Burdock root, known in Japan as gobo, is one of the best blood-purifiers. It has diuretic properties that help expel toxic products from the blood through urine. This root-vegetable is employed in the treatment of skin problems such as eczema (dermatitis) and psoriasis. Burdock is a remedy for liver and gall bladder complaints. Effusion of burdock seeds has been used for throat and chest ailments. Burdock is an appetite-stimulant and is used  for enhancing digestion and relieving dyspepsia. Dried burdock root is reconstituted by pouring boiling water over the bits and letting them stand until softened. It may also be used as a tea, or incorporated into brown rice, where it will soften as the rice and burdock mixture cooks. I use either fresh or dried burdock in stir-fried vegetables or kinpira-style braised vegetables.

The Health-Promoting Radish

Radishes, like broccoli, cabbage, kale and Brussels sprouts, contain cancer-inhibiting substances. Historically, radishes have been used as a tonic for the liver and gall bladder. They contain a sulphur-based chemical that increases the flow of bile, aiding digestion. Radishes and their greens also contain vitamin C, calcium and protein.
