Marshmallow Root is one of my favorite herbs, it is very soothing to the GI tract and also for the urinary tract. Marshmallow Root is anti-inflammatory in action and creates a soothing balm that heals the body. It also works well for inflamed skin, gastric reflux, gastritis, diarrhea, indigestion, peptic ulcers, Crohn’s disease, urinary inflammation, urethritis, and also coughing and asthma. And Marshmallow Root taken 30 minutes before meals with a large glass of water will make you feel full… and because of that you lose weight. Take 4 – 400 mg capsules AM and PM for 7 days then take a week off and come back to it if needed.
