Influence Fertility with Common Herbs and Plants


Visitors: 448

Some common plants that can influence fertility are red clover, partridge berry, liferoot, wild carrot and wild yam. You can grow these, or buy them at any health food store. Some other plants that have been known to increase or decrease fertility are oat straw, jack-in-the-pulpit, and parsley.

Found in fields and along the road, red clover is a favored plant to increase fertility. It's blossoms stay a bright pink from mid-summer to fall. The flower tops are harvested and either dried for medical use, or eaten as is.

The raw blossoms are often used in salads or cooked with grains, like rice. Another way to benefit from this fertility enhancing plant is to add one ounce of the dried blossoms to a quart size canning jar of boiling water. Seal and let sit at room temperature for at least four hours. To improve the taste, dried peppermint has also been added to the boiling water.

Many women have reported having successful pregnancies thanks to drinking a cup or more a day of the special flower and water mix. This mix can help even if there is scaring of the fallopian tubes, irregular menses, or just “unexplained" infertility. This herb does not work right away. It may take up to a couple months before any effects are noted, and up to a year or two for pregnancy to occur.

Partridge berry, sometimes called “twin flower" can most often be found blanketing the forest floors in evergreen. In the spring, when it flowers, there are two flowers per bud. Then, when the berries form, the two flowers fall off, leaving one berry to ripen. Definitely an interesting icon for fertility with the symbolism of two flowers forming one berry. Partridge berry leaves can make for a good salad or bean dressing. Fill a small jar with fresh leaves, adding in apple cider vinegar until the jar is full. Then seal the jar with wax paper and rubber band, labeling it with the date. Let the jar sit for at least six weeks before you enjoy.

A powerful medicine lies in all parts of the wildflower known as Liferoot. Liferoot is found in swamps and other moist places with rich soil. The flowers and leaves are known to regulate hormone production, relieve menstrual pains, improve fertility, and increase libido. The plant should be taken in small doses at least 14 times a month for results.

Wild Carrot or Queen Anne's lace is a proven anti-fertility herb that can usually be found on road sides. It is closely related to carrot, as well as parsley, dill, caraway, anise, and celery. Wild Carrot is also related to a now extinct plant, whose seeds were once used in ancient Greek and Roman times as birth control. The seeds of wild carrot are collected in late fall. A small study has shown that when eating a teaspoon full of wild carrot seeds, the effectiveness of it was 99%, and with virtually no side effects.

There is a danger, however, of confusing wild carrot, with poison hemlock. Poison Hemlock does not smell or tastes of carrot, yet people are warned to be careful. Something to look for is that Wild Carrot's leaves are hairy, while poison hemlock's leaves are smooth.

Wild yam has also been tested as an anti-fertility herb. Since it was originally used in birth control pills, taking wild yam extract in large doses blocks conception. However, when wild yam is taken in small doses it actually increases fertility. When taken daily, the hormone like substances found in the root convert into actual hormones like progesterone, which decreases fertility, or LH and FSH, which increase fertility.
