Nature Cleavers / Bedstraw /Goosegrass Extract
Product: Nature Cleavers / Bedstraw /Goosegrass Extract Brief Introduction Cleavers, also known as Goose Grass, Grip Grass, Catch weed, or Bedstraw, is a very valuable plant, being perhaps the best tonic to the lymphatic system available. As a lymphatic tonic with alternative and diuretic action, Cleavers may be used safely in a wide range of problems where the lymphatic system is involved. These include swollen glands (lymphadenitis) anywhere in the body, especially in tonsillitis and adenoid trouble Cleavers is helpful in skin conditions, especially the dry kind such as psoriasis. It is helpful in the treatment of cystitis and other urinary conditions where there is pain, and may be combined with urinary demulcents for this purpose. There is also a long tradition for the use of Cleavers in the effective treatment of ulcers and tumors. This may have its basis in the lymphatic drainage, which helps detoxify tissue. For the lymphatic system, combine this herb with Echinacea or Calendula. For skin conditions, combine Cleavers with Yellow Dock and Burdock. And for diuretic purposes, Cleavers is often used with Buchu Leaf. Cleavers acts directly on the kidneys much like Uva Ursi. Its action is weaker and milder, although its specific action on acute inflammation or irritation of the urinary tract is stronger than most treatments * This information is based on Traditional and Folklore Medicine which uses natural materials to support health.
