Liver and Gallbladder Diseases
The leaves and roots of eclipta are used as cholagogues , which stimulate the contraction of the gallbladder and support the discharge of bile to flush out the system.
Eclipta alba leaf juice is a powerful liver tonic with the ability to remove obstructions from the ducts of the body and to promote their natural secretions. Other diseases of the liver-gallbladder system, such as cirrhosis of the liver, jaundice and hepatitis also appear to respond to Eclipta alba leaf juice.
Upset Stomach, Food Poisoning
Eclipta alba root tonic has been found to be an emetic and a purgative. Emetics stimulate vomiting, and purgatives stimulate colon cleansing.
Anemia can be treated with Eclipta leaf juice. It is a powerful blood purifier that has been shown to raise hemoglobin.
Pin worms and tape worms in humans are not just unpleasant, they are dangerous. Taking 3 to 6 teaspoons of fresh eclipta juice, mixed with castor oil, helps in getting rid of worm infestations.
NOTE: Eclipta alba leaf juice is difficult to find in Western countries, however eclipta powder is an effective substitute. It is made of the dried leaves and roots. Take ¼ to ½ teaspoon, mixed with water, or make a paste for topical applications.
