QUESTION:

I need a picture of a Jamaican dandelion? Please

ANSWER: May-26-2009 by Wellesley Gayle




Hi John,

Please see the picture above.

Dandelion (Cassia Occidentailis) has been used for medicinal purposes since the 10th century and has proven value as a diuretic (flushing excess water from the body).

It also promotes the flow of bile and stimulates the appetite. Dandelion juice once enjoyed considerable popularity as a diuretic, laxative and remedy for rheumatism. In folk medicine, dandelion is also used as a remedy for haemorrhoids, gout, rheumatism, eczema, other skin conditions, and diabetes. (JamaicaGleaner.com)

Hope that helps.
Stay in touch John.

This is just awesome. I was merely trying to see what the dandelion plant looks like and found your wonderful site. God bless you for loving our country enough to invest your resources to help others, bringing awareness to the culture of our island. I look forward to receiving the newsletters and whatever you post.

I've been drinking the team of the parched sead for a while for my 'slipped disc' in my back as well.

I don't always drink it black (like coffee), I also add my Lasco and honey :-)
