Profile of evening primrose (Oenothera).
Updated Super Bazongas. Removed lavender and fenugreek from menstruation. Removed suggestions for late premenstrual phase. If you have estrogen deficiency, avoid taking herbs for menstruation. Do not repeat a herb combination, until there is growth.
Latest update, removed lavender from early part of proliferative phase. Its use is not recommended with fenugreek during this phase. Lavender certainly works once estrogen increases for proliferative phase. Fenugreek can only be used before estrogen rises. Lavender and fenugreek don't work for everyone during early proliferative phase.
Breast Development and Endocrinology was also recently updated.
Expecting mint (less than 250mg of solid form) with less than half the amounts each of hops and wild yam to work for menstruation. Fennel might possibly replace wild yam, and milk thistle might possibly replace hops. Herbs that sensitize hormone receptors behave like multipliers of the current hormonal state. During menstruation, androgen production by the ovary is heavy, so herbs that upregulate ER-beta will cause more androgenic responses. Hops targets ER-alpha, and it raises prolactin, meaning less androgenic actions on the reproductive tract. However, if hops is used alone without a herb that is estrogenic on ER-alpha, it will also cause androgenic responses. Mint and clover, for instance, will cause breast growth, and unwanted body hair, suggesting this combination is estrogenic on the breasts, but androgenic on the ovaries.
It is also possible that the combination of mint, hops and wild yam have worked during menstruation with the presence of estrogen from birth control pills. Birth control pills and progesterone cream, however, have the potential for increasing androgenic symptoms.
I saw acne as a sign for hop's use for potential breast growth. However, this only applies to secretory phase after a herb like chasteberry, fenugreek or likely suma by association: perhaps for their abilities to promote estrogen synthesis.
Adjusting menstruation herb schedule: removing lavender from it. Hops and spearmint ideally of less than 150mg each have worked in the past, when used together, but this needs to be reconfirmed. A tea bag amount of spearmint is strongly androgenic, unlike smaller amounts. Wild yam in combination only has worked during this phase.
Going to see if fennel can be used in place of wild yam. Wild yam's properties aren't always ideal to replace fennel.
Lavender is only expected to work consistently after mid-proliferative phase, during mid-secretory phase, and early premenstrual phase. Early proliferative phase is when there is no cervical mucus, or when cervical mucus is thick. Lavender has only worked when estrogen levels are dominant. Herbs that sensitize estrogen receptors, but raise prolactin, like hops, won't work during mid-proliferative phase.
Removing herb suggestion at beginning of proliferative phase, but instead suggesting to wait, until schedule can be improved. Keep suggestion of using primrose, to find the time when lavender and fennel can be used.
Removing all herb suggestions past mid-premenstrual phase.
If any dose of the herb schedule doesn't cause positive results with 30 minutes, or at least by the next day, that dose will not be expected to work.
Updated Breast Development and Endocrinology ebook. Old ebook oversimplied roles of FSH and LH. There was a small indication of their different roles, but it was not distinct enough.
Herbs that sensitize estrogen, androgen and progesterone receptors cause different effects depending on the presence of bodily hormones or other herbs. Herbs that upregulate estrogen receptors include: hops, ginseng, lavender and schizandra. Thistle and clover probably upregulate estrogen receptors too. The best time to take these herbs is during mid-secretory phase and early premenstrual phase, after testing if evening primrose oil causes growth. Prolactin increasing herbs like clover, thistle and hops can't be taken during proliferative phase. Lavender and ginseng can be taken during mid-proliferative phase, only if primrose works first for that day.
Update on herbal butt enhancement.
Sunflower seeds do not cause problems if taken during early proliferative phase.
Program blog about an attempt to treat female body hair and female hair loss, and to promote breast enlargement in spite of it.
Low estrogen contributes to hot-flashes in women. Hot-flashes are common when luteinizing hormone (LH) is high.
Evening primrose (Oenothera biennis) oil increases estrogen production and has been proven in studies to lower hot-flashes. Oenothera biennis is useful during proliferative phase to increase estrogen for breast enhancement.
The celery family includes several herbs with hormonal properties: angelica (dong quai), anise, caraway, carrots, celery, coriander, cumin, dill, fennel, parsley. These herbs have varying hormonal properties: few are estrogenic. Dill increases the production of progesterone.
Unfortunately, the celery family has a few toxic members that can cause severe permanent injury to the touch and death: hemlock, fool's parsley and hog weed. These deadly plants resemble other members within the celery family.
Be sure you properly identify safe herbs before handling or use.
Gardenia oil increases estradiol, and decreases LH and FSH [perhaps depending on menstrual phase]. Gardenia is best used during mid-proliferative phase for bust enhancement.
Panax ginseng upregulates androgen receptors and estrogen receptors α and β.
Not all herbs that improve symptoms of hot-flashes increase estrogen synthesis, or address the root problem. Common sage (Salvia officinalis) is useful for hot-flashes, but it is not suitable to replace red sage to upregulate estrogen receptors. In large amounts, Salvia officinalis diminishes the ovaries, possibly because of apigenin.
Estrogenic herbs such as ginseng, fennel, schizandra and sage regulate ovarian size and function. My theory is that whether estrogenic herbs diminish or nourish the ovaries depends on whether they are taken during the proliferative and ovulation phases, and in the presence of other present hormones.
Estrogen is naturally the dominant hormone during proliferative phase. When breast growth is caused primarily by progesterone, that is not representative of ovarian growth. The sensitization and function of androgen receptors (AR), estrogen receptors (ER) and aromatase enzymes in the ovaries are equally important for health. When there is a lack of stimulus of androgen or estrogen effects, the ovaries shrink. When either progesterone, androgen or estrogen effects are primarily present, ovarian function diminishes. Estrogen production relies on the presence of androgens, and likewise, when both estrogenic and androgenic circumstances are present, the ovaries perform functionally.
During mid- proliferative phase and ovulation phase, ginseng, fennel and lavender by themselves cause breast growth, which may be a representation of ovarian growth. During other phases, ginseng and fennel taken by themselves cause breast shrinking, which may be associated with ovarian shrinking. Lavender taken outside of proliferative phase requires the use of mint, fenugreek or another androgenic herb for breast growth.
Studies on different species of sage (Salvia) manifest different results of diminishing or improving function of the ovaries. This could be perhaps, because of variations of phytohormones present in different species of sage or by methods of extract. Studies show that fennel, schizandra and ginseng improve ovarian function, but this may be circumstantial, based on the phase of the menstrual cycle and in the presence of other bodily hormones.
Hops (Humulus) upregulates estrogen receptor alpha (ERα). It also increases prolactin levels.
Diosgenin increases bodily estradiol, and it may also be helpful against insulin resistance. Diosgenin is a phytohormone contained in wild yam (Dioscorea). Fenugreek (Trigonella) also contains diosgenin, but it also has other phytochemicals with varying properties.
Hormonal properties of Chasteberry. It is used to lessen breast discomfort, to lessen premenstrual symptoms and to lower prolactin.
The menstrual cycle will be divided into 5 phases, to simplify their timing: Menstruation, Proliferative, Ovulation, Secretory and Premenstrual.
Follicular phase is divided between menstruation and proliferative phase. Menstruation is when the uterus lining is shed. The proliferative phase is from the end of menstruation until ovulation. This is the time when the uterus rebuilds to prepare for potential pregnancy.
Luteal phase has been divided into secretory and premenstrual phase. The secretory phase is when the corpus luteum is present and produces progesterone. Premenstrual phase begins when the corpus luteum disintegrates, and it ends at the beginning of menstruation.
