I used to talk about this herb so much in the past. It is time to bring it up again. Chasteberry/Vitex has over the years helped me with PMS symptoms but there are many other benefits from this herb.
I used to suffer from cramps, irritability, and headaches, Chasteberry helped me. Over the past few years, a week before menstruation I develop sneezing and allergy attacks for two days. I researched it and found that elevated or a decreased estrogen can cause this. So I started using Chasteberry/Vitex again, which again helped me. Hormonal imbalances can trigger all kinds of inflammation and other autoimmune responses.
Here are other issues Chasteberry/Vitex can help you with :
May shrink uterine fibroids– regulates hormonal imbalances, hence slowing down the growth of fibroids
Alleviates PMS symptoms
Reduces menopausal symptoms
May reduce endometriosis symptoms- may decrease/alleviate inflammation
I am not a doctor, I am just posting a herb that has helped me and others that I suggested it to. Consult your doctor before trying these herbs.
