hi,
i'm a female and i'm 28.
i wondered if it is possible to heal hormonal imbalance wth herbs or another naturopathic method.
i did my best to mess up things in my body.the final result is a hormonal imbalance.bad PMS and an exhausted immune system make me suffer the most,i tend to retain water,before my menstrual cycle(i lived without it for years),feel depressive and heavy and so on.
i've been treated with some awful hormonal pills in the past(doctors tried to stimulate the cycle)and i've suffered the side effects.i wouldn't like to experience this again,that's why i'm asking for help.
thanks in advance!

Here are some herbal remedies for PMS

Black cohosh. This is an antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory that eases cramps in the back, legs and abdomen. You can take three to four droppersful of the tincture morning and evening as you need it. This herb is also used for PMS-related depression, which can be caused by high levels of progesterone. However, avoid this herb if you are pregnant or if you are having heavy periods because it can increase your flow.

Cramp bark. As the name suggests, this helps with cramps. It's a muscle relaxer and mild tranquilizer. You can use one teaspoon of tincture, three times a day, as needed.

Vitex (also known as Chasteberry). This herb stimulates the production of progesterone to help with breast tenderness, mood swings, food cravings, pimples, and constipation. Take 20-30 drops of the tincture every morning. It will probably take several weeks to see results. Don't use Vitex if you're taking estrogen or have PMS-related depression.

Red raspberry leaf. Tea made from this herb is a great uterine toner. It's good for cramps, too, as it relieves muscle spasms. You can drink a cup of this every day. It tastes great mixed with peppermint and sweetened with a little honey.

Dandelion. Very good for bloating. This herb reduces water retention, but it doesn't flush out needed minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Take one dropperful of the tincture twice a day, as long as you feel bloated.

Dong quai (Angelica sinensis). This is a well-known Chinese herb for PMS. It's a good hormone balancer, and it also helps with cramps, since it's a natural sedative. You can take three to five milliliters of the tincture three times a day during the second half of your cycle. Don't use this if your flow is heavy, as it can increase it. Also it can cause photosensitivity, so be careful about going out in the sun if you use it.

Valerian. This sedative herb relaxes muscles and reduces anxiety and moodiness. Take two milliliters of the tincture, three times a day.

Natural progesterone cream can help with PMS, too. Be sure to use natural progesterone cream, though. It's made from wild yam and soybeans. Synthetic progesterone has side effects that can make PMS worse.

Hope this is helpful for you! :-)

thank you so much!



i'll try the red raspberry tea and the dandelion tincture first.



i've included non GMO soya in my diet recently and i've been watching my PMS decreasing.it's probably as you said due to the high progesterone contents in those beans.



thanks once again!
