Many women go through sleeplessness, monthly menstrual aches, and a variety of other bothersome issues.
As a result, it is not uncommon to seek an herbal remedy to help get through these situations.
Here are the top eight herbal remedies to help a woman feel better and alleviate a variety of different conditions unique to women.
Herbalists highly recommend sage tea for women who are dealing with the excessive sweating and hot flashes that accompany menopause. Not only sage tea, but sage extract can provide the same relief. During a scientific study in the late 1990’s, Italian researchers found sage and alfalfa supplements, when taken over a three-month period, can alleviate night sweats and hot flashes entirely.
2. Dong Quai
Dong quai belongs to the same family as hemlock, celery, carrots, and parsley. The herb has been used for thousands of years in traditional Asian medicine. Dong quai has been referred to as “female ginseng” because it is commonly used for many health conditions in women.
According to the Mayo Clinic, dong quai has been used to treat menstrual cramps, anemia associated with menstrual cramps, premenstrual syndrome, pelvic pain, childbirth recovery, heart conditions, headache, inflammation, infections, nerve pain, high blood pressure, and fatigue.
3. Black Cohosh
Black cohosh is an herb that is native to North America with a history of being used for rheumatism. It has more recently been used for menopausal women with night sweats, hot flashes, and vaginal dryness. Black cohosh has also been used to induce labor, treat the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, and for menstrual irregularities. According to the United States Pharmacopeia, women should stop using black cohosh and consult with a physician if they have a liver disorder or develop any liver problems.
