Although the exact cause of adenomyosis is not fully understood, nor is there a formal cure for the condition, excess levels of estrogen are known to be an exacerbating factor. Vitex is a dried fruit from the “chaste tree” and is famed for its effects on hormonal levels in the body. More specifically, vitex can mirror the effects of other hormones like progesterone and testosterone, countering the effects of excess estrogen before it can trigger adenomyosis or make the condition any worse. Vitex is a bit hard to find, but should be available in exotic import stores and specialty herbalists.
