Case Histories - Menopausal Syndrome (8)

A 52-year-old woman had been suffering from menopausal problems manifesting with hot flushes, night-sweating, dry mouth, insomnia (waking up during the night), a feeling of heat, nervous tension, anxiety, and palpitations. Her tongue was Red and slightly peeled and her pulse was Weak on both Kidney positions.


This is a clear case of Heart- and Kidney-Yin deficiency. The symptoms indicating a Heart pattern are nervous tension, insomnia, anxiety and palpitations.


I prescribed Heavenly Empress which nourishes Heart- and Kidney-Yin and clears Heart Empty Heat.
