To relieve water retention
1) 10-20 drops of dandelion root tincture in a cup of water with meals and
before bed.
2) A strong infusion (one ounce of dried herb in a quart of boiling water,
brewed overnight) of the common weed, stinging nettle, not only relieves,
but also helps prevent further episodes of water retention. Weed says she
drinks a cup or more of this infusion daily whenever she wants to nourish
her kidneys and adrenals.

To moderate mood swings
3) Tincture of the flowering tops of fresh motherwort is a favorite
calmative of herbalist Weed. She uses 5-10 drops in a small amount of water
as a dose, which she repeats as needed, sometimes as frequently as 3-4 times
an hour, until the desired effect is achieved. "I never feel drugged or
groggy or out-of-it when I use motherwort to help me calm down," she says.
4) For women who consistently feel rage premenstrually, Weed uses 20-30
drops of motherwort tincture twice a day for a month to help stabilize moods
and urges the woman to take a moon day -- one day right before or at the
start of the menstrual flow which is set aside for you and you alone.
5) One or more cups of an infusion of the herb oatstraw (the grass of the
plant that gives us oatmeal) helps the nerves calm down and provides a rich
source of minerals known to soothe frazzeled emotions.

To relieve congestion and tenderness in the breasts
6) 20-30 drops of the tincture of cleavers, another common weed, works
wonders. This plant, also called "goose grass" was used as a black tea
substitute by the colonists. The dose may be repeated every hour or up to 6
times a day.
7) Women who get a lot of calcium and magnesium from their diet (leafy
greens, yogurt, and many herbs are rich in these minerals) have less breast
tenderness. Increase the minerals in your diet with a cup or more of red
clover/mint infusion daily.
8)Large cabbage leaves, steamed whole until soft, and applied as warm as
tolerable, can be used as a soothing compress on breasts which are sore and

To relieve digestive distress
9) A daily doses of 1 teaspoonful/ 5ml yellow dock root vinegar.
10) A cup of yogurt in the morning (buy it plain and add fruit at home)
replaces gut flora and insures easy digestion all day long.
