Living: Herbal Medicine For The Reproductive Years
Pregnancy is such an exciting time. Most women are elated when they discover they are expecting a child—until the unfamiliar, and, at times unpleasant, symptoms set in. Herbs are excellent allies during this time to calm digestion, ease the mind, and support the body.
A nourishing tea blend for the expectant mama that is packed with minerals, vitamins, and supportive herbs.
See herbal applications section for how to make a medicinal strength tea. Dosage: 1 to 3 cups per day for 6 to 10 weeks before due date. Can be taken with or without food. Contra-Indications: None
Yield: 1 cup of tea
- 1 ounce Red raspberry leaf
- 1 ounce Lemon balm leaf
- ½ ounce Nettle leaf
- ½ ounce Alfalfa leaf
- ¼ ounce Ashwagandha root
This tiny seed is power-packed with flavor and healing benefits for the body. Used for centuries to heal digestive complaints and regulate the reproductive cycle, most traditional herbalists utilize fennel seed frequently. Safe enough for children, it is the go-to herb I give my daughter Cordelia whenever she is experiencing stomach aches, whether they are physical or emotional, as fennel works well to release gripping of the abdomen. New breastfeeding mothers can drink fennel seed tea or infusions to help their little ones with colic. It can also be used in morning sickness to calm the queasy stomach and help the mind become more clear. Modern research shows there are some slight estrogenic compounds in fennel, which may be why it aids in increasing breast milk and regulating menstrual cycle. Because of this, avoidance or small doses are necessary for those with estrogen-driven pathologies.
