Homeopathic Cat Fertility Research
(Alan Brown – February 2011)

Red Clover Blossom: Antispasmodic, diuretic, expectorant, sedative, helps with acne, asthma,
bronchitis, regulates cholesterol levels, colds, coughs, digestion, eczema, flatulence, heals infections,
lymphatic swelling, prostate health, skin eruptions and sore throats. Red Clover Blossom is also a natural
phytoestrogen. Red clover is one of the most popular fertility remedies. High in vitamins, calcium, and
magnesium, red clover helps to nourish the uterus and relax the nervous system, enabling conception. It
is taken as a tea, daily

Raspberry Leaf: Raspberry leaf is high in calcium and therefore works to restore hormonal balance. It is
excellent when taken alongside red clover. Raspberry leaves have an astringent (drying up) effect due to
their tannin content which helps to tone tissues. It is this property which makes raspberry leaves useful as
an herbal remedy in treating diarrhea and in helping check hemorrhage during and after kittening.
Raspberry leaf is also known as parturient. Herbs included in this category will help ease the process of
parturition (birth) by toning the smooth muscle of the uterus. This assists the birth process by improving
the strength and quality of the muscular contractions. One of the other properties of Raspberry leaf is
that of being classified as emmenagogue. Emmenagogues are herbs which stimulate blood flow in the
pelvic area and uterus. Herbs in this category act on the female reproductive system and help to restore
a state of balance to the system. This applies especially in relation to the bleeding that occurs during
estrus. In helping to restore balance to the female reproductive system, raspberry leaves act as general
tonic and can help ease the symptoms of false pregnancy. Raspberry Leaf also helps with milk
production in cats.

Lady’s Mantle: This herb assists in building up the uterine lining and regulating menstruation. It is meant
to be drunk as a tincture, once a day. Lady's Mantle tea is said to be helpful for excessive menstruation.
The juice of Lady’s Mantle is an astringent and can be used to treat acne and close open pores. An
infusion of Lady’s Mantle can be used to stimulate the appetite and ease diarrhea. A decoction helps
staunch bleeding. It was traditionally used for ‘women’s complaints’ and also helps heal wounds and
sores.

Licorice: Licorice is used in an herbal form called Shakuyaku-kanzo-to to increase fertility in women with
a hormonal disorder called polycystic ovary syndrome. Licorice is used along with the herbs Panax
ginseng and Bupleurum falcatum to improve the function of the adrenal glands, the adrenal glands
produce important hormones that regulate the body’s response to stress. The licorice is natural cortisone
and it will help to jumpstart the immune system. It also soothes mucous membranes. Do not take
Licorice for more than 4 weeks. You may want to add potassium to the diet while taking Licorice.

Chaste Tree Berry: Greek physician Dioscorides recommended chaste tree berry specifically for
inflammation of the womb and to encourage milk flow shortly after birth. Today, herbalists use chaste tree
berry primarily to support the health of the female reproductive system, such as helping to reduce the
symptoms of PMS. Chaste Tree Berry causes the pituitary gland to produce luteinizing hormone. This
increases progesterone production and helps regulate a woman’s cycle. Chaste Tree Berry also keeps
prolactin secretion in check. The ability to decrease mildly elevated prolactin levels may benefit some
infertile queens.

Black Cohosh: Native Americans used the roots and rhizomes for a variety of ailments, including
menstrual cramps and pain associated with labor and delivery. Eclectic physicians in the U.S. during the
1800s used black cohosh to treat uterine difficulties, stimulate menstrual flow, and reduce discomforts
