Herbal Remedies for Deficient Menstruation
When menstruation stops before menopause, it is most likely that a deficiency of blood and vital energy exists. It is more common among women who eat a diet that focuses on raw fruits and vegetables or excludes all animal products for many years. Signs of blood deficiency include pale tongue, pale cheeks, a feeling of coldness, avoidance of cold weather, and fatigue. Women who engage in intense physical activity, such as marathon running, can also experience a cessation of the menstrual flow.
Herbal support includes digestive tonics, blood-building herbs, and hormone regulators.
