Herbal Menopausal Support

In the western culture this word fills most women with dread as it’s seen as a terrible thing that happens to women of a certain age, but not all cultures view it this way.

In fact, in many cultures around the world view the menopause as a time when women step into their new role as wise, strong elders of the community. Respected for their wisdom and often stepping into positions of power and authority as spiritual leaders.

It’s a time to take stock of what what has been learnt, slow down and soak up some peace. You’ve earned it! Many of the symptoms that women can suffer from during menopause are increased due to stress. As the ovaries produce less oestrogen the adrenal glands take over but they are unable to produce as much oestrogen as the ovaries did.

To help lessen the severity of menopausal symptoms we can try to reduce stress to take the pressure off our adrenal glands, we can eat healthily to give the body quality fuel and of course, herbal medicine is there to support us on this journey 💚

I make herbal blends to support the individual. For some women the focus may be to help the body to cope with stress by supporting adrenal function, increasing their energy and reducing anxiety. Some women may want the focus of the blend to be on hot sweats, heavy bleeding or vaginal dryness and some women may just want support to help them sleep. That’s why herbal medicine is so wonderful 💚 herbs work together to bring us back into balance. Our plant allies are always trying to help us to come back to health and balance. Supporting us to be strong and resilient 🌱

Some of the herbs I may use in a herbal blend for menopausal symptoms are; Rose, Liquorice, Shatavari, Red clover, Sage, Dang Shen, Dong quai, Ladies Mantle, Milk thistle, Rhodiola, Chickweed, Peony root, Passionflower, Vervain, Skullcap, Motherwort, Hawthorn, Chamomile, Lavender, Wood Betony, Rosemary, Lime blossom…. I could go on and on, the herbal choices really are endless.

The herbs are chosen for the individual woman, who she is, how she deals with stress, what other conditions she may have, her emotional well being and spiritual equilibrium 🌹🌱🧚
