Drinking Tea Balanced My Hormones–Here’s Everything You Need to Know

Toward the end of 2019, I decided that I wanted to get pregnant. I was 34 years old at the time, but quickly approaching the mile-marker that would earn me the horrific (and outdated) label that all pregnant people receive after turning 35: “geriatric.” Suffice it to say, I was nervous about conception, so I took it upon myself to deep-dive into the science of fertility. What I unearthed made me seethe with rage.

Not because the outlook was grim (quite the contrary), but because most of what I discovered I had never learned in school. Throughout all my health classes growing up, the breadth of hormonal health had been almost entirely encapsulated in a video of a live birth and a few tips on how to discreetly use a tampon. The audacity. On the other side of my anger, however, was hope.

And a renewed sense of awe for the human body. In my journey to get pregnant, I worked with a functional nutritionist to enhance my diet and stumbled upon fertility teas designed by Ariele Myers, a licensed herbalist, board certified acupuncturist, and fertility specialist who founded the company, Wisdom of the Womb. In that time, I experienced two shocking takeaways: 1.

hormones affect so much more than fertility, and 2. tea works fast. I reached out to Myers for her take on how to embrace hormonal health and to answer all your (and my) burning questions about how tea can be used to heal hormones.   Before trying to conceive, the biggest step I’d taken for my hormonal health was to stop taking birth control after nearly 15 years of use. I worked with an acupuncturist and took Chinese herbs to help get my cycle back on track.
