Hellebore Caucasian – “miracle plant”. Its amazing power has fascinated healers since ancient times. The famous alchemist Paracelsus, as well as the creator of the “Canon of Medicine” Avicenna, were convinced that the Caucasian hellebore herb is in no way inferior to ginseng in its healing effect. Folk healers are well aware of the anti-inflammatory and antiparasitic effects of hellebore. Hellebore gives noticeable results in heart ailments. And the use of this plant in oncology speaks of its exceptional strength. Hellebore Caucasian is also used for complex cleansing of the body. For this reason, it is called the “weight loss herb”.
Lose weight – get younger
Excess weight goes away due to the action of those mechanisms that the Caucasian hellebore herb launches in the body:
- cleanses the intestines with a mild laxative effect, removes excess fluid and relieves swelling;
- prevents stagnation in the gallbladder and stone formation;
- normalizes digestion, breaks down fats;
- expels sand and stones from the kidneys and urinary tract;
- powerfully cleanses the body of radioactive elements and toxins;
- regulates blood pressure;
- enhances blood circulation and stimulates the cardiovascular system;
- lowers and normalizes cholesterol;
- treats various neoplasms and tumors;
- has a therapeutic effect on joints with osteochondrosis;
- restores the nervous system;
- restores the functioning of the thyroid gland;
- has a beneficial effect on the skin, cleanses it.
While taking Caucasian hellebore preparations, all these processes occur in the body simultaneously, with greater or lesser intensity. As a result of the normalization of metabolism, there is a gradual and mild weight loss in a period of 2-3 months to one year or longer. This prolongation in time is quite understandable, because cleaning is not a quick matter, given that slag deposits have been accumulating in the body since birth.
According to those who have already successfully walked this path and took Caucasian hellebore in order to lose weight, you can lose up to 20 kg in six months. And the most significant: the weight lost after the action of hellebore does not return. Improving overall well-being, rejuvenation, strengthening immunity and getting rid of many diseases are a pleasant addition to a slim figure. Another “bonus” is that when losing weight with the help of Caucasian hellebore, the skin does not sag, it does not form folds and even tightens.
Be careful on the turns!
Before exposing your body to drastic changes, you need to carefully read the recommendations for taking herbal preparations and be extremely careful about dosages, constantly monitoring your condition. The Caucasian hellebore belongs to poisonous plants and traditional medicine does not give official prescriptions for taking hellebore for weight loss. It is considered an exclusively folk recognized medicinal plant, including for the fight against obesity.
Caucasian hellebore should not be taken by pregnant and lactating women. Children under 14 years of age are not allowed to take it internally. It is not recommended to drink calcium preparations or laxatives at the same time as hellebore. In addition, one should not forget about individual intolerance, which will manifest itself already at the minimum dosage.
From an overdose, ringing in the ears, swelling of the throat, severe thirst may appear. Severe poisoning can lead to problems with cardiac activity and deterioration in the presence of chronic diseases. However, many poisonous plants are used in pharmaceuticals. It must be remembered that a single overdose will not cause irreparable harm to the body. The real danger lies precisely in the long-term improper use of the drug.
Signs of serious poisoning: disturbed heart rhythm, a sharp decrease in blood pressure, respiratory distress. In this case, you need to urgently drink a couple of glasses of salted water (half a teaspoon of salt per glass of water) or a pink solution of potassium permanganate and provoke vomiting, it is better to do this several times. You can take activated charcoal. Be sure to call an ambulance or go to the hospital.
Therefore, before you start taking Caucasian hellebore for weight loss, you need to consult with your doctor. This is especially true for owners of a bouquet of chronic diseases.
To get rid of various diseases, all parts of hellebore grass are used. For weight loss, ground rhizome is taken. To prepare the drug, you need to pour dry, finely chopped roots (in the amount of 10 grams) with hot water. Then you need to wrap the tincture and set aside. After two hours, the solution is filtered. In the morning and evening, one teaspoon of tincture is taken half an hour before meals.
Hellebore is also available in pharmacy forms. It is an oil and ointment that is used for external use. Powder of crushed rhizomes is also produced. Oil can be taken for weight loss. The dose of oil for an adult is 20 drops.
However, the most popular and convenient for use is still the Caucasian hellebore powdered rhizome, which is sold in bags. It comes with a special measuring spoon. You need to drink the drug according to the scheme, while the dose is gradually increased. A full course from obesity lasts one year, or rather, 13 months, since after six months it is necessary to take a break for 1 month. For prevention, hellebore is taken in small courses: a month – in the spring, a month – in the fall.
More doesn’t mean better
The minimum recommended dose of hellebore root is 50 micrograms, which is one fourth of the scoop provided by the powder manufacturer. But, given the “strong power” of the Caucasian hellebore and the uniqueness of each organism, it is better to exclude the risk of poisoning and its consequences, which may turn out to be unpredictable and irreparable. To do this, it would be reasonable to reduce the minimum dose by half. This will be the first appointment and at the same time a drug intolerance test, and then you can continue according to the schedule. Every 10 days, the dose should be increased by 50 mg and so on until reaching 300 mg. If you feel worse, you can reduce the portion until the condition returns to normal, and after some time again begin to gradually increase it.
You can choose the most comfortable treatment for yourself:
- Pour the powder with cold boiled water. Water take 50 grams. Drink with sediment. This is done in the morning on an empty stomach. You can eat an hour after taking the drug.
- Dry way: in the morning before breakfast (approximately 1.5-2 hours) eat a measured amount of dry hellebore root. Drink warm water.
- Evening reception: the required portion …
