Comfrey and comfrey root has been used from very ancient times, and is one of nature's greatest healers. Used for arthritis, it soothes and heals inflamed tissues, and it helps reduce swelling and pain in a most remarkable way. It also helps to heal wounds, burns, and broken bones.
"Modern science, however, has identified alkaloids in this plant that stress the liver," says Christopher Hobbs in his book Herbal Remedies for Dummies.

"Restrict internal use to two one-week periods per year."
