TP Knotweed

Yes awareness matters in this things. Some of are dangerous and some of are medicinal. This things we have to keep into our mind.


I was aware that young knotweed shoots can be used in pies as an ersatz rhubarb, but if an 8-12 month course of knotweed supplements helps with Lyme, then we've got plenty of the whole herb growing around here that I'd love to see go into capsules and out to herbalists and homeopaths where it can do some good for a change.


So knotweed may be good for something, eh? Too bad the amount needed is probably so small that it wouldn't make a dent in the profusion of wild plant growing on the banks of the creeks here in north-central PA where it has successfully eradicated much prettier and more wildlife friendly species.
