The Golden Wellness Formula-Yellow Root

The Golden Wellness Formula-Yellow Root is one of the best herbal remedies known to mankind. This herb has been in our household for five generations as I'm sure this cure all formula was with the generations before and will be with the generations to come. When I was a child, we didn't go to doctors for everything like we do now. Someone was sent to the woods to get yellow root. It was cleaned of the dirt and the bark was removed and a tea was made for us drink. At that time, we didn't have honey to sweeten it with and we had to drink it straight. That was the most awful stuff I have ever tasted, talking about bitter, it was beyond bitter with a capital "B".

Where To Find Yellow Root

Yellow Root herb grows in wooded areas, something like a forest. The Yellow Root Plant likes the shade and it grows in patches where the soil is dark, rich and moist. Our family originated in Alabama and as a child, we found yellow root near streams of running water, close to the shade of trees and other plants.

How To Make the Yellow Root Herb Tea

The branches of the Yellow Root Plant are washed first to remove the dirt. We pulled the whole plant up from the ground. Then the bark is removed and the stems or branches are washed again. They are broken into small pieces to fit in a pot half filled with water and brought to a boil and boiled for a least ten minutes. The formula is allowed to cool and then strained through a cloth into a container. When I was a child no sweetner was added but now we add honey to sweeten to taste. Back then we couldn't afford honey and sugar was preserved for my parents coffee.

Herbal Remedies

What we call The Golden Wellness formula is good for just about everything. The yellow root herbal remedies include but not limited to the following list. One herb, takes care of all these remedies:

  • lowers the blood pressure
  • controls blood sugar (diabetes)
  • acts as an antibiotic for infections
  • detoxes the entire body
  • boosts the immune system

Yellow Root is also known as Golden Seal in today's world. The yellow root herb that takes care of so many remedies is now grown, cultivated, processed into capsule form and extracts. It is also available with another powerful herb, echinacea . Known to boost the immune system, combat colds and related illnesses, such as flu.

      I have never found it in the store in a bundle. Would it be safe to say a small bundle would be a small handful / large handful? I just don't want to make it too strong. Thank you.

      HomeAgentPayne, thanks for reading my hub. Where I live yellow root is purchased in a small bundle of little yellow root sticks. Use a quart and a half water in a pot large enough and add the bundle of sticks, boil for 20 minutes or until the water is dark gold, let it cool and pour into a quart jar, minus the sticks, you can dispose of them. Sweeten to taste with honey, yellow root is very,very bitter. Pour about a half cup of the tea in a little container, now add the honey. Honey takes up room in the jar, that's the reason to pour some out. Shake, shake very well, now taste a little to see if it's sweet enough, if you have room left in the jar pour the remainder of the tea you set aside in the jar. If there is no room, refrigerate with a closed container until you have room in your jar. In the mornings take a hefty swig out of your jar and the same before bedtime. It helps with many things including hypertension and inflammation. I apologize for the length.

      I really enjoyed this article. Can you tell me the exact amount of yellow root I need to add to how much water? I am thinking of trying this for my Fibromyalgia. I would appreciate the help.
