A PMS symptom relief extract that is also great for postpartum recovery. This is meant to be taken several days before the start of your cycle and throughout or after birth until birth pains have subsided. More or less can be taken depending on symptoms. I have included some information about PMS and its causes as well as some tips at in this description.
Begin taking 1-2 ml daily 4 days prior to the estimated first first day of your menstrual cycle. Continue to take throughout your period and take more as needed depending on severity of symptoms. You may take several times a day if needed.
For postpartum care, take 1-2 ml up to 3 times a day until pains have subsided. This extract will help healing and recovery, encourage hormone balance, renew nutrient stores, support energy levels and help with afterbirth pains

Schisandra Berry: These are powerful and expensive and well worth it! This is the element of this extract that should help with those wild emotions and irregular mood swings. The therapeutic uses for schisandra include depression, fatigue, labor, stress, ataxia and psychosis. It is used as a general tonic and a powerful adaptogenic herb that normalizes whatever is out of whack. This plant encourages revival of liver damage, improves concentration and stamina. In Chinese medicine it is regarded as the quintessence of the five elemental energies. It may reduce tension, beautify skin, promote circulation, improve digestion, calm anger, improve kidney health, reduce fatigue, improve immune health and ease PMS.
Dandelion: I used dandelion in this extract for its diuretic properties to alleviate water retention and bloating. Dandelion leaf is a specific herb for kidney and urinary problems and one of the safest diuretics there is.Unlike synthetic diuretics, however, dandelion leaf does not deplete the body of potassium. In fact, they are high in potassium. It is high in plant estrogens and an outstanding healing herb. It is very effective for menstrual bloating, PMS and breast tenderness. The leaves support kidney function to eliminate excess water and toxins. They are high in vitamins and minerals such as A, C, Iron, Calcium and potassium. This is yet another herb with no known toxicity reported and safe for all ages and stages.
PMS is a general term used to refer to a broad array of symptoms including water retention, depression, nervousness, irritability, swollen tender breasts, cramps, menstrual pain, joint pain, acne, cravings and more. All of these stem from an over-sensitization to sex hormones produced by our bodies. In this extract I endeavored to ease as many of these as I could without using any harsh herbs with side effects or contraindications.
For many this time of the month brings about intense anxiety in anticipation of how it will disrupt daily life. (Oftentimes the recurrence of painful symptoms is due to past abuse.) These symptoms indicate an imbalance of hormones estrogen, prolactin, adrenal and thyroid hormones. Your monthly cycle shouldn't and doesn't have to be so horrible. Mine used to be heavy for days and days, intense cramping, swelling and inflammation, back and hip pain and it was terribly irregular. I won't go into my personal history here but in the past years, I've gotten things much more manageable. Hopefully I can help you too and this extract is just a start. I also highly recommend drinking NORA tea daily.
Much of this is reliant on liver health, actually. Estradiol and estrone are the potentially detrimental components of estrogen. They are typically converted into estriol by the liver. This is what combats the negative effects of estradiol and estrone. Liver health and healthy endocrine glands (adrenal and thyroid in particular) are crucial for this process. If the liver is not in good working order, it becomes overburdened and inefficient. Its not able to handle the levels of sex hormones released during menstruation and ovulation. This results in a self poisoning system that is congested with excess hormones, most notably estrogen components, that wreak havoc within the system and lead to PMS and reproductive problems.
