Burdock • A Miraculous Herb

Articum Lappa



If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard of and used burdock many times but never realized it’s tremendous benefits for breast health. Whenever breast imbalances present themselves, addressing liver congestion will be an important step in regaining homeostasis. Whether your dealing with breast pain and tenderness or tumors, you want to ensure that your liver is metabolizing and excreting estrogen on a daily basis. Burdock is a wonderful herb to use on a daily basis to keep your liver toned and it a wonderful preventative medicine.

Susun Weed talks about how’s she seen the regular use of the infusion or tincture eliminate precancerous cells and in situ cancers of the breast and cervix (1).
