I am reading your book, Herbal for the Childbearing Year and I have a question. We are trying to conceive and your recipe using Red Raspberry Leaves and Red Clover -- would it be possible to substitute using tinctures of the above? if so, how many drops? thanks!
....Would Susun happen to know of any herbs for male infertility?
....I was only asking because that is a large amount of herbs to concoct.
Yes, it does seem like a lot but that is why it is such a powerhouse of the nutrients and minerals needed. You can read more about the infusions here: http://www.nourishingherbalinfusions.com/
Compared to teas, etc. the infusions really are cost effective as well - especially if you can buy in bulk. The initial cost might be high, but you get a lot out of a pound of dried herbs. Online sources such as Mountain Rose Herbs, Red Moon Herbs and Frontier are especially recommended.
Have your husband drink the infusions as well, especially the red clover and oatstraw. Susun does address male infertility in her latest book, Down There: Sexual and Reproductive Health the Wise Woman Way, so you may want to check into that.
A few things she mentions:
Expect results in 7–9 months
• Ally with pumpkin seeds.
• Drink oatstraw infusion.
• Eat more shellfish.
• Experiment with astragalus.
Acupuncture, homepathic remedy Serenoa, zinc rich foods, foods with Vitamin E, lots of garlic ...
