My very best-selling herbal tea blend, B*tch’s Brew, is such a huge hit because it works with women of all ages, from young girls just figuring out what it means to be a woman with a period, to all of my fertility patients trying to conceive, to women starting to experience the symptoms of menopause.
Why is it so awesome? And why do I personally drink a cup or two every day of the 2nd half of my cycle?
Here are just *some* of the amazing benefits of the ALL ORGANIC ingredients contained within.
Ginger: Warms the reproductive organs to help invigorate blood and improve menstrual cramps.
Raspberry Leaf: Rich in vitamins B & C and minerals including potassium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and iron. It strengthens the uterine wall, which improves fertility and help to reduce cramping.
Nettle Leaf: Contains vitamins A, C, D & K. Helps support fertility. It's highly anti-inflammatory and a natural anti-histamine. Great for liver detoxification.
Lemon Balm: Possibly my all-time favorite plant. So soothing ... can help with stress, anxiety and insomnia associated with PMS.
Milk Thistle: Mildly estrogenic herb that supports aromatization of hormones in the liver. Helps balance hormones.
Lady's Mantle: Often referred to as a "miracle" in treating gynecological issues. Invigorates the blood to prevent blockage and stagnation. Benefits endometriosis.
Red Clover Flowers: Purifies the blood and has a mildly estrogenic effect that assists in fertility and creates a more regular menstrual cycle.
Skullcap: Powerful herb that was often used ceremonially to introduce a girl into womanhood. Anti-anxiety, promotes restful sleep and contains large amounts of flavonoids, which contribute to its antispasmodic (anti-cramping) activity.
Yellow Dock: Helps reduce stress, cramping and headaches associated with the menstrual cycle.
Borage Leaf: Can support the mood swings and emotional distress triggered by hormonal fluctuations.
Passion Flower: Deeply calming, can reduce the stress, anxiety and insomnia often associated with PMS. I believe this one can help to connect a woman to her own passion and power, contained within her womb.
Yarrow Flower: Relieves inflammation and congestion of the uterus, which aids in pain reduction, as well as proper circulation to the reproductive organs.
Black Cohosh: Has an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect on the body. Benefits reproductive health of women with PCOS ages 35+.
Dang Gui: Invigorates and tonifies the blood, regulating menstrual cycles. Has been shown to help thicken the uterine lining.
Wild Yam Root: Contains the steroidal saponin aglycone diosin is converted in the body to act on estrogen receptor sites in the hypothalamus, which in turn may aid in estrogen balance.
Chaste Tree Berry: Influences hormone levels. May promote the release of luteinizing hormone and, in turn, increase levels of progesterone. Can help with fibrocystic breasts, infertility and menstrual syndromes.
Plant medicine is key, Sisters. Whether you're trying to conceive, have difficult periods, terrible PMS or are the mom/ dad to a teenage daughter, B*tch's Brew WILL help. It's seriously so beautiful that I consider it magic... I mean, plants and herbs are magical, right?
Admit it... either you need this or know someone who does. There's no harm in *gently* reminding a friend that this might be of benefit.
