Holistic Tips for Women's Hormonal Health - Harmonic Arts

Elizabeth Ferns |

Between various stressors, chemicals, pollution and medication, many women today are facing hormonal imbalances. For Women’s Health Month, we've created a resource for supporting balance. Adding nourishing herbs and lifestyle practices to your routine is an excellent way to support the body and mind through all of its cycles.

Herbs for Women’s Hormone Health

Herbs add vital nutrients and minerals that support our body’s natural functions, including hormone balance. The following herbs naturally cater to women’s wellness. 

Dong Quai

Also known as Female Ginseng, this herb has a very long and rich history of use. It has purple stems and beautiful flowers that bloom in the summertime, but its roots hold the medicine. In TCM, Dong Quai is used to treat PMS symptoms, hormonal imbalances, infertility and low libido. 

Dong Quai is featured in our Female Harmony Tincture Blend. 

Purple Laver

Also known as “Nori,” Purple Laver is a delicious seaweed that grows abundantly on the West Coast. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, protein and iron, making it a great herb to add to your diet during menstruation. 

Find Purple Laver in our Sea-Veg Blend.

Vitex

Vitex has been historically used to treat gynecological conditions for thousands of years. This herb is also known as Chaste, and the berry is where the medicine is extracted from. Vitex is traditionally used to soothe PMS symptoms, enhance mood, and balance irregular menstrual cycles. 

Rose

This versatile herb is rich in vitamins and bioflavonoids. We love Rose for its calming effects on the mind and body. It can soothe anxiety related to PMS, helping to lower levels of cortisol, the “stress hormone.” 

Find Vitex and Rose in our Moontime Artisan Tea.

 

Lifestyle Practices for Women’s Hormone Health

Adopting healthy habits and mindful daily practices are crucial for supporting balanced hormones and overall wellness. 

Eat Vibrantly

Including healthy fats into a well-rounded diet is integral to hormone wellness. Without essential fatty acids, the body cannot produce the hormones it needs to function.  

Add vitamins and minerals that support hormone balance by seed-cycling. Click here to try Seed-Cycling Bliss Balls and learn more about this practice. 

Release Stress

Mindful activities, such as journaling and meditation allow us to acknowledge what’s taking up space in our minds and give us an opportunity to let it go. Releasing stress helps ease production of stress hormones, like cortisol. Cultivating moments of rest and ease in our day can help our nervous system relax, allowing our bodies to function optimally.  

Quality Sleep

Without rest, we can’t repair. Human Growth Hormone, which plays an important role in cell repair, is released during sleep. Create a wind-down routine that works for you and try to get around 7-8 hours of sleep each night.  

Daily Movement 

Moving our bodies daily supports endocrine system balance and cortisol management. Remember to choose daily movement that sparks joy! It doesn’t need to be a vigorous sweat-session every time to reap the benefits.
