JUNIPER BERRY formerly Cedar Berry
Cedar berries are called many names, they are sometimes referred to as one-seed juniper, cherrystone juniper, New Mexico Cedar, West Texas Juniper, or their scientific name, Juniperus monospermous. Juniperus monosperma, also known as one-seed juniper is native to the Southwestern United States
The cedar berry tree has a long history in Native American medicine. Native Americans have used juniper to treat diabetes; such treatments by the Navajo, for example, are under clinical study; clinical studies have shown that treatment with juniper may retard the development of streptozotocin diabetes in mice. Native Americans also used juniper berries as a female contraceptive. The 17th Century herbalist physician Nicholas Culpeper recommended the ripened berries for conditions such as asthma and sciatica, as well as to speed childbirth.
Many parts of the tree are used in traditional medicine medicine due to its diuretic, antibiotic, germicidal, and antiseptic affects. Among the conditions that cedar berry has been used to treat are cough, fever, rheumatism, diabetes, tuberculosis, scurvy, toothache and to promote menstruation. Cedar berries have anti-viral and anti-fungal properties, stimulate the immune system, clean the lymph system, and can be used externally for warts.
When it comes to preparations cedar berries can be used fresh or dried, added to food as a flavoring/preservative; steeped in boiling water to make a tea or infusion or tea for flavor or tincture form.
Besides the medicinal uses listed above, juniper boughs and leaves were often burned to help purify the air. While there has been little formal research done to substantiate the medical claims, a number of botanical databases note that the various chemical constituents of the leaves and cedar berries do have emetic, diuretic, antibiotic, germicidal and antiseptic properties. Dr. James Duke notes that the plant has chemicals that suggest it may help the body fight arthritis, asthma, cough, congestion, hepatitis and muscle stiffness.
Best when added to food
SUGGESTED USE FOR PEOPLE Generally, for average size adults start with 30 drops 3 times per day; may be taken up to 5 times per day.
Precautions: Cedar berry can be toxic when taken in large amounts. It should not be used by people with kidney or urinary tract problems, or by pregnant or nursing mothers, as it causes contractions. As with any supplement, you should talk to your healthcare provider before making cedar berries part of your daily routine.
***When treating more than one pet with the same dropper, it is necessary to assure sterile administration without carry over from pet to pet. The best way to assure this is to use the dropper only to transfer product to an individual sterile oral syringe - using a different syringe for each pet. (This method will also reduce the chances of product contamination.) Those syringes should be sterilized after each use. Each pet should have its own syringe that is not shared with another pet.
The use of a syringe containing measured drops from the dropper will also remove the risk of the animal biting the glass dropper.***
