RASPBERRY is an effective anti-Pitta herb with affinity to the colon and female reproductive organs, where it has a strongly astringent and mildly tonifying (nurturing) action. It raises prolapse, stops hemorrhage, gives tone to the muscles of the lower abdomen, soothes the mucous membranes and allays inflammation. It is a safe, mild astringent for sore throats, diarrhea (it is good for children), nausea, heartburn and ulcers.
As a uterine tonic it can be combined with stronger tonics like shatavari, in proportions of 1 to 3. For menstrual complaints it combines well with rose flowers and hibiscus flowers. As a good astringent douche for uterine inflammation, leucorrhea or prolapse, it can be combined with small amounts of myrrh.
