Re: TMG??   by Hveragerthi   4y
  I did have one more question about Vitex. Is it the berry only or whole plant that I should be looking for to take? For the hormones the berries are the part used.  Other parts of the plant have other properties.  The leaves are thought to be a good sedative, and they have been found to be great mosquito repellents.  The root bark is a preventative for some cancers. Is there anything important to note about the quality? If using the powder it should have strong characteristic smell still if it is still fresh.   992 hits

Re: overweight and celiac disease   by spudlydoo   4y
The only definite way to know if you have celiac disease is to have a biopsy done on your bowel. Many people, however, do have wheat sensitivity, this is not considered celiac disease, but can cause inflamation of the bowel, so the symptoms can be similar, but not as severe as celiac disease. If you are having swelling of the fingers this is normally due to water retention rather than weight gain. Celery seed can really help with this, and it also helps to lower your blood pressure, as the two often go hand in hand.

Re: Please Shelly A few Questions about Herbs   by shelleycat   10y
Why are you taking Vitex? It’s estrogenic. Not safe. Tea or tincture is fine - go for whatever is most convenient. You can mix most tinctures no problem. Chinese bitters only needs 20 minutes, then you can take olive oil and lemon juice. About 20 minutes after that you can have breakfast - if you still want it! :) Olive oil and lemon juice will force the liver and gallbladder to expel bile. This is how the liver exits the toxins it cleanses out of the bloodstream. It has to go somewhere, after all! :) The bile goes into the small intestine, then passes out the large intestine. ...   693 hits

Hi Carrie! Well, the liver is involved in both candida and estrogen.

Then once candida gets out of hand, the liver is compromised even further, so even more estrogen issues come on board to party... yippeee..... ;) Avoiding foods high in estrogen (soy, flax, evening primrose) while taking the herb Vitex (it’s in Fem-Mate from www.sensiblehealth) and liver detox herbs should bring you back into balance.

Bitters cleanse the liver, which in turn allows the liver to break down excess hormones.  This includes the androgens that lead to acne.  Zinc, 50mg daily with a large meal, is also recommended to help with hormones balance.  B vitamins are important for the liver to break down excess hormones. Food sources such as rice bran, seaweeds, nutritional yeast, etc. are best. Progesterone is very effective in suppressing the libido in both men and women.  Vitex (chaste tree berry) will raise progesterone, but it takes several months to kick in.

Re: Botanical Relief for Menopause Discomforts   by spudlydoo   5y
I’ve had good results with the vitex after about 6 weeks. When I first went off birth control, my body had stopped making progesterone, due to the artificial progestins in the BC. I did use a bioidentical creame for the first month, as I was not making my own progesterone. It was good as a stop gap, but I didn’t want to be using it all the time, I wanted my body to start producing its own progesterone. With the help of herbs I’m now balanced hormonally. It does require patience, but its worth it in the end. Thanks Hv for all your help with this:) spud   1,866 hits

It sounds like you are probably referring to endometriosis. Getting the hormones under control is essential. Bitters are the most effective way to break down the excess estrogen. B vitamins are also essential for the liver to break down the hormones. Rice bran would be a good source of B vitamins and will help feed the flora that then further break down the estrogen metabolites. Vitex (chaste tree berry) will help elevate progesterone levels naturally, but it takes a couple of months to really kick in. Dietary phytoestrogens can also help by antagonizing estrogen.

The role of vitex is to help the body generate the progesterone it needs. An adverse effect of this though is suppression of libido, thus its other name chaste tree berry.

The body can regulate its hormones pretty well in most cases provided the liver and adrenals are functioning properly. This is why I recommend bitters to cleanse the liver. And many of the adaptogenic herbs, that support the adrenals, also help to balance the hormones. In particular suma, wild yam and licorice root.

I do eat organic foods though..all the meats found in the store are full of hormones, antiobiotics, and who knows what else. Good points!   2,396 hits

Re: PLease Help   by ICOC_98   11y
There’s no way that these problems can be brought on by the mental means. I feel so bad for her, she must be suffering a lot. She should go to the doctor to get a complete examination, she may have ovarian cysts or tumors, endometriosis, etc. Try Vitex, it’s an herb that has been used for years for hormone balance. Also, try avoiding all meat and milk that is not organic. They have hormones that set our bodies into hormonal turmoil. Have her try to eat mostly veggies and some fruits. She may need to do parasite cleanse. Get rid of all the dangerous white foods, such as sugar, flour, rice,e ...   1,097 hits

Re: Endometriosis   by tandy   11y
I just had a laparoscopy--stage 2 endo. The doctor removed all the endo he saw. I’m now on ortho evra (the patch), and have started using progesterone cream. Do you thing that’s OK to do both of these? A friend of mine told me about Vitex, too, so I picked up a bottle of it. Is it OK to use along with all this other stuff. And if so, when do I take it? (Every day, or just days 6-28?) Thanks much for the help!   1,578 hits

Re: Advice?   by ellen cherry   11y
Thank you so much. I am really focusing on cleansing right now. I did my 1st liver flush and will do another in 2 weeks. I am also taking herbs to decongest my liver so that excess estrogen can be released. I have just started P&B shakes and I hope they start to work soon. I am also planning to do a parasite cleanse. The vitex supposedly helps to regulate hormones, no matter what the imbalance. I chose it because it seemed the most natural approach. It definitely is doing something, I just wish I could see some concrete indications that it is working. I am feeling very premenstrua ...   987 hits

good news   R by ellen cherry   11y   View Entire Thread 5
I ovulated yesterday! Finally- it’s been 3 months. I noticed a spike in my basal body temperature and also had think ”egg white” discharge. I don’t know whether or not this is related to my quitting the vitex last week, but I will stay off of it for now. I will be interested to see how long of a luteal phase I have, because before I started all of this healing mine were only 4 days (very estrogen dominant). Anyway, thought I’d share the good news and I hope that I have a nice long luteal phase. ellen cherry   1,654 hits     0 of 1 (0%)

forgot   by WhiteIris   10y
Two herbs may help a little, not a cure though: Red Raspberry tea and Chasteberry also called Vitex. Try to get capsules not alcohol or glycerin tinctures. Even the littlist things aggravate candida. I don’t know how sensitive you are. Also all the times you come off candida diet and binge on cookies and bread or whatever your not good for the pancreas. Remember the hypoglycemia you are havinng. that is why. I did the same too, the candida diet m,made me worse not better. So don’t feel alone. gracey   877 hits

Re: estrogen dominance   by nanekitoo   10y
What’s been helping me is taking Vitex. I’ve been estrogen dominant for quite awhile because I was not ovulating. No ovulation means no progesterone is being produced in the second half of your cycle and progesterone is what balances out the estrogen. I’ve actually ovulated 3 out of 5 cycles since I started using it and it’s making a difference for me. Of course, it really depends why you are estrogen dominant. You can also try eating organic meats to cut out xenoestrogens and I’ve heard good things about using natural progesterone creams to supplement during the second half of your c ...   1,043 hits

Re: -Elly-   by elly   10y
Hi Ev, Thanks, they do have wild yam cream and vitex at our health foods store. She said that we need a prescription for natural progesterone cream. I am in B.C. and right now it is so hot that i think it may be a little bit of the humidity that is causing more perspiring, but i am still having night sweats. Everyone seems to be complaining about waking up and being drenched at night here. After it starts to cool down here i will see if i am still perspiring at night and then maybe try the wild yam cream. Take care LL   1,300 hits

Re: Oxygen?   by Hveragerthi   6y
A couple of suggestions. First stay away from caffeine. Secondly this is a problem of a hormone imbalance. Consuming more phytoestrogen rich foods will help. These include soy products, sage, yams, peas, beans, seaweeds, and kudzu. Flavonoids also have phytoestrogen-like effects. Berries are great sources of bioflavonoids. The herb vitex (chaste tree berry)can help by stimulating progesterone production. It does take a few months to build up. Cleansing the liver with digestive bitters is especially good since the liver is responsible for breaking down excess estrogens. Drink a ...   1,242 hits

Re: Female Formula recipe   by beena22   11y
The recipe that I have for Dr. Schulze’s Female Formula is this: 1. Put together equal amounts of the following TINCTURES: angelica or dong quai root (angelica sinensis), mexican wild yam root (dioscorea villousa), chaste tree berries (vitex agnus-castus), These ingredients make up 75% (or 1.5 oz) of the Female Formula. 2. Put together their respective amounts of the following TINCTURES: 3 parts damiana leaf, 1 part licorice root, and 1 part hops flowers. These ingredients make up the other 25% ( or .5 oz) of the Female Formula. Hope this helps.   2,484 hits

try mixing your own from bulk hebs   by #33901   9y
  Since the capsules you were taking contained equal parts of Vitex (chaste tree) and wild yam, you could buy the powdered herbs in bulk and mix them yourself.  You didn’t say how big the capules were, eg, "0" or "00" size.  If you are only taking two capsules a day, I would suggest 1/2 teaspoon twice a day, mixed with some warm water.  The taste of both of these herbs is not especially strong or distasteful. I’ve taken both in the manner described. You can buy the herbs from HerbalAlchemy or Present Moment. I’ve pasted a link here below.&nb ...   1,051 hits

Absolutely Grog!..................Also...............   by Robbie   11y
Hi Grog, I agree with you totally! I think she should visit Andreas’s forum because post pardum depression is a classic sign of liver congestion causing an inbalance in the hormones estrogen & progesteron. When estorgen rises and progesterone falls abruptly right after child birth, depression and all the other symptoms associated with this can be overwhelming and cause all kinds of mental health issues. It’s all a inbalance that can be corrected with some cleasing of the liver,bowel & kidneys can stand a good cleansing too while your at it.

Same position as you , had mine taken out on the 26th of September. Didn’t want to take chances so I started taking Vitex Agnus castus tincture on the 3rd of October. Had my period on the 13th of October ( last cycle was 17th September with mirena in) - My cycle was normal , no clots but fresh bleed, not heavy flood type bleeding .Finished up nicely in 4 days and hope God willing to conceive ASAP!!! Best advices is just relax, don’t be too anxious trust God and be prayful and let him bless you! Blessings.   935 hits
