MENOPAUSE and Chinese medicine

Just when you think you are done with your monthly discomfort – here start the sweating and hot flushes .. or do they?

During menopause, the body’s cooling mechanism (Yin) gets out of synch; the body doesn’t understand anymore how much internal cooling it has to provide as the monthly natural Yin regulation has stopped;

So the body tries out different short cuts: a hot flush to quickly get rid of excess heat;

alternatively, it opens the pores to vent some heat out via the skin (sweating);

depending on your body type, you might experience one more than the other;

If your body finds it hard to find its new equilibrium, you might want acupuncture and herbs to re-balance your Yin (and your emotions) quicker.
