Weeds & Wellness...Burdock

March 28, 2011
               Did you know…. Burdock (arctium lappa) got its name from the Greek word ‘arctos’ (bear) for its furry fruit and the Latin word ‘lappare’ (to grab) for its tenacious burrs. One of its “slang” names is Beggars’ Buttons… do you think it
may have spurred the invention of “Velcro”? 
               Although this plant inspires more consternation than celebration… burdock is a prized, centuries old herbal remedy used both internally and externally. Burdock is a major consideration when looking at a botanical approach to cancer or many other chronic dis-eases. From the root & leaves to the seed itself, it has proven to be a great ally in the natural remedy field.  
Burdock has and is still used by some for scaly skin conditions like chronic dandruff, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis, as well as bacterial and fungal infections. Burdock has an abundance of minerals especially iron, making it valuable for the blood. It is a good blood and lymphatic cleanser and is used for arthritis, rheumatism, sciatica and lumbago. It is also used to promote kidney and liver functions, by helping these organs filter the blood, eliminating harmful acids.
               Burdock seed can induce sweating, therefore it is used to clear fevers and heat conditions (Yang dis-eases) such as boils, styes, carbuncles, canker sores and infections.
               The Japanese commonly eat the root as a carrot-like vegetable called ‘gobo’. The Chinese use it to eliminate excess nervous energy and for its aphrodisiac properties.
               The leaves are great pain relievers when used topically for everything from poison ivy and arthritis to 3 degree burns. Some skin irritation may occur. However, there is a process to which burns and wounds are cared for that alleviates both pain and scarring.
               Burdock is ruled by Venus and its element is Water. Spiritually, it offers many opportunities for healing. It will help the emotions and water self to flow more freely while nurturing the self to be more content and stable.  It can help us see the true value in one’s life, finding inner peace and contentment.
               In the 16 Century, the British Herbalist, John Gerard, recommended that men eat the raw root to “increaseth seed and stireth up lust”. A century later, Nicholas Culpepper suggested that mashed and salted burdock root “helpeth those that are bit by a mad dog”.     Hhhmmmm.

I am assembling a limited time video for an exhibition hall I work for and I am utilizing the free music that accompanied my altering program however I was thinking about whether I could utilize other music from better writers/craftsmen Would I be able to utilize 30 seconds of a melody for advancement without getting in a bad position, or do I require the rights to utilize it.

I tell you a funny thing about the word WEED. You know what when people listen this word in common life they thought that is the smoking weed or some bad thing to smell. Like bad drugs. But believe me 20% of the medicine are making from it.
