Yellow Root(Xanthorhiza simplicissima)
Has anyone had any experience with this besides me? btw my experience has been very good. Not to confuse with yellow dock, golden seal, or maybe golden thread(?).
This plant grows along creek banks. I haven't found any growing over 10 yards from the actual moving water. It seems to grow in patches from what I've saw. Okay, now for the good stuff. From my "readings" it is said to cure even stomach cancer in a lot of cases. It contains the chemical berberine which is a powerful antibiotic. It'll knock dead a mouth ulcer and stomach ulcers caused by the H polori bacteria. Could cancer be as simple as a flesh eating virus?
My experience is that it will certainly cure mouth ulcers within 12 hours, however sometimes it's said to take 1-3 days. My neighbor was having problems with a fever blister. She ground up some yellow root, mixed it with chap stick, applied it that morning and by afternoon the fever blister had quit fevering and was in retraction. I just bought some land from a friend of mine. We enjoy each other's company because of the "old ways" we talk about. I was raised by my grandparents and he was around his quite a lot. He said, I'd like to find me some yellow root. He went on to tell about how his granny would boil it and let them gargle with it to get rid of a canker. Anyway, good stuff.
