Women usually experience menopause between the ages of 45-55.
As the ovaries age, they produce fewer hormones related to menstruation and eggs are released less frequently, eventually resulting in the end of periods and a woman’s reproductive years.1
Although menopause can cause a vast number of different symptoms, some of the more common are hot flushes, night sweats and vaginal dryness.
Traditional Chinese medicine and menopause
From the perspective of TCM, menopausal symptoms are often characterised by an excess of heat (as occurs in hot flushes and night sweats) and/or dryness (for example as it affects the vaginal tissue), suggesting an underlying deficiency of kidney Yin (female energy) all of which can be relieved with herbs such as anemarrhena and dong quai according to traditional use in TCM.2
According to TCM, the kidney is responsible for reproduction and menstruation, as well as the transition between life stages including into menopause. By supporting healthy kidney Yin, with a herb like anemarrhena, hot flushes, night sweats and vaginal dryness can be reduced.3
Relief for hot flushes
Dong quai is one of the primary herbs in Menopause Heat Relief and is traditionally used in TCM to reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes.
In TCM, anemarrhena is regarded as have cooling properties with the ability to clear heat, while at the same time moistening the body’s tissues. This reflects its traditional use for the relief of menopausal hot flushes, night sweats and vaginal dryness in TCM.
