About the Plant:
Native to Canada and the United States, this herb grows as far south as Florida. It grows to a height of 8 feet with deeply serrated leaves and is topped by cream-white spiked flowers. The herb is harvested in the fall after the fruits have ripened. The plant's roots and rhizome should be cut lengthwise and dried.
Black snake root is used to ease the pain of childbirth and menstrual cramps, and because it was used by the Indians, received the name Squaw Root. It relaxes the female reproductive system and is used to relieve hot flashes during menopause. Black snake root is also used for the relief of rheumatic pains, neuritis, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. In small doses, it improves digestion and appetite, while larger doses augment the secretions of the intestines, kidneys, skin, and mucous membranes.
Edgar Cayce Health Care Philosophy:
Edgar Cayce recommended black snake root as a digestive aid working especially with the stomach, liver and lacteal ducts. Black snake root was mentioned in approximately 51 readings between 1922-1943 with a peak utilization in 1922 and a notable decline thereafter.
"Then the essence of the black snake root is an active principle with the lacteal ducts that make for secretions in the system that stimulate a capillary circulation..."
"... Black Snake Root 1/2 ounce - this being as an emit, and as an active force in gastric juices, in the combination with the others."
1/2 - 1 ml (approximately 14-28 drops) in a small amount of water, twice daily.
Serving size: 1/2-1 ml (approximately. 14-28 drops); approximately 60 servings per container.
