Goldenseal

Historical note Goldenseal is indigenous to North America and was traditionally used by the Cherokees and then by early American pioneers. Preparations of the root and rhizome were used for gastritis, diarrhoea, vaginitis, dropsy, menstrual abnormalities, eye and mouth inflammation, and general ulceration. In addition to this, the plant was used for dyeing fabric and weapons. Practitioners of the eclectic school created a high demand for goldenseal around 1 847. This ensured the herb's ongoing popularity in Western herbal medicine, but unfortunately led to it being named a threatened species in 1 997. Today, most high-quality goldenseal is from cultivated sources.
