Female Health Support (Tender Herbs for Total Care)
This product has its roots in Ayurveda-ancient herbal healthcare system of India. According to Ayurveda the balance of 3 energies - Vata, Pitta and Kapha (Kinetic, Thermal and Potential energy) in the body is a disease free state whereas their imbalance causes diseases. The herbs in this product act synergistically to control vitiated "Vata" and "Pitta". According to Ayurveda vitiated "Vata" causes irregular painful menstruation. It disturbs "Pitta-the thermal energy". Excess "Pitta" causes heavy bleeding, hot flushes and irritability.
Herbs in Female Health Support: Female Health Support is purely an herbal formulation without any chemicals added into it. The ingredients are frequently used in Ayurvedic system of medicine since 5,000 B.C. without any side effects.
Ashok (Saraca indica): Saraca indica is a small tree whose bark is used for medicinal purpose especially for regulating female menstrual cycles. It relieves pre menstrual tension, painful menstruation, irregular menses etc. In sacred book of Hindus- Ramayana it is described that 'Ravana' (King of Devils) kept mother Sita (Wife of Lord Rama) under his custody in "Ashok Vatika" (Garden of Saraca indica). It is said that even the shadow and scent of this tree regulates the female hormonal system.
Lodhra (Symplocus racemosa): Lodhra is big tree whose bark is very astringent and is commonly used in excessive discharge (leucorrhoea), excessive menstruation and painful menstruation. It is useful in all female problems.
Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus): 'Shata' literally means '100' and 'vari' means 'times'. The woman who regularly consumes Asparagus is able to give birth to 100 kids. This is an analogy given in Ayurveda explaining how good Asparagus is for females. It strengthens complete reproductive system of the females as well as regulates hormonal imbalance. It also improves lactation after delivery of baby. It is very good in removing weakness in females.
Menopause is a time during which the levels of a woman's reproductive hormones i.e.estrogen and progesterone decline to the point where menstruation ceases. Menopause is a natural phenomenon and not a disease. The average age of the onset of menopause in women is 50 and above. As per research reports, the hormonal change begins to happen for at least ten years before the periods cease completely. During menopause, the ovaries decrease production of estrogen and progesterone and the adrenal glands start to produce a specific type of estrogen. The adrenal estrogen can replace up to 75% of pre-menopausal levels and results in more problems during menopause. Smoking is also associated with an early menopause. The conventional treatment for these hormonal changes is HRT i.e. artificially synthesised hormones. According to surveys, a higher proportion of women are currently taking HRT. When HRT is stopped, the body immediately resumes its menopausal changes. The symptoms are more severe because of sudden fall in hormone levels on ceasing replacement therapy (HRT).
The risks due to Traditional Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) in women are particularly to the breasts and cardiovascular system. Alternatives to HRT are being preferred and many women choose not to use HRT, even for a short time. There are a lot of supplements including herbs, vitamins, minerals etc. helpful to the women. In case of osteoporosis, there are other methods than the use of HRT to prevent and treat bone loss. For women who do not want synthetic hormone replacements, the only alternative approach is herbs. Natural herbs have fewer or nil side-effects. Ccombined HRT produces a monthly bleed and breast cancer risk has almost doubled in women. HRT is also connected with the development of gall bladder disease.
Herbal medicines stimulate the natural defense system of the body in order to make them more effective. There are herbal remedies for symptoms associated with menopause such as PMS, irregular bleeding, restlessness, hot flashes, mental confusion and general fatigue. Natural HRT contain unique formulations of natural herbal extracts and provide a powerful natural alternative to conventional HRT. The herbal extracts contain an abundance of naturally occurring phytochemicals, that help the body to cope with the complex hormonal changes, encountered during menopause.
In the Female Health Support, each herb is renowned for its ability to help menopausal symptoms. It is the combination of superior standardized extracts of specific natural herbs that makes Natural HRT as a powerful alternative to prescribed HRT.
