I Know Which Herbal MenopauseTreatment Works!...Would You Like To Know?Here Is Why and How I Know!

A principal area of my expertise is Herbal Menopause Treatment or what some call Natural Menopause Treatment. As a Holistic Oriental Medicine Doctor, also known as Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor or a Chinese Medicine Herbalist I have helped hundreds of women with Menopause and Post-Menopausal symptoms reduce or even eliminate their symptoms using holistic and natural herbal menopause remedies made up of Chinese herbs.

I have treated hundreds of women successfully with natural herbal menopause treatment formulas without dangerous prescription hormones or hormone replacement therapy, or even so-called bio-identical hormones.

Prescription hormones increase the risk of stroke and heart attack and cancer. Herbal menopause remedies do not contribute to such problems. Herbal menopause formulas are safe and gentle and highly effective. I'm going to explain why in a bit...

But first what are some possible symptoms of menopause including peri-menopause, menopause and post-menopausal syndromes.

Possible Symptoms of Menopause:

How do you know if you are in peri-menopause? The symptoms listed below will likely come and go. You may feel normal like you always did for a while and then have any of the symptoms listed below and have them leave again.

You are in full blown menopause when any or all of the symptoms below become more or less present all the time.

The Symptoms may include any or but very rarely all of the following:

Heat signs or signs of heat in your body such as:

  • hot flashes,
  • hot flashes followed by feeling cold,
  • feeling hot generally or more often than before,
  • flushing or reddening or the face or cheeks, some woman's faces will turn Beet red and then they start sweating,
  • night-sweats,
  • feelings of heat in the palms of the hands or soles of the feet,
  • feelings of increased heat in the afternoon

Signs of Dryness such as:

  • dry mouth,
  • dry skin,
  • dry hair,
  • itching,
  • vaginal dryness,
  • dry eyes,
  • constipation.

General Symptoms which may include any or all of the following:

  • dizziness,
  • fatigue, or feeling tired,
  • tinnitus or ringing in the ears,
  • depression,
  • weight gain,
  • decreased interest in sex,
  • sore or achy back,
  • achy joints,
  • a feeling of tightness or oppression of the chest,
  • a feeling of distention in the breasts,
  • palpitations,
  • a feeling of fullness in the belly,
  • belching,
  • feeling angry,
  • moodiness,
  • sometimes big mood swings,
  • feeling agitated,
  • insomnia,
  • blurred vision,
  • nausea.
If you look at your tongue in the mirror it may be red or very red. It could look raw or peeled with a lot of cracks.

Not every woman will have all these symptoms. For thousands of years practitioners of Oriental Medicine have known, and written down the main patterns of dysfunction that account for all of the symptoms listed above. And the treatments have been effective for all that time.

To successfully treat menopause and post-menopausal symptoms we need to determine which symptoms you are experiencing. Once we make that determination...

...we can formulate an effective natural herbal menopause treatment formula that will work for you.

Is There Any Scientific Proof That Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) Is Dangerous?

Is it true that the most recent, largest, most comprehensive medical study of treatment of menopausal symptoms by hormone replacement therapy concluded that it was possibly too dangerous and should not be used by most women?

Yes. Those were the studies conclusions.

More recent research has said no women should take hormone replacement therapy as it only relieves hot flashes temporarily and there are other better ways to treat those symptoms. A study published in late April, 2003 concluded that hormone replacement therapy did not even alleviate the symptoms of hot flashes, and low sex drive.

This is why I think smart women will want to use natural menopause treatments like Chinese Herbal Medicine formulas.

Self-Help...Is There Anything I Can Do Myself To Reduce My Symptoms And Hot Flashes? Yes!

A. Remember all of those symptoms that reflected heat in the body? Avoid eating any warming herbs or spices since they will dry you out and create heat in your body leading to increased numbers of hot flashes.

Examples of herbs that create heat in the body are Chinese, or Korean Ginseng, Schizandra, Turmeric, Cayenne pepper, Tabasco sauce, black pepper, chili powder, curries, ginger and any other hot spices. Note: it is best not to self prescribe herbs. Seek the assistance of someone trained in Oriental Medicine and herbology.B.

B. Also regarding reducing the amount of heat in the body...Food therapy is paying attention to the effect of food on your body. Reduce the amount of hot spicy foods, including hot spicy American, Chinese, Mexican and Thai dishes. Also reduce or avoid altogether coffee, alcohol, and cigarettes as they all create heat in the body.

Fermented Soy products are good for menopausal symptoms and good sources of soy are miso, and other products made with fermented soy including tofu. Do not eat any soy product that is not fermented it is not safe...Do not give your children any un-fermented such as soy based baby formulas.

Drink Green Tea as it has a marked cooling effect on the body, yet can still give you a bit of a caffeine boost if you need it. Green tea also has anti-cancer properties.

C. Life style. Reduce stress; try not to worry about things out of your control. Learn to meditate, it's easy. Ask me how. Get regular moderate exercise. It is a fact that walking reduces stress and promotes strong bones and can reverse osteoporosis, since it causes the bones to absorb calcium.

D. Vaginal dryness. A paste made of aloe vera gel (you don't have to have an aloe plant to do this, you can buy pure aloe Gel at your local health food store and even Walmart) and slippery elm powder mixed to the consistency of tooth paste and inserted into the vagina can relieve vaginal dryness and itching. If itching persists, open a vitamin E capsule and apply the oil to the itching vaginal area. However all these symptoms can most easily be treated by taking herbs.

E. You can try the following herbs, supplements or over the counter remedies available at most health food stores: Black Kohash, Remifemin a product which contains Black Kohash. Try taking Gotu Kola, Dong Gui and Dioscorea (Chinese Yam root) to relieve hot flashes and other symptoms.

All of the above recommendations are hit or miss and trial and error because they do not take into account your specific combination of symptoms.

Here Is A Testimonial I'll Never Forget!:

"I don't care what is wrong with you...see Dr. Eichenauer. He can help you with anything. He helped me with every problem I ever presented him with.

I even had major surgery for a complete bowel obstruction and he got me back to work months faster than the hospital MDs told me was possible.

His herbal formulas worked wonders for me that time as they always do.

When I called him and told him my symptoms that night, Dr. Eichenauer was the one who told me to go straight to the emergency room right away that night when my bowel was obstructed."
