I have had much help with you a couple of years ago as I had trouble
conceiving my second, and then started drinking my infusions, and now I have
a beautiful baby girl also, who also shares my love of infusions.
Well I am 44 years old, and am still breastfeeding. I've been in much pain,
and had an ultrasound done, and have a large cyst/endometrial inflamed on my
ovary. Doctors advise, stay on Motrin, and we will refer you to a gyno, but
that will take a while.
My period approaches, and I am terrified.
So my question should I get myself chickweed tincture?
How much a day?
Safe for breastfeeding?
Anything else you can suggest would be appreciated.
Hello and good to hear from you. So glad to hear of the blessing of your daughter and your love of infusions. Chickweed tincture should be safe to take while breastfeeding.
Here is an article from Susun on Chickweed
Our beautiful star is superb at dissolving cysts and benign tumors. She especially shines when it comes to getting rid of ovarian cysts. Since many doctors, frightened of ovarian cancer, are fast to suggest surgical remedies for ovarian cysts, having a safe and effective green ally can save us from major surgery. Using chickweed to dissolve a cyst or benign tumor is a slow process, and requires consistency. It also requires chickweed tincture made from fresh, not dried, plant material. You can buy the tincture already made. Or make you own: Fill any jar, large or small, with fresh chopped chickweed and 100 proof vodka. Wait six weeks and it's ready to use. A dropperful of the tincture taken 2-3 times a day for 2-16 months is the usual course.
I have seen chickweed dissolve ovarian cysts as large as an orange. One women used it to get rid of a dermoid cyst (which contains hair, bones, teeth, and fingernails); for that, she combined the chickweed with motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca) and cronewort (Artemisia vulgaris) tinctures in equal parts. These three plants together are an ancient Chinese remedy for many "women's problems."
