Weight Reduction
The following formula contains herbs with diuretic, laxative and alterative properties, the combined action of which appears to produce weight loss in many cases:
4 parts Chickweed herb
1 part Cinnamon bark
4 parts Cleavers herb
6 parts Dandelion root
4 parts Fennel seed
1 part Vervain leaves
Infusion: 3 cups daily, before meals

While the use of herbs may help with weight reduction, it should be noted that the most successful and lasting approach to weight loss is based on fairly frequent (i.e. at least 3 or 4 times a week) aerobic exercise and a well-balanced diet. Dieting and inactivity, because of their metabolic consequences, tend ultimately only to compound the problem, and there seems little sense in eagerly pursuing any form of treatment while at the same time ignoring the body's natural function of movement and activity.
