Chinese herbal medicine can be indispensable for women as they navigate through the changes related to menopause.
As the body prepares for the cessation of menses, hormones can fluctuate widely, sometimes leaving the woman feeling like her body is no longer her own. This can lead to mood swings, insomnia and high stress. Likewise, hormone fluctuations can create uncomfortable symptoms such as joint pain, low libido, vaginal dryness, poor memory, hot flashes and night sweats, to name a few.
As the process continues and estrogen declines, the risk of osteoporosis and Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is commonly used to reduce these symptoms. However, while HRT is a useful option for many women, there are inherent risks associated with its use. For those women who wish to lessen those risks, or those for whom HRT is not an option, Chinese medicine is a valuable alternative.
