Hogweed Fertility Herb

by Paula

Common Hogweed (Heracleum sphondylium)

Also known as "love plant", Hogweed has its own place between fertility herbs and is used by hundreds of years as a remedy against sterility, impotence and frigidity.

Modern scientific studies confirm the therapeutic value of this species, too little known. Medical studies have shown that the Hogweed has genital vasodilators and antiseptic action at uterine level and can compete with any synthesis drug for such therapeutic actions.

All the plant parts have refreshing and tonic properties, but the inflorescence and, especially, the seeds also have a curative power similar to ginseng, which it exceeds in many ways.

The seeds of this plant are one of the strongest hormonal stimulus and sexual tonic in the world flora.


Hogweed seeds restore biological youth and fertility, regulate the activity of the nervous system, help restore functional capacity of the kidneys, prevent and combat high blood pressure with an extraordinary high efficiency, with many other uses.

It is a perennial plant is being grown in Europe, where it may be encountered in the woods.

Diseases that can be treated or ameliorated by Hogweed

Female genital diseases

Hogweed is ideal as a female aphrodisiac, acting simultaneously on different "fronts" - it stimulates ovarian activity, favors vaginal and uterine muscle relaxation through its antispastic effect, has a very interesting effect of reducing anxiety, simultaneously with increasing desire and regulates menstruation.

It has a small downside - the smell, which some women find attractive, but others vehemently rejects. To compensate for this deficiency, add 5 tablespoons of crushed cardamom seeds to the Hogweed tincture preparation (cardamom is a very pleasantly perfumed seasoning herb).

Amenorrhea, female infertility, ovarian failure. Use 1 teaspoon of Hogweed powder with little water 3 times a day on an empty stomach. The effects occur in the first month of treatment.

Frigidity. Take the treatment with Hogweed tincture recommended for impotence (see below).

Premature Menopause. If you are looking for a miracle that will magically restore your youth and fertility, you found it. After only one month of treatment, during which you will take Hogweed flowers and seeds powder daily, one teaspoon 4 times a day on an empty stomach, the effects will occur. In order to enhance the action you can take simultaneously Dill seed powder in the same amount.

This remedy was discovered "by mistake", by middle aged women looking for refreshing treatment for who had diseases such as osteoporosis, cystitis and chronic nephritis, excessive sensitivity to infectious diseases, rheumatism, etc.. Using this plant, they were faced with their menstrual cycle restarting again, something that has scared them at first. After many tests, doctors have recognized that their body rejuvenated. It bears mention that treatment with Hogweed was accompanied by a predominantly raw vegetarian diet .

Adjuvant in various sexually transmitted diseases (gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamidya etc.), adnexitis and metro-adnexitis.

It was known since antiquity that men and women who consumed Hogweed were less likely to get genital diseases. Because of the aggressiveness of infectious germs that exist today it is best not to rely solely on the strength of this plant, but to strictly follow the physician indications in terms of prevention and treatment of these diseases. On the other hand, Hogweed can be a great help to the classic treatment of these diseases, because it enhances local immunity and increases greatly the circulation in the genital area.

Unfortunately the worst and also the most common complication of adnexitis is infertility. For a woman to become pregnant the egg released during ovulation should be fertilized by a sperm in the fallopian tubes "channel". If the woman suffered from adnexitis, the "channel" is narrow and it is possible that the egg can not be eliminated, so she can not get pregnant naturally.

Drug therapy in adnexitis, for example, is done during the menstrual cycle when blood circulation, which is usually poor, is much amplified in this area. Use Hogweed tincture to solve the blood circulation problem and greatly enhance the treatment, whether natural or allopathic.

Take one teaspoon of tincture 3 times daily with water. Treatment with Hogweed is at least 1 month, and for chronic diseases at least 3 months.

Male genital diseases

Hormonal and vascular impotence, male sterility.
Take 3 times a day 1 teaspoon Hogweed powder in a cup of water. It is effective on an empty stomach.

This preparation stimulates gonadal secretion, dilates the genitals vessels (an extremely important action for those that impotence occurs amid cutdown size blood vessels), increase the sperm number and it improves sperm motility (is stronger than Herb Robert / Geranium robertianum).

Unlike other drugs, it is also recommended for those with high blood pressure, because it is an excellent hypotensive. However, its power is high and you should know the precautions you should take when you use it. (read at the end of the article).
