Plant description

The hellebore is a fairly small genus of the buttercup family, which has about 10–20 species. This low perennial plant (its height rarely exceeds 50 cm) has a beautiful shape of a bush and dense leaves of dark green color. The hellebore flower has a diameter of 4 - 6 cm.

The plant got its name due to the fact that it is not afraid of frosts and snow (thus, the time of flowering of the hellebore coincides with the light spring frosts).

Collection and storage

For the purpose of treatment, the underground part of the hellebore is used, namely the roots and rhizomes, the harvesting of which begins in early autumn (immediately after shedding the seeds).

The excavated roots of hellebore are cleaned from damaged or rotted raw materials, while the above-ground part of the plant is to be removed (leaves and flowers are cut off with a knife). The roots are thoroughly washed in cold water, after which the culling is carried out again, during which thick and large roots are cut into strips 0.5 cm thick, which ensures uniform drying of the raw material.

The roots are dried under a canopy (it is important that the place where the raw materials are dried is well ventilated). In addition, it is possible to dry the raw materials in special ovens or dryers, the temperature in which should not exceed 40 degrees (otherwise the glycosides contained in the raw materials will be destroyed).

Freezer in fiber

Particularly noteworthy biologically active additive, the components of which are the hellebore and fiber. Freezer in fiber helps to maintain the balance of all metabolic processes occurring in the body. The wide range of application of this additive, and its effectiveness, are due to the presence of components that act not on a specific disease, but directly on homeostasis.

The properties of hellebore have been described above, therefore we will dwell in more detail on this component of the additive, such as fiber.

It is the fiber that enters the body with natural plant foods that are dietary fibers, which play an important role in the process of maintaining the normal functioning of the entire digestive tract. The fact is that dietary fibers are not digested, and therefore contribute to maintaining the tone and, consequently, the motility of the digestive tract. In addition, these fibers adsorb toxins, thereby preventing their absorption.

Action supplements:
1. Normalization of metabolism, which leads to loss of excess weight.
2. Normalization of the intestines (above all, it is about eliminating constipation).
3. Obstruction of bile stasis, which, firstly, prevents the formation of stones directly in the gallbladder, and secondly, helps to remove various small stones from both the kidneys and urinary tract.
4. Optimizing the work of the heart by increasing blood flow to the heart muscle.
5. Normalization of the nervous system, which has a positive effect on sleep, performance and psycho-emotional state of a person.
6. Stimulation of the immune system (so, the hellebore in fiber increases nonspecific resistance to various infectious diseases).
7. Removal of harmful substances, including toxins, radionuclides, etc.

Reception scheme:
1. 1 - 10 day - 0.5 tsp.
2. 10 - 20 days - 1 tsp. without top.
3. 20-30 days - 1 tsp. with riding.
4. 30 - 40 days - 1 tsp. with top and another 0.5 tsp
5. 40 - 50 days - 1 tsp. with the top and another 1 tsp without top.
6. 50 - 60 days - 1 tbsp. without top.
7. 60 day - up to 6 months - 1 tbsp. without top.

After six months of taking the hellebore with fiber, you must take a break for one month, after which the regimen is repeated. The general course of treatment is one year.

Application features:

  • The plant is poisonous, so a necessary condition for the use of hellebore in fiber is strict adherence to the dosage and regimen.
  • While taking this dietary supplement it is recommended to include in the diet foods containing a large amount of potassium and calcium.
  • During the course of fiber intake should drink at least 1.5 - 2 liters of fluid per day.

For a one-year course of treatment, 12 cans of hellebore in fiber are required, 300 g each.

Hellebore poisoning

The hellebore is a poisonous plant, overdose of which can lead to poisoning. This poisoning can be triggered by a single dose of a large dose or prolonged use of small doses.

Symptoms of hellebore poisoning:

  • nausea,
  • vomiting
  • abdominal pain,
  • burning mouth
  • excessive drooling,
  • diarrhea,
  • general weakness
  • numbness of tongue and limbs
  • impaired vision and hearing
  • itchy skin
  • tachycardia,
  • insomnia,
  • loss of appetite,
  • respiratory failure,
  • dilated pupils,
  • excited state
  • convulsions
  • loss of consciousness,
  • rave.

The listed signs of hellebore poisoning can be observed both together and separately in various combinations (depending on the characteristics of the organism, the dose taken and the duration of the action of hellebore preparations).

First aid for poisoning drugs hellebore:
1. Call an ambulance.
2. Gastric lavage, for which the victim must drink three glasses of boiled water (a weak solution of potassium permanganate can be used), after which it is necessary to induce vomiting.
3. Intake of 20 tablets of activated carbon, which will help to absorb the hellebore remaining in the gastrointestinal tract.

Compliance with the dosage and rules for taking helleborez drugs will help prevent poisoning!

The hellebore and alcohol

Reception of hellebore does not imply a categorical rejection of the use of alcohol. But it is desirable not to combine the treatment with the use of hellebore and alcohol. The fact is that alcoholic beverages (like cigarettes and coffee) are a burden for the heart, and the glycosides that make up the plant can multiply it.

Finally, remember that a hellebore is an excellent cleanser that removes toxins from the body, and alcohol, as is well known, contains these harmful compounds in excess. Therefore, if the purpose of taking freezer preparations is to cleanse the body, then you should abandon fatty foods, as well as alcohol, smoking and excessive consumption of coffee.

Infusion with otitis

1 tsp The powder of hellebore is poured with a liter of boiled water. Infusion is dripped in each ear for 2 - 3 drops, twice a day. Also, this infusion can be washed purulent and poorly healing wounds, and you can rub it into the scalp to eliminate seborrhea and enhance hair growth.

The tool is also taken orally, 1 tbsp. twice a day, to cleanse the intestines. The course of treatment is at least six months (mostly shows a one-year course of taking helleboreum medications).

Infusion for chronic heart failure

0.5 tsp dry raw materials, pour 250 ml of water, and simmer in a water bath for about 20 minutes (you can brew a hellebore in a thermos). The infusion taken from a water bath is infused for three hours, carefully filtered and drunk a tablespoon six times a day.

If the infusion is taken externally, then filter it is not necessary. It is enough to shake the product so that the dry residue can get on the treated affected surface.
