Whole Woman’s Health: Herbal Tea for Holistic Healing


Patients often ask us how best to soothe the cramps that may come either during or after their procedure, or as a result of a heavy period. Whole Woman’s Health has been dedicated to assisting women with their reproductive health in a holistic, natural way since it opened in 2003. Since then, we’ve incorporated many practices that do just that every step of the way, from our recovery rooms, to the care she receives on our EmpowerLine, and additionally by providing materials and tips that she can take home with her. Our TranquiliTEA is just another one of those things.

Whole Woman’s Health tea is made of Sassafras, Hibiscus Flower and Honeybush Leaf for a reason! As you may know, our goal is to care for women – mind, body and heart – and we especially created our tea to do just that. Here’s a bit more information on what our tea is made of:

Sassafras – A common root that was originally used to make root beer, sassafras is known as an emmenagogue, which means that it can provoke and ease menstruation. Drinking sassafras tea can also help to relieve cramps.

Hibiscus Flower – African Folk Medicine commonly used Hibiscus flower to relax the uterus, which is exactly what you need to be doing if you’re experiencing cramps. Regular consumption can also help lower blood pressure!

Honeybush Leaf – Honeybush tea is often consumed to relieve stress, but it has another positive side effect of regulating periods and reducing the risk of breast and uterine cancer. 

In order for the long-lasting effects of tea to take place, you probably need to drink at least a few cups a day. However, with our new tea tins, patients will have at least 3-4 cups of looseleaf tea on hand to ease them through their cramps and relieve a bit of stress in the days following their appointments. Let us know if you have any questions, or would like to order a sample and we’d be happy to send some out!
