Hormones, hormones, hormones. Everyone is looking for PCOS treatments, fibroids treatments, and other hormonal conditions aids these days.
In this day and age, more women have to use in-vitro fertilization to get pregnant than ever before…
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a relatively new documented syndrome and continuously on the rise…hormones pcos estrogen dominance
Uterine Fibroids are noncancerous tumors that can cause debilitating symptoms and the only 100% current effective treatment is to undergo surgery (a hysterectomy). It’s the second most common operation on women in their reproductive years, just after c-sections.
Something is wrong.
And something has to change.
The following Botanicals have been proven to help women achieve hormonal balances. I wouldn’t get ahead of myself to say they are PCOS treatments, but some of them can help detox your organism. Others can help balance hormones out. And some can protect your organs. God has made these available to us, and He puts them at our disposal for a reason. In a world where everything -and I mean EVERYTHING- has a potential to wreck our hormones havoc, we need all the help we can get to just iron things out. And these botanicals can positively affect your health in more than one way. Do speak with your doctor or naturopath before trying any of these.

1. Milk Thistle Seed

milk thistle seed hormoneMilk thistle is your liver friendly botanical. Its seeds are the easiest way to get a right amount of it. It’s known for its liver protective properties. Not only does it protect the liver, but it can also rejuvenate it! So even if your liver has been damaged (too much alcohol, drugs, meds, toxic food), you can still get a second chance with this seed’s herb. How awesome is that!

Milk thistle belongs to a category of herbs that are called adaptogens. These herbs can help balance hormone levels.

The active compound in Milk Thistle seed is silymarin. Silymarin is an antioxidant that decreases the production of free radical and the damage it does to the cells of your body.

2. Holy Basil (AKA Tulsi)

Holy Basil belongs to a category of herbs we call natural adaptogen. An adaptogen is a substance that has the power to regulate or balance your hormones. What’s impressive about this herb is that it acts on the stress response pathway of your body and helps control cortisol. Cortisol is usually produced

when stress occurs: this applies to both physical and mental stress. Certain food types also elevate your cortisol levels. Cortisol in itself isn’t bad: it’s a hormone your body needs as it increases the concentration of glucose in the blood to make more energy available to the muscles. So when you’re running to catch the train, or jogging, cortisol helps you get you through that physical stress.
In good amount in your blood, cortisol is a good thing. The problem is that, in this society, most of us have way too much of it, because of the daily stress we face every day.
Fortunately, Holy Basil can balance things out for us. It’s just what it does. Isn’t God amazing for creating all-natural, safe and fantastic adaptogens!

3. Flax Seed

Here are just a few of the ways flax offers such strong support to the body:

  • Healthy skin and nails from nutritious essential fatty acids.
  • Promoting a healthy body weight from nourishing ALA and fiber.
  • Age-fighting antioxidants that studies show may also help support your body’s ability to maintain a healthy balance of good gut bacteria.

How about adding some flax to your regimen?

 

4. Maca Root

Maca is a traditional food and vitality tonic from South America, natively from Peru. It is renownedmaca root hormone balance as both a healthy superfood (it’s a cruciferous vegetable like broccoli, cabbage, and kale) and a potent source of energy, stamina, and reproductive health in Peru. Its reputation is solid, as Peruvians have used this superfood for centuries.

By the way: did you know that Maca root is fantastic for sexual health?

I know, added bonus, right!!!

It works by enhancing energy levels and stamina, for both men and women so all can benefit from this remarkable root. Get some Maca roots in your life….now! 🙂

5. Winter Cherry (AKA Ashwagandha)

Winter Cherry is another powerful adaptogen.

Originating from the Fwinter cherry hormonal issuear East, Winter Cherry has been part of traditional Ayurvedic Indian medicine for centuries. But the reason why it’s so amazing isn’t the herb itself. It’s the way our bodies interact with it.

Dozens of studies have focused on how Ashwagandha works hand in hand with our bodies to restore natural balance; how it cooperates with each person’s unique physiology to make changes where they are necessary. It’s divine intervention in a cherry!

That means Ashwagandha doesn’t just recklessly raise or reduce one hormone just like that. It works with each person’s hormonal excesses or shortcomings and helps the body know exactly how to restore harmony on its own.

With that in mind, it’s no wonder why the benefits of Ashwagandha are so numerous on the hormonal spectrum.

It can help people with chronic adrenal problems, regulate thyroid hormones, decrease anxiety, reduce cortisol levels and support mental health.

Last but not least, a 2015 study also found that Ashwagandha extracts are fantastic supporters of female sexual health: improving vaginal lubrication, the likelihood of orgasm, arousal, and more.
Say what?
Yup, all that in a botanical herb.
100% natural.

Have you ever tried one of these? Do you have other ones in mind?

Please share with us!

  • To answer one of your questions, I have used flax seed in the past and I honestly have nothing negative to say about it.
    Recently I’ve been looking into Ashwaganda, not for PCOS, but for my thyroid hormones. And I’m so glad I found more information about it here. I like that it works specifically for each person’s body and helps to naturally regulate balance as needed. That means it would only do what my body needs and no more. I really like that.
    And of course the other benefits you mentioned are major bonuses too! 🙂

    • Absolutely Yemi 🙂 It can be used for so many ailments, not only PCOS!

      Try it (with your doctor’s approval for your thyroid issues) and let us know how it works for you!

      Be blessed,

      Didi

  • I’ve tried the Ashwaghanda before for my thyroid and I didn’t see any results. Is there a brand that you recommend? Do you think that some brands have more potency than others?
    These botanicals aren’t ones that I typically eat. I’m wondering if there is a reason for that. Do you know if they are safe to eat? I almost never hear of people eating milk thistle.

    • Hi dear, 

      I’m saddened to hear Ashwaghanda didn’t work for you. I know it has done amazing things for me! I hope your thyroid issues are controlled and followed by a doctor or naturopath. 

      I do believe the origin of Ashwaghanda, its biological state and preservation methods are some of the aspects that can influence the potency of it. The brand I recommend can be found further up in this very post (affiliate link warning)

      I personally believe that, if one herb or botanical can be consume in a certain way, it can definitely be consumed in others. For example, I know some people love to make milk thistle tea. Again, I would try to find the most organic, reliable source. 

      I hope this helps!

      Stay blessed,

      Didi
