Goldenseal Root, Cut (Hydrastis Canadensis)


Golden Seal is a popular herb that has a long history of medicinal use. Beginning with the Native Americans, Golden Seal was used to treat skin disorders, digestive problems, liver conditions, and even eye irritation. Early documentation also suggests that the Cherokee applied it to the treatment and cure of some cancers as well. This led to Golden Seal becoming popular during the 1800`s, particularly in the treatment of assorted illnesses of the stomach, with some also regarding it as somewhat of a magical cure for cancer before these treatment methods fell out of popularity. Modern usage of Goldenseal by herbalists tends to revolve around the fact that it is quite useful in treating infections of mucus membranes, such as the mouth, the sinuses, the throat, the intestines, the stomach, and so on. It can also be used in treating minor wounding and fungal infections of the skin. Goldenseal should not be used by those who are pregnant or experience high blood pressure.
