This is about clover for breast enlargement, and about its hormonal properties for hormone balance.
Clover is a plant genus that goes by the scientific name of Trifolium. It belongs to the Fabaceae family, also known as the Leguminosae (legume) or pea family.
"Clover disease" is a common ailment of birds and livestock who consume excessive amounts of clover, causing reproductive problems, including reduced gonad size, and reduced fertility. Clover disease can even eventually cause sterility, and this is a concern for humans too.
Clover's negative effects are possibly due to ERβ desensitization. Hormones must be balanced.
Red Clover; Trifolium pratense
Red Clover (Trifolium pratense) is one of the most popular varieties of Clover used for hormonal issues. It is known as a rich source of phytohormones.
Trifolium for breast enhancement
While clover can cause breast enhancement during menses, it should be avoided for this phase, because it can contribute to heavy menstruation. Heavy menses, especially that is prolonged, is not sustainable for hormonal health.
Taking clover during proliferative phase or ovulation will cause shrinkage.
Clover requires the right companion herbs during secretory phase.
This herb should likely be avoided during premenstrual phase.
From the above ground parts of the clover plant, the leaf has a higher density of phytohormones, and the flower has the least. If clover is used, the lowest potency is desired.
Trifolium or herbs with similar properties are in the simplified herb program. The herb program of menses is needed for balance for this named phase. BCP01 is a composite page of pieces of different programs on birth control or IUD use.
Herb timing and combinations' success for breast enhancement relies on menstrual phases. Descriptions and pictures of results from herb combination use can be seen in programs.
Fenugreek is a suitable replacement for clover, because it also has progestogenic properties which offer more balance.
Milk thistle (Silybum) has similar properties to clover, and should likely be used together. Kudzu (Pueraria) has similiarities to clover. Silybum and Kudzu would be used in the herb schedule similarly to clover.
Because the effects of hops are less pronounced on ERβ which is primarily expressed in the reproductive tract, it is a good replacement for clover. Hops requires different companion herbs.
See precautions for more details of care to be taken with herb use. Proper nutrition is a consideration for health. Also, check for the latest blog updates about herb and hormone safety.
It is very important that menses be light and not prolonged.
If you have hirsutism, PCOS, hot-flashes, other signs of hormone imbalances, see estrogen-imbalance, and hirsutism program journals at hirusitism-topic before trying herbs.
Herb concentrates can be tens of times more potent by weight than herbs in solid form. This can easily lead to hormone imbalances. For this reason, concentrate extracts are not recommended for extended or excessive internal use, especially during fertility years. Concentrates shouldn't be used to overcome plateaus. Another issue with herbal extracts, is that they may not have the full range of properties of the herb. Essential oils are not recommended for breast enhancement. If opting to use herb extracts, use no more than 1 drop at a time diluted in a food-grade carrier oil (like unrefined olive oil), or water.
For the latest herb programs and how to get started, see: guide. Pictures of breast enhancement can be seen in the program journals of Anon09, Bubblemelon, Jellie and anon02.
