Dandelion lion root (taraxacum officinal) has gotten the highest praise from herbalist Dr. Sebi along with many other natural healers such as the late great Dr. Alvenia Fulton, Dr. Afrika, and most recent natural nutritionist brother dick Gregory. Queen Afua mentioned dandelion as "juices to the rescue” for detoxifying. Dandelion root is part of her womb wellness cleansing food plan. What makes this herb so highly revered by these naturalists? You and I are about to find out why.

Dandelion root once said by Dr. Sebi to have been used to treat all of the seven major organs in the human body. I now understands why because I fact checked the benefits of the dandelion root herb. The parts of the herb used are the leaves and its roots. The organs the herb affects are listed below.

Dandelion properties are galactagogue, astringent alternative, stomachic, lithotriptic, hepatic, diuretic, and cholagogue.

Dandelion affects the blood, pancreas, gallbladder, intestine, kidneys, liver, and stomach. It now makes sense why Dr. Sebi used dandelion root to treat the major organs. Queen Afua said to drink dandelion tea made from its leaves and roots to strengthen the woman womb. She recommended it for anemia, and she even said dandelion tea purifies and expel acid from the blood. So, let's explore even more powerful healing properties of the dandelion root herb.
