Red Clover • Trifolium Pratense

The Herb Of Immortality



Trifolium ( three leaves) pratense (grown in meadows)

I’m truly amazed at how many herbs there are that support breast health. When I first started this journey, I had very little information and it seemed like no one knew anything. Well after 6 years of digging and researching, I’m discovering all sorts of tools and one of them is red clover. You probably have this herb growing in your backyard or have walked past it many times.

In terms of it’s benefits for cancer, J. Hartwell author of Plants Used Against Cancer, has confirmed hundreds of cases of remission of cancer with the consistent use of red clover. Susun Weed also confirms that she personally knows of several such cases. Now, if you google breast cancer and red clover you’ll see that many cancer agencies and doctors do not recommend red clover if you have any kind of estrogen sensitive cancers or issues like endometriosis for fear that it may worsen these conditions, due to their phytoestrogen compounds.

Red clover has phytoestrogens (naturally occurring estrogens compounds found in plants) and when consumed it’s known to mimic estrogen. These are generally quite healing and supportive for hormonal health.  The intricacies of phytoestrogens can be very complex so if you’re dealing with serious issues, best to do some research before. On a more positive note, red clover also has lots of anti-cancer and growth dissolving compounds. So you have both the advocates and critics on opposite sides. As with everything, it’s important to do your research and do what’s best for you. Talk with different herbalists and ask them about their experience with red clover.  And if the placebo effect has taught us anything, is that what your body achieves what the mind (subconscious) believes. The intention with which you take red clover, or anything for that matter, will greatly influence your outcome.
