Menopause can cause a vast number of different symptoms, including hot flushes, night sweats, excessive perspiration, sleeplessness, reduced libido, dry skin, vaginal dryness, muscle and joint pain, headaches and nervous tension.
Of those, the symptoms that are most commonly experienced by Australian women and that are likely to have the greatest impact on your quality of life are hot flushes, night sweats, sleep disturbances and sexual difficulties.
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), these common menopausal symptoms are often characterised by an excess of Heat (as occurs in hot flushes and night sweats) and/or dryness (for example as it affects the vaginal tissue or skin), suggesting an underlying deficiency of Yin (female energy) relative to Yang (male energy).
Fusion® Menopause Free™ is a strongly cooling formula that’s been specially formulated with Chinese herbs traditionally used to nourish Yin and address overheating and dryness, bringing relief to women suffering from hot flushes, night sweats, disturbed sleep and/or dryness of the skin and vaginal tissue.
Its ingredients include Pueraria (a natural source of phytoestrogens), Phellodendron (a very cooling herb that drains Heat and is traditionally considered particularly beneficial for menopausal women with Yin deficiency), Anemarrhena (which nourishes Yin and also has cooling properties) and Dong Quai (traditionally used to invigorate and nourish the Blood).
Even when Yin deficiency dominates, menopausal women are often Yang deficient, so Fusion® Menopause Free™ also contains Horny Goat Weed and Curculigo, which are traditionally used to tonify and strengthen Yang.
The Western herb Vitex (Chaste Tree) is also present in this formula as it is traditionally used to help maintain a regular menstrual cycle.
Note: As a Yin-Yang-balancing formula, Fusion® Menopause Free™ is most suitable for women whose symptoms are predominantly indicative of Yin deficiency (e.g. intense hot flushes, vaginal dryness and other hot and dry symptoms). If your symptoms are more indicative of Yang deficiency (e.g. moodiness, sleeplessness, sexual disinterest), consider taking Fusion® Menopause instead.
Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare practitioner.
