Treatment with the Jamaican ‘dog blood’ bush

Dear Jamaica Herbalist,
How should the dog blood bush be taken (meaning how often and the portion)? How soon after drinking the dog blood bush should one expects her period/menstruation? Does having this period signifies that the bush is working?


Hi Rasheda,
You may take a cup of the dog blood bush per day for at least one month. However for your specific problem, you need to drink a cup starting 3 days before your period is due. Then take it for 7 consecutive days. If you were feeling cramps at any time, combine the ‘vervine bush’ with the ‘dog blood’ bush.

The ‘vervine’ bush is usually taken for cramps among other ailments.

Bless UP!

  11. Sasha,
    Thanks for writing in. Its never wise to take herbs while you are pregnant without proper guidance from the herbalist. The drink has to be very very diluted.
    All the best

  15. How long after the dog blood and shame o macka works

  16. Dee

    Hi there,
    Do I need to boil the little red looking berries on the dog blood bush along with the leaves or just the leaves?
    Also, my period has already started is it okay to drink the bush now and for how long ??? This is to clear blocked tubes?
    To add to that I read on another site that: Vervain, Shame-O-Macka, Medina, Penny Royal, Rice Weed and Devil’s horse whip should all be boiled as a tea to correct any problems with infertility. And that the tuna plant should be drank once per day in addition to this treatment. Is this true.
    I have all the bushes with the exception of the devil’s horse whip. Are they safe to combine?
    Thanks in advance

    I’m trying to get pregnant and I’m on my period. When should I start taking the dig blood and how often.

  18. How many days are you supposed to drink the dog blood bush? Suppose your period come before the 7 day should you continue?
