Shepherd's Purse (Capsella bursa pastoris) can help with the following:
 
 
Uro-Genital  Menorrhagia (Heavy Periods)
 Shepherd's purse has a long history of oral use in the management of obstetric and gynecologic hemorrhage. Uncontrolled studies have found intravenous and intramuscular injections to be effective in cases of menorrhagia that are due to functional abnormalities and fibroids. Its beneficial action in slowing blood flow is believed to be a result of its high concentration of oxalic and dicarboxylic acids. The use of botanicals should be reserved for difficult cases of menorrhagia, those cases where immediate cessation of blood loss is desired, and/or as a short-term aid to other therapies.
