Description - Research and Analysis

Medicinal Usage

European settlers deliberately introduced it to the New World, where Natives quickly took it up. The Mohegans drank dandelion leaf tea as a tonic, while other Indians prepared a tea from the roots for heartburn. Because the flowers have such a long blooming season, later settlers introduced the dandelion into the Midwest to provide food for bees.

Dandelion greens are edible, either as a salad or cooked, and furnish a rich source of vitamins A and C. The blossoms are made into wine, and the dried roots can be ground, roasted, and brewed into a coffeelike beverage. The brew from the roots has been drunk as a tonic and for the reputed diuretic effect that accounts for its common French name, pissenlit, or "piss-in-bed." Dried dandelion leaves make a tea that is mildly laxative. But the most notable health use of the dandelion has been the support for liver ailments with a brew made from the roots.

A tea from the leaves can be used as a tonic and to help promote bowel regularity. Although a brew from the roots is given for liver, gallbladder, and other digestive ailments, only its use as a tonic is fairly well substantiated. Dandelion wine can be made from the blossoms.

General Herb Information

Much money is spent on herbicides to remove this cheery flower from lawns and gardens, but the dandelion holds its own, producing seeds with or without pollination and distributing them far and wide.

Habitat: Meadows, roadsides, lawns.

Range: Throughout most of North America.

Identification: A perennial herb with a short stem hidden beneath a basal rosette of deeply toothed leaves. The plant has slender, hollow stalks that bear single heads of tiny, tongue-shaped yellow flowers (March-September). The flowerheads open wide in the morning and close in the evening. When mature, these flowerheads turn into downy white balls of seeds (actually fruits), each with its own parachute that carries it away on the wind.

Uses: The flowers can be boiled to make a yellow dye, the roots a magenta one.

Hi Karen,

There is enough research and information available to go on forever, but I've tried to boil down the information into a few brief paragraphs:

Belladonna is a tall perennial (3-6 feet high) with purple, bell-shaped flowers. It's name, atropa belladonna, is derived from one of the three Fates in Greek mythology who "cut the thread of life". This is significant because belladonna is actually a poisonous plant. The natural chemicals found in the plant have been used by doctors to dilate puipls and for their sedative and relaxant effects on smooth muscle. These properties have also made belladonna useful in relieving tremors in Parkinson's disease patients and as an anesthetic. It is always used with a great deal of caution since the medicinal doses are dangerously close to toxic dosages that can lead to paralysis and death.

Belladonna, as with many other natural substances that would be toxic or near-toxic in regular herbal dosages, is more typically used in homeopathy. Homeopathy, and the underlying "Law of Similars" that governs it, involves extremely diluted concentrations of substances like belladonna (or poison ivy called rhus toxicodendron, for example). These plant substances would be harmful to the body in herbal or medicinal dosages, but when concentrated to the point where nothing remains but their "energy imprint", they are used to relieve a variety of disorders. Homeopathic belladonna has been used to relieve everything from infections, fevers, flu, and headaches to labour pains, nephritis, cystitis, and teething in infants.

Dandelion is highly regarded by the herbal practitioner, if not by the gardener, and needs no description in terms of the physical characteristics of the plant. The leaf and the root are both used medicinally (the flower has been used but not nearly as much), but typically dandelion root is favoured. Dandelion is cultivated primarily for liver, kidney, and gall bladder complaints and has been used to relieve gout, kidney stones, obesity, hypertension, arteriosclerosis, and high choletserol. The expert panel in Germany known as the Commission E recommends the use of dandelion for liver disorders, appetite loss, indigestion, and fluid retention. Some research has pointed to the diuretic, antiviral, antifungal, and even immunity building properties of dandelion as well. It is, for good reason, one of the safest and most popular herbs.

I Hope that helps!
