Calcium and Magnesium
Female body needs to have a good balance of calcium and magnesium, it is vital. These two elements will calm and nourish your immune system, give you lots of energy and greatly improve your sleep.

Evening Primrose Oil
Evening primrose oil is a fabulous resource for women’s health as it contains a high concentration of a fatty acid called GLA and it is this fatty acid that is responsible for amazing healing properties of this plant.

This makes it a valuable medicinal herb. The gamma-linoleic acid, linoleic acid and other nutrients in this oil are essential for cell structure and improve the elasticity of the skin. These important fatty acids help to regulate hormones and improve nerve function aiding problems ranging from PMS to migraine headaches. The hormone balancing effect is essential for a healthy breast tissue.

Moringa oleifera is another wonderful resource of nature that is said to be able to treat over 300 diseases and health conditions. Africans highly revered this tree and called it “never die” or “miracle tree”.
Moringa oleifera contains a rare combination of zeatin (a potent antioxidant), quercetin (a flavonoid known for its ability to neutralize free radicals and relieve inflammation), caffeoylquinic acid (another powerful anti-inflammatory compound), beta-sitosterol (a nutrient superstar that blocks cholesterol formation or build-up and is an anti-inflammatory agent for the body), and kaempferol (an important nutrient that promotes healthy cellular function).
Interestingly, moringa oleifera provides 36 natural anti-inflammatory agents and contains 46 different antioxidants.
According to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s website, “In vitro and animal studies indicate that the leaf, seed, and root extracts of Moringa Oleifera have anticancer, hepatoprotective, hypoglycemic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral effects. They may also protect against Alzheimer’s disease, stomach ulcers, help lower cholesterol levels, and promote wound healing. It is a powerful detoxifying agent and a great boost for the immune system.
The leaves of this amazing tree contain 7 times the vitamin C found in oranges, 4 times the calcium in milk, 4 times the vitamin A in carrots, 2 times the protein of yogurt, 25 times the iron in spinach, and 3 times the potassium in bananas.
The leaves of Moringa Oleifera are available as a powder supplement on the market as well as tinctures and oil.
The oil has no smell nor taste and is safe to use for dental inflammations and to heal injuries. I personally used it on my daughter when she had a teeth injury and I could not believe how fast it all healed.
Wild yam is another powerhouse for women’s health. It is known for its hormone balancing ability. Wild Yam contains plant hormone precursors which help in the production and balancing of progesterone and estrogen.

Wild yam is known as a stimulant that increases bile flow, helping to relieve hepatic congestion, bilious colic and even gallstones.
It is a great resource for overall liver health and a potent anti-inflammatory agent, which makes it a useful herb when treating rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory conditions of the bowel . The diuretic effect of wild yam, in combination with the antispasmodic action, soothes painful conditions of the urinary tract. Research shows that wild yam root’s ability to lower blood cholesterol levels and lower blood pressure indirectly helps the liver to increase its efficiency and reduce stress.
One of the best ways to use it is tinctures: by itself or in combination with other herbs like Female Balance Herbal Extract by EnerHealth.

Even USDA admits that oregano oil has such a strong action against germs that it could easily fight Salmonella and E. coli. This makes it a great thing to have when dining out. Oregano oil is literally loaded with vital nutrients like magnesium and zinc and vitamins C and E. It is pretty high in iron, calcium, potassium, copper, manganese, and niacin. Oregano oil is also known for antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties.
Other benefits of oregano oil include: weight loss, immune booster, alleviates sinus infection and colds, helps with yeast and parasitic and urinary tract infections, kills staphylococcus and makes a perfect natural insect repellent.
Some recent studies show that oregano was the most powerful of four essential oils (sage, ginseng, and stevia) at killing all six different cancer types, including cervical, breast, leukemia, lung, and colon cancer. Scientists were surprised to discover that oregano almost completely depletes cancer cells of their glutathione which is an important antioxidant they need to survive. Without this antioxidant cancer cells become highly vulnerable to oxidation and die very fast.

I used it during and after pregnancy but I’d definitely consult a midwife or doctor before taking any herb while pregnant.
