Ecology and Phytosociology

The Black currant is a pioneer shrub that can be found in the northern regions of Eurasia, having adapted to conditions far from its native land through cultivation. Unknown to the Greeks and Romans, its wider use and cultivation began in 1712.

The “Traité du Cassis” (brochure on the health benefits of black currant) was reedited several times in 1750. Introduced as a cure-all, the black currant was forgotten during the 18th century, but rediscovered in the 19th. It has adapted to swampy land and alder-ash stands.

Indications for Use: Acts much like cortisone
It controls along with Alder and Birch.

  • To be used during primary inflammatory phase; plays a determining role if inflammation is caused by an allergic reaction. It is used to treat inflammatory conditions of the mucous membranes of the various tracts:
    • Respiratory tract: acute allergy, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, sinus infections, nasopharyngeal infections and hay fever.
    • Digestive tract
    • Urinary tract: diuretic, prostatitis.
    • By stimulating the 11 hydroxysteroids, it promotes the catabolism of urea, uric acid and cholesterol.
    • It acts on certain acute urticaria affections: Quincke’s edema, drug-related sensitivity.
    • It works on anaphylactic incidents following antibiotic therapy or insect bites (Alnus Glutinosa).
    • In cases of acute, post-infectious glomerulonephritis with microbial foci sequellaes, Ribes significantly accelerates the healing process.
    • Useful against the flu with Alnus Glutinosa (125 drops alternating every 2 to 3 hours) and Betula Pubescens.
    • Complements other buds in the treatment of osteoarthritis in adults with low metabolism.
  • Increases resistance to cold by acting on the pituitary gland and the body’s thermal regulation.
  • Adaptogen: Stimulates overall metabolism, helps regulate the immune system, delivers anti-degenerative activity and works in synergy with the main course of treatment (promotes the action of associated remedies).
  • Rheumatism, osteoarthritis
  • Improves the flexibility of ligaments and tendons
  • Treats osteoporosis and promotes bone healing
  • Helps the body combat the side-effects of toxic medications, such as anti-mitotic drugs: “antidote” effect. Combine with Sequoia gigantea.

Action on cells and coagulation
Definite stimulation of the eosinophilia.
