Poke, or phytolacca americana, is a commonly used herbal ally for its strong anti-inflammatory properties. Due to the toxic nature of this plant, it’s used in very small dosages as a medicinal for breast inflammation like mastitis, rheumatoid arthritis and other immune related conditions.
The fresh root is often tinctured but this tincture is of the fresh berries only. This gives the tincture a bright magenta color. Poke berries can really stimulate the immune system and flush the lymphatic system.
According to Susun Weed, it also has mild psychoactive effects and can induce an altered state of consciousness. If it’s your first time experimenting with this plant, she recommends doing so in your own home. The dosage is always quite small, here you can take 1-5 drops at a time.
According to Chinese Medicine, poke clears toxins, reduces swelling or edema and relieves Liver Qi stagnation. It can be used for lumps and accumulations like fibroids, endometriosis, fibrocystic breast tissue and cancer.
Poke is dry, bitter and pungent in nature. It’s important to only take a few drops at a time and monitor how your body responds.
Take 1-5 drops daily or as needed.
