Buckthorn (Alder)

Buckthorn, or alder, is a tall shrub native to northern Europe. The bark of alder buckthorn is removed, cut into small pieces, and dried for one year before being used medicinally.

Buckthorn has been used as a cathartic laxative in Northern and Central Europe for centuries. It is still widely used today for constipation and resulting conditions such as hemorrhoids and anal fissures. Buckthorn stimulates contractions of the colon (peristalsis) and increases water content during stool formation.

A closely related shrub, cascara sagrada, is more widely known in North America due to its origins and cultivation on the Pacific coast of Canada and the United States.
 

Directions

Stir 1/4 of a teaspoon into a glass of water and consume 3 times daily, with meals.
 

Cautions

Do not use if you are taking water pills, as Black Currant Leaf can increase the amount of water loss from the body.

Avoid Buckthorn if you have an intestinal obstruction, an acute inflammatory intestinal disorder such as Crohn's Disease, ulcerative colitis, appendicitis, or any abdominal pain of unknown origin.

Not for use by children under 12.

Buckthorn can cause abdominal pain or discomfort. If it does, reduce the dosage.

Do not take Buckthorn for more than 1 to 2 weeks without consulting a doctor. Long-term use can lead to potassium deficiency, intestinal dysfunction, heart problems, kidney disease, swelling, and bone problems.

Avoid combining Buckthorn with other medications that flush water and potassium from the body, including diuretics such as Diuril and Lasix, steroid drugs such as prednisone, and licorice root.

Potassium plays an important role in regulating the heart, so depleting it through long-term use of laxatives can affect the action of certain heart medications. There could be an increase in the effect of drugs such as digitalis and digoxin (Lanoxin). Medications taken to steady the heartbeat could also be affected.

Consult with your doctor before using Buckthorn while pregnant or breastfeeding.

Do not use when the colon is already empty.

Rhubarb Root may cause urine to appear yellow or red, but this is common and no cause for concern.
