Traditional Chinese Medicine does not recognize menopause as one particular syndrome, instead it may assist in the symptoms that may occur at this time.

Menopausal symptoms occur due the body trying to adapt to the decreasing amounts of oestrogen. Symptoms are varied and can include; Hot flushes, night sweats, sweating, trouble sleeping, fatigue, mood swings, irritability, poor memory, palpitations, dizziness, indigestion, joint pain, sore lower back, itchy skin, dry hair and nails, vaginal dryness and itchiness, painful intercourse.

As there is an oestrogen deficiency associated with menopause, oestrogen replacement therapy is often used, called HRT. Recently, there have been many discussions about the side effects of long-term use of HRT. Many women have been seeking and turning to more alternative and natural therapies for support.
