Menopausal complaints, such as hot flashes; heart palpitations; night swats; fatigue; depression; irritability; and irregular menstrual bleeding, are all symptoms that something is out of balance in a woman's body. Menopause itself is not a disease; in fact, many women go through menopause without any negative symptoms. When symptoms do accompany menopause, it is an indication that this change in life is not going as smoothly as it should: that the woman has gotten "hung up" in the process and has not come out on the other side.
Many women from the Baby Boomer generation are experiencing (or rapidly approaching) menopause, and are looking for alternatives to conventional Western medical care for this transition in life. More women are turning to Chinese medicine for a holistic alternative and complement to standard Western medicine. Chinese medicine is the oldest secular, literate, professional, continually practiced medicine in the world today, and it is a holistic medicine par excellent. This is because professional practitioners of Chinese medicine don't just treat diseases; they treat the whole person.
According to Chinese medical theory, menopause (or the climacteric) is the body's very wise attempt to slow down the aging process. When Chinese doctors treat menopausal complaints, they must first determine how or where the woman has gotten stuck in this transition. Once they know this, they can then supply various natural therapies such as acupuncture, Chinese herbs and Chinese dietary therapy, to correct that imbalance and help the woman successfully complete her transition.
