Bloodroot General Information
Native of North America and Canada, Bloodroot is a small perennial plant about 6 inches high. This plant is found in shaded, rich soils. The rootstock is finger thick and contains a red juice when fresh. This plant has bright red roots, when cut open the roots ooze a crimson blood like juice. Hence the name Bloodroot, other names for this plant is, Coon root, Indian plant, and Sweet slumber, Paucon, Redroot and Tetterwort. This plant has one flower, which is white with 8-12 petals. For centuries Native Americans used Bloodroot both as a reddish-orange dye that was used for body paint for war dances and ceremonies as well to color fabric and as a medicine. Some tribes drank Bloodroot tea to treat fevers, sore throats, and joint pain, and other tribes used the somewhat stinging sap on skin cancers. I was also used to induce vomiting and as an oral antiseptic. European herbalists prescribed this herb as a treatment for respiratory infections, asthma, joint pain, warts, ringworm, and nasal polyps. From the mid 1800s to the turn of the century, herbalists believed this herb could pull tumors out of the body so they formulated pastes of Bloodroot, flour, water, and zinc chloride and applied it directly to tumors and other cancers. From 1820 to 1926 this herb was listed as an expectorant in the US Pharmacopoeia. Bloodroot also contains protopine, a substance found in opium. In the 1800ís extracts were sometimes used as a narcotic pain reliever.

Bloodroot Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Bloodroot is believed to be an escharotic, which means it can produce scabs. Today Bloodroot salves and pastes are recommended for warts; however, there is no scientific evidence to support its effectiveness. In 2004 there was a study done that stated Sanguinarine derived from the root of Bloodroot has been found to exhibit anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and now anticancer properties. The FDA has approved Bloodroot for use in commercially available toothpastes and oral rinses to inhibit the development of dental plaque and gingivitis. Bloodroot contains a mixture of anti-microbial compounds that fight plaque forming bacteria. Bloodroot can also be found in cough syrups. Some herbalists recommend drinking Bloodroot tea for respiratory problems.

This herb is a medicine that is being used to treat skin tags. Skin tags, known in the medical literature as Acrochordons, are soft rubbery skin-colored growths that typically grow into a droplet shape and hang from the skin by a stalk. They do not become malignant. They do not cause pain or inflammation, except for getting caught in zippers or irritated by rough clothing. Bloodroot is far more inexpensive than going to your Dermatologist or family doctor, for they will snip them or freeze them off and this is unpleasant and sometimes painful. When using Bloodroot where you need to be careful is in the application. Follow the label instructions and do not apply to your eyelids, lips, nose, or genitals. Bloodroot can damage healthy tissue, so make sure you are apply the herb just to the areas you want to treat.

Bloodroot Dosage Information
To treat respiratory problems, drink one cup of Bloodroot tea 2 or 3 times daily until the problem subsides. To treat warts, make a paste and apply directly to the wart. Excessive application can cause burns on the skin so it is best to start with a small amount to test your skinís sensitivity. Once your level of tolerance is determined apply the paste for a day or two, then remove it and let a scab form and fall off. Repeat this process until the wart is gone.
