I consider this herb to be used for gastrointestinal problems especially irritable bowel disease or inflammatory bowel disease. I usually combine it with meadowsweet, raspberry and slipper elm.
It has been used since the time of the Pharaohs and fed the gods for centuries. It has used extensively in the kitchen It is the root that is used and only a little.
