Shepherd's Purse (Capsellae Bursa Pastoris)
This is an ingredient needed for the DC formula but is in bulk form. Instead of trying to grind in a powder (which is difficult without specialized equipment) we suggest steeping in hot water (i.e., make a tea) and then add the liquid to the other herbs and drink.

The DC formula specifies 6 grams of this herb. One ounce is 28 grams. Basically you just need a very small amount to make a daily tea - maybe a quarter teaspoon.

If you want to try and make a powder our East Earth Trade Winds herbalist said that you can use a grain mill (used to grind wheat berries into flour), coffee grinder, or a blender. If using a coffee grinder or blender grind only small amounts at a time. You'll have to turn the blender on to high speed and grind for a couple minutes, however, it is difficult to make a good powder with this herb. After you turn the blender off the particles will be smaller but you'll need to use a fine mesh kitchen strainer to sift the powder out. Try to find the smallest possible screen to do the sifting. Once again, we think the best way is to steep it as a tea, strain, and add the liquid to the other herbs.

According to Western medicine Shepherd's purse is used internally to stop bleeding, especially for heavy menstruation, nosebleeds, hemorrhoids, blood in urine and wounds. The Shepherd's Purse we offer is sourced from Croatia and is certified organic.


Size: One ounce (bulk herb)


Note: The Diab etes Cure formula states that Shepherd's Purse is a Chinese herb, however, according to our East Earth Trade Winds herbalist it has been difficult to identify. There are several Chinese names for this herb listed in obscure books. For example, Chi Ts'ai, ti-mi ts'ai, ji cai, hu sheng cai, ji xin cai, jing chang cai, di ai, xiang ji and qing ming cao are all listed as names for this herb, however, neither the botanical name (Capsellae Bursa Pastoris) nor the Chinese names mentioned are listed in the most authoritative herb books that we have. However, we found the Sanjiu brand of herbs that we carry does offer Capsellae. The Chinese name is Ji Cai which is the pinyin spelling of "Chi Ts'ai which we listed above. So if you don't want to make a tea of the Shepherd's Purse just order the Sanjiu packet of Capsellae as an alternative.


Countraindications:  Not be used by pregnant women. People having a history of kidney stones ought to use this herb with caution.


Note: The efficacy of this product has not been confirmed by research. Traditional use does not establish that the product will achieve the claimed results.
