There is controversy about the therapeutic value of comfrey. It was used medicinally
2,000 years ago in Greece. And has been used ever since by various societies such
as the Europeans in the Middle Ages. Catholic monks cultivated it to use in healing.
the most common use of comfrey is to help with skin problems. The plant contains
allantoin that stimulates cell growth and repair while reducing inflammation.
Scientists and physicians believe comfrey should only be used externally because
it contains dangerous amounts of pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs).
applications should only be used for 10 days at most and no more than 4–6
weeks a year. Traditionally comfrey was known as ‘knitbone’ because it was
used to help heal bone fractures. Modern science has proven that comfrey
can improve bone healing. The allantoin helps replace and repair cells.
Comfrey has been used to
treat bronchial problems, sprains, arthritis, ulcers, burns, female problems,
acne and other skin conditions. It was said to help build bone and teeth in children.
Constituents of comfrey include allantoin, mucilage, steroidal saponins,
tannins, pyrrolizidine alkaloids, inulin, and proteins.
