(NaturalNews) Eighty five percent of women suffer from hot flushes (or flashes) during the menopausal transition, making it the most commonly reported symptom during this change of life. The severity of the symptoms depends to a large degree on a woman's dietary and lifestyle history. Approximately fifty per cent of the women, who do endure hot flashes, will experience them, to one degree or another, for five to ten years after the cessation of the period.

Western medicine understands hot flushing to be a sign of estrogen deficiency, and for over forty years now the established approach has been to treat "the disease of menopause" with hormones - synthetic and now bio identical. The idea that menopause is a disease was specifically created as a marketing strategy and is patently absurd. Even so, over the years many women have reported that hot flushing seems to be the one symptom that HRT does effectively eliminate. While the modern approach treats the normal deficiencies of the aging process by introducing hormones into the body, the traditional approach treats the deficiencies themselves. Instead of putting hormones into the body, traditional doctors supplement the very essences from which the hormones are made.

Traditional Chinese Medicine views menopause as the natural transition that leads a woman from the reproductive to the non-reproductive time in her life. At this age, hot flushing and night-sweats are caused in almost all cases by a root deficiency in the kidneys. It should be understood that diet and emotional stress have a strong impact on the intensity hot flashes. Worry, anxiety, and fear can weaken and even damage the liver which over time can deplete the kidneys even more, thus increasing the severity of the hot flushing. Junk foods, the wrong protein to carbohydrate balance, and too many sweets will elevate blood sugar levels, increase internal inflammation and only add to the severity of the flushing and sweats.

The fundamental approach of Traditional Chinese Medicine at this stage of life is to boost and replenish the depleted kidney essence with natural substances that most closely resemble the ones in our bodies. The yin kidney essence is like the water in our automobile, controlling and balancing the fire from the engine. Herbal medicine is truly natural medicine, and it is most effective for replenishing yin kidney essence.

Over the counter formulas based around Black Cohosh, Chaste Berries and Trifolium, create a mild estrogenic response in the body and they are effective in less severe instances of hot flushing. More severe cases usually involve deep kidney yin deficiency with secondary imbalances in the liver and heart that can exacerbate anxiety and impair sleep. People will get best results from a yin rich formula that eliminates the fire by boosting the body's natural cooling waters. Early oriental medical gynecologists discovered plants like Rehmannia, Anemarrhena and Phellodendron whose molecular signatures nourish and replenish the deep essences of the kidneys. The patent formula, Zhi Bai Di Huang Wan (Anemarrhena and Phellodendron Combination) is safe and effective for most anyone suffering from hot flushes and overheating. Traditional Botanical Medicine's: "Great Essence Formula" combines ancient and modern wisdom for the treatment of hot flushing, overheating and the normal drying out of the body that occurs as we age.
