Joe Pye

This is for educational purposes and should not be taken as medical advice. If in doubt don’t, make sure you know a plant before you use it. The poison is in the dose. Many plants we eat contain things that could be poisonous if eaten in large amounts but are beneficial when consumed in moderation.

The one I am referring to is Eutrochium Maculatum. They all pretty much have the same phytochemicals. Joe Pye also known as gravel root has a wide variety of health benefits. It fights many pathogens including fungal infection. When I first made a tea of it and was still beginning treatment for my Lyme I herxed bad. It is very potent as an antibiotic. It reduces inflammation and fights cancer. Some species of gravel root contain alkaloids that can damage the liver if taken for too long or in to high amounts.
