The Urinary Tract Herb

Chickweed in BulkI am not an expert on herbs but I do try to find those that will work for me rather than taking pharmaceuticals. I am sure Big Pharma would prefer that we take the drugs they manufacture so herbs are not always prescribed or even suggested when we have a problem. I am not suggesting you ignore your physician as that is the last thing I would support but I would like you to discuss the possibility of herbs helping with problems you might have

Chickweed is one of the herbs I like to use as it tastes great. Eat sprigs of Chickweed to help remove toxicity, and congestion. It is also helpful in cleansing the lymphatic system. This is a true value for me in that I have lymphodema.

It is a diuretic and helps to cleanse the kidneys.
