Fireweed has special affinities for the skin, bladder, immune system, and respiratory system. Used for treating certain disruptions and imbalances of what Tibetan Medicine calls the digestive fire. Specifically, its tonifying effects on the gut mucosa, combined with its anti-fungal nature, make it suitable for treating Candida overgrowth and helping to restore correct microbial balance to the GI system.
As known in most traditional healing systems, digestive fire and gut health are what homeostasis is highly dependent upon.
