Dandelion – Benefits and Side Effects
Dandelion was first mentioned for its medicinal qualities in the works of Arabian physicians of the tenth and eleventh centuries. These writers speak of it as a form of wild endive, under the name of Taraxacon.
The Iroquois, Ojibwe and Rappahannock Native American tribes of North America prepared infusions and decoctions of the root and herb to treat kidney disease, dyspepsia, and heartburn.
In traditional Arabian medicine, dandelion has been used to treat liver and spleen disorders.
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), dandelion is combined with other herbs to treat hepatitis, to enhance an immune response to upper respiratory infections, bronchitis or pneumonia, and as a topical compress for mastitis (breast inflammation).
