Womens Health: Busy as a… woman?
It’s true. Women are often so busy taking care of their families, jobs, homes, relatives, friends, neighbors, pets, plants…that they fail to take care of themselves. Annoying—or worse—symptoms are just brushed aside, suffered through, endured, month after month, sometimes year after year, during the normal female cycles of menstruation and menopause.
PMS (premenstrual syndrome) is defined as a combination of emotional, physical, psychological, and mood disturbances that occur between the time of ovulation and the onset of menstrual flow. The most common mood-related symptoms are irritability, depression, oversensitivity, and mood swings with alternating sadness and anger. The most common physical symptoms are fatigue, bloating, breast tenderness, acne flare-ups, insomnia, and appetite changes with accompanying food cravings and/or weight gain. These symptoms may recur during perimenopause.
All just part of being a woman? Maybe. Doctors estimate that approximately 80% of women experience some of these symptoms, with 25 to 30% enduring clinically-significant symptoms that disrupt their functioning. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do about it.
Tang kuei is an herb in the celery family native to China, Japan, and Korea. The root is medicinally active, and has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries for its beneficial effects on circulation, blood coagulation, and mood and general well-being. It is called the "female ginseng" because of its balancing effect on the female hormonal system, and its unique combination of energizing and calming properties. Tang Kuei Plus supports muscle relaxation and the restful sleep that women so need to get through their busy days.
During the transition to menopause, perimenopausal symptoms can become a constant tormenting companion, perhaps for years. The infamous hot flashes—no joke—combined with irritability, sleepless nights, night sweats, and moodiness can have a huge effect on womens health, and their daily life and peace of mind.
Perimenopause literally means “around menopause”. It is the period of time when women begin to exhibit symptoms of menopause, typically starting in the late thirties and lasting up to 15 years, with the average about 6 years. Menstruation has not yet completely stopped during this time, but the erratic fluctuation of ovarian hormones causes typical menopause signs and symptoms such as hot flashes, irregular menstrual periods, mood swings, vaginal dryness, and sleep disturbances.
For years, doctors treated these symptoms with hormones (Hormone Replacement Therapy, or HRT). But recent studies have shown an association between HRT and increases in blood clots, heart disease, stroke and breast cancer Therefore, women are more often looking elsewhere for relief.
Isoflavones, or phytoestrogens, are hormone-like compounds found in all plants. They have estrogen-like properties, and act on cells by gently and safely mimicking the effects of more potent steroidal estrogens from animal sources. In addition to their hormone balancing activities, phytoestrogen compounds provide many other health benefits—they are antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
