Red Clover: A Natural Solution for Hormonal Balance

Trifolium Pratense

Red clover has at least 400 years of empirical history where people used this herb to cure such diseases as cancer and those mentioned below. When Red Clover was introduced into America, it was quickly absorbed by the American Indian cultures who realized its medicinal uses internally and externally.

Three Leaves

Ancients called it Triphyllon, meaning “three leaves”. This term also relates to the common name, Clover, which stems from “clava”, meaning “three-leaved”. The three leaves were said to correspond to the triad goddesses of Mythology, and later to the Trinity in Christianity.

According to the Doctrine of Signatures, the white crescentic markings on the leaflets of red clover were seen as a sign that the plant could be of benefit in the treatment of cataracts. The three-lobed leaves were associated with the Holy Trinity by medieval Christians. Although red clover is a native European plant, it was not until it became naturalized in North America and the Native Americans discovered its medicinal properties that it was recognized as a medicine in Europe.
