Master Gardeners are back for the 2017 Gardening Year!

I am back playing in the dirt again and to start this gardening year I was able to help out with the Master Gardeners Plant Sale.

Herbs and Constipation

Constipation is the difficulty in passing stools or the infrequent passage of hard, dry stools as a result of food moving slowly through the large intestine (Balch 2006). There are three different herbs that are used for constipation and they are Rhubarb Root - Rheum palmatum (Chinese Rhubarb), Senna - Senna alexandria and Flax - Linum usitatissimum. Rheum palmatum has a purgative action that makes it very effective in the treatment of constipation (Hoffman 2003). This purgative effect is followed by an astringent effect and it means that the herb has a truly cleansing action upon the gut, as it first removes debris and then astringes the system with antiseptic properties (Hoffman 2003).
