Shepard’s purse

(Capsella bursa pastoris, fam. Cruciferae)

Above-ground part of the plant should be collected while it is still young as it is the most healing at that point.


Treatment with two to three cups of tea of shepard’s purse per day is successful in all types of bleeding, for instance, bleeding from nose, stomach, intestines, hemorrhoids, etc.

In longer and heavy menstrual bleeding or uterine hemorrhage, this plant may be used combined with yarrow, oak crust and nettle leaves.

Consume two cups of tea daily, mixed with equal amount of shepard’s purse and great horsetail for kidney hemorrhage.
