* Prophylaxis of migraines and headaches
Feverfew was known as “medieval aspirin” or the “aspirin” of the 18th century
It is commonly used for its beneficial actions in the treatment and prevention of headaches and migraines. A feverfew tea can help reduce symptoms of pain, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and noise.
It can also be helpful to reduce histamine levels associated with allergies and conditions such as hayfever, asthma, dermatitis, urticaria and psoriasis.
Due to its emmenagogue actions, it stimulates blood flow in the pelvic area and uterus, stimulating menstruation in females.
As this herb has an anti-inflammatory affect, it can be beneficial in rheumatoid arthritis.
Fresh leaves (2 daily) can be chewed or it can be brewed as an infusion as a Feverfew tea. It is a bitter herb which can be sweetened to be more palatable.
* Avoid during pregnancy, lactation and if using blood-thinning medication unless advised otherwise by your healthcare practitioner
