Get to know the plants:
Vitex: has a stimulating effect on the pituitary gland, which regulates and normalizes hormone production. Vitex increases the production of luteinizing hormones, enhancing the progesterone cycle and often lengthening a short luteal phase (an indicator of poor fertility). This plant also helps to inhibit the release of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), normalizing the estrogen cycle. An overall excellent herb for promoting more estrogen/progesterone balance. Excellent for PMS/PMDD, menopausal symptoms, painful periods, endometriosis.
Wild Yam: considered a progesterone-producing herb, wild yam is in many progesterone creams and supplements all over the world. Wild yam not only encourages better progesterone levels, it helps to regulate the ratio of estrogen to progesterone in the system. Used for menstrual irregularity, painful periods, miscarriage, infertility, menopause, and endometriosis. This plant is unique in that along with its affinity for the female reproductive system it is also widely used as a liver tonic. Most hormonal imbalances are due in part to a poorly functioning liver, so this plant works on both systems.
Yarrow: This plant is often used post childbirth to prevent hemorrhaging, and is extremely healing for wounds. Yarrow has both a stimulating and sedative action on the uterine muscles, making it a great herb for stimulating absent or delayed menstruation, as well as easing menstrual cramps and uterine tension.
Dong Quai: often referred to as the "female ginseng", due to its tonifying and strengthening action on the female system. This plant has a positive action on the liver and endocrine system, and therefore indirectly helps encourage hormonal balance. Dong quai nourishes the blood, cleanses the liver, and has mild nervine properties that provide a sense of calm to an overworked system.
Shatavari: an incredible Ayurvedic herb that is referred to as Rasayana, whole-body tonic. Shatavari is an adaptogenic plant that belongs to the asparagus family, and is used for increasing libido, normalizing hormone production, and rejuvenating the female reproductive system and body as a whole.
