Binding spells, health, and cursing

 

Knotweed is a safe and effective astringent and diuretic herb that is used mainly in the treatment of complaints such as dysentery and haemorrhoids.

It is also taken in the treatment of pulmonary complaints because the silicic acid it contains strengthens connective tissue in the lungs.

The whole plant is anthelmintic, astringent, cardiotonic, cholagogue, diuretic, febrifuge, haemostatic, lithontripic and vulnerary.

It was formerly widely used as an astringent both internally and externally in the treatment of wounds, bleeding, piles and diarrhoea.

Its diuretic properties make it useful in removing stones.

An alcohol-based preparation has been used with success to treat varicose veins of recent origin.

The leaves are anthelmintic, diuretic and emollient. The whole plant is anthelmintic, antiphlogistic and diuretic.

The juice of the plant is weakly diuretic, expectorant and vasoconstrictor.

Applied externally, it is an excellent remedy to stay bleeding of the nose and to treat sores.

The seeds are emetic and purgative.

Recent research has shown that the plant is a useful medicine for bacterial dysentery. Of 108 people with this disease, 104 recovered within 5 days when treated internally with a paste of knotweed.
