Female Tonic has a number of uses but overall it is a great hormone enhancer. Some of its uses include fertility enhancing, painful or irregular periods, PCOS, and menopausal symptoms. This tonic contains herbs that help to warm the reproductive organs and has a mild anti-spasmodic action on uterine muscles. It also acts as a uterine cleanser which helps to remove incompletely flushed menstrual fluids from month to month. One of the herbs contained in this tonic, Mexican Wild Yam, is one of the best herbs to help regulate the menstrual cycle because it contains the steroid diosgenin. This steroid is 75% similar to the hormone molecules of estrogen and progesterone. These in turn work to supply the ovaries with required hormones. Additionally, the Mexican Wild Yam helps to alleviate severe hormonal fluctuations of menopause and PMS.
There are a number of contraindications with this tonic so it is very important that you speak with a Maya Abdominal Therapy practitioner so they can review each of these with you. The Female Tonic should not be used in conjunction with any Chinese herbs, birth control, IVF related hormones, hormone replacement therapy, pregnancy or breast feeding.
