Black Oman or Comfrey...
It generally grows on wet meadows and field borders, in damp pits and near water. We see it bloom near fences and dumps throughout the summer.
The root and the leaves of the plant are used in traditional medicine in many parts of the world.
In Japan, the plant has been harvested and used as a traditional medicine for more than 2,000 years… …
It was originally called "braided bone" and people used it for healing:
- Muscle sprains - Bruises - Burns - Joint inflammation
Europeans have also used comfrey to treat inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and gout. Some traditional healers also use it to treat diarrhea and other stomach ailments
As a deep root crop, the shrub is difficult to eradicate. The roots are dug in spring or autumn. They should be picked up from below with a sharp shovel.
The fresh herb is collected before and during flowering.
Since the shrub is also called black root in the vernacular, it should not be confused with the Spanish black root, which is grown in vegetable gardens and is intended for cooking.
The tincture of heather, which one can easily prepare oneself, has a wonderful power.
Patients who for many years have been treated for rheumatism and swelling of the joints with all sorts of excellent means and have not recovered, find an ambulance in the tincture of the herb.
But the leaves of the Black Oman , scalded and applied as a warm paste on stiff limbs, help at night if the pain is caused by overload, sprain, sprain or stroke.
The Roots of the Comfrey herb
The roots can also be used to make tea for internal use in treatment of bronchitis, digestive disorders, gastric bleeding and pleurisy.
During the day, we can drink two to four glasses in small sips.
For stomach ulcers, a mixed tea of 100 g of herbs, 50 g of calendula and 50 g of comfrey is recommended
Comfrey is not recommended for internal use due to liver damage, or for over sensitive people.
Patients with hypersensitivity or allergic reactions to the plant should avoid both internal and external use and always consult with a specialist if it is good to be used by them.
The use of the herb as a remedy could be in great help to our general health or not depending on the condition of our liver. So before any use of the Black Oman it is good to remember we should check out our liver condition before hand.
