"All parts of the dandelion are edible, including the leaves, roots and flowers, and some parts are considered medicinal. Certain of dandelion's purported health benefits pertain especially to the kidneys and urinary tract. Consult your doctor for guidance in the safe and appropriate use of dandelion.


Dandelion leaves have a slightly bitter flavor that goes well in salads and they are increasingly available in produce and grocery stores. (and therefore is a natural food like any other) Vitamins A, B-complex, C and D are found in the leaves. Dandelion also provides the minerals iron, potassium and zinc. Dandelion has diuretic effects -- it promotes increased urine production -- and also replaces potassium that may be lost in the urine. Native Americans used dandelion extract to treat a variety of conditions, including kidney disease, skin disorders and digestive problems, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.


Dandelion roots have antiviral effects and, combined with the herb uvaursi, which has antibacterial properties, may also help decrease frequency of urinary tract infections in women. A study published in the June 2011 issue of the "Journal of Ethnopharmacology" found that Vietnamese dandelion decreased urinary tract infection by increasing urine production and flow, and also by preventing bacteria from attaching to cells that line the bladder wall. Preventing bladder infections also prevents kidney infections, which usually occur when bacteria ascend from the bladder. Researchers concluded that dandelion may be a useful, safe alternative to conventional antibiotics, many of which are becoming ineffective due to emerging strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria."

I just got an email from the wife of my very good friend, whom I do worry about and I know she worries about him. I 'm sorry if this offends you when you eventually read it, but pharmaceutical companies and doctors are most often against herbal and natural remedies to help your own body cleanse itself.  I'm happy that you sent me an email rather than confront me about it because I'm having a wonderful time with my beautiful son now.

I know dandelions are totally natural, as all plants that can help your body heal and give ways for it to cleanse itself.

Avoiding eating out and avoiding the carbs and especially the sugars will help so much!
It does not hurt to visit a naturopath who is a natural doctor.

I love seeing and talking to your husband, and I have a feeling that you will get upset with me writing this . If so. You are welcome to write me another email but please don't yell at me about it if I come over to sit with your husband.
Ps, I love your shirts and clothes that you give me, as my funds for subbing are very low and every little bit hurts. Because of you, I dress well when I go to work (I think!)
