Ecology and phytosociology

The common juniper is a tangled, bushy shrub that reaches a few meters in height and grows in clearings, heaths, pastures and idle hillsides. It is common to the northern hemisphere. Cold- and heat-resistant, the common juniper does not require specific soil conditions.  It is part of the mesoxerophile vegetation of grasslands and heaths and forms the grazing forest of calcicole xerophile plants.

Indications for use

  • Remedy for decompensation conditions
  • Powerful liver drainer. Gradually increase dosage to avoid massive release of toxins (urea, cholesterol, uric acid), which could have negative effects

  • Toxic, drug-induced hepatitis. Give in combination with chemical drugs to counter side effects (during chemotherapy, for example).
  • Hypertrophic alcoholic cirrhosis
  • Portal hypertension
  • Esophageal and gastric varices
  • Onset of ascites (acts as a powerful diuretic)
  • Kidney drainer: Chronic pyelonephritis, cystitis, chronic rheumatoid arthritis and osteomalacia

  • Nephrolithiasis with calculosis (alternate with Calluna Vulgaris)
