Red Clover (Trifolium Pratense)
Red Clover is one of my favourite blood purifying and blood building herbs. It’s also one of the most powerful herbs to support my lymphatic system and cleanse my lymph fluid. I really appreciate how red clover works to remove toxic heavy metals AND pesticides, like DDT out of my body—plus it has quite an energizing effect on my body. I used red clover when I was struggling through my painful and erratic periods too.
Red clover is the ultimate tool for remineralization, and it makes an amazing replenisher of deficiencies - specifically in molybdenum, manganese, selenium, iron, magnesium, Vitamin A and the B vitamins. Medical Medium says that red clover is loaded with disease-fighting alkaloids, and can offer way more benefits than any multi-vitamin on the shelf. He suggests drinking 3 cups of red clover tea daily.
What other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use red clover for?
If I suffered with any blood disorders, liver disorders, or liver dysfunctions, I would bring in red clover. If I was dealing with any strain of the Epstein Barr virus, herpes virus, was diagnosed with Lyme, had high blood pressure, chronic loose stools, was dealing with menopause, had blood sugar imbalances, or was cravings for sweets, I would make red clover part of my healing protocol.
I use dried organic red clover in my herbal infusions which I like to enjoy in the evening. Sometimes I’ll pair this herb with Cat’s claw or cleavers, along with hibiscus. When fresh herbs are available, I will throw fresh thyme and lemon balm into the mix as well. If I’m making a tea, I’ll use 2 tsp of red clover to 1-1.5 cups of hot (not boiling) filtered water for one hour. Then I’ll strain it and sometimes I’ll add raw honey right before consumption.
Medical Medium suggests one cup of red clover tea a day supports purification of the body. The herbs healing and cleansing properties will work overnight to find and discharge poisons from your system, making them readily available for your liver to process in the wee hours of the morning.
