About the Plant: The wild cherry tree can grow 50 to 80 feet tall. The leaves are 2 to 5 inches long, finely serrated and smooth. Clusters of pale white flowers are followed by round, red to purple-black, sour-tasting cherries. In young trees the bark is reddish-brown. In older trees the trunks can range from 2 to 4 feet in diameter. The bark is black, aromatic and rough, and naturally separates from the trunk. The bark is harvested in the autumn and the freshly stripped bark has the scent of almonds, which dissipates once carefully dried in the shade.
Uses: Native Americans used wild cherry bark for treating diarrhea and pulmonary problems. Settlers found it helpful in making cough syrup and in external applications as a poultice for treating ulcers and abscesses. Today, herbalists still use wild cherry bark for respiratory problems as an expectorant and remedy for all catarrhal conditions. It is also highly regarded as a digestive aid.
Edgar Cayce Health Care Philosophy: Edgar Cayce recommended wild cherry bark for pulmonary conditions and as an aid to digestion. It was also noted for its role in cleansing and building blood. Wild cherry bark was mentioned in 312 readings between 1921 and 1944. Peak utilization was evident in 1926 with a significant decline in usage thereafter. Various amounts of wild cherry bark was recommended with the following frequency:
... The first ingredient, the Wild Cherry
Bark, is a direct activative force upon the pneumogastrics and the pulmonary system.
... Wild cherry bark is an expectorant and a purifier as combined especially with other ingredients for the blood supply.
... The taking of those properties indicated for the allaying of cold and congestion - as in the cherry, the horehound - will not only aid digestion but stimulate the circulation for the upper portion of the head and through the bronchial area, thus giving a better flow of circulation for the throat and the gums...
... The active principle from the wild cherry bark, with the other ingredients, is a stimulation to the lungs, throat and bronchials, and those organs above the diaphragm.
... To this we would add Wild Cherry Bark (this is to act as an active force with the gastric juices of the stomach, as well as a carrier for the rest of the system, acting with the respiratory system)
... The Wild Cherry Bark is for cleansing the blood supply.
... The action of these properties combined within the system are to act on the effects acquired in the lung forces within clarifying blood. The action of certain properties is to rebuild the Hemoglobin within the blood to give more Leukocytes to the blood, as we find in the bark of Wild Cherry and Sarsaparilla.
