A note about St John's Wort Methods of Use, Preparation and Dosages

Herbs are God and nature's gifts to us. While the use of herbs and herb remedies has brought excellent results for many people, do note that their health benefits may be limited when they are used in isolation. However, when combined with some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition, the impact on one's health will be greatly magnified.

In natural health and healing, we believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases. We also believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man’s understanding. It is thus a good idea to apply these fundamental health steps no matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem.

The parts used in preparation of St John's Wort tea, tinctures, and extracts are the tops of the herb and flowers.

St John's Wort Tea and Tincture

The flowers of St John's Wort are generally used in preparing the tea.

Add 1 to 2 cups of St John's Wort flowers to 1 cup of boiling water, simmer, strain and drink. The recommended St John's Wort dosage for tea is up to three times per day, while the recommended dosage for St John's Wort tincture is ¼ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon, up to three times daily.

St John's Wort Extract, Tables and Capsules

Another effective route of administering St John's Wort, especially as an antidepressant, is to take 300mg of St John's Wort extract with meals three times daily.

Persons also take up to 500mg of St John's Wort extract per day.

In the form of tablets or capsules, it contains 0.2% hypericin. Again, this should be taken close to mealtimes.

It is recommended that one examines St John's Wort's effectiveness after about 4 to 6 weeks before continuing with further consumption.
