Shepherd’s purse is a highly astringent and drying herb primarily used to staunch heavy bleeding and tone tissues in conditions characterized by laxity. It can be a godsend for those with heavy menstrual cycles, or cycles that occur too frequent or continue too long. It can also be applied topically for varicose veins, hernia, or gout attacks.
*Due to its action on the circulatory system and uterus, shepherd's purse is best avoided during pregnancy. Check for other contraindications as well.*
THS recommends that you consult with a qualified healthcare professional before using herbal products, particularly if you take other medications, or if you are nursing, pregnant, or expecting to become pregnant.
