And the mood swings! Mood swings were MY first symptom when I hit peri-menopause.
A year ago I was at an outdoor concert with my husband, my two dogs, and my parents. It was the most beautiful 80 degree summer day, in the most beautiful park. We were listening to the happiest music, and kids were dancing all over the grass. Nothing bad had happened in my life recently!
And I spent most of the concert behind the concrete hut with the restrooms in it - Because I COULDN’T STOP CRYING.
For no reason, I was bawling my eyes out - and I could NOT stop. I couldn’t control it. I thought I was finally losing it.
Then a few days later I got my period and I felt normal again. Not sad not depressed.. And I was like OOOOOH - that was PMS made worse my peri-menopause - WOW.
So I did ONE thing. I started a new Chinese herbal formula. Because I’m an herbalist I knew which formula to take. I started on it right away. I didn’t miss any doses.
And the next month my mood swings were about half as bad. And by the third month on the formula my mood swings were 99% gone and I was back to my regular, mild PMS. And I've stayed that way ever since!
That’s the power of Chinese herbs during menopause. And I see it over and over again in my practice.
