Nature pleas­es with fresh herbs, and it’s time to remem­ber the ben­e­fi­cial prop­er­ties of herbs!

Herbal med­i­cine is a great way to help your­self with min­i­mal harm. After all, phy­tother­a­py “treats” our body more gen­tly than med­i­cines, and does not bring such a bunch of side effects. Herbs work well with each oth­er and with med­i­cines. In col­lec­tions, they often rein­force each oth­er’s action and are suit­able as an aid. Know­ing which herbs are use­ful for var­i­ous ail­ments, you can use them effec­tive­ly to main­tain good health. Whether it is herbal col­lec­tion, tinc­ture, phy­to­bath, home­o­path­ic prepa­ra­tion or dietary sup­ple­ment.

There are so many use­ful prop­er­ties of this herb that you can’t tell by its mod­est appear­ance. And it is not for noth­ing that its Latin name lit­er­al­ly sounds like “pain in the legs”: it is use­ful for gout, rheuma­tism, and var­i­ous dis­eases of the joints. In addi­tion to joint ail­ments, gout tinc­ture helps to get rid of dis­eases of the uri­nary organs. The tinc­ture is pre­pared as fol­lows: 2 table­spoons of herbs in 1 cup of boil­ing water, hold for 15 min­utes in a water bath. Strain and squeeze, dilute with a glass of water. With rheuma­tism, gru­el from grass applied to a sore spot helps. And gout is added to var­i­ous dish­es: it helps to reg­u­late meta­bol­ic process­es in the body and strength­en the immune sys­tem.
This herb has no con­traindi­ca­tions, it is not rec­om­mend­ed only dur­ing preg­nan­cy.
