If you’re going through perimenopause and are wondering how our Menopause herbs may be correct for you at this stage, that’s a sensible question. We hand it to TCM Doctor Lauren Curtain to discuss from a TCM perspective.
“Every woman’s experience of perimenopause can be different however there are some common symptoms during this transition phase. Symptoms can include hot flushes, night sweats, menstrual migraines, difficulty sleeping/insomnia, sudden weight gain, anxiety, short or long menstrual cycles, irregular cycles, heavy clotted periods, forgetfulness, brain fog, heart palpitations, joint pain, mood swings, vaginal dryness, low libido, hair loss, hair dryness, and UTIs. We have hormone receptors on every cell in our body, so changes to these hormones can have wide-ranging effects!
The plants included in our Menopause Herbs blend have been specifically chosen for their cooling and Yin & Blood nourishing properties. The herbs that are cooling in nature (Bo He, Green tea, dandelion) help to quell excessive heat that may be manifesting as insomnia, hot flushes, night sweats, menstrual changes, etc. Wu Wei Zi is particularly astringing and a wonderful herb included in this blend to stop excessive sweating/night sweats in its tracks. The Yin and Blood nourishing herbs (Gou Qi Zi & Wu Wei Zi) help to nourish the Yin and Blood as our natural production of Yin and Blood declines”.
