It’s about 13 years since I got Aremid. He’s just started treatment for hyperthyroidism.

(Lycopus americanus) Medicinal use of Water Horehound: The whole plant is used as an astringent, hypoglycaemic, mild narcotic and mild sedative. It also slows and strengthens heart contractions. The plant has been shown to be of value in the treatment of hyperthyroidism, it is also used in the treatment of coughs, bleeding from the lungs and consumption, excessive menstruation etc. It should not be prescribed for pregnant women or patients with hypothyroidism. The plant is harvested as flowering begins and can be use fresh or dried, in an infusion or as a tincture.

(Lycopus uniflorus) The whole plant is antitussive and sedative. The roots were a staple food for some native North American Indian tribes. The crisp white tubers can be eaten raw in salads or cooked in soups etc. When boiled for a short time they are said to make an agreeable vegetable, somewhat like Chinese artichokes (Stachys affinis).

    looks like one of the bugleweeds, genus Lycopus, though I’m not sure of the species

    Une belle photo d’ambiance, permettant de bien voir la plante photographiée. Il y a deux espèces de lycopes au Québec, l’une aux feuilles très découpées, l’autre aux feuilles plus dentées que découpées; il me semble bien que c’est à cette dernière que l’on a affaire : le Lycope uniflore (Lycopus uniflorus). La différence n’est pas toujours évidente.

    Merci Alain pour la distinction. La description de Lycopus uniflorus ne mentionne pas "mild narcotic"… je verrai bien après ma tasse de thé !
