Author: Chan E-Lyn Uploaded Date: 16th February 2020
Meet Jen, a 35 years old marketing manager. Jen’s menstrual cycle comes regularly. She neither suffers from painful menstrual cramps nor excessive bloating, her menstrual flow is also normal. Moreover, her mood and energy is stable. Jen’s monthly visit ‘Aunt flo’ has never affected her work performance.
On the other hand, Belle’s a 28 year-old accountant and her menstruation experience is quite the opposite. Not only does her menstrual cycle come irregularly, she also experiences belly bloating, excessive bleeding and blood clots. Worse still, her menstruation also involves painful cramps which may affect her concentration at work.
Why do Jen and Belle have drastically different menstrual cycles? Is it merely fate that Jen has better luck on problem-free menstruation?
Menstrual Cycles: The TCM Point of View
It always goes back to the same theory. The liver stores blood, regulates qi, the vital energy and controls smooth blood flow which is strongly influenced even during the monthly cycle. Any stress and negative emotions including anger may cause liver qi stagnation, thereby causing vital energy and blood flow to be impeded.
A typical complete menstrual cycle is 28 days long, though it may vary among individuals. Apart from the typical Bazhen Tang and Siwu Tang used in ancient times, Le Shenz offers an improved formula to complete your monthly health management during menstruation and post-menstruation, Shenz & Beauy.
