  • I am a 50 year old female (peri-menopausal) looking for an herbal remedy for heavy menstrual bleeding and cramping as my cycles are worsening every month. What can I use to help elevate this pain naturally?

    Thank you for sending in your question and for including specific information that helps me understand a little better what might work best for you. At the age of 50 it is not too unusual for women to have flooding. To reduce the pain of cramping, herbalists might focus first on a cleanse -- this affects the hormones and the heavy bleeding that is tied into cramps. Our Feminine Cleanse is a powder-in-a-packet that mixes easily with water or a smoothie for a gentle but effective daily detox. This sets the stage for your changing hormonal balance to find a new healthy level.

    Meanwhile, there are two herbs I'd recommend for you: the Chaste Tree Berry (Vitex Agnus-Castus), taken daily throughout the month for at least 3 months helps the peri-menopausal journey proceed more smoothly, with less heavy bleeding. This is especially important since your cycles are worsening. The second is a natural, herbal, menstrual cramp relief remedy called Cramp Bark (Viburnum Opulus).

    Your change of life does not have to be painful! I wish you well, and thank you for writing to me.

    Yours,

    Amanda McQuade Crawford
