Fertili-TEA - Fertility Boosting Tea
Fertility Boosting Tea By Dr. Jessica Bernardy
Enjoy this tea 3-4 times a day for the full medicinal effect. We’ve listed the latin names of the herbs in parenthesis in the recipe. This recipe is for a large batch, which will last you 3 days if you are drinking 3-4 cups a day. Just store in a glass jar in the fridge and reheat as needed. Pro tip: take a thermos with you to work, with your 3-4 cups, and drink throughout the day!

I am passionate about fertility work, I am passionate about creating healthy families, I am passionate about this tea!
I frequently work with people who want to improve their fertility naturally here in Hood River, White Salmon, the Gorge, and online. There's a lot that can be done naturally to work on fertility before resorting to costly and invasive measures. Start with this tea!
