Often theses are conditions that show on the skin such as acne, eczema/psoriasis, rashes and boils. It is also helpful when the lymph is experiencing congestion that results in hard, swollen and painful nodes which is also common with the conditions listed above and in cases of infection. It pairs well with other lymph clearing spring herbs like violet and cleavers. Burdock can eaten as a young root and is known as gobo in japanese, often prepared in long cooked soups and stews. It is rich in the prebiotic starch inulin which feeds the good bacteria - probiotic - of our gut. In supporting a healthy gut to cleansing the blood, burdock’s medicine reaches far and wide in our bodies and is a valuable and safe medicine to use daily.
