The spirit of comfrey speaks to me daily as I walk by my personal plant. It says, “Sherrice. Grow wild as I grow wild. Grow strong as I grow strong. Saturate yourself with physical and spiritual nutrients, then grow, grow, grow.” I love to hear it in the ethers and I smile when it speaks. This herb will grow in the most harsh conditions and it’s strength begets powerful healing. This green earth plant has mastered the art of growth.
Used externally, comfrey is great for healing skin ailments and bone fractures. I’ve also found it to work wonders on sprains, bruises, and burns. In fact, it has been known to reduce injury related swelling.
I had the pleasure of ingesting this herb internally as part of a formula I created when I eradicated those pesky fibroids in my uterus. It stops internal bleeding and heals up those places we can’t reach. There’s amazing power in that chlorophyll filled gem. Check out my post about Uterine Fibroids to learn more.
So, let’s talk about controversial matters. The wild woman in me likes to defy all odds and dig deeper into forbidden things. I’ve heard the advice against the use of comfrey and I believe my favorite herb in the whole wide world has been the victim of bad research and bad press. I’ve used this herb internally for years and thus far haven’t experienced liver issues, as the studies claim. In fact, I’ve experienced amazing results. Of course, I only use it when I need it. I enjoy an occasional comfrey leaf infusion and get excited about the thickness of the extracts I make. DISCLAIMER – I AM NOT RECOMMENDING YOU TAKE THIS HERB INTERNALLY. That’s just what I do and it happens to work for me.
