Beetroot for some disorders

Constipation and piles
The cellulose content of the beet acts as a bulk residue, increases peristalsis and eases the passage of stool. Its regular use thus prevents habitual constipation. A decoction of the beetroot is highly valuable in chronic constipation and hemorrhoids. It may be given in doses of half to one tumbler at bedtime

Circulatory disorders
Beet juice is an excellent solvent for inorganic calcium deposits. It is therefore, valuable in the treatment of hypertension, arteriosclerosis, heart trouble and varicose veins

Kidney and gall bladder disorders
The beet juice, in combination with carrot and cucumber juice, is one of the finest cleansing materials for kidneys and gall bladder.

Skin disorders
The water in which beet roots and tops have been boiled is an excellent application for skin inflammation, particularly boils. For an irritable skin, measles and eruptive fevers, the body should be sponged down occasionally with a mixture of three parts of beet water to one part of white vinegar.

Menstrual and menopausal disorders
Beet juice has been found to be very effective for menstrual disorders when used in small quantities of 60 to 90 ml two or three times a day. During menopause, this procedure has been found to be more helpful than drugs or synthetic hormones.

The decoction of beets mixed with a little vinegar can be used externally to cleanse scurf. For dandruff, the beet water should also be massaged into the scalp gently every night.

Beets can be taken in a variety of ways. They are widely used in salads and in the preparation of pickles and chutney. They can be baked like potatoes or boiled, steamed or cooked.
