What is menopause?

Menopause is the permanent cessation of menstruation in women, which occurs on average around age 51. Some women stop menstruating at some point during their 40s or 50s with little or no discomfort or disturbance of their lives, while others experience depression, irregular menstruation, excessively heavy periods amounting almost to hemorrhage, hot flushes, insomnia, and other symptoms for long periods of time, sometimes several years.

Best herbs for women during menopause

  • For hot flashes, studies conducted on Saint John wort has found that this herb can reduce the frequency of hot flashes after one month of daily use (and more significantly after 2 months).
  • For night sweats, Sage is the most recommended herb. It has effective astringent properties that help to treat excessive sweating.
  • For insomnia, the most recommended herb is Valerian. You can also find other suggestions on the page dedicated to herbs for insomnia.
  • Low sex drive/estrogen production: Maca is an herbal remedy from Peru. It is mostly used by men looking for an extra boost, but it also has effects on women. Research on menopausal women indicates that maca can increase the body production of estrogen. This might be worth trying if this can avoid you to use hormone replacement therapy (and all the side effects associated with this therapy
  • Fennel is an herb that contains plant estrogens, so fennel might be a valuable herb to decrease the effects linked to the decrease of estrogen production. Yet, contrary to maca, it does not boost the production of estrogen by your body.
  • Atrophic Vaginitis: a douche using a cold infusion made with herbs such as Calendula or Saint John's Wort can alleviate symptoms.
  • Irritability: Valerian is again a good choice. You can also use Lavender, notably if you are a little anxious in this period of your live.
