We all may have seen these 15–18 inches tall shrubs with its white, daisy-like flowers or came across them at one point or another. This perennial, which was common to Eastern Europe, has spread all across the world due to cultivation and its healing qualities.

Tanacetum or Chrysanthemum parthenium.
Also known as feverfew, bachelor’s buttons and featherfew.

It was already used centuries ago to treat all kinds of ailments such as reducing fever, relieving headaches, stomach aches and toothaches, but it also seems to be of great help with psoriasis, allergies, asthma, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, insect bites, menstrual problems, infertility, migraines, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Feverfew supplement can be bought in stores and comes in liquid, as well as tablet form and capsules, but the leaves can also be consumed fresh. In spite of its healing powers, there are some side-effects and cautions you need to heed.

When taking Feverfew occasionally by mouth or chewing the leaves, you can experience some mouth ulcers, swelling and irritation of the lips and tongue, and even a loss of taste, or nausea, digestive problems, and/or bloating.

When taking it for an extensive period of time, it is not recommended to quit all at once, since this may cause insomnia, headaches, joint pain, nervousness, and stiff muscles. Pregnant women should avoid taking it at all costs and so should people allergic to feverfew or any of the related plant families.

Scientifically there has no concrete or sufficient evidence been found yet pertaining to the working of Feverfew and you may want to try it and see if it has a positive effect on your condition, but since it can also interact with blood thinners and various other medications, ask your doctor first whether it is wise to take it, or not.

You will have to trust and follow his advice though and not venture out on your own; that can have the opposite effect and do more physical harm then good.

Don't venture out on your own when it comes to life and others, but trust God and following His advice and you can be assured that everything will turn out for the best!

Jeremiah 17:7-8
"Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit."
