The scope of the red brush – treatment failure in women and men, therapy of uterine fibroids, mastitis, erosion, polycystic ovary syndrome, menstrual disorders (amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, oligohymenophora) and diseases of the genitourinary system.
Red brush and hormones
Age-related changes in the body can cause a decrease in production of sex hormones, which increases the burden on other organs of the endocrine system – the thyroid and adrenal glands.
This can cause a hormonal imbalance which has many symptoms:
- Express weight loss with good appetite;
- Sweating, increased body temperature, heart palpitations;
- Tremor, or numbness in the extremities;
- Increased fatigue and drowsiness, or, conversely, insomnia;
- Quick weight gain with the same diet;

- Menstrual disorders: anovulation, amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, oligohymenophora and others;
- The deterioration of the skin: itching, peeling, rashes, stretch marks;
- Disruption of the sexual system: frigidity, impotence, infertility, etc.;
Jump blood pressure, hypertension;
- The decrease in visual acuity.
Hormone replacement therapy that is often prescribed in such cases, may disrupt the natural production of hormones and make a person dependent on drugs for the rest of my life. Phytohormones found in plants, are a good alternative to hormonal drugs and have less side effects. Red brush or cold Rhodiola is used for the treatment of diseasesreproductive system, organs of internal secretion and abnormalities of the heart. Its action is to normalize the natural production of estrogen and progesterone in the imbalance caused by dysfunction of the endocrine glands.
EstrogenEstrogen is a hormone that is produced in women and men, but in the male body in normal quantity is minimal, and when excess production can cause cancer. In women estrogen is produced more because it is necessary for the normal functioning of the reproductive system.
This hormone regulates the development of the fetus during pregnancy, is involved in the formation of sexual organs and bone. Estrogen helps in proper deposition of fatty tissue to create a feminine figure, reduces the accumulation of muscle mass, which women normally should be less than men.
In men, estrogen prevents apoptosis (programmed cell death) of sperm, which increases their ability to fertilize.
With a lack of estrogen observed these symptoms:
Sweating and bouts of headaches, sensation of heat and tides – occur frequently in anticipation of the climax due to the restructuring of the hormonal system;
- The decrease in firmness and elasticity of the skin and formation of wrinkles as a result;
- Vaginal dysbiosis.
Phytoestrogens Rhodiola cold and normalize estrogen levels and remove the symptoms of menopause – drowsiness, nervousness, insomnia and mood swings.
Progesterone in the female body is produced by the corpus luteum and adrenal glands, in men, is synthesized in the seminal vesicles. It is necessary for the regulation of the menstrual cycle and the course of pregnancy, promotes proper development of the fetus, prevents breast and fibrous formation in the breast. Under the influence of progesterone the endometrium of the uterus is formed, under reduced levels of this hormone the fertilized egg can not gain a foothold, you also increase the likelihood of miscarriage in the first trimester of pregnancy. Progesterone regulates uterine muscles, blood rheology, the process of childbirth and lactation.
Symptoms of lack of progesterone:
- Nervousness and irritability, mood swings, headache – are often observed before menstruation when the progesterone level falls;
- Soreness in the breast, swellings and tumors;
- The failure to conceive, infertility;
- Menstrual disorders: amenorrhea, anovulatory cycles;
- Swelling of the face and extremities.
For the normalization of hormonal balance when low levels of progesterone, take the infusion of Rhodiola cold in the second phase of the menstrual cycle.

- Emotional shock, chronic stress, exhaustion;
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome, cysts, tumors and other gynecological diseases.
Red brush helps to restore reproductive health in the case that the reason for the lack of ovulation is a hormonal imbalance, polycystic ovarian syndrome due to excess follicle-stimulating hormone, inflammatory diseases of the genital organs and the lack of estradiol, which the egg attaches to the endometrium. Red brush helps restore the balance of estrogen and progesterone – the hormones responsible for maturation of follicles out of the egg and the further course of pregnancy in case of fertilization.
Hormones red brush, sage and upland uterus are an effective tool for the treatment of infertility, as contribute to the restoration of the menstrual cycle and stimulate ovulation.

The endometrium necessary for proper formation of the inner surface of the uterus and the nutrition of the embryo, and during menstruation ensures the removal of unfertilized egg. Uncontrolled proliferation of endometrial cells, arising in endometriosis leads to the formation of polyps, prevents the egg from attaching to the walls of the uterus.
Treatment of endometriosis is to eliminate the underlying causes of the disease – low levels of progesterone. Modern hormonal therapy carries a risk for the patient, as it is difficult to calculate the correct dose of hormones, plus sex glands may cease to produce its own hormones.
In endometriosis, especially in the early stages of the disease, is much more effective to use the herbal remedies on the basis of the red brush, which has the property of regulating hormonal balance by phytoestrogens contained in the roots of this plant. Plant hormones are much softer and are not recognized by the body's own hormones, therefore, the mode of operation of the sex glands is not oppressed, but rather restored.

Androgens – a group of male sex hormones affecting the development and operation of many systems of the body, forming secondary sexual characteristics and regulate the functioning of the relevant authorities. The prostate gland is responsible for the quality of the seed secret (the presence of immunoglobulins, citric acid, vitamins, enzymes and other vital nutrients) and depends entirely on effects of androgens. As they grow older men the synthesis of androgens increases, which enhances proliferation of prostate cells. Some researchers put it first place in the list of causes of prostate. In addition, the growth of prostate cells is influenced by estrogen, or the wrong ratio of these hormones. In any case, the treatment of enlarged prostate must begin with hormonal regulation. To implement it using pharmaceutical hormonal preparations is risky and unreliable, as artificial hormones weaken the function of the glands of the patient, and the wrong dose will only aggravate the existing imbalance.

Among the products of secretion of thyroid hormones are also present which depend on the utilization of glucose in cells, stimulating the respiratory and cardiac centers. Therefore, the maintenance of a healthy thyroid gland is so important to any organism.
The complete work of this endocrine organ, mainly provided by such trace elements as zinc, iodine and molybdenum. All these substances are components of red brush.
Oddly enough, but your own immune system is often the cause of disorders in the thyroid. This is due to the fact that some of its parts are perceived as something alien, which requires the destruction (as, for example, infected or cancerous cells). As a result of the activities of the immune system with such disorders produced by the body antibodies directed to the thyroid gland and cause damage, forcing the body to react to excessive secretion of hormones, or simply destroying it. Red brush can help in this case – it contains powerful antioxidants that bring toxins from tissues and cells: ascorbic acid, selenium, and gum.
On their own practical experience of many healers-herbalists and their patients convinced that funds from Rhodiola cold do well with these thyroid diseases, like hypothyroidism, goiter and inflammation.
