Dear Prity Thakur Muly
Fennel is one of the estrogenic foods. If you take it in higher amounts, it may increase the estrogen level in your body, and may cause hormonal imbalance. However, while trying to conceive if taken in small amounts, during the first half of the menstrual cycle., it does not harm. Once ovulation has occurred, high dose of this Herb may prevent implantation and can cause uterine contraction. Once, you have conceived, then you must not take it, as it may cause miscarriage. NOTE : High doses of fennel stimulate the uterus into contraction, causing blood loss and ultimately pregnancy loss.
If you have tried to conceive, and still not able to, we suggest that you should get your tests done. Once you are diagnosed, then only we'd be able to suggest. Regards

Fennel is one of the estrogenic foods. If you take it in higher amounts, it may increase the estrogen level in your body, and may cause hormonal imbalance. Prolonged and excessive intake may also cause -- Nervous disorders, even hallucinations. S May cause skin rashes, or allergy. Recommended dosage is 5 to 8 gm per day. Diabetic patients should not consume it. She should not take Fennel seeds anymore.

I am suffering from chronic IBS. Three years ago I changed my diet to follow the FODMAP, and have reduced my symptoms symptoms considerably and now enjoy much less pain in the day and night. However, I still suffer from bloating and wind which wakes me up in the night and I have been restricted to my FODMAP diet for nearly three years now and with no more improvement. Can you suggest a herbal recipe that I could take (may be a tea to drink) that could move me forward toward better stomach health and being able to eat a wider range of foods than I can at present please?
Looking forward to your suggestions :)

Dear Louise If you take peppermint tea twice a day. Your Ibs might be cured and then you would not need to depend on FODMAP diet. Take a small bowl of Yoghurt daily. Take a glass of buttermilk. Add a quarter spoon of turmeric powder to it. Salt and a pinch of roasted cumin powder. Drink it twice a day. This will improve the digestion and will cure Ibs. To get rid of bloating-
Steep one cup of fennel in a cup boiled water for 10 minutes. Strain it and sip it hot, like you take tea. You may have it twice a day for 15 days. For any queries, you may write back to us....

Hi I just got a colonoscopy done and I was informed that my intestines are black due over use of laxative(smooth move tea). I had chronic constipation so I have use this on and off for 5 years. The dr told me that my intestines were so bad that they would have to be removed the next 10 to 15 years.Do you have any suggestions on how to mend the intestines or what I should do for constipation.

Sarah We have studied the ingredient of the Tea you have mentioned and we have come to a conclusion that this discoloration of your intestines is due to herb called Senna. If you stop using the tea, it might get cured within 6 months. To read more about your condition, you may visit the disease Melanosis Coli in the disease section of this website.
And if you still are constipated, then you may take Triphala for a month. Stop taking this herb when you feel water. For any queries , you may always write back to us.

thanks for your reply,i like to inform u that i was in c- section.that time i had very little bleeding, after one month my bleeding started again and is break-through bleeding.i think is that estrogen made changes in my menstrual periods. as u describe in your one of the answer ( fennel is estrogenice food, it may increase the estrogen level in your body and may cause hormonal imbalance in your body) i got light abdominal pain as well as feeling small side effect of estrogen, like headache,fever, vaginal pain but not constantly. plz let me know is that serious.how do i know is because of estrogen?and my estrogen level is high or low??

Sameer.
Infact, Fennel is good for RbC and WBcs. You must be confusing it with Blood Pressure. Fennel is used to reduce the high blood pressure. I do not think it decreases White Blood Cells. It on the other hand, stimulates them and boosts the immune system.

I am eighteen and I have been having issues with my period. They just stopped. I got it when I was around 16 or 17 for a month through some tablets that my doctor prescribed. She says I have PCOS and it's not curable. The only way to get my periods again would be to control my weight but I'm not fat. I have a normal height and weight.
In thia scenario would thia seed help me out? And if it will then will there be any side effects?

(Could you also mention the quantity here? )

With thanks,
AnonymousMe.

It is not at all true that PCOS can not be cured. This disease is absolutely curable.
The hormonal imbalance is the major cause of PCOS. Did you get your hormonal tests done ? The best herbs for this disease are Saw Palmetto. You may eat one capsule every day for 20 days.
Another is Chaste Berry. This is a very very effective remedy to cure PCOS. And one glass of decoction of Fever nut herb for a week, every month will also help to get your periods on time.

Yes, I did and I think she said something about having more androgens and being born premature? Thank you so much for the help. Really, I feel relieved now that I know that there is a way to cure it.
(And um just to be sure, the tablets above... they wouldn't have a side effect, would they?)

For bleeding Piles, take Radish juice. This is the best cure for you. Drink 30 ml Radish juice, every morning for 3 days, then skip for a week. Continue again for next three days and then again skip. Buy, Kutki powder, take half teaspoon with warm water, after breakfast. Take for a week only. For Depression and Anxiety, it is advised that ou take Valeriana capsules, one every day for a month. For IBS and Uric acid, drink Green Leaf juice for 15 days. Also, visit the disease page IBS in the disease section of the website.

For the past 1 - 11/2 years, I have noticed that my skin is getting darker. I have very dry and sensitive skin and I frequently get rashes and eczema. Lately, after researching on the internet, I have started using oatmeal rice flour licorice powder for face packs. I have also added some licorice powder to my daily moisturizing cream. All of this is to try and make my skin to what it was originally - fair. I recently learnt that skin problems were symptoms of a weak liver. Is that true? If so, will fennel (saunf) help to make my liver stronger or are there any other remedies that you could advise me about. I am in desperate need of help. Please help. I would really appreciate your time and advice. Many thanks. You could reply me on my email address - jatinder.panesar@outlook.com
