Homeobotanicals are a safe, effective and easy to use way of bringing your body back into balance naturally. This blog post introduces you to some of my favourite blends for supporting women with peri-menopausal symptoms.
Homeobotanicals are organically grown and homeopathically prepared blends of herbs. They are known as 'Homebotanicals', 'HBs' or ‘the herbal drops’!
Each Homeobotanical blend is made from a carefully selected group of trophorestorative herbs. This means the herbs support a specific organ or system in the body.
Once combined into a blend, the herbs are then diluted. This makes the herbal drops very safe to use. It also makes them more effective – that’s how homeopathic remedies are prepared too.
There are more than 40 Homeobotanical blends that I can choose from to make an individualised bottle of herbal drops for you. I often pick three, but I can pick up to five different blends to make your own personal blend.
These are some of my favourite blends for supporting women with peri-menopausal symptoms.
HB Female addresses menstrual irregularities and the effects of hormonal treatment.
Ingredients: Black Cohosh, Blue Cohosh, Chaste Tree, Cramp Bark, Dong Quai, Motherwort, Pasque Flower, Shepherd’s Purse, Squaw Vine and Wild Yam.
HB Female supports the endocrine system and helps to regulate and balance female hormones. It can help with period problems such as PMT, heavy flow, pain and irregular cycles. HB Female also supports fertility issues.
HB Female + is a wonderful blend to support you during the peri-menopause.
It has the same ingredients as HB Female with the addition of peony.
Peony acts on the balance between the pituitary gland, the hypothalamus and the ovaries. It helps to balance all the female hormones.
It can help with the common peri-menopausal symptoms of hot flushes, night sweats and irritability.
HB Emotional Stress supports the sympathetic and the para-sympathetic nervous system. [see related post here]
Ingredients: Chamomile, Gentian, Hops, Lavender, Lime Flowers, Oats, Passionflower, Rosemary, Skullcap and Valerian.
HB Emotional Stress is a combination of nervines. These are herbs that restore emotional balance and nourish the nervous system. It can help many common symptoms of anxiety by calming an over-active brain. It can address stress-induced symptoms such as indigestion, hypertension and headaches. It also supports depression, exhaustion and sleep.
HB Emotional Stress can be added to virtually all homeobotanical blends to enhance the effectiveness.
HB Serena, like HB Emotional Stress, supports the central nervous system. It is an anti-dote to modern living!
Ingredients: Astralagus, Californian Poppy, Rhodiola, Vervain (Verbena), Withania (Ashwaganda) and Zizyphus.
HB Serena is rich in adoptogen herbs. These are herbs that help your body manage stress. Adaptogens protect the body against the excessive demands of busy lives when our technology allows us to ‘on’ and available all the time.
HB Serena promotes rest, relaxation and recovery. It can help with symptoms of anxiety, fatigue, depression and insomnia. HB Serena also supports immune function.
HB Cerebra is a trophorestorative for the brain and central nervous system. It supports brain function and memory.
Ingredients: Bacopa, Cayenne, Ginkgo, Gotu Kola, Hawthorn Leaves, Rosemary and Schisandra.
HB Cerebra stimulates your brain and allows you to think again! It can be useful alongside blends such as HB Female + to support brain fog during perimenopause. It’s also useful for anyone who is studying or has exams.
