Natural Remedies and Herbs to Improve your Reproductive System Naturally: Plant Based Alternative to Women's Health

Whether you have PCOS, PMS symptoms, endometriosis, menopause, infertility or other reproductive concerns, this can a journey to improvement. If you experience heavy periods, reducing that can be as simple as altering your diet.

I experienced heavy periods for years until I made changes to my lifestyle, mindset, and diet. I endured cramps during the first few years of my menstrual cycle. One day, I was at summer camp and I saw my friend stretching. I asked her "Why are you stretching?" She told me "It helps stop my period cramps". I started to stretch regularly, especially when I knew my period was right around the corner and I am now 29 and haven't experienced cramps since then. Thank you Dior.

Different Types of Reproductive Conditions:

PMS Symptoms: Headache, mood swings, intense cramps, fatigue, tender breasts, nausea, bloating, cravings. These symptoms may occur a few days before your cycle begins.

Infertility: When you have been trying to conceive for one year or more and haven't been successful.

Menopause: It marks the end of your menstrual cycle and usually occurs in a woman's mid 40s or 50s. Symptoms of menopause include hot flashes, irritability, difficulty sleeping, sweating, anxiety, and discomfort during sex.

Uterine Fibroids: Growths on uterus, long periods, heavy bleeding, pelvic pain; there also may be no symptoms at all.

Ovarian Cysts: Fluid filled growths that are usually small and harmless. Some cysts prolong their stay may cause conflict resulting in rupture, pain during intercourse, bloating, pelvic pain, irregular period and/or digestive issues.

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): Hormonal imbalance that can result in cysts to form on ovaries. Symptoms may include excessive body hair, irregular, abnormal or absence of menstrual cycle, heavy bleeding, acne, and infertility.

Endometriosis: A condition in which the tissue that lines the uterus, grows outside the uterus. Symptoms may include infertility, pelvic pain, menstrual cramps, irregular or abnormal period, heavy bleeding. This can range from mild to severe, depending on each woman.

My Journey

My journey began January 15,2024. I began taking 2 particular types of herbal capsules, which were dandelion leaf/root capsules and my herbal blends, Women's BearthRight capsules, Beet Anemia capsules. It was more like a challenge than a journey because I abstained from a lot of the things I love. My period at the time was heavy for the first few days, then lighter on the last 4 days. My entire cycle lasted 7 days 🙄 So annoying. I consumed a lot less processed sugar. Instead, I ate nature's candy, FRUIT and abstained from food for a certain amount of time after waking up. This was only 2 weeks before my next period started. I wasn't expecting to see significant results, but ultimately, I saw a big reduction in the heavy bleeding and my cycle went from 7 days, down to 5 days. I also began eating more leafy greens specifically beet root leaves and dandelion leaves. After maintaining the same routine for approximately 60 days, I noticed improved outcomes with each menstrual cycle. Currently, my periods are lighter and have a duration of four days. Your journey does not have to look like mine, but these are simple lifestyle changes that can be done at your own discretion.
