Flaxseed

(S) Uma

Part Used: seed

Energetics: sweet, astringent, /heating/pungent V- PK+

Tissues: plasma, blood, muscle, bone

Systems: excretory, respiratory

Actions: laxative, demulcent, emollient, expectorant, nutritive tonic

Indications: asthma, chronic bronchitis, pneumonia, chronic constipation, diarrhea, convalescence

Precautions: may not be strong enough for severe constipation and may feed congestion in the colon

Preparation: infusion, decoction, milk decoction, paste, powder (250 mg to 1 g)

FLAXSEEDS are a good tonic for Vata, for the colon and the lungs. They strengthen lung tissue and promote the healing of the lung membranes. They are excellent for chronic, degenerative lung disorders. They contain natural protein and calcium. As an expectorant and emollient, they combine well with honey. As a lung tonic they work well with licorice. They have similar properties to sesame seeds, particularly for strengthening the bones and the reproductive organs.
As a laxative, they differ from psyllium in being lighter and hotter, better for Vata, generally speaking, but more likely to aggravate Pitta. Take a warm infusion, one teaspoon to two tablespoons per cup (depending upon strength needed) before sleep for constipation.

Externally, they make a good poultice for ulcerated and inflamed surfaces, as they help dilate local blood vessels and relax the tissue.
