Normalizes Your Cycle and Enhances Your Beauty†
It's almost that time of the month you dread. A dozen times a year, or more, your quality of life plummets, all because of your irregular cycle. But it's not just your emotional and physical state that can suffer. So, too, may your beauty, sexuality and self esteem.
According to TCM theory, there's a direct correlation between menses and overall women's wellness. Healthy, radiant skin is only possible with a regular cycle. Indeed, many women with irregular menses look pale and gaunt and have rough skin, as well as other undesirable characteristics (more of which are described below). Also, irregular cycles may cause dryness in the vagina as well as low sex drive.
To achieve a regular menses, some women rely on estrogen supplementation. An herbal alternative is our traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) formula, WarmMenses™. WarmMenses may help regulate your cycle, and may help restore uterine function and intimacy. By normalizing your cycle, WarmMenses encourages internal conditions for more youthful and healthy-looking skin. Moreover, this classic formula from which WarmMenses is derived, is the only one mentioned in TCM literature to help with conception.
Famous Traditional Formula for Women Warms Menses and Nourishes Blood
Wen Jing Tang, the Chinese name of this herbal formula, dates back several centuries. It's the main prescription in TCM for cold type menstrual disorder, symptoms of which include: cold sensation and discomfort in the lower abdomen; early or late menses; mild bleeding in the uterus; painful menstruation; bleeding or spotting between cycles; and low-grade fever.
Women with this TCM syndrome typically appear at least slightly malnourished with pale face; have low energy and are physically weak. Secondary characteristics include dry mouth and lips, and dry palms that easily crack. Other areas of the skin may also be dry and rough.
How does WarmMenses Work?
WarmMenses warms the meridians, expels cold, nourishes blood and removes Blood stasis.
Wu Zhu Yu (Evodia Fruit) and Rou Gui (Cinnamon bark) both warm the channels and dispel cold to promote blood circulation. Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica Root), Chuan Xiong (Sichuan Lovage Root) and Bai Shao (Peony Root) invigorate the Blood, eliminate Blood stasis and nourish the Blood to regulate menstruation.
Gan Cao (Licorice root) tonifies the Middle Burner and strengthens the Spleen to enrich the source of Qi and Blood. Dang Shen (Codonopsis Root) also tonifies the Middle Burner and strengthens Spleen, as well as augments Qi.
Zhi Ban Xia (Processed Pinellia Rhizome) regulates and sends down the abnormally ascending Stomach Qi to disperse accumulation of Qi. It's also helpful in removing Blood stasis. Gan Jiang (Dried Ginger Root) warms the Stomach to promote the production of Blood and Qi.
WarmMenses also includes other herbs to enhance the original formula function. Zhi Fu Zi (Processed Aconite Root), is a warming herb, as it disperses cold and dampness. Huang Qi (Astragalus Root) and Bai Zhu (Atractylodes Rhizome) are Qi-strengthening herbs.
Does Research Support WarmMenses?
In a study of women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), the effect of Wen Jing Tang on the levels of plasma LH (Luteinizing hormone) and estradiol were measured and ovulation rates were determined. After a 8-week administration, plasma LH levels were significantly decreased (p < 0.0001) and a mild increase of estradiol was observed (1.51-fold, p = 0.055) in women whose condition fits the TCM pattern diagnosis applicable to the formula. The ovulation rate was also significantly higher (p = 0.0036).1
In another study, Wen Jing Tang significantly increased blood flow through the skin surface of lower extremities in women with chilly sensation.2
