Goldenrod is often falsely accused of being an intensely allergenic plant, because of its unfortunate tendency to bloom brightly at the same time and often in locations quite near to the truly allergenic ragweed. However, actual allergic reactions to this gorgeous herb are unusual.
What Is Goldenrod Used for Today?
Warning: Urinary conditions such as kidney stones are potentially serious. For this reason, medical advice is recommended.
A typical dosage is 3 to 4 g of dried herb 2 to 3 times daily. Make sure to drink plenty of water while taking goldenrod, to help it do its job.
