A birch is a thin-leaved deciduous hardwood tree of the genus Betula, in the family Betulaceae, which also includes alders, hazels, and hornbeams. It is closely related to the beech-oak family Fagaceae. The genus Betula contains 30 to 60 known taxa of which 11 are on the IUCN 2011 Green List of Threatened Species. They are a typically rather short-lived pioneer species widespread in the Northern Hemisphere, particularly in northern temperate and boreal climates.

 

Medicinal Action and Uses

Anti-Cancer - Betulin and betulinic acid, both present in birch bark display some anti-cancer and anti-tumor properties.

Anti-Inflammatory - Birch is a natural pain reliever containing salicylate, the compound found in aspirin. Salicylate relieves the inflammation and pain associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and generalized muscle pain. Salicylate deters the body's production of certain prostaglandins that are linked to inflammation, pain, and fever among other things.

Diuretic - Silver Birch has cleansing diuretic action that eliminates toxins and excess water. Birch bark and leaf is used as an antibacterial diuretic in the treatment of urinary tract infections and cystitis.

Skin Complaints - The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions of birch bark support it's traditional uses in skin disorders such as eczema. Traditional healers have long considered the leaves of the white and silver birch effective for skin rashes and hair loss.
