Damiana is an aphrodisiac and promotes sexual stimulation. It is said to have compounds with effects similar to that of progesterone. Over 150 herbs were tested with their ability to bind to estrogen and progesterone receptors in breast cancer cells and found that Damiana was among the 6 highest progesterone-binding herbs and spices. Damiana is used for asthma, anxiety, depression, headaches/migraines, and menstrual disorders, along with increasing energy and reversing impotence. Damiana will also increase oxygen supply and stimulates the intestinal tract.
Feverfew is believed to help migraine sufferers because of the unique plant chemical it contains, parthenolide, which helps relieve smooth muscle spasms and can combat the widening of blood vessels that occurs in migraines. This effect appears to be backed up by research which shows that Feverfew can reduce the frequency of migraines and reduce symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light (flashing lights). According to herbmed.org: "It is the combination of ingredients in the Feverfew plant that brings such effective relief. It works to inhibit the release of two inflammatory substances, serotonin and prostaglandins, both believed to contribute to the onset of migraines."
"By inhibiting these amines as well as the production of the chemical histamine, the herb controls inflammation that constricts the blood vessels in the head, and prevents blood vessel spasms which may contribute to headaches".
One particular study in the UK took a survey of 270 migraine sufferers and found that more than 70% of them felt significantly better after taking an average of 2 to 3 fresh Feverfew leaves daily. Several human studies have used this herb to prevent and treat migraines although overall, these studies suggest that Feverfew is best used as an aid to preventing migraines.”
Feverfew also helps relieve symptoms of arthritis, easing menstrual cramps, alleviates stress and anxiety, helps skin and irritation, and provides relief from asthma and coughing .
