Menopause is the gradual decline of estrogen production as women age. Symptoms can include night sweats, hot flashes, insomnia, aches and pains, anxiety, and mood swings.

Herbs

Herbs can ease anxiety, liver tonics help balance hormones, and phytoestrogenic herbs help manage hormonal shifts.

Sage supports liver function. Avoid with epilepsy or a chance of pregnancy.   



Motherwort eases palpitations and anxiety. Avoid with heavy menstruation, if there is a chance of pregnancy, or with heart conditions. Take 1-2 milliliters extract in a little water 3 times daily.  

St. John’s wort lifts depression, anxiety, and fatigue. Avoid if there’s a chance of pregnancy and high doses in strong sunlight. If taken internally, interacts with many prescription medicines. Infuse with 1-2 teaspoon dried St. John’s wort in 6 fluid ounces (175 milliliters) boiling water and drink 3 times daily.
