The lime sapwood decoction is very famous among the folk remedies of our herbal tradition, unfortunately not known by everyone. Instead, it could be useful, in its simplicity, for those suffering from gallbladder stones, or even kidney stones.
Linden sapwood: what is it?
Looking at the lime tree trunk in section, after the bark, we observe a formation called “wood” which, in the part closest to the bark, appears as a whitish cylinder: the sapwood. It is a living and functioning part of the tree in which the ascending current of the lymph flows and which also acts as a reserve organ for starch, oils and fats.
Gallbladder stones treatment: Linden sapwood properties and use
The sapwood of lime contains tiliadin and tyliroside used for the spasmolytic action in hepato-biliary diseases, in dyskinesias of the biliary tract and in biliary lithiasis. By “biliary dyskinesias” we mean “alteration of the filling and emptying mechanisms of the colescist” (Doreland). By “biliary lithiasis” we mean “the presence of stones in the bile ducts or in the gallbladder”; these stones are formed as a result of the growth of the components of the bile that go to form crystals. According to J. L. Roger (and also reported in “Phytotherapy for the pharmacist” by Dr. Chiereghin) it is recommended to prepare 100 gr of lime sapwood in herbal tea cut in 2 liters of water, boil for 20 minutes, filter and drink the decoction in the course of the day for at least 15 days a month starting from the cessation of painful crises. In case of biliary lithiasis, the mother tincture of the flue and the italic purifying agent are also useful, while turmeric is not to be taken.
..And for kidney stones…
For the historian Dr. Jean Valnet, on the other hand, decocted lime sapwood is also useful for kidney stones. In his book “Herbal Medicine, healing with plants”, the French doctor also tells us some practical experiences. Here is a brief passage from his book: “Mr. C., 59 years old from Reims, has been accusing for several years of” twinges” in the left lumbar fossa with, from time to time, a crisis of full-blown renal colic. The radiographs reveal in the pelvis of the left kidney numerous small stones of the approximate size of a grain of rice Treatment: 3 glasses a day of wild lime sapwood decoction at 40 g / l of water for 20 days: 1 month later, the patient is very happy in showing me the equivalent of a coffee spoon of small stones and gravel removed “. Or: “with 2 sapwood treatments per year for 10-12 days, Mr. L. has never suffered from urinary lithiasis again”.
