Of all the questions I get asked about herbs, one of the most common is “Do you know of any herbs for losing weight?”
Answer: Chickweed 

Chickweed is a nutritional herb, containing loads of vitamins, minerals and even protein. It also contains saponins that help break down fat cells. Drinking at least 2 cups a day of Chickweed infusion is recommended for weight loss, but more is OK.

Those same chemicals also can help with infections and dissolving cysts; ovarian and breast. It is used for skin and eye infections as a poultice and as fresh tincture for cysts. A combination of Chickweed, Motherwort and Mugwort is used in Chinese medicine for many female reproductive system problems.
