In the Doctrine of Signatures, the root (rhizome) of Solomon's Seal looks like bones. This observation led the old-time herbalists to experiment to see if it worked on that part of the body. Well, Solomon's Seal certainly does and is fantastic in assisting imbalances of the bodies' structures, i.e. tendons, ligaments, bones.
When you pull a muscle, you have muscle pain, but you also have the tendons connecting the muscles to the bones in need of healing. These connective tissues are a web throughout the body that holds all of the muscles. Solomon’s Seal adds moisture, ensuring that fluid balance is correct in these areas, making certain nutrients are getting where they need to go. This allows these tissues to heal from their 'pulled-out-of-shape state' back to "where they should be state.'
