Description

One of my favorite herbalists (may he rest in peace) was Michael Moore. He said, “Red Root is one of our great unsung plant medicines.” Red root has a long reputation as a medicinal herb and was frequently used by Native Americans for a number of health concerns, such as shortness of breath, colds, and digestive issues. Many of the Ceanothus americanus uses and benefits were discovered by our Native Americans. For instance, the Chippewa used red root for shortness of breath, bloating, and constipation. The Cherokee used the root as a digestive tonic. And the Iroquois used it to treat diarrhea and colds, and to improve blood flow.

The herb’s antispasmodic and mucus-clearing properties allow it to ease the symptoms of asthma, whooping cough, chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, tonsillitis, colds, sore throats, and coughing in general. Red root is able to reduce inflammation and the severity of coughs. Red Root can assist in thinning mucus in the bronchial tubes and lungs while loosening and expelling phlegm from the lungs.

This herb can also be used to build up a healthy digestive system and handle digestive complaints. The antispasmodic properties of red root allow the muscles of the digestive tract to function at their best. It is often effective for abdominal pain, gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, and irritable bowel syndrome.

The astringent and antibacterial properties of red root make it an effective mouthwash and to fight bad breath. Red Root is able to support the health of the gums and supports balance in the mouth where gingivitis, as well as bleeding gums, canker sores, tooth decay, and tooth loss occur. It can also prevent the buildup of dental plaque—a major risk factor for gum disease.

Red root is considered by many western herbalists to be an excellent detoxification herb. Detoxification is important since most daily diets and lifestyles introduce a high amount of chemicals and pollutants into the body that wreak havoc on your internal organs, especially the liver and kidneys. By assisting in lymph drainage that, when backed up, can lead to skin infections, tonsillitis, sinusitis, headaches, sleep problems, obesity, fatigue, and muscle soreness.

The nervine, sedative, and relaxant properties in the root allow it to ease painful headaches. For those who suffer from recurrent headaches, using it daily can help reduce their severity.

Like many other herbs, it is also not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Moreover, you will want to consult your doctor before taking any herbal remedy, especially if you take prescription medication.
