From the perspective of TCM, the symptoms experienced during menopause are the result of a deficiency of Kidney energy or Jing, an inherited form of Qi (life force) that supplies us with our vitality.
As we get older, Jing becomes more and more depleted – especially among women who have had multiple pregnancies, experienced chronic stress, illness or overwork, or who’ve had a tendency to neglect their fluid intake.
As a result, the body’s balance of Yin and Yang may be disrupted, leading to the characteristic symptoms of menopause. For example, when there is a deficiency of Yin and relative excess of Yang, a woman may experience hot and/or dry symptoms such as flushes, night sweats, insomnia, irritability and vaginal dryness. If Yang deficiency is present, cold symptoms such as fatigue and low sex drive may occur.
Fusion® Health Menopause Free tablets contain Chinese herbs traditionally used to restore Jing by nourishing and balancing Yin and Yang. It supports the functioning of the Kidney organ-meridian system (which in Chinese medicine governs not just the kidneys themselves, but all aspects of reproductive health, including the menstrual cycle, hormones, ovaries and other sex glands, genitals) and the integrity of the bones, ligaments and muscles.
This formula also contains Kudzu, a natural source of phytoestrogens (isoflavones) that is often taken during menopause for its balancing and cooling properties.
