Raspberry leaf 40gms
Chamomile 40gms
Black Cohosh 30gms
Rue leaf 15gms
Ginger root (cut) 15gms

The above amounts make 140 gms of herb, enough for many treatments for absent, painful or heavy periods. The proportions are given so that a person can make more or less according to their needs or from what is available.


The dosage to have a pronounced effect is to pour one large cup of freshly boiled water over 3 hpd tsps, or about 3-4 grams of the herbs. Cover and allow to steep for 10 minutes. Strain the tea and drink hoit or cool as preferred.

The taste of this tea is strong but quite acceptable and there has been excellent feedback from many people as to how well it has helped with painful, heavy or absent periods. There will be no harm done by these herbs at these dosages but this tea will not suit everyone's constitution so, if you will try it, please be open to listening to your body's reactions to it before committing to continuing on to longer term use.

Please understand that I cannot personally advise you without seeing you in my clinic.
This living 'book' is my labour of love so, wherever you are, I wish you peace & good health!
