She who has a hundred husbands

Yes. That’s right. That really is the name of a new supplement I am taking which I cannot rave highly enough about. I first heard of it via the lovely Kate Magic Wood, our resident JUNO raw food columnist. Its Sanskrit name is Shatavari. It is a wild asparagus and one of the best women’s herbs around, having been used in India for hundreds of years. According to one Ayurvedic website: “This herb is known to increase Sattva, or positivity and healing power. It also enhances the feelings of spiritual love, and increases Ojas.” Come back skeptics, usually I’d be with you, running straight for the door at any claims to increase Ojas…

It is a nutritive tonic, good for…
Women’s menstrual health – balancing hormones, lightening bleeding, leveling mood. It is also good during the menopause, threatened miscarriage and infertility.
Supporting milk production and breastfeeding
Strengthening the libido.
And many more specific ailments such as peptic ulcers, and low sexual functioning in men.

As far as I have read it has no contraindicators. It is gentle but powerful. I feel a glow around me, an added strength of life force, and a shiny happy womb area and a very easy moon time! I feel really good in my body – I shan’t tell you what happened when I reported these effects to my husband having just stepped out of the shower 😉

The blend I am taking comes from Pukka (my favourite herbal tea company) which also contains seaweed, ginger and spirulina to give you a boost.

and the roots!

I am not generally a supplement taker, or a tonic taker, as many frustrated friends who only want to help will tell you. But this, this is good. I could manage a hundred husbands with grace and aplomb. I’m now on the look out for “she who has a hundred children” I could do with a dose or two of that!

    Love it – both the medicinal and spiritual uses look right up my alley. I take Vitex (chasteberry) everyday – will have to look into how they work together.

    So delighted it seems to be resonating with so many of you. I pushed it on another very willing friend in person today! May it bring you everything you are hoping for from it – peace, balance, energy and cycles which work for you xxx

    Oooh, thank you for posting! I am always on the lookout for a way to have a peaceful, easy moon time. I have a question – how often do you take it and how long until you felt it kick in? I know it says up to three times a day, but I’ve had trouble remembering to take herbs that often in the past.

    Hi Marla, I take two tablets once a day (mainly for money’s sake!!). It was less than a week that I really felt a difference. I got my period and realised I had not been cranky in any way, instead I felt good and yummy in my body and calm and very spiritually aware and I was like WOW. And then my bleeding was light-ish, whereas my previous period had been SOOOO heavy, as had the one before…

    Taking it alongside a good multi vitamin for lactating mamas, which I have taken many times in the past and not noticed any difference really with just the vitamin before.

    Hee hee! I love how you say that you could handle a hundred husbands with aplomb! I’ve heard about Shatavari for many years, perhaps I will try some.

    Hello dear wooman, nice to discover your page. Maybe you can offer some pointers for this: I have 17 yr old who gets excessive PMT and long periods. She has tried liquid agnus castus to no avail. Can you recommend anything?

    hello – I would recommend trying this Shatavari, evening primrose and getting your hands on the book The Pill, is it for you? The first half is about the pill’s effect on our bodies and the second half is about making our periods more “enjoyable”.
