Medicinal gold from Argentina

Everybody who has researched wild edible plants or herbal medicine has heard of the plant horsetail. Since being recommended by the Roman physician Galen, several cultures have employed horsetail as a folk remedy for kidney and bladder troubles, arthritis, bleeding ulcers, and tuberculosis. The Chinese use it to cool fevers and as a remedy for eye inflammations such as conjunctivitis and corneal disorders, dysentery, flu, swellings and haemorrhoids.

I bet you have never heard of Giant horsetail which grows upto 12 feet high and is even more powerful than standard horsetail. Studies show it has potential as a diabetics remedy and to repair nervous system damage.

    Hell if they get loose in your rockery, though! They look rather prehistoric – like Gunnera or Ginkgo and, one might say, terribly un-English! Still, with climate change it’ll probably soon be just right for ‘em.
    Very into range of herbs. Bought two mints last summer – Swiss and Moroccan. In North Wales its predictable that the former sailed through our winter whilst the latter very nearly died and is only now maybe two centimetres tall.

  3. May I just say what a ccomfort to uncover a person that actually understands what they’re discussing over the internet.You definitely
    understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people realloy need to look at this and understand this
    side of your story. I was surprised you’re not more popular since you most certainly
    have the gift.
