#24- Houttuynia Cordata

Houttuynia is an amazing water loving plant that many consider an invasive plant. I find it so interesting that many of the invasives are being used in Lyme treatment. There are so many awesome attributes to this plant and I mention many in the video below. Be sure to check out Stephen Buhner’s Lyme Co-infections books where he talks about this plant in detail and references so many amazing studies. Reverence Botanicals,  Woodland Essences and Nutamedix sell high quality extracts of Houttuynia.


I mentioned the gift of Houttuynia from Joe Hollis, an inspiring herbalist who runs Mountain Gardens down the road from our homestead. Joe has a wonderful YouTube Channel where you can learn a lot about Chinese Herbs.
