A note from @The_Smile_Enthuisiast, longevity coach and co-creator of our Medicinal Herbal Blends.
Red Root is a healing herb that has effective antibiotic, antispasmodic, antiviral, and expectorant properties. I love this healing herb because it’s a powerful lymphatic cleanser! I’m very proactive at regularly utilizing the herbs which help to cleanse the garbage out of my lymphatic system.
As someone who suffered with sinus infections, chest infections, and bronchitis, I was always looking for healing herbs which would shorten the duration of any bouts of sickness I experienced—especially in the respiratory department. Red root is great for knocking down episodes of sinusitis and bronchitis. Since it has antispasmodic properties, it was a key healing herb for me to use when I experienced painful cramps from menstruation.
Red root is great for helping to prevent or shorten the duration of colds, flu, and respiratory infections. It has the ability to help remove phlegm and mucus from the respiratory tract and sinus passages. As an added bonus--red root also works well for digestive ailments, especially gas, and bloating.
So what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use red root for?
In addition to sinusitis, bronchitis, and painful periods-- If I suffered with urinary tract infections, liver problems, mononucleosis, chicken pox, fever, nosebleeds, headaches, and asthma, I would be bringing in the red root. If I was dealing with muscle spasms, leg cramps, constipation, indigestion, or abdominal pain, I would make sure I was utilizing this antispasmodic healing herb daily.
Medical Medium says that red root is very effective at eliminating ovarian and breast cysts from the body. He also notes that this healing herb has mild sedative properties which can help alleviate depression and tendencies for insomnia.
Red root is commonly used to treat Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, Hodgkin’s disease and hepatitis. It has also been used in the treatment of STDs such as syphilis and gonorrhea. Red root is particularly beneficial for oral health and has been shown to help prevent canker sores, tooth decay, dental plaque, and gum infections. As a gargle, it can help to prevent or stop strep throat, sore throat, or tonsillitis.
