Chasteberry /Vitex

I used to talk about this herb so much in the past. It is time to bring it up again.  Chasteberry/Vitex has over the years helped me with PMS symptoms but there are many other benefits from this herb.

I used to suffer from cramps, irritability, and headaches,  Chasteberry helped me. Over the past few years, a week before menstruation I develop sneezing and allergy attacks for two days. I researched it and found that elevated or a decreased estrogen can cause this. So  I started using Chasteberry/Vitex again, which again helped me. Hormonal imbalances can trigger all kinds of inflammation and other autoimmune responses.

Here are other issues Chasteberry/Vitex can help you with :

May shrink uterine fibroids- regulates hormonal imbalances, hence slowing down the growth of fibroids

Reduces Migraines

Alleviates PMS symptoms

Reduces menopausal symptoms

May reduce endometriosis symptoms- may decrease/alleviate inflammation





 I am not a doctor, I am just posting a herb that has helped me and other…

Amla or Indian Gooseberry is native to India. The oil is made from the amla fruit. Among its many gifts, this oil may improve hair luster, aid in hair growth as well as improve skin health.

This highly revered oil does not block pores (non-comedogenic) so it may help those suffering from acne or other skin issues.


Herbs for Prostate Health

Here are some herbs for prostate health. These herbs may help to shrink an enlarged prostate or prevent it.

Saw Palmetto- stops the breakdown of testosterone. Once testosterone breaks down it becomes DHT (dihydrotestosterone). DHT enables the prostate to keep growing and swelling. DHT also causes hair loss.

Hibiscus Tea- anti-inflammatory, lowers blood pressure.

Stinging Nettle- a diuretic, anti-inflammatory.

As with anything consult your doctor especially if you already suffer from prostate ailments.
