Menopause: Herbal Preparations | Herbal Formulas

Introduction
Ayurvedic preparations are completely different in their intention and their action. They are mixtures of natural substances which can correct an underlying imbalance. They promote an energetic adjustment which is at a level of intelligence higher than the molecular level. Reestablishing balance at this subtle energetic (i.e. doshic) level of human function removes the push at the physical (i.e. molecular) level toward discomfort and the symptoms are eliminated at their root.

Ayurvedic preparations are made from various materials in Nature: roots, rhizomes, seeds, flowers, stems, leaves, barks, minerals, resins, and even some metals.

Most Ayurvedic preparations are combinations of several different materials, sometimes up to fifty. Each root, leaf, or mineral component can be thought of as an “information bit” and when combined together form an “information bundle”. Applying the correct information bundle for your energetic imbalance in the proper dosage, at the right time, and for the correct duration, is the key to rebalancing your physiology. Although to accurately determine which herbal medicines are precisely indicated requires a full knowledge of both the patient and the condition (rogarogi pariksha), knowing a woman’s constitutional type (prakriti) allows us to choose some basic therapeutic materials. Many of the plants below contain one or more phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens are plant-derived substances whose chemical structure is similar to endogenous human estrogens. They are categorized into four main groups: isoflavones, lignans, coumestans, and resorcylic acid lactones (although the latter is not a true phytoestrogen). The formulas below can include all or some of the listed ingredients.
