The Premenstrual Days
The Effects of Hormone Variation Prior to MenstruationWomen's hormones are powerful regulators of the mind, body, and emotions -and many women find this to be especially true during the premenstrual days. The primary female hormones, estrogen and progesterone, are powerful regulators of how a woman thinks, feels, and copes. A disruption in the balanced rhythm and smooth cyclic flow of changing hormones can manifest itself in many ways within the two weeks prior to menstruation. With feminine hormones being such powerful regulators of a woman's system, a variation in their balance can have a profound effect on a woman's well-being and productivity.
Are You Affected?Is your productivity and feeling of well-being affected during your premenstrual days? Is it possible that your body may need to better manage the smooth flow of your changing hormones? If so, you are not alone. Experts have reported that up to half of all American women between 20 and 50 years of age are affected by premenstrual hormone flux. Perhaps we can help.
Nutrition and Hormone BalanceNutritionists and traditional herbalists have long recognized the importance of proper premenstrual hormone balance. With persistent dedication they have been able to identify select nutrients and herbs that work in concert with appropriate dietary habits and lifestyle factors to support the body in its effort to maintain that balance. As a result, we are able to apply this knowledge and develop a nutritional program for you with a focus that is uniquely feminine.
A Unique Feminine Program Just For YouThe program is designed to support your body in its effort to maintain: (I) the: function of the endocrine glands involved in the balance of estrogen and progesterone; (2) the circulation of the blood, the medium through which hormones must travel to reach the ovaries, uterus, and endometrium; and (3) liver function, the organ where hormones are broken down and eliminated, preventing the excess accumulation of unwanted hormones.
A partial list of valuable nutrients and herbs include the following: The amino acid taruine, vitamin 86, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and vitamin C to support the liver's involvement in hormone metabolism and the adrenal glands' adaptive response: European, Asian, and Native America; herbs such as the roots of bupleurum, peony; dong quai, and ginger with chasteberry fruit (vitex) and cramp bark are all used within their traditional context to provide feminine support.
The nutritional components used in this strategy are of excellent quality, intelligently combined, delicately prepared, and are consistent with a safe and natural approach. Please do not hesitate to ask for more information.
