I don't know whether rose hip soup is period or not but my mother 
made it many years ago for us, and I don't know for sure where she 
got the recipe from, it could've been Eat the Weeds but what I can 
tell you is don't eat too much of it, it is very high in vitamin C, 
or it was the way she made it.

I don't know a really polite way to say it but I'll try this:  We all 
got to be best friends with the toilet.  :-)
