Golden Seal – Herbal Supplement

December 30, 2009 at 2:39 pm 1 comment

One of my favorite herbs lately is Golden Seal.  My usual go to remedy has and will continue to be Silver Shield however I’ve noticed and you may have noticed that these “bugs” are mutating and are even more difficult to eradicate. Even natural medicine is needing to adjust what to use for these things.  That means we turn to other herbs or a combination of herbs and Silver Shield.

Golden Seal is one of those herbs that is very effective for so many types of germs including bacteria, virus, fungi etc. It’s traditional uses  include helping to support the mucous membranes that line the respiratory, digestive and urinary tracts. It tonifies, astringes and cools this first line of immune defense in the body.  It’s wonderful for urinary tract infections, yeast infections, and all kinds of other infections.

It’s properties include: Blood Purifier, Antacid, Antibacterial, Antidiabetic, Antimicrobial, Antiparasitic, Antipruritic, Antiseptic, Antiviral, Aperitive, Appetite Stimulant, Astrigent, Bitter, Cholagogue, Detergent, Emmenagogue, Hemostatic, Hypoglycemic, Insulinomimetic, Nervice, Stomachic

Things you should be aware of before taking Golden Seal are:

Golden Seal lowers blood sugar levels which of course is of benefit to some borderline diabetics but avoided in those with hypoglycemia.  It’s been recommended not to take it continuously for more than a week at a time. Also it’s not recommended for pregnant women since it can influence uterine muscles and someone with autoimmune disorders where the immune system is over active ( ie. M.S., Lupus, Hodgkins, etc.)

Of course consult your health care practitioner for dosage and time needed to deal with your specific issue. You can also contact me for more information and I would be happy to test it for you over the phone or e-mail.  I do not diagnose at all I only check with your body to see what it needs to heal.

    One of the best used of Golden Seal are the digestive benefits that it has – digestive problems are one of the basic problems inside our bodies these days because we are eating so much junk all the time. Natural remedies are definitely the best.
