Comfrey is an herb known since antiquity. In ancient times in England the plant was called “knitbone” which means “binds bones” because of its traditional use for the treatment of fractures. You can use comfrey as a tea or externally  as a poultice, compress or ointment.

–  Arthritis and Osteoarthritis: Comfrey relieves pain and inflammation caused by injuries and degeneration, especially the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

–  Digestive Aid: Comfrey tea is recommended as a remedy for gastrointestinal problems, such as heartburn and indigestion, as early as the first century. Comfrey tea may sooth your digestive tract, preventing abdominal discomfort and heartburn.It is also suitable in diarrhea, in dysentery, in spastic colitis.

–  Wound Healing: It can be helpful in healing burns, bed sores and rashes. Comfrey may help speed the healing of minor skin wounds because comfrey roots and leaves contain a chemical compound called allantoin that may stimulate the growth of new skin cells.

–  Bruising and Bleeding : Comfrey can reduce the appearance and speed the healing of bruises. It may also help reduce bleeding from skin wounds, and may help stop nosebleeds. Comfrey leaves and roots contain tannins, which have an astringent effect on blood vessels. These tannins are the components of comfrey responsible for bleeding control. It is suitable in bleeding of the stomach, nose, intestine, uterus, but also in hemoptysis.

To make an infusion, place 1-2 teaspoons of dried herb in a tea infuser or teapot or mug for each cup of tea you intend to brew. Cover with boiling water. Place on the lid (or cover your cup with a saucer). Allow the mixture to steep for 10 'to 15' minutes or overnight. Then strain the tea and serve. Drink 1-2 cups of tea a day. Add if you want honey, milk or lemon wedge for flavour. You should only take comfrey for four weeks at a time. Be sure to take a one-week break before resuming use.
Although rare, allergic reactions to comfrey may occur. Stop using comfrey and seek emergency medical attention if you experience symptoms of a serious allergic reaction including difficulty breathing; closing of your throat; swelling of your lips, tongue, or face; or hives. Comfrey has been associated with cases of severe liver damage. Notify your doctor immediately if you develop nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, unusual fatigue, loss of appetite, yellow skin or eyes, itching, dark urine, or clay colored stools. These symptoms may be early signs of liver damage. In any case you should consult with your healthcare doctor before using comfrey especially if you’re taking other medications or having health problems.
