“There are two kinds of knowledge: knowledge of religion and knowledge of the body.” ~ Prophet Mohammed (a.s.)
Not far from our house we have fertile meadows that carry from Spring to late Summer lush fields of red clover. These modest little pink to dark purple colored flowers are not only gentle to the eye, they are also a great source of nutrition for insects, animals and people alike. It tastes wonderful in salats, but also makes dried a great tea and is a healing agent for both women and men. Traditionally Red Clover tea is known as hormone balancing herb for women in hormonal distress, mainly with menopausal or menstrual problems. However, I also found it to be a very good healer for women (and men) who went through major upheavals and emotional turmoils and it can take the edge even off post traumatic symptoms, depressions and associated problems such as chronic pains, nervousness, anxieties and dark moods.
Due to it’s natural hormone content it increases bone density, smoothes the skin, increases circulation and helps to have a restful sleep. It is also very useful for the treatment of Asthma and Bronchities. I have also heard of people who drank Red Clover tea against mental health issues such as depression and they reported an easing of their symptoms. Red Clover is also known to be a blood purifier, expelling toxins form the blood and inner organs.
“Due to it’s natural hormone content it increases bone density, smoothes the skin, increases circulation and helps to have a restful sleep.”
I am very fond of the little red clover plant which carries such great qualities with it and I enjoy sitting in fields of Red Clover during the summer, for a shared picknick or just for looking at the flowers.
A full treatment with Red Clover takes about 120 days (3 months). I recommend to drink 2-3 cups of Red Clover infusion daily for this period.
