Menopause

Menopause marks the end of a woman’s menstruation and her reproductive lifespan. It usually occurs between the ages of 35 and 55. The hormonal changes that occur before and after the cessation of ovulation and menstruation are thought to reflect the aging process. Imbalances in the hormonal interplay between the hypothalamus, the pituitary, and the ovaries cause the many, varied symptoms that make up the menopausal syndrome. These include irregular cycles, missed periods, hot flashes, night sweats, palpitations, emotional fragility and depression, headaches, memory loss, insomnia, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, dry skin.

However, these same alterations in hormonal chemistry are also felt to contribute to the major disorders of aging for women – the atherosclerosis underlying heart disease and stroke and the loss of bone mass leading to osteoporosis and increased rates of bone fracture.When passing through menopause, the ovaries lose ability to produce estrogen and progesterone. The hypothalamus tries to adjust for this loss by temporarily increasing levels of follicle stimulating hormone [FSH] and luteinizing hormone [LH], hormones that stimulate estrogen production. Also, the adrenal glands and fat cells take over some level of estrogen production. Many women pass through this period of adjustment with few symptoms.

However, menopausal syndrome is epidemic among American women because a number of contributing factors keep the varied regulating hormones in imbalance:

Uncomfortable symptoms that arise as the ovaries lose function;
Increased risk of heart disease that accompanies declining estrogen production, and;
Accelerated loss of bone density that occurs after cessation of menstrual periods
A number of studies have shown that advanced herbal medicine formulas can aid in improving the function of the glands and organs that control ovulation and menstruation, and by enhancing blood circulation.

Menopause in Chinese Medicine

 Menopause is a progress from middle age to old age, according symptoms like hot flash, anxiety, discontinues sleep, dry mouth, fatigue. This is a natural part of a woman’s life, so is man’s life (usually it happens 5-10 years later than women do).

 In Chinese Medicine, we see menopause is caused by decreasing of Yin energy store. When the Yin energy is decreasing, but the Yang energy is still remain at its general level, this is how the imbalance formed. People are suffering from the menopausal syndromes during the imbalance period. Gradually, Yang energy is falling to same level to match the Yin energy within a few years, then the Yin and Yang are rebalanced but the level are much lower than the middle age balance level, this is how old age comes, people present as elders but the menopause symptoms are disappeared.

What Chinese medicine can do?

Chinese medicine categorise herbs into different types of Yin and different types of Yang according to herb’s nature characters. Therefore, to prescribe the certain types of Yin group Herbs to nourish Yin energy which the patient is lacking of.
