A herbal or homeopathic female hormone stabilizer is intended for use in any condition where regulating the female hormone levels will ease the associated signs and symptoms. These conditions may include polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), endometriosis, dysmenorrhea (painful periods) or an irregular menstrual cycle. A natural female hormone stabilizer should not be used in conjunction with an oral contraceptive or any other hormone replace or modulating therapy.
This article provides the formula for three hormone modulators, the indications and directions of use.
- Herbal Female Hormone Modulator
- Homeopathic Female Hormone Modulator for older women
- Homeopathic Female Hormone Modulator for younger women
It is advisable that you consult with both your gynecologist and complementary health practitioner before commencing this treatment.
Herbal Female Hormone Modulator
The herbs can be used in powder form or in tincture. The following herbs may be useful when preparing a herbal complex for regulating the female sex hormone levels.
- Vitex agnus castus (Chaste berry) – 30% of total volume (either for powder or tincture preparation)
- Potentilla anserina (Silverweed, also known as Argentina anserina) – 20% or replace with Chaste berry or Dong quai (Angelica sinensis) if Silverweed is not available.

Discontinue the herbal tincture during menses (period) and commence once you have finished your period. Women under 50kg (110 lbs) should reduce the dose to 20 drops while women over 90 kg (198 lbs) may increase the dose to 40 drops or more, depending on body weight.
Discontinue the herbal complex immediately if you notice any aggravation of your symptoms or severe clotting and period pain during menses. A herbal female hormone stabilizer can be used safely with a homeopathic female hormone complex.
