Around the year 1800, Dr. PERCY wrote: "In all Northern Europe … birch water is the hope, happiness and panacea of the inhabitants, rich and poor, big and small, … Skin diseases, buttons, blotches…rarely resist to it. It is a valuable remedy in rheumatic diseases, in the remainders of gout, in a crowd of chronic evils against which medical science is so exposed to fail ".
The sap, also known as "birch water " is exclusively collected in spring, just when the body, coming out of the winter, needs cleansing itself of all the then accumulated wastes. It is spring which will make inflate the birch buds which contain many active ingredients (essential oils, tannins, flavonic derivatives , sesquiterpenes and vitamin C).
The buds and the sap activate the diuresis and the elimination of organic wastes such as uric acid and cholesterol.
The birch bud is successfully used by people suffering from water retention (causing edema, obesity ,…), rheumatic diseases, osteoarthritis and gout, cellulitis, kidney and bladder lithiasis, certain skin diseases, often caused by defective functioning of the excretory system.
Birch is a general drainer for the liver (anti-toxic) and the urinary tracts (nephritis, kidney stones). It is particularly active in osteoporosis, arthritis, chronic polyarthritis (in association with blackcurrant macerate).
Of Yang nature, it is a tonicum useful in rickets, disorders of growth, general tiredness.
