Red Clover

RED CLOVER

ABOUT RED CLOVER {Trifolium Pratense}
A plant belonging to the legume family is a perennial herb that commonly grows wild in meadows throughout Europe and Asia, and has been naturalized to grow in North America. The red flowers at the end of the branched stems are usually dried for therapeutic use.

ALTERNATIVE NAMES
Beebread; Cow clover; Cow grass; Meadow clover; Purple clover

Genistein
The anti cancer and tumor properties found in red clover is due to a substance called “genistein” – it has the ability to prevent/starve tumors & cancers of the blood supply that they need for survival.

Isoflavones & Estrogen
The isoflavones found in red clover have been shown to produce estrogen-like effects in the body. Red clover is commonly used to help reduce symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and night sweats, PMS, while at the same time promoting breast enhancement and breast health. Red clover is an excellent blood purifier that over time gradually cleanses the bloodstream and corrects deficiencies in the circulatory system. It has been shown to thin the blood and reduce the possibility of blood clots and arterial plaques.

Bronchitis, Sore throats and the Skin
Red clover also contains calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, and vitamin C. Historically, it has often been used (and is still used) to treat whooping cough and other throat related conditions such as bronchitis and sore throats. Teas and tinctures have also been used to reverse skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

 


SUITABLE HERBAL FORMS FOR RED CLOVER

* Dried leaves
* Capsules
* Tablet
* Tincture
* Ointments
* Topical treatment

Dr Sebi has spoken against extract in regards to making monobasic substances. If we are not making teas, we should follow nature and make compounds because once we extract an ingredient from a natural plant it becomes a poison.

 

ESTROGEN

Are natural products safe to use that help produce estrogen or that work like estrogen?
How is estrogen bad and who is it bad for?

We often think the way we do because of the information that we have previously reviewed. Here is some additional information for your review in order to meet a few categories of concern within the nature of this question.

WHAT IS ESTROGEN?
Estrogens are hormones that are important for sexual and reproductive development, mainly in women. They are also referred to as female sex hormones. The term “estrogen” refers to all of the chemically similar hormones in this group, which are estrone, estradiol (primary in women of reproductive age) and estriol.

HOW IS ESTROGEN PRODUCED?
{IN WOMEN} In women estrogen is produced mainly in the ovaries; it is also produced by fat cells and the adrenal gland. At the onset of puberty, estrogen plays a role in the development of so-called secondary sex characteristics, such as breasts, pubic hair and armpit hair. During pregnancy, the placenta produces estrogen, specifically the hormone estriol. Estrogen controls lactation and other changes in the breasts, including at adolescence and during pregnancy.
{IN MEN} Men produce estrogen as well, but at lower levels than women. Estrogen in males is secreted by the adrenal glands and by the testes.

BENEFITS OF ESTROGEN
Women who properly replace their estrogen and progesterone usually feel better, sleep better, look better, think better, have stronger bones, firmer muscles, improved endothelial function, and longer life spans. An article in “HealthyWomen” reported that estrogen produced in the ovaries prevents bone loss by working in conjunction with calcium, vitamin D and other hormones that maintain bone health. When women have low estrogen levels, the risk of developing osteoporosis increases.

UNNATURAL SUBSTANCES (Bad Estrogen)
The “bad” estrogen also known as xenoestrogen –  a big fancy name for man-made estrogen made from our external environments usually from dangerous chemical substances.  Other names for xenoestrogen are: “estrogen mimickers”, “hormone imitators” and “endocrine disruptors.” These fake estrogen can build up over time in our body and create estrogen overload or estrogen dominance. But when you add a lifetime of putting this crap into our bodies, you can pretty much guarantee it is NOT safe and contributes to diseases like cancer. Excessive estrogen is supposed to get removed through our bowels (the toxic) and our urine (the natural). But when we are constipated and our diet is mostly junk, we get stuck with the toxins. Xenoestrogens just love to deposit themselves in fatty tissue, thus estrogen dominance can occur in men too. Subsequently, extreme exercise and anorexia can also cause a decrease in estrogen levels and women with low body fat may not be able to produce adequate amounts of estrogen.

PROPERLY REPLACING BAD ESTROGEN
Xenoestrogens are EVERYWHERE!  They’re in our drinking water, food, cleaning products, make-up, toilet paper, perfume, birth control, plastics, metals, tin cans, deodorant, pharmaceuticals— you name it and it probably contains xenoestrogens.
1. Eating according to the nutritional guide.
2. Red Clover tea.
3. A small cleansing package with Chelation.
4. And fasting.

Make an effort to reduce the use of items that may have Xenoestrogens. Replace what you can with natural plant based products and help your body get rid of toxic excess.

LUNG HEALTH

WHY IS RED CLOVER GOOD FOR THE LUNGS?

Expectorant & Sputum
Since red clover is known to promote the secretion of sputum; bringing up mucus and other material from the lungs, bronchi, and trachea – it promotes drainage of mucus from the lungs by thinning the mucus, and also lubricates the irritated respiratory tract. Sputum is mucus and is the name used for the coughed-up material (phlegm) from the lower airways (trachea and bronchi). This process is known as sputilization or expectoration. An agent that promotes the discharge or expulsion of mucus from the respiratory tract is known as an “expectorant” or an antitussive agent, which is a cough suppressant.

Sputum can be (when examined by the naked eye):

  1. Bloody(hemoptysis)
    (A) Blood-streaked sputum – inflammation of throat (larynx and/or trachea) or bronchi; lung cancer; other bleeding erosions, ulcers, or tumors of the lower airway.
    (B) Pink sputum – sputum evenly mixed with blood from alveoli and/or small peripheral bronchi.
    (C) Massive blood – cavitary tuberculosis or tumor such as lung cancer of lung, or lung abscess; bronchiectasis; lung infarction; pulmonary embolism.

2. Green or greenish colored – indicative of longstanding respiratory infection (green from degenerative changes in cell debris) as in pneumonia, ruptured lung abscess, chronic infectious bronchitis, and infected bronchiectasis or cystic fibrosis.

3. Rust colored – usually caused by pneumococcal bacteria (in pneumonia), pulmonary embolism, lung cancer or pulmonary tuberculosis.

4. Brownish – chronic bronchitis (greenish/yellowish/brown); chronic pneumonia (whitish-brown); tuberculosis; lung cancer.

5. Yellow, yellowish purulent – containing pus. The sputum color of patients with acute cough and no underlying chronic lung disease does not imply therapeutic consequences such as prescription of antibiotics. The color can provide hints as to effective treatment in chronic bronchitis patients:

  • (A) A yellow-greenish (mucopurulent) color suggests that treatment with antibiotics can reduce symptoms. Green color is caused by degenerating neutrophil Myeloperoxidase.

6. Whitish gray sputum color against a white color background (such as a white sink surface) tends to indicate either a specimen from someone who is dehydrated, and/or from an older person, and/or a specimen with a mixed, modest number of eosinophils and maybe some acute inflammatory neutrophil cells (this last choice tends to suggest a chronic allergic bronchitis).

7. A white, milky, or opaque (mucoid) appearance means that antibiotics are less likely to be effective in treatment because the likelihood is greater of a viral infection or allergy (even asthma…thick sputum) than of antibiotic-responsive micro-organisms.

8. Foamy white – may come from earlier-phase pulmonary edema.

9. Frothy pink – may indicate more severe pulmonary edema.

10. Clear – pulmonary embolism (clear to frothy); COPD chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (clear to gray); viral respiratory infection (clear to whitish & sometimes a hint of yellow); asthma (thick and white to yellowish).

  1. Hello,

    I have a question about agave. As much as I want to consume it, there are articles that have bad reviews about agave nectar having high fructose. I Know Dr. Sebi recommends it, I wanna know what’s the best and safe way to obtain and intake agave nectar syrup. Thank you.

    • I believe that agave is safe to consume, but it is just too sweet for me. Even when I apply a little bit in my bromide tea the sweetness is too distinctive. I may have to wait a long time before I try it again, lol. If you have decided to use it, just use a little bit.

      Here is what Dr. Sebi has had to say about agave:
      Agave may have a very bad reputation by many. Just like moringa has a very high reputation by many, but it is a hybrid. Agave is not a hybrid. Agave is a cactus that comes from the desert and they process the resin. It’s glucose free, not like sugar which has glycerinic acid. So agave coming from a natural source can not have glycerinic acid; that only come from cane.
