'Everyone Has a Healing Food; Burdock Root Is Mine'
WE SHARE THIS STORY FROM CUSTOMER LAUREN IN VERMONT TO NOT ONLY CELEBRATE BURDOCK ROOT'S DETOXIFYING POWER, BUT ALSO TO INSPIRE OTHERS TO TURN TO FOOD FOR HEALING.
I have struggled with skin problems for a very long time. I took Accutane, and when that didn’t really work, I realized that I wanted to get to the root of the problem. I found out I had a hormone imbalance and simultaneously was studying the food system. As I got really interested in my health and the health of our food system, I saw how connected the two were and paid very close attention to how the foods I ate made me feel and where they came from.

Fast forward about four years, and now I am taking prerequisites to apply to
Five Branches University in Santa Cruz to study acupuncture and Chinese medicine. I’ve learned so much about food and health and have made a lot of changes. I still was frustrated with my breakouts, although they were much better. A dear friend recommended to me your Burdock Root Powder. She thought “it might be a good one for me.” I researched the company and the root a bit and put in an order.
I have never seen such a consistent difference in my skin. I truly thank burdock root and Dr. Cowan’s high-quality preservation of it. I can’t believeeeee no one has recommended it me before. Burdock root is one of the blood’s most powerful detoxifiers! Of course, it would help my skin! It has also really helped with digestion and overall well-being. I believe there is a healing food for everyone; burdock root is definitely mine, and I honestly won’t get it from anyone else.

We asked Lauren to share her favorite way to use Burdock Root Powder, and here's her response:
"Hmm. I would love to say I have a favorite way to use it, but I really just mix it in everything! I love to cook and make a lot of curry-type dishes and rice bowls, but I also have it with eggs or, most recently this morning, I mixed it with my almond butter on toast with banana and cinnamon."

All traditional people ate fruit when it was available. Fruits are wonderful sources of water-soluble vitamins like C and fibers, as well as our familiar disease-fighting phytochemicals. But, fruits also can be a source of excessive fructose, a sugar implicated in the etiology of many modern diseases.
The different colors reflect the different chemicals that plants synthesize to ward off disease. Eating a wide variety of these phytochemicals is one of my core dietary principles.
Chalcone-rich Ashitaba Powder can be used as a kind of nutrient-rich green vegetable in smoothies, salads, or in any other recipe that calls for greens. A quarter- or half-teaspoon at a time is usually sufficient. Also, because it’s a dietary source of ketones, Ashitaba Powder can be used to enhance the effect of a ketogenic diet or to provide extra nutrients during intermittent fasting.
