Silphium (Compass Plant)

· Breaks down neuro-toxins

· Anti-histamine

· Anti-inflammatory

· Analgesic

Recent Usage: (Silphium laciniatum) has been shown through clinical research to be possibly the greatest anti-neurotoxin substance found to date. Silphium is thought to breakdown and/or bind microbial neurotoxins. It has demonstrated stellar results in the elimination of the primary toxins released by Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative microbe in Lyme disease, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS and over 350 neurotoxic illnesses. In regard to Lyme microbes, Silphium also seems to assist in providing the body’s crystalline matrix with the information needed to resolve the pleomorphic phase, L-form of the Lyme spirochete. Clinical research reveals that Silphium may also bind heavy metals, and breakdown isopropyl alcohol, and benzene accumulations, adding to its phenomenal arsenal of beneficial effects. Silphium is recommended to limit herxheimer reactions during any type of antibiotic, antimicrobial treatments.

Bio-Resonance Scanning has revealed it to be highly beneficial in addressing the accumulation of ammonia in the brain tissue as seen in cirrhosis of the liver, hepatitis, and the local accumulations in the brain as seen in neurological Lyme disease. Silphium is also beneficial at clearing nitric oxide (NO), the metabolite of ammonia in the musculoskeletal system. Nitric oxide accumulates in the joints and muscles in reaction to Borrelia burgdorferi and other Borrelia strain spirochetes, which release ammonia which is almost instantly converted into nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes a hyper-inflammatory response in the tissues leading to fibrin accumulation, joint and muscle pain and stiffness, as well as potentially increasing the production of the thick fibrin-coating of tumors.

Silphitrin™ is in our first aid kit. We use it topically for poison ivy, for sprains and strains and broken ribs. We have used it on tooth pain, melanoma, and lowering blood sugar levels.

Historical Usage: Silphium laciniatum has been used in all forms of asthma and bronchitis, as well as for bladder complaints including frequent urination and urinary tract infection. It has been used historically to treat cancer of the throat and mouth as well as being beneficial in the wasting away and the “empty sensation” of cancer cachexia. It has been shown to be useful in cases of tuberculosis. It is mucolytic showing a strong ability to breakup mucus accumulations anywhere in the body. Silphium is especially beneficial in addressing pressure and acrid mucus in the supra-orbital, posterior sinuses. (See References below)

Personal Note: I am totally fascinated by this plant. It amazes me how God Almighty made this one plant that can help the body heal itself in multiple ways. One of the unique properties of Silphium is its molecular structure causes it to grow facing north and south, hence its name “Compass Plant.” This polarity orientation is maintained within its molecular structure and may positively influence the ever-changing internal and external environment. In other words, it makes your body more adaptable.
