Natural Plant Estrogen Provide A Natural Hormone Balance

Natural Plant Estrogen Provide A Natural Hormone Balance

To date, the most powerful of these natural products seem to be those that include phytoestrogens plant-based substances containing plant hormones or hormone precursors. These natural plant estrogens are called “phytoestrogens.” They act like your body’s own estrogen and help provide a natural hormone balance. This magic plant contains chemicals called phytoestrogens – natural compounds which mimic the effects of the female sex hormone estrogen. Phytoestrogens (plant-derived estrogen) are a key group of natural substances in natural hormone replacement therapy. Environmental estrogens are a variety of synthetic chemicals and natural plant compounds that are thought to mimic the female hormone estrogen. Black cohosh has plant estrogen hormone qualities and is believed to be a natural hormone replacement.

Mirifem is a safe, all-natural breast supplement rich in plant estrogens and isoflavones. That’s because these substances act as phytoestrogens, naturally occurring plant compounds that bind to estrogen receptor sites in humans cells, including breast cells. The debate centers around whether these natural plant estrogens can stimulate growth of breast cancer cells or not. The bottom line is that plant natural estrogens can protect a woman from breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer in later life.

Phytoestrogens are simply “plant estrogens” that mimic, to a degree, natural estrogen. PHYOTESTROGENS These are natural plant substances that mimic the effects of estrogen without the side effects of synthetic estrogen. Phyto-estrogens, natural plant estrogens, mimic estrogenic activity. Eagon guessed that at least some of the traditional plant medicines for hot flashes contain naturally occurring compounds that mimic estrogen.

The natural plant derived estrogens have the same chemical structure as the estrogen produced by the body. There is no reason to use it when completely plant-based natural estrogens identical to those made in human body are easily available. These God-created plant estrogens bind to estrogen receptors in the body and function as natural estrogens in alleviating menopausal symptoms. DIET Some foods contain natural plant chemicals that may “fool” the body into producing less estrogen. Lignans are phytoestrogens or natural plant estrogens with estrogen-like actions in the body.

The soy isoflavones of Estromineral (genistin and daidzin) are natural plant estrogens that help replenish and maintain hormonal balance. Research in monkeys suggests that the natural plant estrogens found in soy do not increase markers of breast cancer risk in postmenopausal women. Soy Products, such as tofu or soy isoflavone extract, and flaxseed contain high levels of natural plant estrogens. Skincare line, still one step ahead of the rest thanks to Genistein, its exclusive collagen-boosting ingredient that’s a natural plant estrogen found in soy. The magic ingredient in soy protein are the isoflavones, natural plant chemicals that are basically a weak form of estrogen. Another interesting soy is Daiazein which contains phytoestrogen, a natural plant estrogen that has proven to help fight breast cancer. Soy foods contain isoflavones (natural plant estrogen) that have similar properties to human estrogen, but are much weaker.

Isoflavones are concentrated components from soy and other plants which provide safe, natural plant estrogens. Both the estradiol (estrogen) and the testosterone are derived from soy and other natural plant-based ingredients. Another example is the natural estrogen-type compounds (genistein and others) found in soy and red clover and many other plants. The study compared growth-promoting effects on uterine tissue of synthetic estrogen, natural estrogen and genistein, a plant estrogen found in soy. Liew shows how natural plant estrogens, like those found in soy products, can be beneficial to both men and women of any age. Estroven provides natural support before, during and after this transition with: Soy and other plants, sources of natural estrogens, for hormonal balance. The specific plant estrogens, or isoflavones, in soy include daidzein, genistein, formononetin and other naturally occurring compounds.

Promotes breast health.Promotes heart health.Novogen Promensil Natural plant estrogens for women experiencing normal midlife changes. More and more women rely on plant derived phytoestrogens as a natural way to help support a woman’s transition. Some women find relief with “natural” hormones made from plant estrogens that more closely mimic what is produced in the body, said Dr. These women eat plant foods containing estrogen like substances that augment natural estrogen in their bodies. Currently, an estimated two million women are now benefiting from natural ‘plant-derived bio-identical” estrogens and progesterone. It was first released in 1997 in Australia, where it quickly became the bestselling dietary supplement of natural plant estrogens for women. An estimated two million women are now benefiting from natural “plant-derived bio-identical” estrogens and progesterone. If you are approaching menopause.

Hormone Balancing

Hormone Balancing

Many of our physical problems may have their origin in the imbalanced functioning of the endocrine system. The symptoms of such hormonal disorders may take the form of headaches, allergies, insomnia, cysts, cancer, osteoporosis, inflammation of the joints and muscles, rheumatism, arthritis, menstrual irregularities, emotional imbalance, mental disorders, lack of energy and an excessive tendency to gain or lose weight. These are only a few of many possible problems, which may result from imbalances in the hormonal secretions of the endocrine system. Here we have not even mentioned the obvious and severe malfunctioning of the endocrine glands, which produce cysts, gross malformations and malfunctioning in the body. Even in cases where hormones may not be the main disturbing factor, they will almost always be involved or affected in some way because of their extremely important role in the «master control mechanism» of the body.


1. EAT A PURE DIET free from chemical preservatives, insecticides, hormones, and drugs of any kind. Eat as little meat as possible as most meat comes from animals that have been given hormones to grow faster and larger.

2. Recent studies have found the following vitamins especially useful. Vitamin C, Beta Carotene through plenty of carrots, squash, broccoli, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, beets, brussel sprouts and other fresh vegetables. Vitamins E and B complex and Zinc. These all protect the body from the effect of toxic substances and negative emotions. Also other substitutes such gamma linoeic acid and evening primrose oil seem to have a harmonizing effect on the hormonal balance ? especially for women.

3. OCCASIONAL FASTING will help to clean out the system of accumulated waste products that may be preventing the proper functioning of the various organs of the body. Fasting on water or juices one day per week keeps the body free of toxic build up when one has been eating properly.

4. REFLEXOLOGY MASSAGE is especially effective in rejuvenating the various endocrine glands. By massaging the reflex points on the bottom of the feel corresponding to the endocrine glands, which are not functioning well, we are often able to stimulate them into proper functioning. I have personally seen this work in many cases, including the miraculous disappearance of cysts and tumors from the breast, ovaries and other parts of the body. It is best to work on all the aspects of the endocrine system.

5. A HARMONIOUS ROUTINE is essential in establishing a harmony in the hormonal secretions. All of nature operates in rhythms and cycles: the sun, the moon, the earth, night and day, winter and summer, birth and death, darkness and light. The human being needs to live in harmony with those rhythms. Many of our physical and mental problems today are a function of the fact that we have left the natural rhythms of nature. We need to establish a harmonious pattern of eating, working, resting, recreation and sleep. If we overdo any of these, or disrupt our pattern by skipping meals, or eating continuously, or not getting enough rest or sleep, all this will throw our endocrine and nervous system out of balance.

6. FREQUENT CONTACT WITH WATER seems to have a balancing and healing effect on hormonal disorders. At least 6 to 8 cups of liquid should be taken a day in the form of water or herb teas. One should avoid coffee and alcoholic drinks. Also frequent washing of the face, neck, arms and legs also rejuvenate the body and restore harmony. This can be done upon waking, before sleeping, and before all meals. If one is in the habit of praying or meditating, he may also like to wash before doing so

7. THE RELEASE OF EMOTIONAL TENSION that may be causing the endocrine disturbance will be essential for any real lasting cure. These emotional tensions can be released to a great degree through physical exercises, breathing techniques and deep relaxation techniques designed specifically for the purpose.

We must also seek to discover how we are creating that tension in ourselves. We must discover what addictions, expectations, programmings, attitudes and fears are contributing to our load of stress and tension. It is important, too that we start to think more positively about ourselves, others and life.

8. A PHILOSOPHICAL VIEW OF LIFE can help us to overcome many potentially disturbing events and situations. Those who believe in the eternal existence of the soul, in the existence of a divine power, in the value of love and truth, and have faith (real faith – not just lip service) tend to be less disturbed by disappointments and the difficulties of life. This kind of inner strength and inner peace is a great asset for hormonal harmony. Thus, whatever may be a person’s spiritual beliefs, if he or she lives in harmony with them, there will be greater physical harmony.

9. DEEP RHYTHMIC BREATHING in which one breathes slowly and deeply counting mentally so as to create a peaceful but energized state of body and mind is perhaps the most effective way to create hormonal harmony. These breathing techniques can be practiced twice a day on an empty stomach for about five minutes depending on one’s capacity. One should NEVER strain either in terms of breath retention or in duration of the exercise. Always work within your comfortable limits. Regularity in practice is absolutely necessary for results. A suitable ratio for breathing would be 2:1:2:1 meaning that the inhalation and exhalation would be twice the duration of the retention and suspension.

DEEP RELAXATION TECHNIQUES in which we relax all of the body and then consciously send healing energies in the form of light, love, peaceful thoughts of positive images to the problematic organs can do much to restore the proper harmonious functioning of the endocrine and nervous system, and thus to all the other systems of the body which depend on these two master systems.

While in the state of deep concentration visualize your body’s immune system and nervous systems functioning perfectly. Imagine this in any creative way that is suitable to you. Imagine the healing white light and love in all parts of your body In conclusion: 1. Many physical and mental problems are the result of hormonal imbalances. 2. These are seldom discovered through normal medical examination, and sometimes cannot be determined even in specific tests. 3. It is preferable for a person to try to restore his natural hormonal balance through natural means before resorting to chemical hormone tablets or surgery, which have side effects. 4. Hormonal harmony and human harmony are interdependent 5. The results will depend on how conscious and disciplined you are in your employment of your self-therapy program.

Effects of Hormone Loss

Effects of Hormone Loss

As women age estrogen levels fall, which impacts many parts of the body including skin, bones, and bladder.

Dry itchy skin is a common complaint. FACT: Without estrogen, the body tissues lose elasticity and shrink. A common complaint is you feel like your skin is crawling or it becomes sweaty and hot. There is an increased sensitivity to the sun, problem with teeth such as bleeding gums, lose teeth, and the eyes may be dry and itchy. FACT: Estrogen is a hormone that is circulated in the blood and affects both the well being and general state of health. FACT: Menopause is triggered by hormonal changes in the endocrine system. FACT: The ancient Greek physician Hippocrates (the father of medicine) was the first to describe menopause, which he put at the age of 50. FACT: A blood test called the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) can reveal the arrival of menopause. The common medical response to menopause and estrogen loss is Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). HRT is a synthetic form that acts as a replacement for the natural hormone, estrogen, the body produced in higher levels prior to menopause.

Hormone Replacement Therapy must be prescribed by a licensed physician. Recent studies indicate HRT has the potential for significant side effects. The side effects should be carefully evaluated. More information on the risks of HRT can be found from the following sources:

1. National Women’s Health Network – 514 10th Street NW, Suite 402, Washington, DC 20004, Phone 202-347-1140.

2. National Institution on Aging Information Center – P.O. Box 8057, Gaitnersburg, MD 20898-8057, Phone 800-222-2225, Publishes resource directory for older people, resources for womens health and aging.

Because of the risks now found to be inherent in hormone replacement therapy, all natural estrogen formulations from plant sources are becoming available. Carefully formulated hormone balancing creams are available both with and without herbs that resolve the physical and emotional changes that occur during menopause but from all natural sources. Look for herbal balances that include black cohosh, chaste tree berries, dong quai, evening primrose oil, red clover, alfalfa, licorice, and ginseng. These creams are available over-the-counter.

Exercise and diet are also important during menopause. The best type of exercise will build strength and stamina, increase flexibility, and help balance and concentration. Exercise such as tennis, brisk walking, jogging, and step aerobics are recommended. A carefully balanced diet, often including supplemental vitamins and minerals, help the body function at its optimal level.

Typically, Vitamins A, C, E and the mineral Selenium, commonly termed antioxidants, become more important in protecting body cells from damage as we age. Vitamin D, combined with calcium, formulated with glucosamine and chondroitin are typically recommended.

Are The Risks Of Menopause Hormone Replacement Theraphy Real?

Are The Risks Of Menopause Hormone Replacement Theraphy Real?

Menopause is a normal and natural stage of life that is as automatic as puberty, and programmed into every woman’s body. However, a question many women have on their mind as they are entering menopause is how to safely and effectively manage menopause symptoms ─ go natural, try hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or do nothing.

My personal undertaking with Solutions for Women has been to help women better understand confusing information about hormone replacement treatment options including bioidentical hormone therapy.

I was recently asked this question:

Are the risks of taking menopause hormone replacement therapy (HRT) real?

The answer is yes and clinically proven many times over to harm to a women’s health.

Taking hormone replacement therapy has been associated with increased rates of breast cancer, heart disease, stroke, blood clots, and memory loss. Most recently HRT has also been associated with lung cancer.

These risks were revealed with the sudden closure of the 2002 Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study. In 2008 the WHI also reported on a study that confirmed that the risk for developing breast cancer doubles after 5 years of taking HRT.

After the WHI results were released to the public in 2002, prescriptions for hormone replacement therapy decreased by over 60 percent. Two years later there was a dramatic decline in the number of new cases of breast cancer reported. This drop in breast cancer was seen in women over 50 who are the candidates for hormone replacement as a treatment for the symptoms of menopause. Many experts account the unforeseen change in the numbers of women developing breast cancer to women refusing to take artificial hormones (HRT).

The FDA and the WHI both agree the health risks of HRT outweigh any possible benefit.

It does not appear that HRT in any form is safe for women to take for menopause symptom relief, or any other reason. There also is no evidence that Bioidentical Hormones are any safer than traditional HRT.Many doctors still prescribe low-dose HRT only for women with severe hot flashes and only for a short period of time, approximately one year. The problem is that most women who stop taking HRT find that their hot flashes return and typically will be more severe.

You should not ever feel forced into taking hormone replacement therapy of any kind.

Dr. Susan Love, Breast Cancer Research Foundation states: “We need high levels of hormones to reproduce, and then, when we reach menopause, our hormones shift down to a safer level. The bottom-line has been reinforced: Artificially maintaining higher levels of hormones is not good for our health. This is true regardless of whether the hormones are “bioidentical” or not.”

Fasano is the founder of Solutions for Women, the developer of Femmerol, a patented, clinically tested micronized herbal formulation for addressing hormonal imbalance due to menopause, perimenopause, and monthly hormonal fluctuations.

Organic Treatment from Female Hormone Imbalances

Organic Treatment from Female Hormone Imbalances

From the time a lady starts menstruating until the time she reaches menopause, she’s going to experience psychological, physical and emotional challenges on a monthly foundation(besides throughout pregnancy) which may all be attributed to the actions of the dominant female hormones, estrogen and progesterone. Hormones are highly effective chemical messengers in the body. For some ladies, the adjustments they trigger are dramatic, while others barely discover them. Like most issues in life, the distinction lies within the balance. A wholesome steadiness of estrogen and progesterone is essential not only for regular, symptom-free menstrual cycles and an easy transition into menopause, it also promotes the long term well being of breast, uterine, coronary heart and bone tissue. So how do you obtain hormone stability if you are one of the 75% of ladies who expertise scorching flashes and different signs related to menopause?
Initially, true hormonal balance will never be achieved by means of typical treatments resembling oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy(HRT). Each mask underlying imbalances of estrogen and progesterone by taking on the duty of supplying the physique with hormones. Moreover, they include artificial hormones which don’t behave the identical because the body’s personal estrogen and progesterone. As a result, they can increase the risk for hormone-associated diseases. In July of 2002, the Nationwide Institute of Well being halted one of the largest medical trials performed to this point aimed toward determining the long term effects of HRT after preliminary knowledge confirmed that ladies taking HRT were at increased risk for stroke, heart attacks and blood clots. Since then, the Meals and Drug Administration has decided that the risks of taking HRT outweigh the potential advantages, and now cautions girls to make use of “the lowest effective dose for the shortest time essential”. Naturally, many women in search of secure lengthy-term solutions now seek out options to conventional hormone treatments and are pleasantly stunned to seek out just how effective an natural method can be.
One of the extensively used herbs in North America for treating a variety of feminine complaints and conditions is black cohosh. Quite a few clinical research have shown that this herb supplies effective relief from symptomatic menopause. Although it was lengthy assumed that black cohosh’s effects have been a result of weakly appearing plant estrogens or “phytoestrogens” contained inside the herb, researchers from the College of Illinois in Chicago not too long ago showed that black cohosh just isn’t estrogenic in any way and almost definitely works by focusing on receptors in the brain chargeable for regulation of physique temperature. This is good news for girls who have a historical past of breast cancer or are trying to minimize exposure to estrogens. In reality, laboratory studies indicate that black cohosh truly encourages wholesome growth of breast tissue.
Another herb that has lengthy been used to promote hormonal stability, especially when manifesting as irregular cycles or PMS signs, including temper disturbances, bloating, breast tenderness, water retention, and pores and skin and digestive disturbances, is chaste tree. The berries of the chaste tree act on the body’s master hormone controllers, the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, to extend the production of leutenizing hormone(LH) while inhibiting follicle stimulating hormone(FSH). This shifts the ratio of estrogen to progesterone in favour of progesterone and is critical for PMS victims as well as ladies who are perimenopausal, since the majority of signs are attributable to a deficiency of progesterone relative to estrogen during the second half of the menstrual cycle. Simply how efficient is chaste tree? An European research involving 1,634 women suffering from PMS discovered that 93% reported a decrease in the variety of signs or perhaps a cessation of PMS complaints after three months of taking chaste tree.
Different natural allies for girls’s health are schizandra, ginger, rosemary and evening primrose. Schizandra is an outstanding stress-balancing and detoxifying herb. Since each stress and impaired liver detoxing can affect hormone stability, it is nicely indicated for female complaints. Of word is that schizandra is utilized in Traditional Chinese Medicine to appropriate fluid imbalances which can manifest as vaginal dryness. Ginger and rosemary each include wealthy sources of plant compounds which safely promote a healthy inflammation response in the body. Research carried out over the past 20 years has made it abundantly clear that a wholesome irritation response is important for sustaining normal cell development, cardiovascular well being, wholesome cognitive operate and even wholesome bones. Lastly, the oil from night primrose contains the important omega 6 fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid(GLA) which has repeatedly been proven to ease both physical and psychological signs associated with PMS in up to 60% of women.
A dietary complement that combines all of those time-tested and significantly researched natural elements will help ladies of all ages safely obtain optimum hormone steadiness and find reduction from female complaints corresponding to PMS and symptomatic menopause. Since hormone balance does not occur in a single day, it is best to use the product for no less than three months for optimum results.
