Non Estrogenic Herbs

non estrogenNon-estrogenic herbs are increasingly being used as a natural alternative to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). This is because they achieve the same results as phytoestrogenic herbs but without the unwanted side effects. In countries such as France, Japan, and Germany the use of non-estrogenic herbs is more widespread and doctors often prescribe such remedies to menopausal women.

Phytoestrogenic herbs, such as ginseng and red clover, work by replacing natural human hormones with plant-like substitutes. Despite being regarded as an alternative to HRT, phytoestrogenic herbs can cause serious side effects.

Non-estrogenic herbs work in the same way as phytoestrogenic herbs, addressing hormonal problems, but they do this without producing side effects. Non-estrogenic herbs do this by stimulating the growth of the body's own hormones, as opposed to introducing artificial ones. To understand how this process works, the term 'non-estrogen' must first be explained.

What Does Non-Estrogen Mean?

non estrogen herbThe term "non-estrogen" refers to a herbs´ ability to treat hormonal problems, without introducing estrogen-like, artificial hormones into the body.

What are Non-Estrogenic Herbs for Menopause?

non estrogen macaAs the name implies, non-estrogenic herbs are plants that don't contain any kind of chemical structure similar to estrogen. There are many varieties of this type of plant but only a few non-estrogenic herbs have the nutrients that can stimulate the endocrine system into balancing hormonal levels. Furthermore, even fewer non-estrogenic herbs have been the subject of serious studies that can confirm these claims. The exact way in which these herbs stimulate the endocrine system is detailed below.

How do Non-Estrogenic Herbs Work?

The endocrine system functions like the nervous system but instead of nerves, it uses blood vessels as information channels. It controls important bodily functions such as metabolism and tissue performance.

Menopause symptoms occur when the body is no longer able to maintain adequate levels of estrogen hormones, resulting in hormonal imbalance. Non-estrogenic herbs for menopause act by stimulating the body to produce the estrogen it needs. In short, non-estrogenic herbs nourish the endocrine system (hormone-producing system) and encourage it to maintain healthy levels of hormones.

In addition to being side effect free, non-estrogenic herbs have other benefits for those suffering from some of the symptoms of menopause. Below is an in depth description of these benefits.
