Herbs to Manage Estrogen Dominance can Stop Women Anxiety

Basically, anxiety is a mental health disorder that can cause nervousness, fear, and apprehension. External factors can be stress from school, stress from work, the side effect of medication, hormonal imbalance etc.

One of the most common hormonal imbalances that majority of the women experienced is what we call estrogen dominance. Symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding, breast or ovarian fibroids, varicose veins, body fat, cellulite, PMS, fluid retention, and anxiety. Endometriosis can also be triggered or worsened by having a dominant amount of estrogen in the body.

Estrogen dominance can trigger excess levels of strong estrogen namely estrone and estradiol. These can also cause low progesterone levels because estrogen becomes too dominant when women experience stress as they don't produce enough progesterone.

Nature offers powerful remedies you can do at home to help restore the hormonal balance between estrogen and progesterone.

Herbal Plants:

  • Chaste tree (Vitex Agnus-cactus) also known as Monk's Pepper got these names from the anti-aphrodisiac characteristic of the plant. This plant's berries and leaves are chewed by the Monks to reduce urges. It can also reduce libido when used in large quantities. This amazing plant can increase the luteinizing hormone which is essential in raising progesterone levels.
  • Passionflower, this plant is high in chrysin. The naturally occurring flavonoid that is found in plants like passionflower and chamomile may help lower estradiol. This can give you ease, especially during perimenopausal sleep disturbance. This also promotes calming and mild sedative qualities.
  • Raspberry Leaf can be enjoyed in tea form. It has high levels of an antioxidant called ellagic acid. Raspberry leaf helps to reduce the risk of hormonal cancers caused by 17beta-estradiol and it can also alter estrogen metabolism.
  • Maca like licorice and ginseng is an herbal adaptogen. It can easily adapt to your body's needs and promotes the natural balance of your hormones. Women consuming 500mg Maca capsules twice a day can see some beneficial changes when taken over four months. Maca root also increases the level of progesterone.
