Raspberry Leaf Tea: Nature’s Miracle Worker Series
If you are suffering from severe or mild PMS, please read this article. I am going to tell you about a cure, that „changed my life”. It could change yours, too.
PMS is one hell of a curse. I always joke, that it’s nature’s revenge against women for not having a child. The pain of course varies from woman to woman, but generally it SUCKS. Now, let’s talk about the most obvious and worst part of it all. I mean, there are a lot of aspects that are horrible:
- mood swings,
- sadness (ugh.. I can’t watch a comedy movie, without bursting into tears for apparently no reason whatsoever),
- increased hunger (I could literally eat every chocolate on Planet Earth, when I’m on my period. It’s absolutely crazy.),
- bad skin,
- bloating…(Don’t you just hate it, when near menstruating your body blows up like a balloon? Or is is just me? It’s like I gain 10 pounds overnight…)
- nausea (glorious story ahead…)
All of these are BAD.
But even all of them combined are not as bad as cramps.
Menstrual cramps are my personal demons. They completely ruin my life for 24-48 hours. I can’t eat, think, walk, or do anything. Even though my uterus area is the one that hurts, but it’s in the worst possible location. In your core. And when your core is not “functional”, you are doomed. And I have been doomed for the last 2 years. Well, at least not since I’ve been drinking raspberry leaf tea, but we’ll get to that in a second.

My menstruation has always been awful. Especially in the last 2 or so years, I was totally not functional for 24-48 hours every month. One thing was good, that it was always on time, and I was very happy because of that. The pain was horrible, but at least I felt like it’s fine until it’s on time and regular. In June though, the pain and suffering levels reached whole new levels. It was a Monday morning. My menstruation started the night before, so I was a little positive that I got off easy, and would survive work.
It started hurting a bit, but I didn’t care. By the time I got to my workplace I was still okay. 2 hours passed, when it all went to hell. Oh, boy. I was suffering. Headache, shivering, cramps, fever, unbearable nausea. I couldn’t stay still, because I felt like I was going to die. I walked, I sat down, I crouched. (Good thing at that intervallum, I was alone at my workplace…)
Nothing helped. I rushed into the toilet every 2 minutes to throw up („This is it! It’s finally coming out!”) but I couldn’t. Until, finally, the postman came into the office. As sson as I watched him coming from afar, I knew, that finally the sweet relief was there. I think it was the social anxiety, that I had to deal with a person while looking and feeling like sh#t.
As soon as he stepped in, I could literally feel all of the blood in my head just vanished. I could see the genuine fear in his eyes, when he asked me if I was alright. I looked at him calmly, said „Nope.” and sprinted to the bathroom, to puke my heart out. And that I did. While poor fella, was just listening to the whole ordeal. Man, it sucks to be a woman sometimes.
After that my boss took me home, and I was in bed after the next morning. It was absolutely abismal. I never felt so bad in my life.
Nothing helped. No painkillers, no hot water, no nothing. I don’t think I have to tell you, how much anxiety I was having before the next month’ „time”. But, this time it was different.
I was prepared.
I searched the internet up and down, read forums, blogs, everything. One thing I found that everyone seemed to praise, was raspberry leaf tea. Now, I remember from when I was younger my grandma always told me to eat raspberries, because they help with lady problems.
I was really desperate, so even though I actually felt, that “What? A herb tea is going to help me, when pain killers couldn’t?? Yeah right.”, I went on Amazon, and I ordered it right away.
I am so glad I did.
My experience with Raspberry Leaf Tea
I read that you are supposed to start drinking it a few days before your mensies, so 2 days before „the big day” I made myself a cup. That night it started. My perfectly on time period, came 2 days early.
That’s when I knew it was going to work. For the next 24 hours, I was waiting and looking out for the gut wrenching pain waves, but nothing. Nothing ever came. 3 days passed and I was absolutely amazed. Could it be? Could it be, that a simple herb tea that I bought for a few dollars could help cure my horrible PMS?
I mean it was crazy. I really didn’t understand how it was possible. I was expecting it to work a little, but not like this. I was fresh as a daisy and I actually had a very productive 48 hours. Thanks to the lack of cramps, I did not have any nausea or bad mood either.
So, yes. It is possible. And after thinking about it, I realized why. Because it’s nature’s power and…
Mother Nature is very smart. She knows that you have problems and she offers solution to them.
You just have to look in the right place.
I geniunely believe that it will help you too. Because I’ve witnessed it first hand.
Also, as a positive “side effect” you can use the infusion, to reduce your dermatitis.
So, here is a little summary:

How much raspberry leaf tea should I drink per day?
The general rule is that you should start drinking it 1-2 days before day 1 (but be prepared that it could make your period early). The recomennded amount is max. 3 cups a day. I’ve found that 2 cups does the job.
How can I consume the raspberry leaf tea?
There are 3 main ways of making herbal teas:
- Infusion: Put the leaves into a cup and pour boiling hot water on it. Cover it, then leave it to soak for 10-15 minutes. Take out the leaves and enjoy.
- Decoction: Put the leaves into a pot with water, then bring to boil, and cook for 4-5 minutes. Replace the evaporated water during cooking. Immediately take out the leaves after cooking is done.
- Cold water extract: Put the leaves into a bowl, and pour room temperature water on it. Cover the bowl, then leave it to soak for 5-10 hours. Take out the leaves and enjoy.

Love rasp tea ! Life saver for endo ! Vit e oil also helps with pain and short flows 🙂
Yep! Raspberry tea is the best. 🙂 Thank you for the suggestion, I’m going to try Vitamin E oil!
OMG what you described is EXACTLY what happened to me last month. Extreme pain, nausea/vomiting, shivering, dizziness. It was the worst cramps I’ve ever had in my life. I’ve had 3 children and the pain was comparable to labor pain. I’m going to definitely try to the tea. I can not go though that again. Thank you for the info!
I’m really sorry you went through that! Although the tea most definitely helps with cramps, make sure to go to your GP, because these symptoms can be a result of something else.
I wish you good health!
I was looking for a way to rush my period away quicker because it could NOT have come at a worse time. My boyfriend was leaving for three months and we wanted to have one last night of “celebration” before he left. Well, Mother Nature threw a wrench into our plans. I’ve been drinking raspberry tea since it started and a normally very heavy flow is now calmed down and not so bad. He leaves tomorrow, as I’m writing this, so I’m hoping it goes away quickly. It made this time more bearable at least. Definitely recommend!
I’m really glad it helped you, Hannah! Raspberry Leaf Tea is my go to every month. It works better, than pills.
