Oh, Penny, I am so happy that you've found my little article and loved it. I also love that you're using the info to help your dog through a tough time in his life. You have some great questions and I feel terrible as I'm not going to be much help. I have a dog of my own and I try to keep him healthy, but I don't really know enough to recommend dosages.
I do know you can roughly use a teaspoon per 20 pounds of body weight in their food, but I have no clue when it comes to juicing. Probably close to the same, a couple teaspoons in his water each day. Keep your vet informed and I wish you both the best! Thank you so much for your kind reply Charlie!
I have my dog Johnny, down to one Lasix twice a day, from three and his cough is gone, yay! But now, I have a question for me. Since Johnny's medical bills and the cost of Lasix has hurt me financially, I have thus, replaced veggies bought from the store, to me eating not just Dandelion, but also Burdock, Plantain and Red Cover. Do you think that is safe for me to eat them everyday? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. Dandelion and burdock are pretty safe for daily eating, Penny.
Plantain can have some blood thickening effects, so you shouldn't eat a ton of it if you are taking blood thinners or prone to blood clots. A few times a week should be fine and cooking it does reduce some of those effects. Red clover flowers are safe to eat fairly often. The leaves should be eaten less frequently. They tend to have a few phytoestrogens and trace amounts of cyanide. A few times a week for those should be fine too. I'd also suggest purslane.
I love it in salad, soup, sauteed, or even pickled. Animal studies don't mean they will work with humans. That has been more than proven in the past. Dandelion is an amazing diuretic if you use the leafs. The roots have a complete different pharmaceutical effect on the body focusing on the liver. Which I should mention has nothing to do with electrolyte imbalances. As you also mentioned it's very important that all patients check with there MD, DO or ND before incorporating any herbs to their regimen.
I actually love it when people disagree with me as it means they are using their heads. Animal studies should always be taken with a huge grain of salt and even human trials need caveats. Thank you again for reminded people to work with their healthcare professionals when trying any natural remedies. I cannot say it enough. I worked for many years with doctors and have yet to meet one who understood nutrition, let alone what is considered holistic, homeopathic, or natural.
Must we always go to the MD for our needs and approval? These are the guys that are just taking our money just to write down prescription that are from very little effective to killing us slowly. I never though to go to my doctor for approval for I am the customer and I need to approve of him.
Sometimes an MD really does come in handy. They aren't infallible though and ultimately they work for you and they sometimes need gentle reminders of that. So you can really make tea from dandelion? Can that really even taste good? Can you describe taste or is it something completely new?
Dandelion is very good it help solved my liver problem. Am now strong and healthy. I learnt the root too is very good. Do anybody know of that. The stem is edible. It can be a little bitter and fibrous though.
It works well in tea or you can cook it to make it more palatable. Saute it with other veggies or cut it into small pieces and add it to soups. I've personally gotten amazing results with dandelion. Anyone interested in herbal remedies should definitely check out the ebook 10 super herbs that will change your life forever. You can download it for free here: I bought a few of the herbs from the book and my life has changed completely. I have a question and not a reply. It is still best to drink it pure tea. You can chill it and drink it like a cola on an empty stomach two hours after meal or 30 min before meal.
Give it time for our body to absorb the tea 15 to 30 min before eating solid foods it is easy for the body to absorb liquid. I feel that's more effective way of cleansing. Sounds like a genius idea to me, Shannon. You shouldn't lose much in the way of benefits or nutrition. I'm a visual artist, live in miami. Please check my side. I'm working on a art installation relating dandelions, I will plant organic dandelions. I hate to sound like a crazy artist with out a reliable information.
I can't say I read in Wikipedia. I wish you luck with your installation. I don't have any good books for you, but you can try your local library. I'm sure someone there can guide you to many books on dandelions. You can also use Google Scholar to look up articles and studies. Hi, I have chronic gastritis which causes chronic diarrhea. I also have cholesterolosis strawberry gallbladder , and I am symptomatic.. I've been to three gastroenterologists and all of them advised against removing my gallbladder since the tiny polyps aren't large enough to develop into being malignant.. Will the upper right quadrant of my abdomen near the ribs and back have more pain, or will the tea lessen it over time?
The tea can have a laxative effect on some people, but it can also pull excess water from digestion, relieving the problem. You won't really know how it affects you until you try it. I'd also look at natural antibacterials and antiparasitics, like coconut oil, grapefruit seed, pumpkin seed, silver, ginger, turmeric, oregano, thyme, and clove. At the same time take a good probiotic. This may help with the chronic gastritis.
Cholesterolosis may lessen, but this is unsure as doctors don't really know the cause. Hi there Dandelion tea and there is Dandelion root coffee. Dandelion tea is usually a mix of the root and leaf. Dandelion coffee is the roasted root. Both will have benefits, though the tea probably retains more of the benefits. It mainly comes down to your personal preferences and tastes.
I've been eating the greens for years early 80's and sometimes you might find the flower wine. I was told that the Italian dandelion are better tasting, but why? Soil and sun conditions, air from the Mediterranean? WIshthe stores would carry the greens, fresh, I've only found them once here in 8 years. Canned, they have them, but not for me, forget it. And yes, the social media bar on the right is a real pain and can be turned off, it you can get the site tech to do it.
Other sites have removed it after complaints. Italian dandelion isn't a true dandelion, but a chicory species that has similar leaves to dandelion. That may be why they taste so much better. I wish stores would carry the greens too, Phil, but people keep treating this gem like a weed. I'll pass on your suggestion. We're looking at updating our website soon and that should help. There are hundreds of varieties of dandelion, but it probably doesn't make a huge difference, Bryan. First, to the web designer: Not necessary since it has the horizontal icon bar for sharing. The best way to eat Dandelion is in a salad, bitter yes, but tasty.
I can't stand lettuce, it has no taste and not great nourishment. Don't ruin it with salad dressings use a bit of organic olive oil, lemon or apple cider vinegar unfiltered, with the "mother" in it. I don't advice juicing either this plant or spinach because of oxalates, a salad will keep the daily amount right and flavorful. I love the raw greens in salads too. The young plants aren't too bitter and when you grow them yourself they are so flavorful. I'll let the web designer know. Sorry, Michael, there isn't a great answer. At the moment there are few studies and these contradict one another.
I ve really benefitted from this article. It opens my eyes to different ways of keeping up with our health. Am so glad I visited this site. I now have knowledge of different ways to keep our health running good. Ive been looking for a nutritional breakdown for dandelion root coffee I wanted to add it to my diet diary in cron-o-meter , but Im not finding a proper breakdown for dandelion root only the greens. Im particularly interested in its mineral content, but everything Im reading though lots of praise etc is vague and no references.
Sorry, not something I have for you either. Uncommon foods don't get nutritional breakdowns made for them very often. I would assume though that it isn't a huge source of minerals in the coffee or tea form. You are getting zero to a couple calories and very trace amounts of minerals. Dandelion can help lower estrogen when it is too high, but the foods you want to focus on depends very much on where your levels are and where you need them to be. If estrogen is low, then you need to focus on phytoestrogen foods that can raise it, like flax, soy, and legumes.
If progesterone is low, you need to focus less on estrogen-rich foods and increase certain vitamins and minerals, like B, C, zinc, and magnesium.

There are many herbs for each situation too. Talk to your doctor, figure out what you need, and make a plan from there. My doctor did not know about dandelion; i had to inform him of the benefits I have been getting from this super food. I have consistently eaten dandelion mixed with water cress and arugula with lemon juices dressing for some time and has relieved vague pains of my abdominal areas because of fatty liver.
My question is can one eat too much dandelion. I mix organic dandelion greens in my nutri-bullet with frozen fruits and raw walnuts, almond milk and water, and flavored protein powder. Dandelion is great with kale and frozen fruits too. Is it also good to eat high amounts of Dandelion; or not?
Sounds to me like you are doing it right, Brian. I suppose dandelion can be overused in pill and tincture form, but it's considered safe in food amounts. You're using it as a food in salads, smoothies, and meals with other foods, so you are totally doing what you should. Mostly people with an allergy to it need to worry.
As long as you aren't having any allergic reactions, drug interactions, low blood sugar, gastrointestinal problems, or increased bleeding, you are fine. Keep in touch with your doctor and let him or her know if things change. I have consistently eaten dandelion mixed with water cress and arugula with lemon juices dessing for some time and has relieved vague pains of my abdominal areas because of my fatty liver. I mix organic dandelion greens in my nutri-bullet with frozen fruits almond milk and water, and flavored protein powder. I've learned that eating high amounts of kale is good for one's thyroid.
I have been drinking this tea every day to help with my liver. I also have kidney stones due to high calcium. Is it a good idea to drink this since it has a lot of calcium? I am allowed to have cheese which she was gonna take away, but that wasn't happenin!
feel-good, escapist fiction
Dandelion is in the mid-range for oxalates, the calcium that contributes to kidney stones. It's one of those foods that contradicts itself. It is supposed to be helpful for kidney stones by increasing bile production, decreasing inflammation, and increasing urine production, but it does have a small amount of this one compound that may contribute to stone formation. It should be fine, as long as you work with your doctor and keep an eye on how it affects you. Hi there- just quick to say, that I know you want to keep eating cheese but here is something to consider.
Cheese really is very very bad for you as it cloggs up your arteries as it is high in cholesterol and sat fats. Also have you thought of where it comes from Would you consider watch Gary Yourofsky's best ever speech on Youtube I think it may really open your eyes a little to what is going on Sorry, Fi, even though I'm a huge advocate of plant-based living, I do have to tell you that cheese, especially good quality grass-fed cheese, isn't as big of a devil as it has been painted.
There is no link between saturated fats and heart disease. I encourage coconut oil use and consumption for that reason. Cheese does have other issues, such as thickening of mucous and allergens, but the "artery clogging" rhetoric doesn't really fly any longer. I have been recently been diagnosed of hiatus hernia,I have started drinking blended dandilion and garlic Should be fine in moderation normal food amounts , as long as you don't have any side effects and your doctor okays it.
Is it possible to drink dandelion tea for 1 month?
The Books - McCartney Green
Should be fine in moderation, but you'll want to work with your doctor to make sure you don't have any flare ups or problems. You may also want to look into milk thistle and look at your diet. There can be many reasons for swelling, Gayla, so dandelion may not be the right choice for what's causing you edema. I'd recommend adding ginger to your tea to ease inflammation and pain. I'd also try arnica or coconut oil topically on your ankles. Ground dandelion root works really well as a tea. You just pour boiling water over the powder in a tea cup or mug, let it steep several minutes, add a touch of your favorite sweetener, and drink it.
I'm Michael Blake Abraham I found that. I told the hospital in my home town. I asked my doctors to spread the word and do there research I think I may have found a cure for cancer. Do you know if I can get any accredation. I never heard back from those doctors i told. I would love some recognition I tried it myself a number of times and everytime i try it I feel like super man. I have put a lot of input in the plant. I need some applause lol. Thank you everyone so very much. Thank you for trying out the dandelion cure. I could not have done this without all of you. Thank you again you are all very helpful to this clinical trial.
I couldnt be more appreciative. Im so happy to hear you are cured!! I wish i wouldvof know of this plant when my mom was dignosed Sorry, Michael, you probably won't be getting accolades anytime soon. Dandelion may be helpful with certain types of cancer, but there isn't enough evidence to call it a cure yet.
Maybe someday people will recognize your genius. Until then, keep trying to be healthy. My wife uses it for that. It really depends on how high your blood pressure is and the causes. It may be worth a try. Yes, as long as you aren't taking more than you find in food or have any allergies to either. I'm 34 weeks pregnant and two weeks ago started with an incredibly itchy rash on my belly. Some people get it so terribly bad, I'm so scared it's going to spread!
Doctors say there is no cure and it usually clears up a few weeks after delivery. I researched online and discovered Dandelion Root works for many people in curing it. My doctor looked at me like I was crazy and handed me a prescription of Hydrocortizone. I just bought some roasted dandelion root tea. I plan to drink it three times a day. My question is roasted versus not roasted. Is there less benefit to roasted?
Also, most say they used capsules I don't swallow pills well, so I'd prefer tea. Is that just as strong? Also, is dandelion root tea safe for children? My daughter is 2. Thank you so much! Can't wait to show the doctors my cured belly next time I see them!
Roasted usually has a more pleasant flavor, but it won't drastically affect how well it works as far as I know. How is it working for you, Meaghan? It is safe for children as long as you treat it like a food and not a medicine. Let her try a little and see if she likes it and then let her have a little on occasion, but not too often. Dandelion may cause her to wet the bed more often and hamper potty training if you let her have too much.
Good luck with everything. Thanks so much for replying! Drinking a cup of roasted three times a day. So far no change, but I've read that it takes a bit to work. I'll be sure to update you in a week or two: I hope that it helps you. I have heard of your condition and it must be miserable and with weeks left they would be the longest. I've been drinking dandelion for a week now just for my edema flare up and it's pretty much knocked it on the head. I drink roasted dandelion and chicory instead of coffee, I am even so bold as to put cream in it and the cafe next door makes my mocha with it instead of coffee for me.
Dandelion seems like an incredibly useful herb! Where can you find dandelion root? I started exercising 2weeks ago thinking that this would get rid of it. I also drink the tea just about every day. What is the effect of the dandelion plant on an elevated PSA and what effect does it have on prostate cancer? There are many sites out there claiming dandelion might cure prostate cancer. I don't think I buy those, but I do think it could help. Work with your doctor as you or your loved one starts a new food or supplement and good luck to you.
My dog had a cancerous mass removed and a friend advised giving him dandelion root. Is there a difference between giving him a pill or the actual plant ground up. There isn't a huge difference between the two. If you use an actual plant, you will want to make sure it is not sprayed with pesticides. You can mix it into your dog's food, about a teaspoon per 20 pounds of your dog's weight. You can also make a dandelion tea and let your dog drink it in place of water once it has cooled.
Work with your vet to make sure your dog's liver is working well and also make sure your dog has easy access to the outdoors. Dandelion is a diuretic and he or she will have to go to the bathroom more frequently. Good luck and I hope your little one feels better soon.
Dandelion tea will certainly help support liver function, but it won't do much for a fatty liver all on its own. Eating well and exercising will have to be a part of this as well. Hello Charlie, please I ordered for a dandelion tea bag because of my experience with constipation which makes me visit the loo only trice a week. I also drink a lot of water but when I have the urge to pass stool, it is slow in coming out, and i will need to take between 1ltr to 1. I have read a lot about side effects of conventional drugs, so I have completely avoided that root, but I want to use dieting and herbs to eliminate the constipation, which has lasted for over six months.
But you mentioned that Dandelion is not good for intestinal conditions Please can you expatiate? I tried eating carrots, apples, but these two got my feces impacted and I had to eliminate them, including rice, potatoes, meat, chicken, milk, chocolate, refined sugar - I neither drink in fact, I have never drank alcohol nor smoke.
For the past one month I have been eating a lot of black eyed beans with Quaker Oats with natural honey, cooking pumpkin leave and spinach with fish Mackerel , for fruits, I squeeze lime and oranges and drink with the bit. Although the above diets helped soften my stool a bit, I noticed I still had to stimulate myself to pass stool with water Could it be the Oats still causing the constipation?
Can you please point out which of the above diets could still be causing the constipation Please suggest herbal remedies preferably a tea that can act as a stool softener and a cleanser of my bowels that I can get in the U. South East coast that have no side effect I am currently studying in the UK, although I am permanently based in Nigeria. Upon my knowledge, this is the strongest cathartic laxative on our planet. Until know nobody managed to produce any chemical drug with such a strong laxative properties.
Bark of Buckthorn has been used by native Americans as a laxative for centuries and its European cousin Alder Buckthorn was and still is used in Europe. I never tried it because I never had problems with constipation, but I know people who were using it with very good results. I would just try it for several weeks and see how it helps, after all it is a shrub, just one of many other gifts given to us directly from Mother Nature.
Friend had bowel movement problems and Dr told her to eat 2 kiwi fruit each morning to soften stools chefs use it on meat as enzymes tenderise the meat. Sounds like a real conundrum, Bassey. I'd suggest you work with a doctor to make sure you don't have any underlying illness that is contributing to your constipation and dehydration problems.
I can offer some suggestions that may help though. Fiber is great, but sometimes too much can contribute to problems as you've found out. I'm a fan of softer, soluble fiber. Chia seeds are one of the best sources of that. They absorb a ton of water to keep your intestines well hydrated. Green tea, prune juice, aloe vera juice, fenugreek, and fennel all may help as well. Fenugreek and fennel can be used whole as additions to your food or as tea.
You can chew on fennel seeds after a meal to help digestion and freshen breath. There are many teas on the market that are just to help soften stools and stimulate a normal bowel movement without side effects. Smooth Move is one that relies on senna. I often make my own tea for digestion with turmeric, fennel, ginger, and cinnamon. Thanks Charlie, I will look these food items up, with the aim of adding them to my diet Bassey, i have a friend who suffered with chronic constipation.
I read somewhere of a protocol which called for grounded flax seed and kefir for 3 weeks, in the morning, on an empty stomach.
By the second week he was going to the bathroom every day. Try it, it wouldnt hurt. This treatment is also meant to clean your entire colon. Once you finish the treatment, you may continue to do so with the amount of kefir and flax seed desired. Hi Hendy, I have exactly the same as you. Beside targeted therapy pills I am using the following: I started taking black seed oil and drinking dandelion tea about 3 months ago. Taking 3 teaspoons of black seed oil mixed with organic honey also significantly reduces the nasty side effects of targeted therapy pills.
During almost 2 years since they removed one of my kidneys there are no new metastases, except the ones found 2 years ago. Hello Hendy, If you are on facebook, look up the group Solitarius. I know of two people on there that naturally cured themselves of stage 4 cancer. Their stories are amazing! Supplements become tricky once you reach this level of illness, hendy. You will really want to talk to your doctor and make sure your potassium levels, and other electrolytes, are balanced while using dandelion.
There are very few side effects, but it's still a good idea to be safe. Gleta, dandelion leaves and roots can often be found in health food stores. If you can't find them in the produce section, they usually have pills, tinctures, teas, and other forms of them elsewhere in the store. The recommended dose is 3 capsules daily I wanted to start with one to see hoe it will wor. Will I still get the benefits of daddelion root? That's how I start out any new supplement, Sue. You'll still be getting some benefits while you see how you like them.
When I was a teenager I busted the inside of my mouth playing football at a neighbors. I had braces and my inner gums where badly cut up. His Mom gave me a small paper cup of home made Dandelion wine and had me swish it around in my mouth and spit it out. My gums stopped bleeding and most of the pain went away. I have since tried to make my own but never figured out how. But the result was nothing short of amazing. That is very cool, Jim. I wish I'd had some when I had a similar experience with braces while skateboarding for the first time.
I have just tested positive for Hepatitis B, after a test my liver seems fine for now. You'll want to work closely with your doctor as you try natural treatments, Salam. Drink plenty of water and eat fresh, watery fruits as your hydration is important. Ginger helps protect the liver and reduces some of the nausea you will feel. Dandelion and milk thistle are both good for the liver. Turmeric is related to ginger and has some of the same benefits. Coconut oil is a natural anti-viral that may help keep the virus from damaging your liver.
Does roasted dandelion root have the same health benefit eg for liver cleansing as does the raw unroasted root? There might be some denaturing of proteins, but there should still be plenty of the same benefits left in the roasted roots. Dandelion can increase acid and bile production. This isn't the best thing for those suffering from ulcers or bowel obstruction. You need to use some caution when adding new foods to your diet, especially with medical conditions.
My Italian family has been eating dandelions for many generations, my grandparents say that danelions got them through the depression!! I am into juicing and harvest some everyday to juice I love them. My grandparents harvested them during the depression too, Lucy! They really are practically free food most of us ignore.
Charlie, I have a liver cyst. I'm meeting with my GI to discuss results next week. Can you suggest anything else? You'll want to work closely with your doctor as you try new foods. Dandelion, milk thistle, and turmeric are three that I would try in your shoes. I'd also point you toward this article http: Ginger could help with some of the pain, discomfort, and bloating too. I wish you luck, Alan. Which is best for fat burn? Milk thistle or dandelion?
Can they both be taken? I have to take a lot of med. I also have high cholesterol. Neither one of these really burns fat, Dawn. They can help with weight loss as they aid detox and toxins contribute to fat storage. They are low calorie and also help digestion of fats and carbohydrates, so they can help keep weight off. They improve liver function which can help with cholesterol. I believe milk thistle has more evidence related to weight loss, but you certainly can use both.
Work with your doctor to find the best fits for you. I haven't found anything online talking about differences between drinking dandelion root tea and taking a supplement. Is one better than the other? I do have dandelion root tea. It smells good, like roasted sunflower seeds, but it tastes like garbage. I was wondering if the supplement would work just as well, or even better or worse? I like the flavor of the tea, but you can definitely take the supplement if you don't like the taste. I make my tea out of the leaves though, not the root.
I use the root in soups instead. Hi Charlie, Thank you so much for writing this up. I came across your article as a Facebook friend displayed it. I have a few herniated discs, and will get sciatic nerve pain as well as pain in my feet caused from the herniated discs. I also have arthritis in my knees and will be undergoing surgery for bilateral knee replacements this year. I do have some arthritis in my hands and feet as well. If I take anti-inflammatory pills, they will make me swell worse, so apparently I am allergic to them, which is too bad because they would help my arthritis pains.
This all amounts to varieties of aches and pains. I have pain medication, but am not too happy about the side effects. I remember coming across an article that talked about Nettle tea helping some types of pain, but it did not give any type of instructions on how to make it, such as how much to use, how to prepare it, etc. I plan to try dandelions ASAP, hoping that since they are natural, I will be able tolerate them, and they won't make the swelling from my arthritis worse.
Could you provide instruction on how much to use of the dandelions, and which parts - the leaves or the flowers, and also; how many nettle leaves I should include if I were to try to make a tea, or to grind them up in my coffee grinder do I need to roast them for awhile first, to dry them out completely? Please provide step by step, from the time I harvest them from my land until I'm drinking them.
Nettle is roughly 1 cup leaves to 2 cups water. You don't need to pack down the leaves either. You really don't have to measure. You can make the tea stronger by steeping it longer, even if you only have a few leaves. Be careful harvesting nettle. You do not want to touch it until it is cooked. You can also eat them once they've cooked long enough.
You can make tea with dandelion leaves or flowers or both the same way. I use mainly leaves, probably about a half cup to 2 cups water. No need to roast anything unless you want to make dandelion coffee. Then you roast the root. For pain relief, I also suggest you look into ginger, turmeric, and coconut oil. It could be, Tommy. Anything that improves heart function and circulation could help improve sex drive.
I have been taking dandelion tea for a while and I know it is good for me When you understand, respect and follow your knowledge and guidance about nature you cannot go wrong I grew up in the countryside in Spain I used to know which herbs and grass to eat I was little and I lost that knowledge with time but I used to pick them up from the hills and eat them raw I also used to eat the stems of roses They are really of great taste and very nourishing Thanks for this site Charlie which I just happened to see today when I searched for more information of the benefits of the dandelion so that I could send the link to a friend that needs help with the liver, kidneys and other ailments God bless you and your efforts in helping others Thank you so much, amparo!
I love eating fresh "weeds" like dandelion, purslane, clover, and more. The gallbladder concentrates and controls the release of bile during digestion. Once it is removed, you get a continuous flow of less concentrated bile. Dandelion stimulates a release of more bile from the liver, so it is a good thing to add to your meals, especially meals that contain more fat, so this digested properly. Dandelion also continues to have benefit for your kidneys and liver.
My doctors wants to prescibe Lasik to reduce fluid and lower my BP. I read all of the side effects and want to find an alternative.

I will have to intake more potassium and get my electrolytes checked in a few weeks. I vote no and want to try the dandilion tea or suppliment. Should I start out one cup a day, early in the day? Or one capsule early in the day? You will want to work closely with your doctor as you work on naturally reducing your blood pressure, Denise.
I would start out with one cup of tea each morning and find one of the free blood pressure machines in your area to check daily. They aren't as accurate, but they can still give you trends. Some pharmacies or grocery stores have them. You can add capsules if you don't see much of a trend down or drink a second cup in the evening. You will also want to walk briskly for 10 to 30 minutes a day. You can also try breathing exercises in the morning and night, meditation, or yoga.
Coenzyme Q10 can help. Potassium rich foods like sweet potatoes, tomatoes, and bananas may help too. Watch your sodium intake. Eat one square of dark chocolate a day. And avoid caffeine and stress. These are just some ideas, but your doctor will have more. Good luck to you! How can you use it topically.
For yeast on the skin, typically infections. I would love to start a regimen drinking tea. I'm looking for other alternatives. You could use cooled dandelion tea topically. Coconut oil and tea tree oil can also be used topically to help with many fungal infections. Okay I will try. This is my first week drinking the interesting taste I like.
Not sure what improvements to look out for but I'm excited. My Grandmother born ,fed us children dandelion greens salads approximately 14 times a week Hi, I have low blood pressure, is it ok to drink dandelion tea? Thank you for this wonderful info! Going to give dandelion a try. I'm wondering, do you use the stem at all?
Other than salad and teas, I'm probably going to juice them, and wondering if I should throw the whole plant in after giving it a good wash. The stem is a little bitter, Karen, but you can still use it. I tend to use just the leaves and flowers myself, but the entire plant is edible. May be for the past 30 years or so, I relish dandelion times in spring. Leaves are boiled and then fried with tomato and garlic, pepper and salt. Now I just watered my garden and will collect the last harvest tomorrow. But this time I will not boil it and will straight away fry it as usual.
I'm not sure if it can cure it all on its own, Francis. It should help with some of the symptoms, but you really should be working with a doctor too. Gonorrhea may be helped to some degree by many natural remedies, such as dandelion, but it rarely clears up with natural remedies alone. You should talk to a doctor. I had to get lithotripsy to explode my kidney stone and still had some pain from the procedure. When I drank dandelion root tea, almost all of the pain completely went away! I also didn't mind the taste. Hi, I live in New Zealand and we have three types of dandelion, the thin leafy, the thick leaf, and tall kinda prickly that has the white milky stuff type with small flowers etc, so i know the thin leafy type is ok to eat what about the other two?
As far as I know, Karen, all types of dandelion are edible, but there may be some differences in flavor and bitterness. I would stick to the common dandelion more with the thin leaf as I know these are delicious. There are also some false dandelions that won't provide the same benefits, but most of these are edible as well. I just started eating dandelion last spring. I cook it like spinach, with a bit of garlic, and then scramble an egg into it and eat it for breakfast or lunch. It gives me so much energy and makes me feel so alert and good.
I thought maybe the effect was just coincidence the first time, but noticed it again and again. I haven't tried the dandelion tea or coffee yet but will try it this year. My friend's grandma used to make pancakes with the flowers and I remember they were really good. Pls, where can I buy dandelium?.
Will it be in the vegetable section in grocery stores in Houston?. You can usually find dandelion in health food stores, but not regular grocery stores as of yet. Try farmers' markets too. In the south, two grocery stores Publix and Fresh Market sell organic dandelions. I know dandelion flowers make an excellent syrup, but I've never tried them in pancakes. I will have to experiment. I just went out and dug up some dandelion and made myself a salad.
I really have no health problem except for diabetes II, as if that's not enough. I plan on cooking the roots. I'm hoping it will somehow lower my glucose level. Sounds like a delicious salad, Phyllis! Let us know how the roots turn out. You may want to look at adding more cinnamon to your diet as well. Hi Charlie, Will it be healthy if I will alternate the dandelion tea with the nettle leaf tea? Hi my daughter is suffering with excema on her arms.
Would taking this as a capsule help? Shes 13 so wont drink the teas!! Or could you suggest something else? Im sick of buying cream after cream. You can definitely use it as a capsule, Grace! I'd also give coconut oil a try externally. I've seen many people have success with it. Good luck to you and your daughter. As long as you are sticking to the doses found in food, dandelion is considered safe daily, Alice, but you may want to talk to your doctor and let him or her know what you are trying. Hi I have just started to drink Dandelion tea.
I have just found out , my gall bladder is full of stones. They won't take my gall bladder out until u have another attic. You should always consult your health care professional, but I see no reason why not, Isaac. It is a food, like lettuce or spinach, and it has some good cleansing properties. You will want to drink it at least a couple hours before bed, Fiona. It is a natural cleanser, so you may feel the urge to use the bathroom shortly after you use it. In French, this herb is called pissenlit which translates to more or less "wet the bed".
It is great for detox, but probably not right around bed time. I'd fallen in love with the characters and so, decided I would write a series. I know I'm not your conventional romance writer. I don't always follow the rules. And I love action and suspense I wrote the perfect man, cuz I needed one at the time, though he does have a few flaws. Not long after I wrote this book, I met, and fell in love with another perfect man We live in the suburbs of Atlanta, though I'm trying to convince him to move west.
This book is longer than the others in the series. I had so much fun writing it that I just kept adding another facet to their relationship and personalities. I felt silly at first, when I gave my own book a five-star rating. Then I thought about politicians who certainly vote for themselves, don't they? And honestly, this book, for me, WAS thoroughly enjoyable. I'm grateful to be able to put my own little review here with it, so thank you Goodreads!
As a side note I wasn't going to mention this, but feel compelled to do so. At first, in the book, Shelley reacted much differently to her sexual assault. I don't know if it was the "law of attraction" thing or what, but when I was in the middle of writing this book, I myself was assaulted And my reaction was much different than what I'd first written. So I changed Shelley's reaction to mirror my own. Through my research, I soon discovered that this reaction is not uncommon. She goes searching for empowerment and crosses paths with martial arts master, Eric Kino. When Eric's old enemy seeks revenge Shelley, m pgs, After being sexually assaulted, Shelley Adams is having a difficult time.
When Eric's old enemy seeks revenge Shelley, must dig deep to find enough courage to triumph over the evils of hatred.

I began writing when my first marriage was coming to a stormy end. Like many women, I'd lost myself under the labels of wife and mother.
