Medicinal Plants Yarrow Achillea Millefolium
Yarrow ( Achillea millefolium )
Yarrow is believed to help boost the human immune system, treat wounds, and common illnesses. The herb has a long history of use among many cultures as a medicinally active botanical. Native Americans believed in Yarrow's healing power and also used it is a recreational stimulant. Yarrow contains the alkaloid Salicylic acid which is highly soluble in water. Salicylic acid is a white, crystalline solid organic compound that exist naturally in multiple plants of many species in nature. Salicylic acid is used in the production of synthetic over the counter pharmaceutical products like aspirin.
A French pharmacist known as Hendri Leroux, and Raffaele Piria, an Italian chemist first isolated the active alkaloids of the Salicylic family in 1828. A Greek physician known as Hippocrates discussed extracts from Willow Bark in the 4th century BC, extracts that contained the same family of alkaloids found in Yarrow (Achillea Millefolium). Hippocrates spoke of the power the extract had for easing aches, pains, and reducing fevers. What's truly incredible about these alkaloids is that they occur in many holistic plants within nature. A few of the other plant species that contain these alkaloids include: meadowsweet ( Filipendula ulmaria ), White Willow ( Salix alba ) and Rosemary.
I think these holistic health pratices that make use of plants should be mainstream knowledge. So many people laugh at the idea of holistic medicine. They don't understand that there science behind it. Phytochemist have been isolating and studying compounds from these plants for some time now. The big pharmaceutical companies also have a great interest in these natural wonders. Many modern pharmaceutical drugs are made thanks to plants. Nature is a pharmacy that has been in buisness way longer than these big companies have.
