Parsley is often recommended as a preventative herb. It is so nutritious that it increases resistance to infections and disease. The roots and leaves are very good for all liver and spleen problems caused by jaundice and venereal diseases. Parsley is effective in treating the kidneys by providing essential nutrients that help cleanse the blood filtering system. It helps protect and strengthen the urinary tract. It is a mild and gentle diuretic. As a diuretic, parsley can help reduce high blood pressure. Parsley is said to contain a substance in which cancerous cells cannot multiply. It should not be used during pregnancy, as it may bring on labor pains and can dry up mother’s milk after birth.
