Sage is an antioxidant, popular with women during and after the menopause which also supports healthy digestion and natural defences.
Sage has many applications, but it is most commonly used for excessive perspiration and mental function. Excessive perspiration can occur because of thyroid disorders (thyrotoxicosis), infection or during the menopause. Sage offers relief from perspiration caused by the menopause and thyroid disorders. Fevers, caused by infection, are part of the healing process and should be left to develop within reason. The endocrine system controls hormonal activity within the body and is made up of three systems which need to be balanced to avoid unwanted changes occurring. The three systems are the stress mechanism (controlled by the adrenal glands), the hormone production centre (the pituitary gland in the brain) and the thermostat and hormone release trigger (the hypothalamus at the base of the brain). Imbalance within this system during the menopause can cause hot sweats experienced by many women at this time. Sage has a rebalancing effect on the hypothalamus by triggering hormone release from pituitary and ovaries which relieves the hot sweats.
