How will I cure Asthma and High blood pressure with cassia.
Junoon Chakma

Boil the leaves adding little amount of salt and consume the leaves everyday, it reduces high blood pressure

Adding salt defeats the idea of reducing blood pressure as salt INCREASES BP.

Does this plant in anyway boost fertility in women. Because I just read the content of a herbal tabs, a fertility booster and it has this as it's major content.
Thank you.
03 May 2016
Dear Joy To boost fertility in women, Chasteberry, Maca and Caterpillar fungus are the most effective herbs.........
CHASTE BERRY- It aids in balancing the Hormones.
Take a cup of hot water. Add a spoon of fresh or dried Chaste Berries to it. Steep for 10 minutes. Then, strain it and drink this tea daily for 30 days.
However,, cassia Occidentalis is also known to boost the fertility, it is also used as an aphrodisiac. It is very good for men in 40s to maintain and prevent them from prostrate disease, and make them strong, even in sexual performance.

I just checked for this herb and found out the benefits. It's one of the components of a supplement i'm taking for Polycystic Ovaries & all that accompany it ie, hormone imbalance, annovulation, irregular menstruation etc. The other component is Trigonella Foenum-graecum(fenugeek). I just want to know if the combination of both is effective enough.
23 Aug 2016
Fenugreek- Soak few seeds in water overnight, straining it in the morning and drinking it.
And as such there is no data available on the combination of Fenugreek and Cassia Occidantalis. Your query has been forwarded to the concerned team. You will be informed if any information about the concerned combination is found.

Can cassia occidentalis be used for weight loss
28 Sep 2016
It is not Cassia Occidentalis. The herb that helps to reduce weight is Cassia Senna. Senna leaves tea. it is known to effectively support weight loss. Drink a cup of this tea daily for a week first. If it suits you, then you may continue with this Herb. Other herbs are---- Avocado, fennel and Horse gram.
You may eat one Avocado everyday. Horse Gram soup is very effective to reduce weight. You can check these herbs in the herb section.

Not to be taken, if you are suffering from Diarrhea. May induce an abortion in a pregnant woman. May cause nausea and IBS. So, the dosage should not be excessive. And should be used only to cure a particular condition, not like we use other herbs like Basil or Indian gooseberry.

I learned that cassia occidentalis can be used for family planning. Pls how true is this?
19 Sep 2019
Dear Aisha,

Cassia Occidentalis is not known to have any birth control effect.

We suggest you to not take any herb or medicine to control pregnancy. These might help but can create other side effects as Infertility or bad Reproductive health at the same time. This can cause you trouble later.

Also, We suggest you avoid the situation and follow natural ways to conceive.
Write to us if you have any other problem regarding conceiving.
