Medicinal Usage

Since Greek and Roman antiquity the versatile comfrey has been used in a great variety of ways - as an external application for wounds and fractures, and as a herb that can be used for numerous internal problems, including bleeding. Introduced into North America by early settlers, the plant now grows wild in the eastern part of the continent and is also cultivated.

The name comfrey probably comes from the Latin conferva, "knitting together", from the plant's reputed power to make broken bones mend more quickly. Its botanical name, Symphytum, means "grown together", and several of the plant's local names in English likewise refer to its supportive properties.

Some question exists as to the wisdom of using comfrey internally. First, when it is not in bloom it can be confused with foxglove, a deadly poisonous plant. Second, it may be carcinogenic if taken internally over an extended period. However, a preparation of the roots or leaves shredded and pounded into a gluey mass is safe when applied to external injuries. The repairing process is accelerated, stubborn sores disappear, and broken bones - held in place by the preparation when it dries - heal much more quickly. Comfrey leaves have at times been used as fodder for livestock. Containing almost 35 percent protein, they are highly nutritious.

There is evidence that comfrey may reduce immunity if taken internally over a long period of time.

General Herb Information

Habitat: Wet places.

Range: Newfoundland south to Georgia, west to Ontario and Louisiana.

Identification: A large, conspicuous perennial growing to 3 feet high. Narrowly oval, alternate dark green leaves grow on an erect stem that branches at the top. The lower leaves may be 10 inches long, the upper ones smaller. Both stem and leaves are hairy and rough. Downy, pale yellow to purplish bell-shaped flowers (May-September) bloom continuously in drooping clusters.

How to Use the Herb

Commission E recommends comfrey leaf and herb for external use only. For the leaf - "Ointments and other preparations with 5-20 percent dried drug or equivalent preparations. The daily applied dose should not exceed 100 micrograms of pyrolizidine alkaloids." The same amounts obtain for comfrey root. The commission recommends "crushed leaf or root, extracts, and the pressed juice of the fresh plant for semi-solid preparations and poultices for external use."

Comfrey is a rejuvenating and antiseptic herb included in any skin preparation designed to counteract skin problems, specifically acne, blemished skin, irritated skin, rashes, and dry flaking skin. Toners and cleansers using comfrey infusion are gentle enough to be used on delicate skins and powerful enough to act on problem oily ones. Comfrey infusion or decoction will also rejuvenate scalp problems when rubbed into the scalp or used as a final rinse.

Both the leaves and root of comfrey can be used to support health to influence the bodily systems of the lungs, stomach, kidneys, and the bones and muscles. Tonic, demulcent, expectorant, vulnerary, and astringent properties make comfrey well-equipped to address many health complaints. It has traditionally been prescribed for promoting mending, broken bones, lungs, diarrhea, hemorrhage and bleeding, and lack of pepsin for protein digestion. The biochemical constituents of comfrey include allantoin, mucilage, tannins, starch, inulin, and traces of oil and liver-toxic pyrrolizidine alkaloids. The root contains steroidal saponins which, at least, partially accounts for its anti-inflammatory and pain-supporting properties.

Comfrey can be used to help support any rapid wound or bone healing. As such it can be used both internally and externally with outstanding results in the rejuvenating of fractures, wounds, sores and irritations. The allantoin in comfrey increases cell proliferation, which accounts for its rapid-rejuvenating powers.

The astringent property makes it useful for stopping hemorrhage, whether it be from the stomach, lungs, bowels, kidneys or hemorrhoids. To regulate bleeding, use a strong decoction of the root, using one-half to one ounce of the root every two hours until bleeding has stopped.

Comfrey will help the pancreas in regulating blood sugar levels. It helps support irritations associated with the gallbladder, kidneys, bladder, small intestines and stomach. It helps promote the secretion of pepsin and is a general aid to digestion.

Its demulcent properties, especially of the root, have been used to help soothe lung troubles and coughs. Comfrey root has the highest content of mucilage of any of the herbs.

Comfrey is extremely prolific in terms of its effects in promoting the rapid restoration of tissues and its growth habits in the garden. A small piece of the root will reproduce itself in a short period.

A common addition to herb formulas, especially for the potential to help support symptoms of lung ailments, is comfrey mucilage. Soak two ounces of dried comfrey root overnight in one quart of water. Simmer in a covered container for thirty minutes, strain, filter and squeeze through a muslin or linen cloth. Return the extract to the cleaned vessel and add six ounces of honey and two ounces of vegetable glycerine, and simmer for another five minutes. Cool and store in a wide-mouthed jar. Take two tablespoons every hour for acute health issues (including internal hemorrhage), or two to four times daily for chronic ailments.

There has been some controversial research in which the regular long-term ingestion of Russian comfrey root is claimed as containing certain pyrilizidine alkaloids which have been known to cause liver veno-occlusive issues in humans. In this condition the small and medium veins of the liver become obstructed which results in liver disfunction. Since pregnant women, developing fetuses and infants seem to be particularly vulnerable to these alkaloids, it may not be advisable for these to take comfrey root at all and certainly not for any prolonged period.

This information is still a point of controversy among herbalists for many reasons. While it has been demonstrated that feeding 6-week-old rats 30% to 50% of their total diet of comfrey root did cause health problems to develop, humans have never manifested such health problems from regular, long-term ingestion of comfrey plants with pyrilizidine (PA's) alkaloids. Instead, humans tend to develop liver venoocclusive issues. It is known that animals have quite different metabolisms than humans. What is often poisonous and toxic to one is quite safe and harmless to the others. Further, it is unlikely that 6-week-old rats would naturally consider comfrey root as a food worthy to constitute nearly 50% of their total dietary input. This is in view of the literally millions of people worldwide who have popularly and widely used comfrey for a variety of common ailments.

Independent laboratory analysis of three specimens of comfrey root conducted by a grower in Washington State revealed one without any PA's whatsoever, while the other two only showed extremely minute trace amounts, hardly enough for serious concern. When evaluating such data, it is important to keep in mind that high concentrations of many food-like substances taken over a prolonged period will eventually reveal some minor toxic component which would not be evident with normal consumption.

The problem with applying this type of scientific methodology with comfrey is similar to so many benign health restoration herbs such as a sassafras. In the case of sassafras, it is known to contain safrole, which despite its presence in varying amounts in such common foods and spices as basil, black pepper and nutmeg, is nevertheless considered to be carcinogenic to humans in its pure form. Sassafras is condemned as much as comfrey is, based upon the presence, even in a minute amount, of safrole, a substance that can be used to help support immunity in laboratory animals and humans when used in its pure form.

Plants have a dynamically complex biochemistry. In many instances this allows for small amounts of substances, which when isolated and concentrated might otherwise be poisonous in their whole life-form, to be quite safe and harmless. It is also a possible reason for the lack of any conclusive cases or historical records of liver veno-occlusive issues among humans who have been known to take fairly large long-term doses of comfrey root or leaf to help support a variety of health concerns.

It might be pointed out that the possible toxicity of comfrey only applies to internal ingestion, not to its most valuable external use as a poultice for broken bones, wounds and irritations. Further, many people have had wide experience using it themselves, observing only the most positive effects in its use either externally or internally. Recent studies have shown that not all comfrey leaf possesses pyrrolizidine alkaloids, and that which is harvested in late summer or fall seems to have only minute traces. The root has higher amounts than the leaf.
