Healing Menopause Symptoms

What is Menopause?

Menopause is a natural event in a woman’s life which occurs between the ages of 40 and 55. Women who have had surgical removal of the uterus or ovaries are likely to have the experience immediately afterwards. Menopause is the transition period in a woman’s life when the ovaries stop producing eggs, menstrual activity decreases and eventually ceases, and the body decreases the production of the female hormones - estrogen and progesterone.

Common Physical Symptoms during Menopause

All women will have menopause as part of their life. But only women who often tend to feel thirsty are likely to experience some of the following symptoms during her menopause:

o  Hot flashes

o  Higher body temperature

o  Vaginal dryness

o  Depression/moodiness

o  Headache

o   Rapid heart rate

o  Low sex drive

o   Sleeping disturbances

o  Urine leakage

o  Sensation of lump in the throat

o  Weight gain

o   Night sweats

Why Hot Flashes?

A hot flash produces a sudden sensation of intense heat that spreads upwards to the chest, face, and head. Flushing and sweating usually occur as well, followed by a chill. Some women feel their heart beating very fast or hard and feel anxious. Medical studies point out that these hot flashes are due to the sudden drop in estrogen levels during menopause. In Chinese medicine, the low body heat constitution*, which manifests as thirst and dry mouth, makes the body intolerant to further heat produced by the hormonal imbalance. The hot flashes are the result of the combination of low body heat and the heat from hormonal imbalance.


Osteoporosis is a medical condition characterized by the thinning of the bones. Thin bones become weaker and break more easily. Although bones naturally weaken with age in both men and women starting at about age 40, women lose bone mass more rapidly after menopause.

Prevention – Living a Better Life Style

Menopause is a natural and expected part of a woman’s life and cannot be prevented. However, there are ways to reduce or eliminate some of the symptoms. As prevention is the best medicine, women can prevent or lessen the symptoms of menopause by:

o   Practicing relaxed exercises like Tai Chi

o  Going to bed at a reasonable time – by 10:00 pm

o  Avoiding deep fried, grilled or spicy foods

o  Slowing down and decreasing stress

Healing – Renewing Patient’s Life

Patients will experience distinct comfort during each healing session and enjoy some of the benefits below:

o  Deep relaxation

o  Slower heart rate

o   Warmth spreading evenly to extremities

o  Decreased thirst

o   Soothed emotions

o   Easier breathing

Our healing for menopause symptoms consists of a multi-step process. A healing process consists of 5 sessions. Menopause symptoms can generally be healed within one healing process, although it will also depend on the patient’s level of low body heat constitution and other complications. This healing addresses the underlying weak constitution and rebalances hormone levels so that the result is long-lasting.

Caution! – Hormone Replacement Therapy is Not Recommended

On Oct. 15, 2002, U.S. Preventive Services Task Force concluded that harmful effects of the combined estrogen and progestin therapy are likely to exceed the chronic disease prevention benefits for most women. For every 10,000 women taking the pills, every year there will be eight more cases of breast cancer, seven more heart attacks, eight more cases of stroke and eight more cases of life-threatening blood clots in the lungs, than if they hadn't taken the pills, the study found.

Note:    * The low body heat constitution is also called “false heat” condition in Chinese medicine. The person with low body heat is likely to have a dry mouth and often feel thirsty.
