Parsley Materia Medica


Parsley is considered to be selectively healing to some, while toxic to other, wild animal species. Parsley is a particularly nutrition-rich food. Practitioners of natural medicine have long favored it as a powerfully healing food. Parsley is a bountiful source of both vitamins and minerals. In the Middle Ages, parsley was used to treat loose teeth, a condition often related to scurvy. It was also used as a specific for dimness of the eyes, commonly due to vitamin A deficiency.

As an herbal medicine, parsley is classified as being: tonic (nerves); antispasmodic, carminative (clears flatus); laxative, diuretic, emmenagogue (encourages menstrual flow); expectorant.
