I have been drinking tea from dried leaves of Chanca Piedra for over three months now, almost every day 1 cup in the evening. My periods have been super-easy since that time (had three since then). Normally I would start cramping the week before, loose some drops of blood, be all moody and cranky, hating my husband and the whole world.
Now I only have slight chocolate attacks a few days ahead and a feeling in my tummy that the period is oncoming. Also the cramps during the period itself are less dramatic and the bloodflow is less long. It is like a waterfall the first two days (sorry for being graphic about this) but from the third day on it is only trickle.
It feels in all aspects more normal. Chanca Piedra is said to inhibit calcium oxalate crystallization and to break down already grown crystals, thus supporting the breakdown of forming stones in the liver and the kidneys. I have the experience that this effect is balancing the hormones and easing my period. I haev very beautifull facial skin too, I am a female of 37 but most of the time people think me in my late twenties (yeah!!) So that's cool too.
Next week I will do my first real flush, which I am sure will even more balance things
