Horseradish Health Benefits

What do you know about horseradish?

Well, it’s a truly special plant, bordered just between domestic and wild. What does this mean?

That on one hand, it’s essentially rich in nutrients, while on the other it possesses a truly unique resistance to the cold weather out there.

The holistic medicine recommends horseradish to treat over 100 conditions, with most of them having an infectious nature and taking place predominantly during the cold season.

The horseradish root contains a lot of vitamin C, useful for the circulatory and immune system, which are strongly affected by the cold weather.

Horseradish also contains some very important minerals, such as iron, potassium, calcium and magnesium. The pungent smell and taste of the root is due to several chemical compounds, including the so-called glucosinolates.

These have proved to be a true phenomenon in the fight against harmful bacteria, being often more effective than even the most advanced synthetic antibiotics out there.

Recent research has also shown that the horseradish root also has very strong cytostatic properties, glucosinolates being particularly effective in battling many types of cancers (skin, lung, colon, stomach etc.).

How to Benefit from The Powerful Properties of Horseradish

Horseradish Salad

Grate 3 to 6 roots of horseradish and on top of that grate a boiled red beet.

Mix the two vegetables very well, then add salt, oil and vinegar to taste. Add a little honey, then mix well and place the composition in a hermetically sealed jar with a lid.

You can also add fresh chives (I used about a dozen), cut into 1-inch pieces when serving the salad.

Also, you can keep this horseradish beetroot salad in the fridge for up to two weeks without problems. And they’ll still preserve their therapeutic properties.

Grate a horseradish root and mix it with 4 tablespoons of honey. Then stir well and let it sit for 20-30 minutes to soften.

Squeeze the liquid out of this composition, by using a gauze. And that’s how you’ll get a raw, natural syrup, filled with incredible properties.

Boil the leftovers that remain in the gauze in a little of water (just enough to cover them).

After boiling it, squeeze the horseradish root again, let it cool, then mix with the raw syrup.

Sinusitis and Rhinitis Treatment

In a red cloth, put 2 teaspoons of grated horseradish. Apply it on your forehead for one min or so, while taking care not to burn your skin.

Your nose should “unclog” almost instantly, with abundant secretions being removed, and your upper respiratory tract completely cleaned up.

Do this for four to five days in a row.

If your skin is too sensitive and don’t want to apply the horseradish directly on it, then try breathing as close to the cloth as possible. So you can inhale all the vapors emanating from the freshly rooted root.

Caution: Horseradish is administered with caution to people with irritable bowel or to those suffering from fermentation colitis. The abuse of horseradish in alimentation can lead to digestive disturbances and nerve disorders.
