Do Herbs Work?
A New Sensation
Read the following article on Dandelion
About four hours later she said to me: "Dylan, I think you have introduced me to a new sensation!" I laughed, knowing very well what she was on about, having experienced comfrey leaves strapped on my back after a cycling accident in my early teens. I inspected her knee to find that it had become red and swollen to the size of a football. The inflammation revealed that the healing process had been initiated. I suggested that she subsequently need only to apply the leaves nightly as she went to bed and to take the leaves off as soon as the itching aroused her from sleep. Her knee progressed well over the next few days; a marked reduction in pain and swelling with increased strength and mobility of the joint. I cycled off every other day to maintain a supply of the fresh leaves for her - by this time I had fortunately spotted a closer clump of comfrey growing only about one and a half miles away.
About a week later I went to her caravan to see how she was. Her crutches were leaning against it beside the door but she was not inside. I asked to find out where she might be. I was somewhat aghast to be told that she had decided to go for a bike ride so she could get some more comfrey leaves. Shortly afterwards she returned, brake pads screeching on the wheel rims, ecstatic that she had just pedalled the three miles without any difficulty whatsoever.
I was both delighted for her and stunned at the speed of her recovery. I had no idea that herbs could heal the body so quickly. From that moment onwards I have never doubted the healing power of herbs.
A month after first applying the comfrey leaves, the girl had returned to California. She wrote to me expressing her gratitude for the help I had given her in Denmark. She described how she had walked into her orthopaedic surgeon's clinic and slammed the crutches down on his desk saying "I don't need these any more."
After examining her knee he was equally aghast. He responded, "Never in forty years experience have I seen such a serious injury heal so quickly." After being told about the comfrey leaves, he did not say a word.
Since the knees are ruled by Capricorn the choice of the Saturnine comfrey to sympathetically heal this knee injury was especially appropriate for the girl. Having my Sun in Capricorn, I have often mused on how this experience also confirmed my vocation as a herbalist.
