Menopause and menstrual issues

Vitex (aka chaste berry) 200 to 400 mg per day. This herb acts on the hypothalamus to restore normal function of the HPA and its signaling to the ovaries. In this way vitex can deliver estrogen and progesterone balancing effects.

Flaxseeds or Flaxseed Oil

Substances called lignins in flaxseed are important modulators of hormone metabolism. Grind flaxseed fresh daily in a coffee grinder at home or purchase pregrinded and use in your smoothies using up 1 to 2 tablespoons a day.


Black cohosh (Cumicifuga racemosa).

One of the best-studied traditional herbs for menopause, black cohosh is used to help alleviate some symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes. Black cohosh seems to work by supporting and maintaining hormonal levels, which may lessen the severity of hot flashes. Many women report that the herb works well but it isn’t effective for everyone. While any therapy that influences hormonal actions should be a concern, black cohosh does not appear to have estrogenic activity and thus may be safe for women with a personal or family history of breast cancer.
