RED ROOT EXTRACT
Product DescriptionPROPERTIES AND USES: Gum disease, plaque, skin cancer, high blood pressure, yellow skin.
COMMON NAMES: Blood Root, Red Paccoon, Indain Paint, Pauson, Red Paint Root, Indian Red Paint.
PARTS USED: Root.
BODILY INFLUENCES: A cheerful, low growing, early spring, wild flower with delicate white petals and a golden center. The root sap, which is a brilliant red was used by the American Indians as a cosmetic. It was employed as lip rouge and for facial marks of distinction. They also applied it, directly, to cure skin cancer and eczema. More modern use shows Red Root to clear up yellow skin, as in hepatitis caused by a liver infection or congested gallbladder. Even more recent tests have shown the use of Red Root extract to be one of the major dental discoveries in history. Reports indicate that 60% of the people who lose their teeth do so not because of gum and bone deterioration. These problems are caused by germs living on the roots of the teeth, destroying gum tissue and the jaw bone in which the teeth rest, as well as the roots of the teeth. These horrible germ colonies are called plaque. Now for the good news – studies indicate, after two weeks of applying Red Root to the gums after each brusing, plaque is reduced by 50%. In another two weeks, half of the remaining plaque is gone, and so on. A novel use of Red Root, for this purpose, can be achieved by adding 40 drops of Red Root extract to the water-pick container before cleaning the teeth. Be sure to run a full container of plain water through the water-pick after use to prevent clogging. For very troubled areas, put several drops of Red Root and Formula Ol’Number 11 (bone-flesh-nerve and cartilage restorer) on a piece of cotton, place it between the gum and cheek. Let it rest there all night and, if necessary, repeat this procedure for daytime use. In larger amounts (30 to 40 drops, three times per day) Red Root can lower dangerously high blood pressure. No affect is noted on blood pressure if it is not high. Red Root is an arterial sedative if it finds the arteries of the body in a cramped condition. To use Red Root as a mouthwash, remove one ounce of mouthwash from a pint bottle, add one ounce of Red Root to the remainder and then use as regular mouthwash.
DOSAGE: 40 drops, three times per day internally. Externally, as needed to cover the skin area, three to four times per day. For the gums apply, as needed, to cover the area each time the teeth are brushed (two or three times per day).
