There are many causes of amenorrhoea according to traditional Chinese medicine and can affect many women.
Listen to Heiko Lade and Ilana Sowter go through the different patterns of disharmony involving deficiency and excess problems leading to the menstrual cycle stopping.
In cases of energy blocking the mechanism to allow free flow of the menstrual cycle, treatment must be focused on shifting stuck energy and/or blood. If the person starts taking tonics like ginseng or astragalus the problem will only get worse because its like over watering a pot plant more and more and causing the roots to rot.
Western medicine says that stress can cause amenorrhoea and Chinese medicine has been saying this for about two thousand years. Ilana reviews how specific emotional states are the root to identifying the course of treatment that can bring the cycle back again.
