Menopause occurs as the ovaries stop producing estrogen, causing the reproductive system to gradually shut down. As the body adapts to the changing levels of natural hormones, vasomotor symptoms such as hot flashes and palpitations, psychological symptoms such as increased depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings and lack of concentration, and atrophic symptoms such as vaginal dryness and urgency of urination appear. Together with these symptoms, the woman may also have increasingly scanty and erratic menstrual periods.

Perimenopause refers to the time preceding menopause, during which the production of hormones such as estrogen and progesterone diminishes and becomes more irregular. During this period fertility diminishes.

The average onset of menopause is 50.5 years, but some women enter menopause at a younger age, especially if they have suffered from cancer or another serious illness and undergone chemotherapy. Premature menopause (or premature ovarian failure) is defined as menopause occurring before the age of 40, and occurs in one percent of women.

Post-menopausal women, especially Caucasian women of European descent, are at increased risk of osteoporosis.

In Chinese Medicine, menopause is caused by Kindney Yin and Kidney Yan difficiency. It’s a natural stage of one’s life spin when one’s hormone reduce naturally with age. Using natural supplement instead of HRT is the best way to reduce the menopause sympton such as hot flashes, mood swing and vaginal dryness. Treatments includes acupuncture and herbal supplements.
