Blessed Thistle Benefits Cnicus benedictus
blessed Thistle Cnicus Benedictus
The name Blessed Thistle likely came from the idea that the plant itself is a blessing. Its history of medicinal use is evidence of this ideology. It's scientifically referred to as Cnicus benedictus. It's no wonder people prefer the common nickname over the scientific tongue twister of a
name. This herb has been utilized as a "galactogogue."
Galactogogue is a term used to label any substance that promotes lactation in humans
and other animals. There is science behind these species. Its active ingredient is a compound known as "Cnicin". Cnicin is a naturally occurring
chemical that exist within the organic material. It's produced by the plant using the suns energy, water, and air. A crude extract of it contains about .2% cnicin. In Ontarioa Canada it's use is
suggested by public health nurses as well as the Canadian Breastfeeding Foundation. Another fascinating wonder known as fenugreek is also suggested for increasing
lactation in nursing mothers.
It's also used in holistic medicine to treat digestive ailments caused from insufficient secretion of stomach acid. Today, herbalist agree
that it's helpful for loss of appetite, upset stomach, and gas. It's often suggested to use it before the symptoms occur in order to
prevent them. It has also been shown to be an antibacterial agent. Finally, it's also suggested to normalize the menstrual cycle, amenorrhea, and the absence of menstruation after the onset of the cycle. It may show promise with the following: Helping regulate menstrual cycle, treating liver problems, improving appetite, lowering fevers, and stopping bleeding.
Precautions: Although this wonderful gift is suggested for increasing lactation, it's advised not to be used during pregnancy. People with allergic reactions to artichokes
should avoid the use of this one. Anyone considering using alternative medicine should consult a healthcare provider before use. These treatment methods can interfere with prescription medications.
Pharmaceuticals and botanicals generally do not mix well and should not be combined without thorough research and permission from a trained healthcare
Herbal medicine has been studied by University students around the globe. In fact, a lot of the modern medicines people use today are derived from botanicals. A few examples of this
include Morphine, Aspirin, and Penicilin. Morphine is extracted from the Opium Poppy. Aspirin
is made from an acid found in the back of the White Willow Tree. Finally, Penicilin is made
from a fungus that grows on oranges!
Like any other botanical, it should be embraced by science, phytochemistry, and other critical areas of research. I see no reason why society should
not fully embrace these sacred and historic remedies. They have been utilized for centuries with many success stories. Today, these remedies are being researched more so than ever.
