Not sure if you know this OP, but you can also use the roots for Lyme disease relief.

Wait…whaaaaaat?!?! Lyme disease relief …really???


wut_the_phuck t1_je3536f wrote

Yeah, try looking it up. When you do try some different search terms, such as ‘holistic’ & ‘Ayurveda’ and you will get some good resources out there for whatever ails you.

Can you tell me more about the Lyme disease management? How does that work?


wut_the_phuck t1_je0to5r wrote

There are quite a few sites talking about this but I think this is a good one describing how beneficial knotweed can be. If you’d like more help please do not hesitate to ask.

Japanese Knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum) has a wide range of actions.

It is a long list, but worth citing here: antibacterial, antiviral, antischistosomal, antispirochetal, antifungal, immunostimulant, immunomodulant, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiatherosclerotic, antihyperlipidemic, antimutagenic, anticarcinogenic, antineoplastic, vasodilator, inhibits platelet aggregation, inhibits eicosanoid synthesis, antithrombotic, tyrosine kinase inhibitor, oncogene inhibitor, antipyretic, cardioprotective, analgesic, antiulcer (slightly reduces stomach acid and protects against stress ulcers), hemostatic, and astringent.

That's not really something I'm interested in turning into a business, and despite all my time outside I've never got a tick.

I've had them on me, but I think a steady diet of garlic and onions stunned em

Haha just thought I would throw that out there. I too have a steady diet of onions and garlic though. I put them both in everything I make.

I have a couple patches I know haven't been sprayed that I gather shoots for salads and pickles
