It is a daily occurrence in my clinic for women to ask me about menopause-related health issues. They wonder whether they should take hormone replacement therapy, and what the long-term effects might be. They ask how women in Asian countries deal with menopause, and if there are natural, safe alternatives to artificial hormone replacement.
For Chinese women, hot flashes and night sweats are uncommon experiences, and their doctors put few of them on hormone replacement therapy. It is an interesting fact that only 10% of Asian women experience noticeable menopausal symptoms, compared with 75% of the women in the United States. Why has this natural transitional period in a woman’s life become a dreaded event for American women? What explains the difference between the typical Chinese woman’s experience of menopause and the typical American woman’s experience? These are important questions for women to ask, and for health care professionals to answer.
Various studies and research concluded that a combination of diet, acupuncture, and Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine is the determining factor in maintaining the health of Asian women through menopause.

What does it contain?
Rehmannia Root – Shu Di Huang: Rehmannia supports the yin and has key nutrients. Rehmannia is one of the most important herbs used in Asian medicine to nourish the kidneys the liver and strengthen the essence. What this means is it improves adrenal function. We use the cooked form in Menopause Relief as a tonic to nourish and replenish the hormonal balance. TCM considers this herb a blood tonic and can be used by both men and women to protect the liver. There is also evidence that cooked Rehmannia lowers blood pressure, which naturally rises as we age. Rehmannia has been known throughout the ages as “the great nourisher” because of its many anti-aging, and rejuvenating functions.
Known Constituents of Rehmannia: Alanine, Arginine, Aspartic-acid, Aucubin, Beta-sitosterol, Calcium, Catalpol, Copper, D-fructose, D-galactose, D-glucose, Gaba, Glucosamine, Glutamic- acid, Glycine, Histidine, Iron, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Magnesium, Manganese, Manninotriose, Mannitol, Melittoside, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Phosphoric-acid, Potassium, Proline, Raffinose, Rehmaglutins, Rehmanniosides, Serine, Stachyose, Sucrose, Threonine, Tyrosine, Valine, Verbascose, Zinc, Vitamins A, B, C, D, amino acids, cerebroside.
Fructus Cornus – Sha Zhu Yu: Fructus Cornus is used in approximately twenty key Traditional Chinese herbal formulas because of its ability to stabilize the adrenals, stop excessive sweating and tonify both the liver and kidney energy. It has other uses as well along with providing an important function of enhancing other herbs in this formula. Fructus Cornus is commonly used in conjuction with Rehmannia and Discoed to nourish and tonify the liver and kidney channels for healthy aging. This herbal threesome creates a powerful triangle of healing energy when used together.
Cortex Moutan – Mu Dan Pi: This herb is the bark of the root Paeonia suffruticosa. Chinese Medicine says this herb invigorates the blood and moves the blood. When combined with other herbs in this formula it is famous for nourishing and cooling your blood or yin energy.
Licorice – Gan Cao: Licorice has a long and highly varied record of uses. It was and remains one of the most important herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is said this herb goes to all twelve channels of the body, a claim given to only a few Chinese herbs. By entering all body channels this herb is often used for its guiding actions to help other herbs enter into channels they would otherwise not normally affect. This is the beauty of Chinese herbal medicine, its ability to combine herbs in formulas to achieve actions they might otherwise not be able to do alone. Licorice has a sweet flavor; sweet Chinese herbs are helpful in tonifying the pancreas. The two major constituents of licorice are glycyrrhizin and flavonoids. Flavonoids are antioxidants known to improve circulation, relieve tissues damage, and have a role in reducing inflammation.
Discoreae Root – Shan Yao: Food should be our first medicine and Discorea is wild yam, a traditional food source. Discorea is used as a supportive herb in Menopause Relief to balance both the yin and yang with its neutral energy. Yam is known as one of the easiest foods to digest and this herb helps both the digestive system and our yin by naturally replenishing bodily fluids we often lose in the aging process. It is contains rich sources of trace minerals like copper, calcium, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids, which helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure by countering hypertensive effects of sodium.
Poria – Fu Ling: Poria is most commonly used to strengthen the spleen and calms the mind in TCM. Beyond poria’s principal action, this herb is also used to calm the heart spirit.
Alisma – Ze Xie: Alisma contains a pungent, volatile oil, which is the source of its medicinal attributes. Alisma is often used to alleviate water retention. Its urination-promoting actions are used to reduce edema and urinary difficulties. Additionally, Alisma is used to help treat dizziness with heat and ringing in the ears. Studies have shown that alisma lowers blood pressure. Alisma is known to lower lipids in blood, lower blood cholesterol levels, exhibit antibacterial properties, and lower blood sugar. Its many uses are well documented and are the perfect complement to the other herbs in Menopause Relief Herb Pack.
Anemerrhena- Zhi Mu: It is the root of this herb that has properties of clearing excess fire and at the same time nourishing the yin. These are two very important treatment principals making this herb a prized possession. Its major chemical constituents include saponines, flavonoids, polysaccharides and alkaloids.
Eclipta – Mo Han Lian: Eclipta has a wide range of biological uses. In China, it has been used as a cooling and restorative herb for centuries. Eciplta is considered one of the best remedies for the hair and is used as a rejuvenative liver tonic. The wide ranges of chemical compounds make eclipta excellent for many medicinal uses. Active ingredients include coumestans, alkaloids, thiopenes, flavonoids, polyacetylenes, triterpenes and their glycosides have all been isolated and documented.
Ligustrum fruit – Nu Zhen Zi: Ligustrum nourishes and tonifies the liver and kidney channels. It is very effective at clearing heat from deficiency conditions such as menopausal hot flashes and night sweats. In addition, this herb is excellent at improving the vision because it augments the liver and kidneys.
Epimedium – Yin Yang Huo: Epimedium nourishes your yin, improves, and promotes healthy bone density with trace minerals and bone growth factors. Epimedium has many research studies showing its ability to improve bone density while protecting the bones from typical degenerative aging by protecting cells with well-known phytonutrients. Epimedium is also commonly known as Horny Goat weed, most likely for its powerful physical yang stimulating effects on energy. You may have heard of it as a sexual tonic but in TCM, it is considered both a Yin and Yang tonic herb. We use it in Menopause relief because it serves both these functions. While it is important to nourish our yin while we age, women can always use supportive herbs for our yang energy, especially during peri-menopause and menopause. Epimedium is used in a famous ancient formula for fertility known as Two Immortal Pill because of its ability to tonify the liver and kidney energy and both the yin and yang. It is a commonly used herb for all menopause symptoms including, hot flashes, night sweats, mental disturbances, irritability, insomnia and palpitations. Combined with the other herbs in Menopause Relief it has remarkable functions. The Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences places these herbs in a group of elite group of herbs that slow aging and promote longevity.
Lycium – Gou Qi Zi or Goji Berry: Whether you call it Goji Berry, Gou Qi Zi, Chinese Wolfberry or Lycium it is all a power packed little red berry that has recently been discovered in the West, but has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for millena. Traditionally grown on bushy vines in mountainous areas, Lycium fruit provides energy, is commonly used to strengthen the immune system and is used in our Menopause Relief for its ability to improve sexual fluids and enhance fertility functions. (It also tastes great!)
Lycium Fruit has a high concentration of beta-carotene, vitamins B1 and B2, as well as vitamin C. It also contains eighteen kinds of amino acids and important trace minerals. Heat processing can destroy all these vitamins so be sure your Lycium berry is processed in only pharmaceutical grade facilities, like ours to preserve all its natural constituents.
What our reviewer thought
This product was given to one of our testers who are currently going through menopause. After using it several times, she experienced a significant improvement in the menopausal symptoms she was experiencing. At night, she would wake up in a pool of sweat. Her clothes were drenched and even the sheets where she was lying on were wet. After using the Pacific Herbs Menopause Relief Herb Pack, she saw a huge reduction in the night sweats she was experiencing. After 3 to 4 days, she no longer was having the night sweats. She also noticed that she was a lot calmer and she was not jumping at people for no apparent reason. The reviewer also said that her hot flashes reduced significantly and she stopped having them after she had been using the product for a week.
Kim found Pacific Herbs Menopause Relief Herb Pack to be the most effective herb for menopause that she has ever tried. It worked well for her. It was easy for her to use. She tried it with both a hot cup of water and with cranberry juice. Both tasted good. She liked taking it with the cranberry juice and when I tried it, I liked drinking it as a hot tea. It really depends on preference. Kim used the product for one month. She like the taste and was pleased with the results.
It came quickly, packaged well and she said she was going to continue to use Pacific Herbs Menopause Relief Herb Pack.
