More Information
TCM and Premenstrual Tension
In Chinese medicine, the liver is responsible for smoothing the distribution of qi and blood. When liver qi and blood stagnate, tension in the muscles follows, as well as along the liver channel. This leads to the common PMS symptoms of irritability, headache, neck tension and breast distension.
Liver stagnation causing PMS has various causes. Internalized emotions, modern stresses including environmental toxins in the food, air and water as well as intestinal toxins, pharmaceuticals and hormone drugs all may contribute.
The goal of the TCM herbal approach is to soothe the liver qi, tonify blood and yin, and clear heat from the liver. Successful therapy is usually achieved in one to four months. It is best to take the herbal formulas between ovulation and menstruation. In some patients, PMS symptoms may be aggravated with herbal medicine; this is usually due to too strong a dosage and better results can be obtained by reducing the dosage.
