Willow - Cascara
Cascara Sagrada, also known as Sacred Bark, dates back to the seventeenth century. It is one of the best remedies for constipation, as it is not habit-forming and in fact cleanses and restores natural tone to the colon, as opposed to making the colon lazy. It does this by promoting peristaltic action in the intestinal canal (without cramping). It is helpful for the treatment of haemorrhoids by being non-irritating and forming a soft stool allowing painless passage. In fact it is particularly helpful in cases where there is chronic hardening of the stool.
Often, after prolonged use of Cascara as a tonic, the bowels will operate naturally. Cascara also improves the flow of secretions of the stomach, liver and pancreas, improving digestion. It is also effective on the gall bladder ducts and helps the body rid itself of gallstones, whilst increasing the flow of bile (which is also needed to lubricate the colon). It is also effective in ridding the colon of parasites and worms. It does not interfere with the natural bowel flora, often a problem with chemical laxatives. It can be used on its own, or in combination with other herbs and/or fibres (such as psyllium) which bulk the stool and sweep the sides of the colon, absorbs toxins, keeping it clean and free of pockets. Cascara is therefore safe to use long term, even with children, the elderly, people with liver disorders and diverticulitis.
