Background

Red raspberry leaf has been traditionally used medicinally at least since the Roman times (some sources estimate 10,000 years). Various American Indian tribes were also aware of its healing properties.

Uses

Red raspberry leaf is used for gastrointestinal (GI) tract disorders, including diarrhoea & dysentery; for respiratory system disorders, including runny noses, flu and swine flu; and for heart problems, fever, diabetes, and vitamin deficiency. It is also used to promote sweating, urination, and bile production. Some people use it for general “purification of skin and blood.”.
Historically it has been used to regulate the menstrual cycle, for painful or heavy periods and easing labour and delivery. It is believed that raspberry leaf helps to condition the uterine muscles. Take only during the third trimester, starting with only one cup a day.
It can also be used as a poultice for wounds, sores and rashes; as an eyebath for sore eyes and as a gargle for sore throats.

Precautions

Do not take if you are sensitive to oestrogen, are using C.N.S. depressants, or other relaxing medications. Take with caution when treating diarrhoea as it is diuretic and can lead to electrolyte imbalance and dehydration.
