A friend of mine spayed his female dog recently, and her hormones are going through the roof making her very difficult to live with. I was thinking perhaps some natural herbal supplements might help even them out a bit..... no idea where to start though.

Any help would be appreciated!

What do you mean? What behaviors you are seeing?
If they spayed her then she doesn't have sex hormones any more (no ovaries).
If she is driving the boy dogs crazy and they are trying to hump her then she may have a UTI.

No boy dogs around - she is just humping the pillows in their house, digging and making nests of her bed, etc.

If they spayed her during the false pregnant period then her body thinks she was whelped. All dog have an elevated progesterone after a heat, whether bred or not. If you spay during that period then the rapid drop in progesterone from removing the ovaries will trigger the body to thinking it needs to make milk (which may or may not happen) and the dog feels as if she needs to nest.
Nothing to do but time, it will pass.
