Good to see it! I have just corrected one article on it today. Funny.

This forest is full of it and the other invasive plants.

What we call invasive plants have usually some strong qualities. For instance Vinca minor contains alkaloids which are used for treatment of cardiovascular diseases, leukemia and recently it was found in the USA that it enables plasticity of the brain. Not so many substances which can do that after stroke.

Very true Katarina. I am little bit interested in local native indian herbology (Haida and Salish first nations)
They have use for every plant in one way or other.
Most of it is not FDA approved but it has been used for generations with some success.

haida and salisha tribes - i didn t heard of them. But know something on Navaho Indians, very interesting. I like your "had some success" as it is like that in all sorts of medicines.medicine is art:) cure depends not just what, but also when, how much, to whom and with what. .)
