Horseradish can grow up to six feet tall; it has large edible leaves and a branched stem.
Bronchitis, sinusitis, rheumatism, anemia, flu, and even facial paralysis can be treated by using horseradish. As for sinusitis and rhinitis it is enough for a cataplasm to be placed on the forehead along with two spoons of grained horseradish so that the nose gets immediately decongested. This treatment is repeated 4 to 5 days in a row and it gets interrupted once burns occur.

Against bronchitis, flu and lung congestion, horseradish flour is applied like a cataplasm on the chest area for a half an hour up to an hour. This treatment is repeated once every two or three days.
