In this video, we’re going to talk about a common weed that may help reverse liver damage. This weed may help assist with inflammation of the liver and may even help reverse cirrhosis.

Weeds are actually herbs! This herb was used in Egypt, China, and Rome and has been used for thousands of years. The English folk name for this herb is “piss-a-bed” because it acts as a potent diuretic.

This wild herb has the following incredible potential health benefits:
• Decreases the accumulation of fat on the liver
• Suppresses lipid accumulation
• Decreases glucose levels
• Decreases insulin
• Improves insulin resistance
• Improves HOMA-IR test results
• Increases flow of bile from the liver
• Improves digestion and fat-soluble vitamin absorption

The herb we’re talking about is dandelion! You can eat dandelion greens and flowers to get these amazing health benefits. You can try a dandelion salad or incorporate a few dandelions into your greens mix. Dandelion greens can also be roasted or sautéed.

    I knew you were going to say Dandelion ❤ 🎉

  • @UniversalPatriots says:

    Milk thistle is what i use for liver heath .

  • @WilliamFluery says:

    Just make sure no one has been spraying the yard with Round-Up before picking 🤣

  • @C.N.1 says:

    We used to fight over the dandelions in our Easter baskets! 😂 Nowadays, our fat children go crazy over the jelly beans and leave the eggs to rot! It’s pretty sad. Thanks, Dr. Berg! Have a great week, everyone! 🙂

    • @johndorney4888 says:

      Ive been eating dandelion flowers over the last few weeks here in southeast Texas, also the greens. Roots on the way

  • @omad5156 says:

    My science teacher gave us recipes for dandelions. We got more info about wilderness survival I think than science 😂

  • @petermunch6820 says:

    Happy Birthday Dr. Berg.

  • @iss8504 says:

    As a beekeeper, I wish that people would stop trying to poison dandelions. Bees love dandelions and the nectar from dandelions produces a light yellow, very delicate flavored honey. Dandelions are an important early nectar source. Even if you don’t eat honey, the bees need nutrition before they can pollinate the fruits and vegetables that come later in the year.

    • @jeandixon586 says:

      Yes! Stop poisoning anything at all!

    • @TerraGarten-cl8iz says:

      Can you list other great flowers and plants for Bees. Would love a beekeepers’ perspective. I have left the dandelions alone. I’ve got salvia growing and a hops vine

    • @P.e.m.a. says:

      Manufactured outrage over a highly medicinal plant. Cant imagine why.. lol. They are such cute flowers too.

    • @Trazynn says:

      Bok Choy is also a (very ) early flowering plant. Would recommend planting the stems of the stuff you buy in a grocery store around the bee hives.

      Some people just live to be toxic its deep in the subconscious

  • @ColRubyDimplesManacha says:

    It’s a blood purifier as well 🌼

  • @cindyhamblin5673 says:

    Bitter herbs… God made them a blessing for us, only mankind calls them weeds. 🙏

  • @jameshyde1501 says:

    Doc. You have surpassed all my expectations of any decent human beings. You have become an Angel of mercy! THANK YOU!!

  • @LoneWolf-qk9pl says:

    Stinging nettle and Dandilion…..Powerful medicine and free !
    My favorites !

  • @manjolaskendo4236 says:

    My favorite herbs are dandelion, sow thistle, papaver rhoeas and arugula cooked with leeks, garlic, oregano and ginger and tastes so good. Thank you for this video!!❤

  • @debrawright9275 says:

    I knew this already but I watched just to make sure! I am living testimony to this beautiful plant! As a former “problem drinker” I needed HELP! I found HELP through this priceless knowledge about 4 yrs ago. I would probably not be alive if it weren’t for dandelions. Thank you for sharing Dr. Berg! Hopefully many will benefit from this video.

  • @a.williams45 says:

    Thanks for this wonderful information, Dr Berg. Dandelions grow like crazy here in the UK and it’s a shame that they are not welcome as most people are constantly pulling them out or killing them. Their leaves and flowers can be used in salads, I enjoy them with other leafy greens such as spinach, lettuce and watercress with a bit of finely diced fresh garlic and homemade salad dressings 🌱🌼🧄

  • @jeffreywolfe1 says:

    I was diagnosed with Gilbert’s Syndrome (sort of harmless elevation of bilirubin) back in my 20s. That was nearly 40 years ago. Today, my bilirubin is completely normal in addition to all other liver enzymes, which at times were borderline high. My tonic? Roasted dandelion root tea. I’ve been drinking it for decades. I advise everyone to start drinking this tea, Gilbert Syndrome or no.

  • @wendellcallihan5341 says:

    Every spring at my Grandparents, fresh leaf lettuce and green onions from the garden, dandelion greens ‘wilted’ with hot bacon grease, lots of salt. Now that was something.

    • @Andy-le8xy says:

      Wilted??? Hideous, sounds nasty. Hillbillies will eat anything. I would be terrified to go to that granny’s home. “Here little one eat this wilted plant. Now try this mold. For desert we have maggots and a dying possum. Grandpa just ran it over for you!” Sounds like Missouri and it gets worse the closer you get to Arkansas.

  • @April-nl5uv says:

    When I was a child, I thought it was a pretty flower as an adult a annoying weed today a valued herb.

  • @youbetterwakeup2449 says:

    Many people make a tea out of it. Mix it with some lemongrass and natural honey, and you’ve got yourself a tasty, healthy drink.

  • @David-qx8jm says:

    Man you get me excited when i here this stuff come out of someone else’s mouth.
    This is stuff we were supposed to be taught by our parent’s. Is not being taught. Thanks Doc for spreading this forgotten….and hope you cover all the other fantastic weeds that grow in your back yard because our ancestors grew these things in there gardens they brought a lot here when they migrated to America. Now they grow wild in our back yards. Thanks farmer Berg keepemcoming

    • @pameti.dragoblago says:

      we did eat it back in former yugoslavia (at least in the parts of the country my parents were from). we ate it as a normal salad, but would put one or two boiled potato into it to soften it up. it was great as a salad. having said that, living in (quite polluted) city wasn’t exactly conductive to having it regularly – my dad would only collect it in the early spring.

      during the war we learned one interesting lesson: humans can eat everything pigs can it (as far as plants are concerned at least). the problem there is knowing what pigs eat.

    • @Bubbaluv8 says:

      Pay close attention also to the indigenous people who were here first. In my area it was the Ojibwa. I’m happy to say our area is supporting a resurrection and honoring and protecting of their wisdom, experience, and culture. I’ve learned much from them about my little spot of earth, the plants and their medicinal properties.
