John Uri Lloyd, almost a century ago.
