I’ve lately sorta landed on the idea that my adrenals needed a little help. Just some fatigue that I can’t seem to lose. Also, in nearing menopause, I’ve been feeling the edges of pms symptoms a lot (like 24/7 almost). And feeling like..is this PMS ever going to ever stop?? Please don’t let this be permanent, Lord. (Yes, I know. That’s a bit over-reacting, but…… )
So, to maybe help some, I created what I’ve dubbed “Adrena-Pausal Tea”. It’s made from equal measures of Stinging Nettle, Oatstraw, Horsetail, with a few Rosehips thrown in.
Stinging Nettle —Energy! Nettle is chock full of vitamins and minerals and is the perfect base that we’ve used in many of our teas. No, it doesn’t sting once it’s dried. And it’s a wonderful ally for nourishing and strengthening the kidneys and adrenals. It’s very hydrating, and can reduce fatigue and improve stamina. Is great for stabilizing blood sugar, reducing headaches, supporting the immune system, heals digestion and the nerves. Overall energizing for the hormonal systems. Helps normalize weight, and nourishes the cardio systems.
Oatstraw —Eases tension! Oh man. You know that “I’m gonna rip your face off” feeling that accompanies pms too often?? Yeah, Oatstraw helps with that. (Actually, just plain oatmeal can too if you don’t have the tea). Other pluses include: building strong bones, relieving depression and emotional uproar (uhm, yeah☺️), stabilizing blood sugar, reducing cholesterol and risk of heart disease. Can help reduce hemorrhoids and varicose veins. Nourishes the nerves, helps you sleep, eases the bladder and incontinence, reduces duration of headaches.–
Horsetail —One of my all-time favorite herbs. I tend to slip Horsetail (also known as Shavegrass) into as many tea blends as possible. It’s very relaxing. It’s overflowing with silica and glycosides (not entirely sure what those are, but they’re very good?) which nourish the hormones, heart, and bones. It reduces bloating and helps with menstrual flooding. Helps strengthen veins and arteries, eases hot flashes. It increases energy and reduces fatigue.
Rosehips —I tossed a handful of these into the mix for an added boost of vitamin c and to give the tea a tiny hint of fruity taste.
I brew the tea in a quart jar in the evening, let it sit overnight to make a strong infusion, and then drink a mug in the mornings with my breakfast. It pretty much tastes like regular tea. I drink it unsweetened, but you can add whatever sweet makes you happy. The quart of tea will last about 3 mornings. I’ve been on it for about a week and a half now, and I can already feel it doing its thing. I missed a cup today and I could feel the anger creeping back up. I’ve also noticed that I’m not losing as much hair? which is another menopausal thing.
We’d love to sell this on the internet, but alas, it’s not legal to do so (we don’t have the very pricey permits our State requires), but follow the links to find suggestions on Amazon for what to purchase so you can make your own Adrenal-Pausal Tea. If “The Change” is drawing near, and PMS and other symptoms are over the top, you’ll not regret it.
