Women's Health

Women's bodies are a unique symphony of hormonal balance. Food and natural sources of plant-based hormones bring harmony to the body naturally. Women can ease into menopause and eliminate hormonal disturbances.

PMS and menstruation

Many factors influence PMS, irregular cycles, and cramping. These may include one's percentage of body fat (too high or too low), thyroid or adrenal imbalance, stress, the "wrong" type of fats, nutritional imbalances, and more. The cycle of women's hormones can be positively affected by a variety of herbs, foods, nutrients, and other lifestyle factors.


For many women in the West, menopause is an uncomfortable time of transition. Women from other countries (and more "traditional" cultures) seem to have a much easier transition. Some researchers suspect that American lifestyle and belief systems affect greater discomfort. While this can be true, there are also biochemical explanations and circumstances at play, and many methods of using nutrition to balance and support hormones naturally. And, there are bioidentical hormones (available by many holistic-minded physicians) that can assist with a more smooth transition into menopause.

Holistic therapies such as herbal remedies, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, homeopathy, bodywork, and many others are wonderfully supportive and balancing for women.
