In Western Medicine
In Western medicine it’s believed that menopause is a normal condition that all women experience as they age. The term encompasses any of the changes a woman goes through either just before or after she stops menstruating, marking the end of her reproductive period. Menopause is a normal part of aging when it happens after the age of 40. But some women can go through menopause early, either as a result of surgery or damage to the ovaries, such as from chemotherapy. Menopause that happens before 40, regardless of the cause, is called premature menopause.
In TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)
TCM believes that Blood Deficiency, Kidney Yang Deficiency, Kidney Yin Deficiencies or Kidney Yin and Yang Deficiencies in combination would causes menopause.
Blood Deficiency - Blood deficiency can mimic symptoms of anemia in Western Medical diagnosis. Blood deficiency can be caused by a poor diet, blood loss, including heavy menstrual or postpartum bleeding, digestive problems leading to malabsorption, stress, and constitutional predisposition. When the body doesn’t have enough blood flow or blood supplies then the menstrual period can get affected..
Kidney Yin Deficiencies - Kidney Yin is the foundation of the yin fluid of the whole body; it moistens and nourishes the organs and tissues. If the body doesn’t have enough fluid to nourish the organs then the menstrual period can stop and dry as well.
Kidney Yang Deficiencies - Kidney Yang is the foundation of the yang Qi(oxygen/air flow) of the whole body; it warms and promotes the functions of the organs and tissues. If the yang Qi is off then the functions of the organs can get affected as well.
Kidney Yin and Kidney Yang Deficiencies - Kidney Yin and Kidney Yang always influence each other, since they are mutually dependent. Therefore if Kidney Yin suffers a long-term damage, Kidney Yang will be affected and the result is a depletion of both Yin and Yang.
Some Western medication or drugs would affect Kidney Yin, Yang or both with an increased chance for a premature menopause.
