Stinging nettle, oatstraw and red clover herbs heal menopause challenges naturally

Everyone knows that calcium is an important mineral for good health. But did you know that it helps prevent cognitive impairment, high cholesterol levels, cardiovascular disease, gum disease, and cancer? And it helps lower blood pressure and prevent bone loss associated with osteoporosis.

Here’s the real clue for why you need to pay attention to getting enough calcium - all of these health challenges are associated with aging.

But most calcium supplements are sold in ‘horse pill’ size supplements that many people are reluctant to take because they’re afraid of choking!! Besides chances are such a compact pill won’t be broken down in your digestive system and it’ll leave your body during a bowel movement!!

If you want to get enough calcium and make sure you absorb it, below are a couple of suggestions that you may want to try…

A simple and inexpensive solution is drinking calcium-rich herbal infusions every day. Herbs with the most calcium include stinging nettle, oatstraw, alfalfa, burdock root, cayenne, chamomile, fennel seed, hops, horsetail, lemongrass, parsley, peppermint, plantain, raspberry leaves, red clover, rose hips, shepherd’s purse, violet leaves, yarrow and yellow dock. Kelp and flaxseed also contain calcium.

An herbal tea is made with 1 to 2 tsp dried herb and steeped for about 10 minutes. An infusion uses more plant material and it’s steeped longer than an herbal tea to break down the plant material and allow a large amount of nutrients and medicinal substances to end up in the infusion.

How do you make an infusion?

Susun Weed advises…place one ounce of dried herb (equal to 1/4 lb of fresh herbs) in a 500 ml (1 pint) jar. Pour just-boiled water over the herbs. Cover and let sit at room temperature (flowers: 2 hours maximum; leaves: 4 hours; flowers, leaves & stalks: 4 hours; seeds & berries: 30 minutes maximum; roots: 8 hours or overnight.) Long steeping extracts chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and other medicinal components. Drink at room temperature, hot or iced. Refrigerate what is not used immediately.

How much to drink daily?

2 cups for a person weighing 125 to 150 lbs.

Stinging nettle infusion is an amazing powerhouse of nutrition – calcium, magnesium, chlorophyll, Vitamin K, chromium and many other nutrients.  Stinging nettle can help prevent osteoporosis and nourish the adrenals to help your body come alive with new vitality. It can also help with night sweats, exhaustion, anemia, chronic profuse menstrual flow, menstrual cramps

Weed advises alternating infusions of stinging nettle, oatstraw and red clover.

She recommends violet leaf infusion for breast lumps, fibrocystic breasts and premenstrual breast tenderness.

If all this seems like too much work, Isagenix has a powdered calcium supplement that contains 1020 mg calcium lactate gluconate and the herb horsetail. It can be mixed into water, juice or whey protein powder and blended into a shake.
