Plant of the Month: Teasel Root
(Dipsacus sylvestris, Dipsacus follonum)
Indigenous to Europe, this hardy bi-annual has naturalized to much of North America. With its beautiful rosette of leaves and its thorny broad stem, Teasel's flower spike can reach the impressive height of 6+ feet.
Throughout the years, Teasel Root has been used for a vast number of health concerns. Topically it can be used to alleviate warts, fistulas and sores. Internally it is pain relieving, stimulating to the nervous system, anti-inflammatory, appetite promoting and assists in the removal of liver obstructions. Within the realms of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Teasel Root is often used to treat traumatic injury to the joints and muscles (through tonification of the kidneys and liver blood).
Currently, Teasel Root's claim to fame is its efficacy in treating Lyme Disease. This powerful plant is incredibly helpful in reducing chronic inflammation of the muscles associated with Lyme. Another impressive feat is Teasel's ability to pull bacteria from muscle tissue and release it into the blood stream, where the immune system and anti-bacterial agents can eradicate it.
