Warning... this is another post about girl things. :)
I'm so amazed! Raspberry Leaf Tea is my new best friend. When I bought it a few weeks ago, I thought when I read the package describing the tea's "female benefits" that it would be really great if it actually worked. But honestly... I bought it because I thought Raspberry Leaf Tea would taste good. And it does! Which is the reason I've been drinking it quite a bit lately.
I was recently surprised by my first "on time" cycle for the first time since I've been plotting it- for 10 months now, since we've been married. This was a wonderful blessing, since having a one to two week late period every month can be a little... emotionally torturous.
Also, I was virtually cramp free. I've had awful back cramps for as long as I can remember- and I'm terribly allergic to painkillers. Every single one (even Tylenol, to the surprise of my doctor) I've ever tried has quickly ushered me into anaphylactic shock. Not a fun experience... so I have learned to just bear the aches and pains.
I didn't even remember that the Raspberry Leaf Tea was for this, until I was making a list for the grocery store and was adding tea to the list. I happened to re-read the box and I realized the only thing that was different this month than all others... I'd been drinking this tea. Wow! And don't worry... I'm not secretly being paid by the Tea manufacturer. But if you are having some of the same problems I had, give it a try! (And I don't drink massive amounts of this tea. Really more like one or two glasses every couple of days brewed medium strong.)
Here's the brand that I happened to buy, but I'm sure any organic brand would work just as fine.
