Natural Herbal PMS Support (Fem-Aid)

Many of the estrogen level problems girls and women are now dealing with are of fairly recent origin. 40 years ago there was no such thing as premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Now it’s a household word in Western industrialized countries. Other pelvic complaints may include profuse bleeding, cramping, endometriosis, vaginitis, fibroids and early miscarriages. All of these complications, and more, are strongly related to hormone imbalance and estrogen level. Estrogen level conditions are increasing, it is now estimated that 25 percent of all pregnancies will miscarry. There is speculation that our petrochemical age has spawned diseases we’ve never known before - and that endometriosis is one of them.

Estrogen is the name of a class of hormones, among which are a group called xenoestrogens that are environmental compounds (usually petrochemicals). These include plastics, herbicides, pesticides and industrial by-products such as dioxins that are considered very toxic and are pervasively polluting our environment. There is mounting evidence that exposure to xenoestrogens may be a significant cause of breast cancer, decline in male sperm production, testicular cancer and prostate cancer. Synthetic estrogens are made by the pharmaceutical companies and have had their molecular structure altered so they can be patented. They are more potent than the body’s own estrogens, and more toxic. DES is an example of a synthetic estrogen that in the past was used for regulation of the menstrual cycle, in oral contraceptives and was used extensively in beef cattle to fatten them up more quickly for slaughter. It was implicated in causing various types of cancer and has been superseded by other compounds. Hormones are still being used in beef cattle and are now being used to increase milk production in dairy cattle.

Adding the stress of modern life to all the synthetic hormones we are exposed to, and to the many processed foods we have in our diet, puts us all in hormone imbalance to some extent; including estrogen level imbalance in women. To promote hormone balance in our body, and thus improve our health, it is important to eat fresh, unprocessed foods with whole grains and lots of fruits and vegetables. Exercise is crucial as every system in our body performs best when it is moved and stretched regularly. There are herbs that contain natural hormones and that encourage hormone balance. Grandma’s Herbs FEM-AID has many of these herbs to cultivate health and improve estrogen level in the body.
