Women's Health in Traditional Chinese Medicine
Qi and blood are the foundation of human life. The Liver is the organ responsible for the smooth flow of Qi and blood for all other organs. When the Liver is low in energy (Qi deficiency), it will lead to a deficiency in blood and Qi (also known as Jing) in the Kidney, which may cause irregular menstruation and menstruation pain.
Ancient Chinese medical theory tells us that a woman’s kidney Qi, moves in seven years’ cycles. In the first seven years, kidney Qi manifests itself in the growth of hair and permanent teeth. During the second seven years, this Qi will lead to growing and support of sexual organ development. The menstrual cycle starts from the second seven years, also called adolescence.
A woman’s kidney Qi will achieve its peak at the fifth of seven-year cycle, around the age of thirty-five. Therefore, a woman’s flourish period is between age 14 and 35. During this period, the chance of pregnancy is the highest in a woman’s life. According to TCM, strengthening the liver is the key to having a healthy kidney Qi and blood, the most important foundation for conceiving a healthy and intelligent baby.
The seventh seven year cycle is the time that menstruation stops for most woman, although a few may stop in the eighth seven year cycle. The eventual decline of kidney Qi leads to exhaustion then the end of reproductive ability. Menopause represents the ending of menstrual cycles. TCM calls the various symptoms that some women experience simply “menstrual cycle ending symptoms.”
This stage of life is a natural part of a woman’s lifecycle and is a gateway to an enriching and fulfilling time of her life. In this period a woman has great opportunity to enhance her health. Therefore, to be healthy women should aim to balance Qi and blood of organs.
Info on Liver, Heart and Other Organs Health
The Liver stores blood which is the organ responsible for Qi and blood as well as the smooth flow of emotions. According to the Five Element theory in TCM, the Liver is the “mother” of the Heart. Continual stress or depression will cause Liver energy to become compromised (Live Qi deficiency) since one of its energetic functions is to smooth and regulate emotions.
The eyes are the sensory organ related to the Liver. Blurry vision, red or dry eyes, itchy or sore eyes may be a sign that your liver is not functioning well.
The opposite of Liver Qi deficiency is the Liver Qi stagnation, which causes anger. If you are often irritable, get angry easily, have a sense of tightness on the chest, or soreness inside the chest, you may have Liver Qi stagnation and need to soothe the liver.
The Heart, according to Chinese medicine, is the king of all organs. This means that all the other organs always give their energy to help the Heart maintain their balance. The Heart’s partner is the Small Intestine.
According to the Five Element Theory, the heart is directly related to the liver and the stomach. The Liver is the “mother” of the Heart, the Stomach is the “child” of the Heart. The balance of Heart energy comes from the balance of Stomach energy. Continual stress causes Liver energy to be low because one of its energetic functions is to smooth and regulate emotions. So, the Liver cannot properly support the Heart when the Liver Qi is deficient. To maintain healthy Heart function, it’s important to maintain a balance of the Liver and the Stomach.
OTHER ORGANS HEALTH
The Kidney is the organ as known in TCM as storing and controlling Jing (the essence of qi as well as the basis for body matter and functional activities). The function of Jing is to promote growth, development, sexual maturation, reproduction, and ageing. The kidney works like the powerhouse of the human body. It supplies reserve energy to any organ running low on Qi. Its partner organ is the Bladder. Deficiency of the Kidney Qi (low in Kidney energy) may cause osteoporosis, joint pain, lethargy, infertility or development issue.
The ears are the sensory organs related to the Kidney. Any ear problems may be a signal from the body saying the Kidney is now functioning well, such as deafness, tinnitus, or ear infection.
The Lung is the organ known in TCM as maintaining healthy immune defences against pathogens, as well as circulating Qi and fluids throughout the body. A partner with the Large Intestine, the Lung is also responsible for excretion of metabolic wastes. Deficiency of Lung Qi may result in cold, trachea Inflammation or allergies, such as hay fever.
The nose is the sensory organ related to the Lung. Any of the following symptoms indicates compromised Lung function: runny nose; sneezing; congested sinuses; loss of smell.
The Spleen and Stomach partner together to control digestion. They “feed” all other organs with nutrition and power from food. The stomach and spleen are mostly affected by chronic emotions such as depression, anxiety or overthinking. Therefore positive emotions will support a healthy digestive system.
Traditional Chinese Medicine, which we have drawn on to create modern therapeutic remedies, teaches the importance of balance for a long and healthy life.
