Herbs for menopause wellness

ChamomileHerbs are an essential tool for your menopause toolkit.

Many can be made into a delicious hot or cold infusion, or chopped up and added to your food.

Some herbs are best used in tincture form, while others are effective when used fresh or taken as an infusion, tea, capsule or pill.

Herbs can work quickly, or may take several weeks to produce their maximum effect, so you’ll need to be persistent and consistent. It may be helpful to develop the habit of enjoying a cup of your chosen herbal infusion before bed and on an empty stomach every morning. That way you won’t forget to take your remedy and you can use a milder, less frequent dose to ward off problems once your current menopause challenges are under control.

How to Prepare an Herbal Infusion

1-2 tsp dried herb or herb blend (1-2 tbsp fresh herb) per cup. Pour just-boiled water over herbs, cover and steep 10 to 15 minutes for medicinal effects, or steep 5 minutes for a pleasurable cup of herbal tea or as a ‘preventive dose’. Enjoy 1 to 3 times daily – hot or cold – depending on the severity of your condition.

If your infusion isn’t sweet enough for your taste, or is bitter, do not add sugar. Use a small amount of honey or agave syrup instead. You can also experiment with adding ½ tsp dried licorice root or 1 tsp dried peppermint or lemonbalm to your chosen medicinal herbs to enhance sweetness and taste.

How to choose the herb that’s right for you

If you have more than one bothersome menopause sign, consult with a practitioner to choose the herb, or combination of herbs, that can address all or most of them. If you have many menopause challenges, you may decide to choose herbs proven to alleviate many menopause challenges such as dong quai, vitex, mistletoe or seaweed.

See the Remedies tab for more information about how to use herbs and aromatherapy during your menopause transition.
