Osha Root (Ligusticum porteri)

             Osha root is prized by Native Americans for treating many ailments. The Zuni people also use an infusion of the root for body aches. In ceremonies that involve healing, the root is also chewed by the tribes medicine man. It's also used by modern herbalist for sore throats. I've added it to some homemade infusions for use in a Vicks Vaporizer machine, and it works great.


It also induces sweating, and makes a great additive to infusions for preventing the development of a cold or flu like symptoms. Like many other mucilage containing herbs, it's great for helping coughs become more productive. Mucilage is a chemical made by plants. It can be made into a tincture by soaking the root in everclear, or made into a decoction by boiling for 10-30 minutes. The tincture is said to be better for body aches. It's the different preparation methods which yield higher concentrations of specific alkaloids and chemicals.


Nature is a highly sophisticated pharmacy that is produces more medicinal compounds than human kind ever could. Some of the highly advanced phytochemicals that Osha Root produces throughout the span of its lifetime include: Volatile and essential oils, Ferulic acid, Phytosterols, Lactone glycoside, and Terpenes. It is these gifts created by the divine forces of the cosmos that too many take for granted, or rule off as "unintelligent coincidence". The pharmaceutical industry is proof that human beings can not perfect naturally recurring phytochemical constituents.


Each one of these phytochemicals have their own medicinal properties. They have been studied by phytochemist. By the way, phytochemistry is the study of the medicinal chemicals that these herbs create. Feel free to correct people when they mindlessly chant the mantra that "there's no scientific evidence behind that". Encourage them to utilized academic journals and google's built in 'scholarly' feature.

It seems to me that illness in general, is unnatural. I also believe that good health is something that comes with a natural life-style. I'd stay away from the deceptions of the modren world if I were you.
