Summary
Sheep sorrel is one herb that the herbalist should not forget, its status as a weed just means that one has not yet realized the benefits that the herb offers. Sheep sorrel detoxifies the body through a diuretic and sweat inducing action, effectively cleansing the kidneys in the process. Sheep sorrel is rich in minerals and vitamins to nourish the body while it cleanses it. Nurse Rene M. Caisse, the originator of a four herb formulation called Essiac, believed Sheep sorrel was instrumental in helping her patients, and believed this herb above the others played the most important role in their miraculous recoveries.
