A herbalist curated herbal tea formula for women experiencing Menopause and Perimenopause.
What is Perimenopause?
Perimenopause means 'around menopause' which refers to the time surrounding the female body making its natural transition to menopause. This stage is also referred to as the ‘menopausal transition'. In the transition stage the menstrual cycle starts to become irregular and women may begin to experience symptoms such as hot flushes. Women can start Perimenopause at different ages.
What is Menopause?
Menopause is defined as when a woman’s ovaries no longer make oestrogen or progesterone, and their periods have stopped for one year. However there is more than one stage of menopause. Menopause is once a woman has experienced her final period and will experience hot flushes, vaginal dryness, sleep problems and mood swings. Menopause can be confusing and uncomfortable period in a women’s life, a healthy diet and a regular exercise routine can help regulate these symptoms however herbal tonics have successfully been used to help relieve menopausal symptoms for years.
What does the NHS about Menopause?
'The Menopause is when a woman stops having periods and is no longer able to get pregnant naturally.'
The majority of menopausal women can experience symptoms due to hormonal changes within the body, such as:
- Anxiety and mood swings
- Low libido
- Hot flushes
- Vaginal dryness
- Difficulty sleeping
- Problems concentrating and remembering
If symptoms are severe and cause disruption to day-to-day life your GP can offer treatments to help provide relief.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a common treatment for menopause symptoms. It works by replacing oestrogen within the body using tablets, skin patches, gels and implants.
Our menopause tea helps regulate hormonal imbalances using natural resources.
The 'Hit The Pause Button' blend has been carefully formulated with beneficial herbs and plants to help your body through this time, our blend includes:
A traditional herbal tonic that is extremely useful in combatting menopausal symptoms, particularly hot flashes, dryness, irregular memory and irritability. It contains shatavarins which provide oestrogenic stimulation when there is a lack of oestrogen.
The Lady’s Mantle herb is often referred to as a “women’s herb” as it’s leaves are used to remedy menopausal symptoms. It acts on the progesterone receptors in the body which can help reduce the occurrence of hot flashes, night sweats, anxiety and mood swings. It also reduces heavy bleeding which is beneficial in the perimenopause stage.
Red clover has been used for centuries as a herbal tonic as it contains isoflavones (a type of phtooestrogen).Phytoestrogens help alleviate the severity of some menopause symptoms as they boost the level of oestrogen.
Hawthorn provides relief from hot flashes and helps menopausal women sleep better and find comfort throughout the day. It also helps maintain normal bodily function as a circulation booster, blood pressure regulator, cholesterol fighter and digestive aide.
Vitex Angus Castus
Also known as the chaste tree Berry, Vitex is used as a therapeutic option for soothing the transitional symptoms experienced in menopause as it is a hormone regulator. It gently raises progesterone levels which is important in perimenopause as the oestrogen levels are a lot higher.
During perimenopause and menopause, the hypothalamus can get confused by the hormonal changes in the body, this is what causes hot flashes and night sweats as the hypothalamus regulates body temperature. Sage helps reconfigure the temperature of the body.
Dandelion root helps regulate hormone production and clears out old and stagnant hormones. The root it packed full of antioxidants that help reduce stress and slow down the signs of ageing.
