Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes women are born with enough estrogen for a lifetime. Unlike Western medicine, TCM views menopause not as a disease to be treated with hormone replacement therapy, but as a natural energy transition. TCM believes supporting women with healing foods, herbs and energy movements aimed at balancing liver function and keeping Qi flowing smoothly, can help them move through this time with relatively minor discomfort.
