Example text

FIGURE 7.  When the liver becomes depressed, this is a species of fullness or repletion.  However, even if there is no cough, weak lungs can Page 49 contribute to hot flashes and night sweats, the mechanism for which is described in more detail under hot flashes below.  This leads to such symptoms as palpitations, insomnia, restlessness, anxiety, poor memory, emotional lability, and dream­disturbed sleep. FIGURE 8.  It is rather like the proverbial straw on the camel's back. The difficulty here is that, according to Chinese medicine, qi stagnation usually worsens with age due to the natural decline of qi, blood, yin, and yang that define aging.

In addition to the qi stagnation and fluid dryness, weakness of kidney yang may also play a role in causing constipation in menopausal and postmenopausal women.  This disruption in the proper circulation of water in the pelvis dries out the intestines complicating the above mechanism of constipation.  The mechanism for why liver blood becomes vacuous at menopause has already been discussed in several prior sections above.  When these are insufficient, the joints can become painful and lose their flexibility.

If both yin and yang are weakened, the situation is therefore that much worse.  When yin and yang are sufficient and in relative balance, night sweating does not occur.  Chinese medicine does not necessarily say that it is the night sweats which cause the interruption of sleep so much as that they occur concomitantly.  This again can be seen as the yang counterflowing up due to yin being insufficient to enfold within and hold it down.  It is, therefore, not unreasonable to think that some women might experience symptoms of blood vacuity, insomnia being among them.
