Natural Herbs that Balance Hormones

There are natural changes that occur in a woman’s body that affect hormone balance.  These changes are affected by menses, reproduction and menopause.  The ebb and flow of estrogen and progesterone can cause hormonal imbalance.  Doctors often prescribe synthetic drugs to battle the war on hormonal imbalance, but more and more women opt for a natural remedy.  Herbs, vitamins and supplements are available to assist with the movement through hormonal stages and ups and downs.

Back to Balance Through the Use of Herbs

When hormones become imbalanced you become imbalanced.  Herbs can be used to regulate the body’s endocrine system by stimulating the production of chemicals needed to regulate body temperature or metabolize food intake.  Below are some of the leading herbs used to regulate and balance hormone levels in the body.

Asian Ginseng

The ancient traditions of Chinese medicine have proved successful when dealing with hormonal imbalance.  Taking at least 150 mg of Asian ginseng helps to regulate adrenal gland.  The adrenal gland produces stress hormone and if working improperly can cause agitation, irritability and a compromised immune system.  Asian ginseng regulates the production of stress hormone.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Consuming fish oil capsules or foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids is one of the best natural ways to balance hormones.  Omega-3 fatty acids are essential in the creation of cell membranes causing hormones to move more efficiently through the system.  These fatty acids are also known to repair the receptor sites found on hormones. 

Rhodiola Rosea

In hundreds of studies, Rhodiola has shown to increase the function of the thyroid and make it operate at a more efficient rate.  This natural herb helps the body combat stress, improve strength, elevate the mood and reduce fatigue that can be caused by stress

Rosemary

A dash of rosemary to your food does more than just season the dish.  While complementing chicken and casseroles, rosemary also acts as an antioxidant.  Rosemary increases the body’s thyroid hormone to work in the cells’ nuclei. 

Dong Quai

Another Chinese herb used in the natural treatment of hormonal imbalance is dong quai.  Women who suffer from heavy periods and hot flashes benefit from this herb because of its estrogen level regulation properties.  Balancing the estrogen levels can even out a woman’s temperament and reduce anxiety or other symptoms associate with pre-menstruation.
