I hope it's ok if I ask you a few questions about red clover and nettle infusion.
I am trying to conceive and also help my body prevent urinary tract infections (I usually get them from sex) and am looking forward to trying red clover and nettle infusions. I was wondering if you recommend me drinking one glass of each every day, or alternating days (one day red clover, one day nettle)?
Also, for how long is it safe to consistently drink both infusions?
Thanks, as always, for your advice and support:)
Hope you're having a beautiful day!
Both are to be considered as foods…how often would you eat spinach? Or romaine? Or carrots? Or parsley? Both nettles leaf and red clover blossom are excellent nourishing herbs. See the section on nourishing herbs in this article by Susun Weed, go to: www.susunweed.com/An_Article_Weed_Self-help3.htm
We like to drink nettles leaf infusion at least 4 quarts or more per week…as for the red clover, a few quarts per week is plenty for us…that translates to about 8 cups of nettles leaf and four cups of red clover blossom infusions per week, or two cups of either infusion per day.
In all honesty, I personally drink about four cups of infusion daily, sometimes six cups per day, and have been doing since the inception of our daughter, through pregnancy, through nursing, and beyond especially for my own health. Nourishing herbal infusion is my primary drink, supplemented by water….and other random beverages that come my way (once a week I may have a juice such as grapefruit, tomato, or a smoothie).
I drink infusion with most of my meals, and in between meals as well. Once acquired, for some difficult to enjoy at first, nourishing herbal infusions becomes a taste one ultimately craves, as the body knows the supreme nutrients that infusions contain.
There are no hard and fast rules about how much infusion one must consume….its really up to each individual, just like we each decide how many eggs per week we want to eat or if we decide to eat them at all, based on our personal beliefs, needs, and preferences.
Hope this helps,
