Warning: Last items in stock!
In the main, it is the leaves that are used which have a slightly acidic taste. They can be applied externally or taken internally depending on what we want to treat:
- Externally: mashed leaves used as a poultice, compress or patch; juice from the leaves mixed in oil or Vaseline as an ointment.
- Internally: raw leaves in salad; fresh juice (add water for greater volume); infused leaves as a herbal tea. This is the method of treatment in cases of cancer.
Dosage for internal use: 30 grams per day of fresh leaf (approximately the size of two credit cards). Infusions can be taken an hour before every meal, using a teaspoonful of leaf per cup. In all, three cups of infused leaf per day.
Contra-indications: Do not take the plants during pregnancyy as they can stimulate the uterus. It is not advisable to take the plant continuously over long periods of time if no treatment is required. The plant's composition includes components like bufadienolides which are cardiac glycosides; therefore patients who have suffered from heart disease should consult with their doctor. Clinical investigation into kalanchoes indicates that toxicity may occur if there is abuse in the amount taken, and states that in doses of up to 5 grams of plant per kilo of weight, there is no toxicity (that would mean 350 grams of leaf for a person weighing 70 kilos, effectively a dosage four to ten times the recommended amount).
Storage: Remove from packaging and store in a cool, dry place. Do NOT store in the fridge.
