Rosemary for estrogen excess and hormonal imbalance
Dew of the sea… the beautiful name that Rosemary…Rosmarinus officinalis or more reccently reclassified as Salvia rosmarinus..derives from.🌿🌿🌿
I must admit I used to think of this a a quite benign culinary herbs but the more I use it medicinally the more I realise how potent and powerful it is.💪💪💪
I am currently writing a three part series on hormonal balance and estrogen excess for @herbalacademy and finding out even more research about this incredible plant and way to detoxify estrogens.
Did you know...rosemary can activate liver enzymes that promote safe detoxification of estrogens. It enhances the conversion of 2-hydroxy esyrogens, the good estrogens. This in turn can lead to reduced harmful estrogens and metabolites…amazing !
This is super useful during peri menopause, with fibroids, ovarian cysts, PMT, heavy periods, and many other imbalances.
(Note never take this in pregnancy and get professional advice if taking medications).
This is also super important in the detoxification of xeno oestrogens..chemicals in plastics that surround us and mimic our own endogenous hormones binding to estrogen receptors and disrupt hormone balance.
To add to this , rosemary is a powerhouse of anti oxidants and helps increase cerebral circulation and improves memory and cognitive function. Very useful 🙂👌👌👌
It is my current favourite herb! NB this often changes daily as there are so many truly amazing herbs out there. 🌱🌻🌼🌿
You can have it in food as a herbal vinegar or oxymel as a tincture or capsules.
It is always best to consult with a professional herbalist when using herbs for specific conditions or symptoms.
