The hypothalamic pituitary gonadal axis (HPG), which plays a critical role in development of body systems including immune and reproductive systems all of which need to be in balance for optimum functioning of the body, mind, and spirit. Modern mechanisms of herbal remedy focus on adjusting immune dysfunction, regulating abnormal activity in the hypothalamicpituitary- adrenal (HPA) axis and serving as an antioxidant. Some herbs nourish the HPA axis and promotes adrenal, thyroid and reproductive function.

(HPG) axis is activated, leading to increases in luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and sex steroids (testosterone and estradiol) levels. The HPG axis, which regulates gonadal steroid production, is a multiple level hormonal system involving brain and pituitary with feed forward and feedback elements.
