Discussing health questions for women is not really easy for many. It can be embarrassing at times and many women tend to turn online or to friends for some simple remedies. However, depending on the problem, it would be wise to get your information from a reliable source.
There are a host of symptoms and illnesses that are specific to women. Natural remedies are aplenty and you will find that there are several that can keep symptoms as well as illnesses at bay preventing them from getting worse. Research has been done on a number of herbs that have medicinal qualities pertaining specifically to women’s issues.
The Black Cohosh belongs to the Buttercup family. It can be taken as a nutritional supplement in the form of tablets, infusion tea and liquid extracts. It helps menopausal women deal with hot flushes, vaginal dryness, heart palpitations, and migraines and keep the symptoms in check.
Dandelion root helps with several women-related illnesses. It can be used as a dried leaf infusion, dried root decoction, a powdered extract, and even a root tincture. The early results from research shows that it can even act as a preventive for cancer.
Since it has diuretic properties, it can bring down water retention. This helps relieve the stress of painful pre-menstrual cramps and discomfort during pregnancy. Bile production is enhanced bringing down the chances of painful menopause and menstrual cycles.
Pregnancy can be all about hormonal imbalances. It can happen at the beginning of your pregnancy, during and most definitely after delivery as well. Anemia and weakness are common side effects and if neglected can turn into something serious.
Dong Quai from the celery family is used largely in China, Japan, as well as Korea. Called the female ginseng, it prevents blood from stagnating since it has anti-coagulant properties. This purifies the system post pregnancy, alleviates pain and relaxes muscles thereby preventing uterine cramps. You can have it as a raw root, a tablet or as in the form of liquid extracts.
You can chew on raspberry leaves to prevent spotting during pregnancy. Menopausal women will find that it tones the uterus and prevents hot flushes and excessive bleeding.
In every one of these cases, you have to keep in mind the chances of allergies and also individual body types. The reaction of each woman to a herb can be different and therefore, it is best taken under the supervision of a medical professional.
