There is nothing more frustrating than to be told to "chill out" when you are stressed to your eyeballs and finding it impossible to even have a clear train of thought!
Your bodies stress responses can sometimes fail to switch off. Your bodies failure to relax and reduce stress hormones can result in not only depression and anxiety but a long list of symptoms: eczema, asthma, urticaria, migraines, hypertension, pain, indigestion, diarrhoea, constipation IBS, insomnia and panic attacks.
We have many well researched herbal medicines that help the body to balance the hypothalamic-pituitary-axis and help your body and mind to relax.
We are not all the same and what works for one, does not work for everyone. This is why a herbal tonic which is perfectly formulated to respond to your bodies stress response is a great way to restore physiological balance mitigate chronic health issues caused by stress.
Some of my favourite herbs to treat stress include: Siberian Ginseng, Ashwagandha, Rehmannia and Lemon Balm.
If a cup of chamomile tea just isn't cutting it for you at the moment give us a call and I will be happy to formulate the perfect herbal medicine to bring your body back into balance. ... See MoreSee Less
The Complexity of Female Hormones
From puberty, to periods, to menopause – hormones can pose a challenge for many women throughout their lives. You may be all too familiar with symptoms such as painful, heavy or irregular periods, premenstrual mood swings and bloating, hot flushes…and the list goes on. Female hormonal conditions are complex and frequently frustrating for women. While hormonal fluctuations have traditionally been blamed, there is more to this story - many other factors also affect the subtle balance required for optimal hormonal harmony.
Riding the Hormonal Roller Coaster?
Do you feel you have no control over the ups and downs of hormonal change you ride through each month? Your symptoms may be related to one of these conditions:
• Premenstrual syndrome (PMS): includes symptoms of breast tenderness, migraines and mood changes prior to your period. PMS may be linked to lowered progesterone levels and often made worse by stress.
• Endometriosis and fibroids: women with these conditions often experience heavy, painful periods, pain throughout the month, bloating, and sometimes weight gain.
• Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS): missing periods, facial hair growth, sugar cravings, weight gain and difficulty conceiving are commonly experienced, due to higher than normal testosterone and lower progesterone levels.
• Menopause: many women suffer from hot flushes, night sweats, and anxiety, as their periods come to a stop.
Musicians Distort the Melody
While different conditions are influenced by subtle changes in hormone levels, there are many other factors that also play a role. Likened to musicians in the orchestra playing out of tune, some of these come from your body - such as inflammation (e.g. from joint pain or digestive imbalance), being overweight, and feeling stressed. The environment you live in can also play havoc with hormones. Toxins are virtually unavoidable and many, such as bisphenyl-A or ‘BPA’ (found in plastics, the lining of tins, and even on shopping dockets) have hormone-like effects and may negatively affect your hormonal balance.
