Parsley Part 2

There are some things you need to keep in mind when consuming parsley for a long period of time; it can result in skin allergies, anemia, liver, and/or kidney conditions. It can worsen kidney disease, and it is suspected to retain fluid which could lead to edema and high blood pressure.

Since parsley is also used for cracked or chapped skin, bruises, tumors, insect bites, lice, parasites, and as a stimulant for hair growth, it is applied directly onto the skin. Be careful though, because it can cause a rash and sensitivity to the sun.

Other then what is found in prepared meals, consuming larger amounts of parsley should be avoided by pregnant and breast-feeding women and by those of you who are taking the following medications, since parsley can interact with them:
Warfarin, Diuretic medications such as chlorothiazide (Diuril), chlorthalidone (Thalitone), furosemide (Lasix), hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ, HydroDIURIL, Microzide), etc.

People with an allergic reaction to parsley should avoid taking Aspirin; it could increase the severity of the reaction and in case you like to try it anyway, in spite of all the above warnings, make sure to ask your doctor before using it.

It seems to me that it is better and safer to just stick to the consumption of parsley in the small amounts as is used in prepared dishes. That way you don't have to worry about any interactions with meds and all the other unpleasant consequences it could cause.

There will be no unpleasant consequences when asking God for what we need. On the contrary; we can trust He will provide us with all that we need and even some!

Psalm 62:8
Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah
