The Phases of the Menstrual Cycle According to Chinese Medicine

Greenstar’s Meeting Room
Amanda Lewis, L.Ac

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the average 28-day menstrual cycle is divided into
four periods that are distinguished by the particular stage of blood as it builds and
courses through the body. These periods are marked by hormone fluctuations, body
temperature changes, and varied associated symptoms that are specific to each
individual woman.

In September’s class, we’ll learn how to differentiate these four periods of the
menstrual cycle, as well as discuss how treatment principles change according to
the phase. We will also talk about the causes and treatment tips for these 8 most
common menstrual irregularities:

(1) Early, (2) Late, (3) No-Fixed-Date, (4) Profuse, (5) Scanty, (6) Flooding, (7)
Blocked, and (8) Painful

Certain supplements and foods can be used to help regulate the menstrual cycle
and Amanda will highlight these at the end of the class, followed by a brief tour
through Greenstar to locate the foods and supplements mentioned in the class.
