By the Middle Ages, Parsley had made its appearance into herbal medicines. It has been given credit for curing a great range of human ills, especially those having to do with the kidneys and liver. Parsley is an ancient remedy for kidney stones and gallstones.
One of the main medicinal uses of Parsley is to provide a toxic kidney with essential nutrients that aid in its cleansing, so that it might pursue the necessary bodily function of filtering the blood. Parsley as a blood purifier, provides the healthful nutritional material necessary for tissue maintenance of the urinary system. Parsley is a healing balm to the urinary tract making difficult urination easier. Parsley has been shown to be a slow and gentle diuretic.
Parsley directly inhibits salt reabsorption by body tissues and in this manner, is able to increase diuretic activity by the kidneys.
Parsley, in comparison with citrus juices, has three times more vitamin C, gram for gram. Parsley has been shown to have a higher content of iron than other leafy greens and is rich in potassium and other essential elements.
The roots and leaves of Parsley are used in cases of low blood sugar, if there is adrenal malfunction.
The roots and leaves work to normalize delayed menstruation, has a uterine toning effect, and also effects the prostate in men.
Parsley can be used during pregnancy, but not in high doses, as it tends to induce labor pains. Parsley has a drying up effect on mother's milk and can be used to help in the weaning process, but nursing mothers should avoid using it in large quantities. While mild doses of Parsley have a strong diuretic effect, large doses are known to cause congestion of the uterus membrane, causing irritation and discomfort, so it is recommended that Parsley be used only in moderation during pregnancy.

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on powerful cholesterol-lowering drugs for the rest of their lives."

A balanced diet and regular physical activity are the building blocks of good health. Poor eating habits and too little physical activity can lead to overweight and related health problems. By eating right and being active, you can enjoy good health and remain active throughout your life. Whether you are trying to maintain good health, or trying to get well from cancer, you should take a look at your eating habits and try to improve them. Unfortunately, most people in the western world, including many so-called vegetarians, get little or no real nutrition. With the abundance of food available to us, this should not be the case.
