Herbs for menopausal women

Menopause is a period of change and transformation, just like puberty. It consists of three stages: isolation, frustration and discovery. Each stage requires a new strength and new understanding of ourselves. Each stage has specific requirements, special assignments and special needs.


Scary facts about menopause:

Menopause is not a recent phenomenon, but the mystery of ancient women, with special gifts for women who use their power wisely.

Estrogen is a hormone, but many, and our bodies continue to produce estrogen throughout life. Adipose tissue, and possibly the uterus, estrogen products.

Herbal hormone (phytosterols, or phytoestrogens) are useful organism, unlike prescription hormones protect against breast cancer.

Hormone levels in the blood of most women in menopause.

Favorite herbs for menopausal women:

Extract of oat (Avena sativa) strengthens the nerves, helps in reducing mental anxiety, promotes sound sleep, maintains bone strength and heart, boosts libido. Tincture acts as a strong sedative. Mixed grain porridge is a great way to bring these plants into the body, but avoid pills and capsules. Oat baths are very calming.

Nettle Extract (Urtica dioica) strengthens blood vessels, reduces tension, increases energy, helps prevent night sweats, strengthens blood count, protects bones and heart. Eating cooked nettle is another great way to take advantage of its strengths, and the use of nettle vinegar. It is desirable to avoid frozen, dried, in capsules, tinctures, or nettles, since all these forms ineffective and overpriced.

Tincture of fresh thyme buds (Leonorus cardiaca) is a favorite in menopausal women, their daughters and their mothers. A few drops (up to 25 at once) Smiƙice mental unrest, facilitate palpitations (and strengthen the heart), moderate intensity of hot flashes, increase vaginal lubrication, change and eliminate PMS and menstrual cramps. Vinegar of thyme is a fantastic tool to enhance and, thank God, is delicious! Tea is terribly bitter and does not like it 99 out of 100 women.

Any form, any part of the dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is perfect for trimming the liver, the control center for hot flashes. Dandelion improves digestion, especially calcium, facilitates the treatment of headaches and helps the liver function in ensuring constant supplies of blood sugar. Wine of the dandelion flower is the most elegant way of taking this drug, but the boiled leaves and vinegar (and pickled parts of the plant) of roots and / or leaves are also highly nutritious means to facilitate digestion. Tincture, especially the roots, is considered the most powerful drug, but does not contain the nutrients that build bone, so that means worse than other forms.
