Slippery Elm is a mucilaginous herb that coats, protects, and rejuvenates an area from infection, inflammation and other irritants. At the same time it acts as a further deterrent to many toxic substances through its ability to absorb and help them pass harmlessly out of the body. This mucilaginous property is especially useful in any case of inflammation or congestion, such as inflamed mucous membranes of the lungs, digestive tract, or urinary tract including kidneys, and in any ulcerous situation either internal or external. Mucilage is soothing to burns, colitis, lungs, stomach, and skin rashes of all sorts. It helps counter-balance either diarrhoea or constipation. Slippery Elm soothes the inflammations associated with diarrhoea and protects the intestinal linings from further inflammation, and the fibre it provides helps soften faecal matter and move it easily out of the body.
