PARSLEY is rich in minerals, vitamins and iron and so is a good herbal nutritional supplement. It is also a good, mildly warming diuretic which can be used in many conditions of chill and weakness where most other diuretics would be contraindicated. It is an effective emmenagogue that promotes menstruation, relieves premenstrual cramping and headaches, and dispels premenstrual water retention from the abdomen, the legs and the breast. It also helps dispel kidney and gall stones. Yet owing to its heating energy, it should be used with care when there is much inflammation or irritation of the kidneys. For such conditions it can be balanced out by combining it with marshmallow. It is good for high Kapha and obstructed vata.

The fresh juice (2 teaspoons) may be taken daily to strengthen the kidneys and the uterus. Parsley is similar in action to, but milder than, juniper berries.
