|What are the Health Benefits of Feverfew Leaves? |
Feverfew, or Tanacetum parthenium, finds mention in ancient Greek medicine as a cure for inflammation and menstrual problems, and the British traditionally used Feverfew leaves to treat fevers, rheumatic ailments and general bodyaches. Today, Feverfew leaves have widespread medicinal use in the form of dried leaves and extracts in capsules. Feverfew leaves can be chewed fresh to relieve migraine or brewed to make tea.
Parthenolide in Feverfew leaves is the main constituent that works on migraine, and the standard dosage for an adult is between 200 and 650 mg of freeze dried leaves in capsule form or an extract containing at least 250 mcg of parthenolide.
Feverfew does not cure acute migraine attacks since it takes between 4 to 6 weeks to work. However, patients in Britain report a distinct lessening of frequency and intensity of attacks during, and complete relief from symptoms after the period of medication. This is particularly significant since many patients cannot tolerate conventional painkilling medicine for migraine headaches.
Feverfew leaves can decrease the body's production of prostaglandins which cause inflammatory conditions. This is makes feverfew extracts useful for treating psoriasis and rheumatism. Feverfew also works as an anti-coagulant since it keeps blood platelets separated so that clots are not formed. Although this property makes it an alternative to aspirin, it also makes Feverfew unsuitable for patients about to undergo operations, those that suffer from hemophilia, or those on blood thinners.
Feverfew as a herbal medication has a history of being efficacious, but it is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women, or for children under the age of two.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 or 2 capsules a day with meals or a glass of water.
