Hormones are not the enemy - they are the directors and messengers of this monthly performance. However, they can have a powerful physical and emotional influence on us. They must have this power in order to fulfill their intended function.
I. Irregular and/or lack of menstruation
The stories of women who have used herbs for irregular periods are not very exciting. Usually, they take the herbs and the herbs work. Results may come within a single month or, depending on the situation, up to a year.
Dysmenorrhea is the occurrence of painful menstrual periods with cramping. Although mild cramps may be tolerated, they can be extremely painful and debilitating and that is intolerable. Herbs for dysmenorrhea tend to be antispasmodics and may also be helpful for ovarian, labor and after birth pain. Asthma, muscle tension, vascular headaches, bowel spasms, adult colic, and even hiccoughs often respond to antispasmodics.
Menorrhagia is heavy menstrual flow that may require hourly attention.
If menstrual flow becomes unexpectedly and uncharacteristically heavy, it is a good time to consult a doctor. Starting a new program of heavy dieting or exercise may produce menorrhagia, but so might infections, blood clotting problems, and uterine polyps or fibroids.
Menstrual Reg is a formula designed to help reduce heavy bleeding while balancing hormones and easing menstrual pain. It contains herbs that have a direct styptic or antihemorragic action, as well as herbs to balance hormones.
Yarrow, shepherd's purse, lady's mantle, and black haw all have a long history of helping to stop internal and external bleeding. As uterine tonics they may be expected to help tone and tighten weak tissues. Sarsaparilla, false unicorn, and chaste tree (vitex) are included to balance hormones. Nettle leaf is also nutritive and rich in iron.
